Yeah, I personally wouldn't be comfortable with tethering straight down like that.

Me either. It needs to be toward the front of the car. I'd have untethered it too.

I now have the same model Odyssey and would like to tether our RF seat. There was a car-seat.org blog review of the latest Odyssey van in which she demonstrated only 1-2 acceptable locations for the tether; neither was beneath the 2nd row seat. The reviewer found the inside base of the passenger seat to be an acceptable spot for RF passenger/center seats. For center/driver side seats she found the bars where the front row center console attaches, but this would require removing the console.

I tried today to get the d-ring strap around the passenger seat leg (she said it takes every last centimeter of the strap in her video), but I still couldn't get it to loop all the way around in the limited time I had.

You could also call Honda for an acceptable location.
I have a town and country and this is what I did. It works well and the seat doesn't move an inch!
