Hi ppl,
I had the saftey hook attachemnt thing removed from my EF when the 16:9' speakers were fitted.
Now some 7 years down the track, I have a baby who cant travel in the EF as its lacking this harnes point. (It was just next to the speaker)

My question is - there is a plastic cap covering a hole right in the middle of the parcel shelf (just near the back of the seat)
Is that a provision to add another harness point?

Any info would be great ......

yeah it is ... they came out with 1 restraint harness and then on the other side a place for a second one to be fitted! Pull that plastic thing out and you have a threaded hole you can bolt in a restraint clip!

95% sure you can fir the harness point to the middle. That's all the cap seems to cover so i can't imagine it being a problem. see if the harness point fits into the hole securely, if it does you should be OK.

Read your owners manual - that will tell you where the harness points are!

Yer pretty close mate.

Might wanna be careful with who you tell about that one... pretty sure 3 restraint points are an ADR requirement....

But the middle one will be fine for keeping bubs safe!

If you have only one child it is recommended to put in middle. Takes away heaps of storage space but they recommend that in case of side impact.
