    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!

    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.

    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.
