• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Is anyone using harnesses made by someone other than Hooker? I wondered about using a harness from Simpson or others.

Seems like Simpson is 1/3 the cost of Hooker and both offer wide straps, pad sets and hook/latch or cam type buckles. I haven't compared strength but i'd assume these are stout to go in drag cars,etc.

Any comments on the hook/latch type buckle? I use the cam at work...easy to use..but often find a lap belt not secure after anaccidental bump of the cam.
