How to keep harness shoulder strap from sliding?

I have my harnesses installed but am getting tired of them sliding off to the side or having to move them back over when trying to buckle up. I cant seem to get the straps tight enough around the rear cage bar to keep them from moving. How are your harnesses mounted so this doesn't happen?

Never argue with idiots- They just drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Most harness bars for your "H" type harnesses have retaining loops welded on that you thread your harness through to prevent this from happening. Without those retaining loops in place there is not much you can do.

Thats what I was thinking. I guess I need to figure out what material to use. Round rod may do the trick. At least I painted my cage myself so I can always touch it up. Hows the rhino sell going mosslager. Everytime I have crashed at Stoddered it seemed to hurt and caused alot of bike damage. F#@@ing Rocks

Anyone have any pictures of what I need to build up?

Well the Rhino sellings not going well. Not even one call. Everyone is saying to keep it and wait to see what insurance does so I think thats the plan right now. The healings going well. You are right about the rocks... I think I took one to the rib cage. Pretty hard to miss them out there. But for me its the closest place that is legal to camp and take the toys. Some simple round bar arched over each harness strap and welded on is all you need or go to Granger and order 4 split collars for the right size tubing of your harness bar and bolt them onto each side of your straps. This would be an easy clean fix.

like Moss said, should have small guides on the bars to prevent that, or seats like Mark and others have.

Instead of welding loops on the bar, go to Grainger and get the split collars. It'll look the best...
