FAA/TSO-C114 OEM quality AmSafe® 3-point diagonal (single strap) shoulder harness replacement / upgrade restraint for use on Mooney Model M20A thru early 1976 Mooney M20J that were not equipped with factory installed harnesses, and later model M20J and M20K aircraft with factory supplied harnesses. For those models that do not have the factory installation, a "Minor Change Kit" is available to create shoulder harness attachment points in the pilot or co-pilot position. You can purchase this kit with your belt order.
You will receive 1 (one) complete restraint assembly for 1 (one) seat - Pilot or Co-Pilot.
- 1 inertial reel equipped shoulder harness (single strap/diagonal over the shoulder)
- 1 lap belt with a lift lever buckle and end fittings
- 8130-3 airworthiness certificate
HOOK / QUICK RELEASE / CLIP END FITTINGS or BOLT-ON END FITTINGS? (there is an image with descriptions in the photos)
Mooney originally used hook/quick release/clip style end fittings. There were reports of a cotter pin rubbing and causing damage to the upholstery. Models that have hook/quick release/clip end fittings can install the bolt-on end fittings by removing the bolt the hook goes around, slipping the end fitting over the bolt and then securing it back into place.
ABOUT THE MINOR CHANGE INSTALLATION:
Your older Mooney Aircraft can be upgraded to a 3-Point Diagonal Shoulder Harness in the front by the incorporation of our "MINOR CHANGE" Installation Kit. The kit includes the necessary hardware items and instructions to complete the installation. The installation of 3-Point Diagonal Shoulder Harness assemblies, using our "MINOR CHANGE" Installation Kit, does not require FAA approval; as the installation does not require that the air frame structure be modified by drilling or welding. A sign-off from an A/P rated mechanic is required.
The Minor Change Kit is available here as an add-on and will automatically calculate by the # of belts ordered. If you order 2 belts and click "yes" for the kit it will show up on the invoice as qty 2 kits.) There is no need to order another minor change kit from the Mooney Minor Change A-G, early J page.
PLEASE NOTE: We Do Not Recommend 3-point Restraints With A Lift Lever Release For Aircraft With Manual Gear. The lift lever buckle can inadvertently be released which will disconnect the lap belt sections. Is the push button mechanism as solid as a lift lever buckle? They are both tested to very high standards and holds as well as the traditional buckle.
Over 50 different colors are available by Special Order at no additional cost. Please allow 4 weeks for delivery. Please Note: We cannot accept returns or provide refunds on Special Orders or Special Order Colors.
MOONEY M20F (and a few C's): Some of the Mooney's have a panel that restricts access to the door post making it basically impossible to add shoulder harnesses using our Minor Change Kit. We know it's been done, but we do not know the procedure being used.
