You may use one vest in two separate vehicles. All you need to purchase is an extra tether strap, 02-27EZ100TC. A tether mount is included with the vest.
Most standard vehicles are installed with a single tether mount per seat which works with the Tether Strap. The Locking Clip is an option in lieu of mandatory. It helps with sliding the straps of the vest through the vehicle lap belt. To use the floor mounted strap, additional tether mounts will need to be installed into the vehicle.
Vehicle Mount Options:
Check your vehicle manual for tether location and weight limits to use the E-Z-ON® Tether Mount. Unless noted, vehicle anchors can secure the E-Z-ON® Tether Mount. Locate your vehicle anchor. ‘99 vehicle models and newer have factory installed tether anchors.
Secure the 2 snap hooks to the vest at the passenger’s shoulders. Attach the single tether hook to the anchor bracket and adjust.
Adjust the tether length by pulling the web end through the tilt-lock adjuster. Lift the tilt lock to create slack in the webbing. The vest should fit the passenger snug and the tether adjusted without slack.
When your passenger exceeds your tether anchor weight limit. It is necessary to replace the factory installed tether anchor with your E-Z-ON® hardware kit included.
This kit is also for vehicles without a factory installed tether anchor.
E-Z-ON® Tether Mount must be used with a vehicle belt. Lap and shoulder belts can be used with the Tether Mount with a locking clip. Securing the tether to the metal slots on the vest provides the upper body support, without using the shoulder belt.
Attach snap hooks to D-rings or metal adjuster slots on vest. E-Z-ON® Tether Mount may be used on certain captain chairs only with E-Z-ON® Vests.
