How to Securely Wrap Your Harness Around the Roll Cage: A Step-by-Step Guide

When it comes to motorsport, safety is paramount. One crucial aspect of ensuring driversafety is the proper installation of the harness system. At GSM Performance, we understand the importance of every detail in motorsport safety gear, which is why we’re proud to offer TRS harnesses among our selection. TRS Motorsport is known for its commitment to safety and quality, and in this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of wrapping your harness around the roll cage, as demonstrated by Jake from TRS Motorsport.

Step 1: Prepare the Three-Bar Slide

The first step involves adjusting the three-bar slide, which is a key component in the harness system. You’ll want to lift the slide and thread the harness webbing under it, then over the top, leaving some slack. This initial step is crucial for setting up the rest of the process smoothly.

Step 2: Wrap the Webbing Under the Roll Cage

Next, take the webbing and loop it underneath the roll cage. It’s important to ensure that the three-bar slide is positioned snugly against the roll cage. After looping the webbing under the roll cage, thread it back underneath the three-bar slide, pull it tight, and then loop it through the slide once more. This step is vital for securing the harness in place and preventing any movement during use.

Step 3: Secure the Webbing

The third step is perhaps the most critical for safety. After looping the webbing through the three-bar slide, you’ll need to double back on yourself, pulling the webbing tight. It’s essential to leave at least 10 centimeters (about 4 inches) of “tail” at the end of the webbing. This extra length is a safety measure to account for any potential slippage or elongation of the webbing in the event of an accident. Ensuring this extra length can make a significant difference in the harness’s effectiveness and the safety of the driver.

Step 4: Coil the Excess Webbing

Finally, with the harness securely wrapped and tightened, the last step is to manage any excess webbing. Start by coiling the webbing neatly, beginning from underneath to create a tight loop. Once you have a neatly coiled loop, secure it with a tie wrap. This step may require a bit of finesse, so don’t hesitate to ask for assistance to ensure the tie wrap is tight and the excess webbing is neatly managed.
