Your Accord is equipped with three anchor points above the back of the rear seat. You’ll need to remove the plastic covers to access the metal anchors, though. To install a child seat with a tether:

  • Install the seat where you want it, and then route the seat belt through it according to the manufacturer’s directions.

  • Lock the shoulder belt if using a shoulder/lap belt combo.

  • Raise the headrest and locate the plastic cap covering the anchor. Lift the front edge.

  • Attach the tether to the anchor point.

  • Tighten the anchor strap to remove slack.
