Dont know if there are any downsides.

Who did your cage?
Has it been certified/log booked ?

here is my idea on the topic-

I was told once by an NHRA tech inspector to add stops to my cage to prevent the harness from sliding side to side.. It was NOT required.. BUT, the more i thought about it, he had a point. If your seat ever failed during a roll over, the harness would keep your head inside the side window away from the ground. so I added them on.

BTW----I am talking from experience---a few months later i crashed the car, the seat bracket broke and the harness did exactly what he said it would.

EDIT: the belts were attached to the cage cross bar by the B pillar.

what are you running for a seat?
