You need the mounting tabs that the webbing threads through. This is the ONLY safe way to do this.

I have to say, a 5-point harness is not the safest thing in a car without a roll cage. What do you intend to use as mounting points for the shoulder belts?
You CANNOT simply wrap them down to the floor. They should go straight back to a solid mount.

In a stock bodied car I use the two factory mounts for the lap belts, a plate reinforced bolt through the floor for the submarine belt and the cross bar of the roll cage for the shoulder belts.

As speedy suggests, it is practically impossible to mount what you have in a normal passenger car. You need a roll cage on which to attach the upper belts. And they are very restrictive and not comfortable for normal driving anyhow.

The car you are installing this in, is it for street use?

Most belt mfg sell them individually. Look for "floor mount kits". You'll see what I mean.
I know Simpson sells parts that fit most belts.
