I'm not familiar with the system, but its the only place it can really go. Will the dealer not let you try fit it, or at least give you all the measurements to check it!
In my other old car the shelf again wasn't strong enough but there was more room so I made up strong brackets between the underside of the shelf and the rear wheel arches and then bolted it all into place.
The seat belts have been used on both cars but fortunately not in anger.
Best of luck

I too thought SNG Barratt would be able to help, but sadly (and, in my experience, unusually) they couldn't have been less helpful.
As for mounting on the wheelarches, that is what I'd like to avoid. Since there are mounting points on the parcel shelf base, I'd like to use them. My concern is just whether there is enough clearance for the reels to fit between the shelf and the rear screen.
The answer is that, as I suspected, the inertia reels won't fit on to the existing mounting points on the rear parcel shelf because they're to big. So to fit them, new mounting points have to be installed, inboard of the existing ones and the shelf has to be strengthened. I've gone for static belts.
