    Head restraints and Top Tethers

    Pontiac G6 06 or 07.

    Car seat FF outboard, you can go under or over the head restraint to tether, the manual doesn't say one way or the other.

    What do you do?

    If neither manuals say a certain way then it's left up to you to decided. Which results in the best fit? That is the way I would go. Remember the most direct route is most of the times result in the best fit.

    I told her to try taking the head rest all the way off and storing in the trunk. But I'll share what you said. I just needed more opinions.
