Olny photo showing the window net from close up. As far as I can remember there were D loops that where welded to the rear of the cage/ braces to fix window net to. The top D loops where welded to the underside of the rear hoop about 300 - 400mm apart and the other lower ones were welded to a cross brace. Hope this helps.
you could always mount the net more veritical ,maybe have the main area picking up where the hip platebar meets the angled window roll cage pipe and the upper part goes to the rear roll cage bars somwhere then the actual teather from the window net mounts sumwhere near the (48mm) roll bar is???

These side nets are nt gonna hinder ur escape too much undo belts then its just a click of a buttonon what side you getting out on and wooola ur out!
you don't get the point fella its one thing to undo with arm restraints your talking about having a second thing to undo.
this takes time and it is another thing that can malfunction and hinder your escape and with most people using single layer suits (should be 2 layer min as with all other forms of motorsport in NZ) you only have about 4-6 seconds of protection from being burned.
and with arm restraints its only one leaver to undo for safety crews to get you out.
We run two window nets in the superstock, back to front on the right side, and vertically on the left side.The main reason for having them there is to slow head movement side to side, and an added extra to stop the drivers helmet from collecting the rollcage ( not that its very likely at all ). Of course its useful as an arm restraint too.And i cant see it malfunctioning, the right side one is a lever type, and where the left one is positioned will not hinder escape at all (vertical, not front to back)
I have just fitted one to my car two weeks ago,mine is a RJS type which came with the little D buckles,like ya helmet strap goes into.It also came with a couple of bigger buckles,The type you can get where you can buy with your seat belts it you want to bolt them in, instead of clip yours belts into the eye and put the saftey pin through.Anyway i used 1 of these buckles and welded it to the back of the rollcage pipe that goes across from side to side that attachs to the back of the head plate at the top and also welded it on the other rollcage pipe that comes forward from the rear that is welded to the side of the head plate.I took the other buckle and welded it half way down the brace pipe that goes from the top of the rollcage and plate on a angle down to the rear bumper,I would call that the upright pipes.i then threaded the straps through the slit in each buckle top and bottom then i threaded the straps through the little D buckles and back through it again as if you were doing up a helmet.these now pull up against the big buckles with no way of pulling through.The net then runs past the side of my racetech seat to the front and is connected to the rollcage on the mesh side of the pipe.Also with those D buckles you can adjust to lenghten or tighten to your desired length,Sorry if i have you totally confused,I would post a pic but i am not sure how.hope this is of sum help.
