    Swedish Vs Australian Rfing Tethering

    I now have a seat that gives me the option to do either. I've tethered the Swedish way because that's what I know how to do. Australian tethering would reduce over rotation, but Swedish reduces anti rebound. Which do you think is more concerning?

    I think Australian is annoying, so that's why I've never done it.

    The Australian method looks like it would just give ds something to mess with.

    Australian is okay, I find that you have to loosen it off to put the child in then tighten it after wards, which can be annoying.
