Reverse Belt Path Video


Today, I’m posting a short video clip of a long (or reverse) seat belt path installation.  This fitment is in the 2nd row captain’s chair in a third generation, 2006 Honda Odyssey.  This type of install is allowed on certain child restraint models, such as the Britax Frontier and Britax Regent.  If permitted in the child restraint owner’s manual, this seatbelt routing may result in a more secure installation than the standard short seat belt path.  This type of install can take a little more time and effort.  You have to make sure not to get the seatbelt twisted and it may be a little more difficult to feed the slack from the lap belt up into the shoulder belt retractor.  A second pair of hands can be a big help!  Without further ado:


Tips for tricky Frontier installations and instructions for the long belt path method can be found at the Britax USA website.  Instructions are also included on Page 28 of the owner’s manual.  Here’s a much better quality video from Britax:
