Re: What does the top tether do?
Interesting! Guess if that ever happens I will have some research to do. I'd pretty much settled on a britax seat for in there since it's a tight front to back space. But I hadn't really looked at seats with anti rebound. Hmm... always so much to think about.

My 2.5 year old's seat is RF tetherd (Radian) but in a situation where I feel rebound would be a bad idea for a newborn (truck with low seat back and nothing between glass and baby) I would opt for a seat with an anti-rebound bar.
