Child Seat Question

Just got my new Tesla and trying to put the child seat in the back. I am used to have a latch point on the back of the rear seat to attach the strap on the back of the child seat to keep the seat from tipping forward in a sudden stop. There doesn't appear to be a latch point for this. Am I missing something here or do you have to use the rear shoulder strap in some fashion to accomplish this.

To clarify, you mean for a forward-facing car seat? There is indeed a tether receptacle on the back of the rear seats. It is VERY well hidden. Essentially, it's a tiny cut in the fabric on the back of the seats. If you rub your hands around below the headrests you'll feel them. There's one for each of the three rear seating positions.

Thanks, just what I was looking for. Yes, talking about a forward facing seat.

Since the rear headrests don't have a "hole" in them the rear anchor strap has to go over the top of the head rest, which seems quite insecure to me because of the inherent slack in the strap. Is there a solution to this?

Thanks.

You are supposed to tighten it down over the top of the headrest, which will depress down into it. This is covered in the user manual.
