Default Lap Belt/Rennline Harness Mounting Question

I am trying to mount the lap belt receiver and the Rennline tunnel side lap belt harness mount to OEM GT2/3 OEM seat.
Based on PET all parts in the picture except for Rennline and the washer are Porsche parts.
When I tighten the bolt, I am able to move both the lap belt receiver and Rennline mount. Is that ok?
I am mainly concerned about the Rennline harness lap belt moving.I tried to mount the seat belt receiver under the black spacer (against the seat mount), but then the black spacer moves freely, so I do not think that is the correct way to mount things.

I say yes to front and rear movement. Not side to side. Movement allows the belts to be used in their shortest length. If ridged you have the problem of it shifting, thereby allowing you to move before belt tension is taken up

Sorry I did not have time to take pictures before I took the car to the shop after the seats were installed in the car.
I ended up buying BK mount from OG for mounting GT3 seat to OEM Porsche sliders. The mount provides a slight tilt backwards (thanks to Tony P for telling me about the need to do that). It may have also lowered the seat, but I did not try the passenger side.
I also ended up taking the clip off the harness and swapping it with 2" "bolt through" clip to avoid using the Rennline harness mount in the picture. It is now nice and tights.
I bought Sparco 2" enduro harnesses. I still like the Schroth enduro that I have in the race car better, but Sparcos seem to be fine.
I am happy with how things worked out. If you are at SP at the end of March, come by and try the seats, and see the DAS roll bar.

Thanks, Nadir - I'm supposed to be helping a friend move back from Atlanta (I'm driving one of his cars) at the end of the month. I'm hoping to be back Saturday night, so hopefully can sneak out to Summit on Sunday. Thanks!!
