Harness and Harness Bar

So I recently purchased one of the harness bars made by Massive and two 4-point Corbeau bolt in harnesses from FSwerks. The car isn't going to be raced. The purchase was more to make myself feel better while driving the car seeing as I haven't figured out how to make the airbags work with the Corbeau seats I have in the car. I figure a harness might do a bit of a better job than just a seatbelt.

Which brings me to my question. How does one set these things up to be the safest possible? I know the shorter the straps can be made the better due to stretching during an impact. And I believe I can basically use the bar to correct the angle from the anchor point over the back of the chair and such so it won't crush me in an impact. The seats have slots in the back for the harness to come through.

Basically, how do you set these up? Thanks
