RF tethered MA - can the tether be vertical?

Minnesota

CPST Instructor
A friend is installing her MA RF and wonders if the tether can run exactly vertical to the floor where she has her tether point. It does not go under the seat or backward at all, just straight down. Is that allowed?

TIA!

I believe this is OK - as long as the tether point is bolted to the car. Also make sure it is not tethered to the seat that the child restraint is installed on.
