Here is the link to what I purchased:

There is no way of locking the rear seatbelts as they are of the inertia reel type. I can't see how connecting the tether to the belts as shown in that picture would be of any benefit, or even safe.
Likewise for using the coat hanger clips in the other picture. The Jeep's are plastic and look like they wouldn't take much force to snap them off.
Your best alternative would be to look at the child safety seat tether points that are located on the back side of the rear seat. You can access them by folding down either side of the rear seat. Those seem to be the strongest anchor points, and for obvious reason.
Another would be the cargo tie down rings on the floor behind the seat. I still think the child safety seat tether points would be stronger though.
