    Default Using ISOFIX and top tether together?

    I was just reading the safety manual of my VW and it has a section about how to install a car seat using both ISOFIX and top tether at the same time.

    Is that even possible?

    I thought that any seat purchased overseas with ISOFIX would not have a top tether, and any Australian seat would not have ISOFIX? Or can you purchase a seat in aus with both?

    (I am aware that ISOFIX on its own is not legal in Australia yet)

    I just searched 'isofix Australia' in google and the first page was from babyology and it said in Australia you will need to use both to meet standards once approved. So I guess seats brought in will have to have both.

    Ahh ok. So any overseas seats still won't be legal in Australia, how convenient!
