They hold only the seat, not the child,, correct? Reason, I ask, is when you install a 4 or 5 point harness system in a vehicle, you have to be careful not to secure the straps too low compared to the shoulder level of the person in the seat as it could cause major injuries to the persons back. In the vehicle situation, the straps are the same straps that go thru the seat back and across the shoulds and down to the latch between the legs... As long as these straps are not part of the harness that holds the child in, you are good to go.

Hmmm... Is that some sort of kit you order, or is that something you figured out yourself? I'd like to do the same. Any info you can share would be much appreciated!

All child /baby seats (Except infant and booster seats) has a way to secure it with either the stock seat belts or straps that go from the chair to metal hoops in the lower part of the cars seat (if equipped) My jeep is not.
They also all have straps the go to a lower point behind the seat.
If you look in the back seat of almost every vehicle you'll see two or three little loops made out of flat sheet-metal. Sometimes covered by a plastic cover. They are there for the baby seats...

In other words . Its a standard baby seat strap... They all have them..
If the don't through it away......

Okay, you answered my question. Please keep in mind, I'm an old fart that hasn't seen a car seat in over 20 years I was just concerned about the design of the seats and if the design (not your install) was safe for your kids.
Like I said, you answered my question.

There is a write up somewhere out there that gives more details on exactly which post needs to be bent.
Doesn't work on some models. Can't do it on mine.

I just used trim panel retainers for the holes from the tire carrier and rubber bumpers. Needed two different sizes. Trim Retainers 1 / Regular or Bulk Packaging

A plastic plug button works well for the hole from the brake light wire.

Both readily available at any auto parts store.

Total cost: negligible

I put her up on the wash rack for the first time since I've owned it.
It's amazing how much mud can stay plastered in an undercarriage.
After a hot pressure wash I found out the previous owner was nice enough
to spray rubber liner under it, but apparently ran out towards the rear.

^ Damn I wish I had one of those. Probably makes cleaning the undercarriage 1000x easier.
