FITTING TETHER ANCHORAGE CHILD RESTRAINTS

WARNING

Always follow the child seat or restraint system manufacturer’s instructions when fitting tether straps. An incorrectly fitted tether strap will not offer full protection to the user in the event of an accident.

WARNING

Always pass the tether strap over the top of the seatback and underneath the head restraint when fitting a child seat or restraint. An incorrectly fitted tether strap will not offer full protection to the user in the event of an accident.

WARNING

The centre armrest must be raised to the stored position if a child seat or restraint system is fitted to the centre rear seating position. Failure to raise the centre armrest prevents the child seat or restraint system from fitting correctly. An incorrectly fitted child seat or restraint system will not offer full protection to the user in the event of an accident.

WARNING

If removing a head restraint in order to fit a child restraint, always secure the head restraint when storing it. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Always store a removed head restraint securely. In the event of an accident, an unsecured object could cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Always refit a removed head restraint after the child restraint is removed. The head restraint must be positioned correctly to restrain rearward movement of the head in a collision. An incorrectly adjusted head restraint increases the risk of death or serious injury in the event of a collision.

Tether strap anchor points are located behind the rear seats. Attach the tether straps from a child seat or restraint system to the anchor points.

To fit a tether strap:

  1. Fit the child restraint securely in the rear seat.

  2. Raise the head restraint.

  3. Pass the tether strap over the seatback and beneath the head restraint.

  4. Attach the tether strap hook to the anchor point. Make sure the hook is facing toward the back of the seat.

  5. Tighten the tether strap according to the manufacturer's instructions.
