Inertia seat belts

Evevnin all, I have a racing harness seat belt system fitted at the moment, I'de like to change it to inertia reel belts, any recommendations lads ? Is there some issue with vertical/horizontal fitting, I seem to recall there is a difference when mounting them. I'de like to mount these on the lower crossmember of the roll bar.
