Modifying the roll cageThe Safety Devices roll cage is a standard six-point cage, with fixed rear diagonal.
I fitted a longitudinal cross brace, that runs across the width o car behind the front seat, and a pair of diagonal door braces on both sides of the car, all made from cold drawn steel supplied by Safety Devices. The longitudinal brace is mounted with saddle brackets, so it can be removed if required. I've never taken it off in 10 years, but should the need arive, I can if I need to. The additional bars were added to make the car safer in my opinion, and they comply with the relevant safety drawings in the MSA Blue Book.
The two ROPS certificates for the Safety Devices cage are both available for download here:
