The latch that is on the top is called the tether strap. It is only used in the forward facing position.

Combi instruction


It depends on your car seat. Follow your instruction manual for your child seat and your car. Not all seating positions have tether anchors.
"Rear-facing only" seats do not tether (these have a separate base and carrier)
"Rear-facing convertible" seats may tether.
"Forward-facing" seats usually tether (some MUST tether).

Can 3rd row seating be added to a 2002 chevy tahoe z71 that didn't originally come with it?


No. THe latch points for the removeable third row seating has to be factory installed and anchored during manufacturing. The third row seat latches in similar to the same latches the doors used to close. To maintain the safety durign a crash those anchors have to be attached to body frame during assembly. There are aftermarket foam seats that are rear facing and simply sit on the floor of the cargo area but they are not safe for use while vehicle in motion and are aftermarket items. They are typically used to sit on while the car is parked and the lift gate is open, such as backing up and watching a sporting event. They are not suitable for long term use or while vehicle is in motion.

How do you install the car seat for rear facing?


Hey Just posting this for future reference for other people since I see that you posted over a month ago :) ..

To install the car seat in rear facing I used the latch system. (you can use the latch system if your vehicle has latches..they are tiny metal bars in between the seats)

First of all with this dumb car seat I found out that the latch system was not in the proper place so if you find that yours is not where the diagram shows (in the manual) then you'll have to take off the seat cover and manually put them in their place. Then go ahead and clip onto the latches in the rear facing position. If the car seat is too far forward then inline the seat. If the car seat is still not leaning far enough back to be level with the ground (there should be two level marks on the top/side of the car seat) place a rolled towel (or roll a 2x4 in a rolled towel like i did) then clip onto the latches. Hope this helps someone.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

LATCH Attached?


The latch can be used in the rear facing position.

On mine there was a screw which secured the nylon to the seat.

You need to remove the screw and remove the LATCH belt.

The LATCH belt must then be threaded through the belt location under the child's seat, rather than behind.

Pay attention if there are any arrows on your LATCH belt which point up, so that you thread the belt the right way. Remember that the seat is going to be rear facing! : )

On the side of my seat it shows a picture with the LATCH in use, threaded underneath the child's seat. Maybe your shows this too.

Hope this works for you!

LATCH belt storage in rear position


 it definitely is NOT self explanitory as to where the LATCH is supposed to be anchored when not in use. It took some time, but I figured it out. The Top Tether should be hooked on the recline prop/foot/base area - depending on which way you have this positioned - for forward or rear-facing use, the piece to hook the top tether on could either be towards the front (rf mode) or back (ff mode). It's just a simple cut out in the plastic. The Lower Anhcors need to be clipped to a small plastic notch along the back side of the seat shell - you have to lift up the cover to get a good look at them - they are towards the top of the seat on the back and don't really look like much but do secure the lower anchors when attached.
I hope that helps! Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
