Land Rover Discovery: Installing tether anchorage child restraints

Land Rover Discovery (2009–2016) Owner's Manual / Child safety / Installing tether anchorage child restraints

Always follow the child seat or restraint system manufacturer's instructions when fitting tether straps.

When fitting a child seat or restraint system, always pass the tether strap over the top of the seatback and beneath the head restraint.

If removing a head restraint in order to fit a child restraint, always secure the head restraint when storing it.

If a child seat or restraint system is to be fitted to the centre seating position, the centre armrest must be in the stowed position (folded into the seat).

The vehicle is equipped with tether anchorage points behind the second row seat frames. These should be used to attach straps from child seats or restraint systems.

Note: A tether anchorage is provided for the centre seat position. Do not use this anchor position with an ISOFIX child seat.

Always fit the upper tether anchorage and tighten correctly.

Installing tether anchorage child restraints

Tether strap anchor point locations:

  1. Fixed rear seats.
  2. Sliding rear seats.

Install the tether straps as follows:

  1. Install the child restraint securely in one of the rear seating positions.
  2. Pass the tether strap over the seatback, beneath the head restraint and between the seatback and the loadspace cover.
  3. Attach the tether strap hook to the tether anchor point on the back of the seat. Make sure the tether strap hook is facing the correct way, as illustrated.
  4. Tighten the tether strap according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Note: For 5 seat vehicles fitted with sliding seats, the loadspace floor should be lifted and moved rearwards. This is to allow access to the tether anchor points. The loadspace floor should be replaced after attaching the tether straps.

Australian vehicles only

For 5 and 7 seat vehicles fitted with sliding rear seats, the seats should be adjusted to the foremost position prior to attaching the tether straps. The seats should then be returned to the rearmost position to aid fitment of the child seat.
