Stow your car seat top tether strap!

Tether Storage Collage

 

Don’t leave a tether strap hanging! A tether strap may have a long tail to accommodate anchors that are far from the vehicle seat. Be sure to appropriately bundle and store the excess so it doesn’t get caught hanging outside of the vehicle or create a strangulation hazard for a child. Many seats have a handy pouch or compartment for exactly this reason. Rubber bands, zip ties, or hook and loop ties are perfect for making a neat bundle to tuck away.
