Dodge Charger: OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS / Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage:

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / SAFETY / OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS / Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage:

WARNING!

Do not attach a tether strap for a rear-facing car seat to any location in front of the car seat, including the seat frame or a tether anchorage. Only attach the tether strap of a rear-facing car seat to the tether anchorage that is approved for that seating position, located behind the top of the vehicle seat. 

Dodge Charger. Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage:

  1. Look behind the seating position where you plan to install the child restraint to find the tether anchorage. You may need to move the seat forward to provide better access to the tether anchorage. If there is no top tether anchorage for that seating position, move the child restraint to another position in the vehicle if one is available.
  2. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing the child restraint.
  3. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor and the child seat. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint.

WARNING!

  • An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child. Use only the anchorage position directly behind the child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.
  • If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the seat- backs as you remove slack in the strap.

Center Tether Attachment

  1. If adjustable, lower the adjustable center head restraint to the full down position.
  2. Route the tether strap over the seatback and head restraint.
  3. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the center tether anchorage located in the panel between the rear seatback and the rear window.
  4. Remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
