How do you attach a child seat with a tether?
While you can secure your child’s car seat with the seat belt in the back seat of the car, you can also attach a rear tether to provide additional security (the tether should be included from the manufacturer with the car seat). Here’s what you need to know about using the anchor points in the car:
There are three upper anchor points located above the top of the seatback.
Install the car seat and then anchor the seat with the tether to the appropriate anchor point.
Tighten the tether.
Route the seat belt behind the car seat.
Buckle the car seat.
Put the seat belt into automatic locking mode.
