It sounds like you have it correct. Technically, you can also rout it over the top of the seat and then down to the same anchor, though it probably wont be long enough.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by aparsa:
It is the 2nd row chair behind the driver's seat. The tether is wrapped down under the front of the 2nd row chair in which the car seat is placed. Is this okay, or does it need to be tethered to some structural part of the driver's seat?
Thanks for the kind words I don't know if I qualify as an expert, but I am a trained Child Passenger Safety Technician and have a reasonable amount of experience. I also have a site on carseats at http://www.car-safety.org and one on the Odyssey at http://www.car-safety.org/odyssey.html . Thanks again!<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by eslayter:
I have our Roundabout tethered to the hook that is attached to the bottom of the seat. When I try to move the Roundabout, the whole van shakes right with it - there is no wiggle room for the Roundabout at all with the tether snugged tight.
I believe this is the correct hookup, as I went to a carseat check recently and they gave me a gold star for my hookup.
It appears that Cavalier is an expert in this field...maybe he can verify this setup for you.
We now have our roundabout front facing, but did have it rear facing when we first purchased the odyssey. When I had it rear facing, I ran the tether down the front of the seat and hooked it to the hook attached to the bottom of the seat.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by aparsa:

Erik - is your Roundabout rear-facing?
