Nope, and there won't be until the US test sled gets a floor. We can't test seats with foot props .

That's why some of us order them from Sweeden. That looks like a UK seat. You could try on Amazon UK.

That looks interstesting but I would imagine for alot of people in the US there would be so many people not installing it correctly. I watched the video and there were alot of steps to get it installed propery. The more steps the more risk for doing it wrong.

A retainer clip is a pre-crash positioner used to keep the straps in place on the shoulders. It doesn't serve any safety function during a crash. I think the US is the only place that uses a retainer clip. On seats in other countries the harness has grippy stuff to help keep it in place.

Swedish seats don't have a chest clip. Ours doesn't. You can add one but its not a big deal apparently.
