I've been unhappy with the shoulder harnesses on the CTsw as they loosen up constantly. So I worked with Barrington Black at Schroth, and we came up with a great replacement set of belts that Arian at Flight Design USA has approved for an MRA. They were right at $1000 for a pair of the rotary buckle versions and while I didn't price it out, the automotive seatbelt flap release version might be $600 a pair. I had been quoted $1800 for the rotary version from Aircraft Belts, Inc. They are set up so you pull the lap belt up to tighten instead of down like the stock belts, which was always a challenge in the CT. They offer a ton of colors for the belts and the buckle. The part number will change based on your color choices, but if you want exactly what is depicted, call Barrington and give him these part numbers: 4-01-KY0223REVA 4-01-KY5223REVA After you give them the order, you need to fill out a form or two to become a customer and to set up a payment method. This was the more frustrating part, but it's worth it. The belts take 8 weeks to be delivered, but could be expedited for a fee to cut that time in half. The fee was around $400, so I was forced to be patient. The belts don't loosen, they are comfortable and fit nicely. I'm extremely happy with them. They are adjustable at the mounting position, so you have some leeway when you install them. I had to shorten the straps about 4" or so. Very easy to do. After installing, contact Arian to get the MRA for your paperwork, which is $65.
