    Nautilus - Can it be top tethered only in booster mode?

    I searched, but couldn't really find what I needed and I haven't been on in quite a while, so I'm way out of the loop. No, we're nowhere near needing a booster, but I've been wondering about this for a while.

    I know the Nautilus can be LATCH'd in booster mode, but can it be top tethered only (such as if the vehicle has top tether anchors, but no lower anchors)?

    Thanks!

    Yes, my email from Graco CS says that you can use either the lower anchors or the tether or both in booster mode.

    Cool. I've been wondering about this also (older vehicles here, with top tether anchors, but no lower anchors in the seat bight).

    yeaaaa! i'm so excited about this! this is one of the reasons I bought this seat for my 5 year old a few days ago...but I was forgetting that our current car only has tether anchors, not latch. so, glad to know that when she outgrows the harness, we'll still be able to use the tether. Thanks for the info!
