Child restraint system top tether anchorages are located on the back of the rear seatbacks.

This symbol indicates the position of the tether anchor.

1. Route the child restraint system top tether over the seatback.

For vehicles with adjustable headrest, route the top tether under the headrest and between the headrest posts, otherwise route the top tether over the top of the seatback. In case of interference between the child restraint system and the headrest remove the particular head restraint for better fitment of the child restraint system.

2. Connect and tighten the top tether to the corresponding child restraint system to secure the child restraint system.

A child can be seriously injured or killed in a collision if the child restraint system is not properly anchored to the car and the child is not properly restrained in the child restraint system. Always follow the child restraint system manufacturer’s instructions for installation and use.

WARNING - Top tether

Never mount more than one child restraint system to a single top tether or to a single top tether anchorage point. The increased load caused by multiple child restraint system may cause the top tethers or anchorage points to break, causing serious injury or death.

WARNING - Child restraint system check
