Commedian Ron White has a bit about how no matter how masculine your vehicle is, you lose all credibility once you install a child car seat. I'll have to make a clip of it and post it, it'* absolutely priceless.

That'd be great. I'd love to see that. That'* a good point. They do make some cool looking ones now though. Some of the boosters look like racing seats. And, of course the Eddie Bauer ones are nice.

Hahaha yeah ive heard that its good stuff, in fact i just heard it the other day, and most of it escapes me right now, but i remember it was funny.


I have those on my car, they seem to be fairly solid, but they dont look it at all.

Okay, I got mine installed today.
The good news: It was completely free. It probably works. I have to find the tether attachment for the car seat, since I removed it.

How it installs: It installs with one bolt and locknut, and a steel reinforcing plate. If you poke your head into the trunk and look at the underside of the rear deck, there are some round an square holes. The plate has a notch that fits into one of the square holes, and the bolt goes through the round hole. They must cut a hole in your carpeted deck between the speakers for the anchor to install. It sticks up maybe an inch above the rear deck and then it has a metal tab sticking out of the top of it. The metal tab is rectangular with an oval hole in it for the tether hook.

The bad news: It looks really really bad. I will be creating some sort of a little housing cover to go over it, that will be carpeted, because with all the nice curvy flowing lines of a Bonneville, this looks like some unfinished piece of machinery sticking up in the middle of the rear deck.

I would have vastly preferred it to be closer to the back of the seat, like where the headrest of the seat meets the rear deck. But that'* not how it installs. I *will* take a photo to post here, but my camera was full.

Even looking bad, these are nice to have, to keep your kid'* seat from rocking around during turns, especially if you have leather seats. I have cloth, but even then a tall seat can rock back and forth. I'll be happy to tether the seat down. But I will definitely be making a housing for it.

Now you can see why I'm not happy with the way this thing looks at all:

I'm glad you posted that. Makes me think twice about getting that. Of course my seat will always be attached so maybe it wouldn't look that bad if it is attached. Let us know how your cover comes out.
