How do you use a tether to secure a child seat?
If your child’s car seat or booster seat includes a tether, it’s highly recommended that you use it. Tethers provide important security for both front and rear facing car seats, as well as booster seats of all sizes. Using the tether is also very easy. Here’s how:
Make sure the car seat or booster seat is positioned correctly
Locate the tether anchor point on the back of the rear seat in the car
Lift the plastic cover out of the way
If necessary, raise or remove the head restraint on the seat
Extend the tether and latch the hook over the anchor point
Remove the slack from the tether (follow the seat manufacturer’s directions)
