    I was thinking, "What kind of baby sits in executive seats?"

    All this after seeing a commercial for this new movie earlier this morning.

    I agree! The pic of the other child seat with step going over top of headrest is going to leave on hell of a crease! There has to be another alternative way to strap the child seat down.

    What Britax is it and is that the default rear strap? I may need one. Well, not me but you know what I mean...

    Most of Britax models have the Y rear anchor strap and it's stock that way. We got the top one because it's best rating for side head impact 40% better than the other models. We added padding on the sides of the Y as well. The safety belt locks in inside the child seat and is safer as well. Holds a child upto 65lbs.

    Yeah, I couldn't figure out how else to run that additional anchor. I suspect it was not a fully thought out portion of the design! That "Y" strap is pretty cool I have to admit.

    The good news is, by the time the seat goes away, this car will have been replaced with a newer Tesla!
