Travel Vest ?s

Can I use the travel vest with lap and shoulder belt and tether like you would a car seat or should I just use belt? I've read the manual about ten times but it doesn't say! Thanks!

Travel Vest ?s

Can I use the travel vest with both the lap/shoulder belt and top tether anchor? I've read the manual but it doesn't say! Thanks!

Re: Travel Vest ?s

You're asking about the Ride Safer Travel Vest (RSTV), right? My understanding is that you can tether the RSTV when using a lap-shoulder seatbelt if you wish to use the tether. You're required to use the tether if you're using a lap-only seatbelt. ETA: LOL, I was approving and replying to your unregistered post while you logged in and reposted your question. I merged everything together here into a single thread.

Re: Travel Vest ?s

Yes, the pp is right. Though the use of the tether is recommended for side impact stabilization. So I would use it if you have an anchor.
