I have a Metal King Pro deadlift suit(has velcro straps) for conventional pulling. Could this be used in a meet for squatting, with or without my Inzer briefs? I practice squatting wide and narrow, so I could use either setup.

If it would work, should I tighten the straps for the squat or just leave it the same as deadlift setup?

I have never tried it, but I don't think you would get the same amount of weight out of a DL suit like you would a SQ suit. The cuts are alot different. So I would just recommend getting a SQ suit instead of using your DL suit. Just my .2cents!!!!!!

Ive seen this done a few times, there is actually a decent carryover but the suit won't last long. Way better off to get a real suit.
