Installing a non-LATCH equipped car seat in your car is very easy. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Place the child seat in the car in the position where you want the child to ride.

  • Route the seat belt through the child seat’s anchor points as described in the manufacturer’s instructions.

  • Latch the seat belt securely.

  • Tighten the seat belt and make sure that the seat is secure.

  • If using a shoulder/lap belt combo (any seat but the center position in the back of your Accord), make sure the shoulder belt is locked. To do this, just:

  1. Pull the shoulder belt toward you slowly until it stops.

  2. Let the belt retract on its own.

  3. Pull on the belt to make sure it’s locked.
