To tether, or not to tether? That is the question.

If you have purchased a convertible or all-in-one car sear, or a 5-point harness booster seat, you will notice it has both lower anchors and a tether strap.  For most car seats, you will only use the tether in forward-facing mode. When in rear-facing mode, make sure you securely store the tether following your manufacturer’s guidelines. Always check your car seat owner’s manual for specific instructions about your car seat.

The tether is a very important part of your car seat’s forward-facing installation. It helps to limit your child’s head movement in a crash by 4 – 6 inches. Check your vehicle owner’s manual to find the tether anchor locations in your car. If an anchor is available, the tether should always be used with your forward-facing car seat.

Did you know?

The Evenflo Gold Revolve360 features the Tether360—a unique system that requires tether usage in both rear- and forward-facing installations. Installing the Revolve360 with the seat belt and tether is a true one-and-done installation for both rear-facing or forward-facing modes.

To reduce injuries, boosters help guide seat belts onto children’s strong bones. For older children who have outgrown the height or weight limit of a car seat with a harness, a booster seat provides an important transition until the vehicle seat belts fit correctly on their own.
