Can't you use the "latch" points in the back for the shoulder belts?
Those would be the mounting points for child safety seats.
Seems it would be easy to use a climbing caribiner for easy mount/dismount to those "latch" points.
Still trying to figure out a convenient mount for the front 2 points though.
No, you cannot. The LATCH system was only engineered for 25-60 or so pounds. The force you'll create on it in a wrech is more than enough to deform or break it.

The convenient mount point for the lap belts are the bolts that hold the stock lap belts to the frame. Just replace with eye bolts and you have removable belts.

Another note on this. At the last event I was at there was a guy there with a Focus with as set of Sparco belts where the "y" ent of the belts just used the stock buckle insert. In other words, snap in , snap out. Just another idea.

Thanks for the info.
Looks like I'll ditch the "Latch" idea.

I did bring some other information with me today.
Check out CG-Lock.com.
This is what I was talking about for the stock belts.
At least, it's a step in the right direction.
Anyone ever used one?

I haven't, but I've heard some nice things about it.
