    Tether point for a 2017 Toyota Sienna

    Just bought a new Sienna mini van. Trying to install a Britax convertible in the 2nd row for our 2 1/2 year old. Trying to figure out where to hook the tether. Where is a good place? Would it be ok to go under the seat of the van and hook it to the tether point on the back of the seat? We don't want the straps in the way of getting her in (going over the top). In our old Sienna we had it attached to the bottom of the driver's seat, but it's more enclosed on the 2017 and we're not sure about taking off all that plastic.

    Re: Tether point for a 2017 Toyota Sienna

    Rear facing? There may not be a place, and Toyota has gone back and forth about allowing rear facing tethering.

    Would an anti-rebound bar make your life easier? It'll do the same thing without having to have straps anywhere.

    But no, you cannot go under the seat to the forward facing tether anchor.
