Safety first guide 65



Seat didn’t come with latch or top tether. Using it rear facing with seat belt but was curious why it doesn’t have a top tether.

Hello, did you buy this seat new?

The lower anchor connector strap and hooks often are bundled in the inside of the seat. The tether anchor ships connected.

If you bought it new from a retailer and it doesn't have these, I would return it as defective.

If you bought it used, it may have been in a crash or otherwise damaged. I would recommend replacing the seat as it may not be safe.


I bought it from a friend. I didn’t realize it didn’t have a tether or latch hooks until I had already had it a little while.
