How do I use the seat belt with the detachable anchor?

The rear seat belt may have a detachable anchor to help improve safety. Here’s how to use it: 1. Remove both the small latch plate, and the standard latch plate from the slot in the ceiling. 2. Buckle the small latch plate into the anchor buckle, located directly beneath the ceiling slot. 3. Buckle the standard latch plate into the standard buckle, just as you would with the front seats. 4. When you unbuckle the seatbelt, you can keep the small latch plate connected, and only unbuckle the standard latch plate. After unlatching the standard latch plate, buckle it into the anchor buckle, and the belt will be ready to use again.
