Tether Straps

A tether strap is an additional strap that secures the top of a car seat to the vehicle’s seat. Car manufacturers began to install attachment anchors in some vehicles in September 1999.

If your vehicle doesn’t have an anchor and your car seat doesn’t have a tether strap, we recommend that you get them. Contact the manufacturer or dealer of your vehicle for the anchor installation kit and the manufacturer of your car seat for a tether strap installation kit.
