Child restraint anchorages
Child restraint anchorages

Your Volvo is equipped with child restraint top tether anchorages in the rear seat. They are located on the rear side of the backrests.

Securing a child seat

1. Place the child restraint on the rear seat.

2. Route the top tether strap under the head restraint and attach it to the anchor.

3. Attach lower tether straps to the lower ISOFIX/ LATCH anchors. If the child restraint is not equipped with lower tether straps, or the restraint is used in the center seating position, follow instructions for securing a child restraint using the Automatic Locking Retractor seat belt (see page 38).

4. Firmly tension all straps.

Refer also to the child seat manufacturer's instructions for information on securing the child seat.

NOTE
On models equipped with the optional cargo area cover, this cover should be removed before a child seat is attached to the child restraint anchors.

WARNING
Х Never route a top tether strap over the top of the head restraint. The strap should be routed beneath the head restraint.
Х Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts or harnesses. The anchorages are not able to withstand excessive forces on them in the event of collision if full harness seat belts or adult seat belts are installed to them. An adult who uses a belt anchored in a child restraint anchorage runs a great risk of suffering severe injuries should a collision occur.
Х Do not install rear speakers that require the removal of the top tether anchors or interfere with the proper use of the top tether strap.
