I'm thinking that clipping on to the "narrowest" part (wrist?) of a floppy suit ain't gonna cut it.

Yep,ran this last year,it clearly states adjusters!!!These are the style they are wanting and doesnít say anything about sewn in being illegal,says,if it is NON-sewn in then must fit tight at smallest part of arm so that means if sewn in must be all good!! I feel rule change is for adjuster only?Huh

The rings are sown into the jacket.

Having spent time with Allan from Simpson at Pomona this past weekend there is without doubt confusion as to what is acceptable and what isnít. I know that Simpson are trying to clarify the rule and what is or what isnít acceptable.

I just bought brand new Simpson arm restraints late last year as my previous ones were out of date. Guess Ill have to look at them when I get home and figure out if they are legal or not

I got tired of trying to figure it out, so I ordered a set yesterday from Deist. Not worth $40 to waste any more time! Dead Horse grin

Pegasus Racing actually has the specified adjustment plate available for 1.75 to 2 inch straps. Duke and I are going to look at his Simpson arm restraints and see if they could be converted to this type of adjuster, would that void any type of warrentee or the SCTA new rule? We also considered having some water jet cut from some stainless plate to the exact strap width. Going with the DJ stuff is probably the best way.

I know that the SCTA does not make these type of changes without a good reason, have they seen failures of arm restraints with the welded "D" ring configuration?

I think we need way more clarification of what is actually required for hardware and where. My Pyrotect restraints have a large welded D- ring on the end of the strap that the seat belt latch goes through,  a pair of small D rings to tighten the arm bands, and a one piece "ADJUSTER" on the restraint strap between the arm and the belt. I have no idea if this is legal for SCTA.

Lee Kennedy kept ours after the incident... although they did not fail, he sent them to DJ for inspection... He also mentioned they had "several d ring failures" in arm restraints and was working on a rule change.... Left my arm restraints with DJ to be put in compliance with the new rules...  Must be about time to call them again and see if they are ready
