WHY under the heading "Top-Tethers" do you have written "Top tethers can be used alone". This is absolutely untrue. A tether mush be used with either the new latch system or a seatbelt. A car seat would fly around a car with only a top tether attached. PLEASE correct this error!

it does seem a bit could be re-worded so nobody gets the idea and stops reading at that point that they can use the top tether with nothing else hooking the seat to the car's seat.

i realise what it means (that it can be used with a seatbelt instead of the lower anchors) but i can see where it would be misleading to an uneducated reader.

No, it's definitely top tethers can be used in, top tethers can be used with seatbelts, you don't need the Lower anchors to be able to use a top tether....

Then I think it should be re-worded so as not to confuse anyone.
"Top tethers can be used alone, and they are also one of the components of the new LATCH system."
"Top tethers are also one of the components of the new LACTH system, and may be used alone without the latch anchors."
