Child restraint strap overlooked, misunderstood

July 8, 2013

A simple strap meant to prevent a child restraint from tipping forward in a crash is ignored by many parents. It is called a top tether, and a study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that it is used only slightly more than half the time, according to an article in the April 2013 issue of Status Report. When parents neglect to attach the tether, it is most often because they don't know it exists.
