How do I use the tether strap anchor brackets?

All three rear seats have tether strap anchor brackets behind the head restraint, to accommodate certain child restraint systems, and improve rear seat safety. To use these anchor brackets, run the child restraint system’s tether strap over the seat back, and attach it to the anchor bracket, which will first need to be opened. Make sure the head restraint is lowered to its lowest setting, and then run the tether strap over it.
