Honda Ridgeline top tether

The Honda Ridgeline top tether requires that you loop the strap through a bar near the headrest and then feed it down to an anchor point at the base of the seat. I'm trying to install a forward facing Diono Radian. The clip on the Radian top tether strap is preventing me from being able to loop the strap through that bar near the headrest. The bar itself is really fat and the clip on my top tether isn't exactly small either. Are there any work arounds for this? I prefer to use the top tether, for obvious reasons.

Hi Kerry. So you're trying to feed the top tether J-hook under the bar? You can't slide the tether strap under the guide bar? It's been a while since I installed a seat in a Ridgeline, but that's what I remember doing.

I think it might be an issue of where the adjuster hits. Unfortunately some seats aren't compatible there because of this.
