Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W205) 2015 - 2021 Owners Manual: Securing Top Tether

WARNING Risk of injury or death if the rear seat backrests are not locked after installing Top Tether belts
If the rear seat backrests are not locked, they could fold forwards in the event of an accident or during braking or sudden changes of direction.

As a result, child restraint systems cannot perform their intended protective function.

Rear seat backrests that are not locked can also cause additional injuries, e.g. in the event of an accident.

  • Always lock rear seat backrests after installing Top Tether belts.
  • Observe the lock verification indicator.

If the rear seat backrest is not engaged and locked, the red lock verification indicator will be visible.

If the child restraint system is equipped with a Top Tether belt: The risk of injury can be reduced by Top Tether. The Top Tether belt facilitates an additional connection between the child restraint system attached with LATCH-type (ISOFIX) and the vehicle.

Safely transporting children in the vehicle

  • If necessary, move head restraint 1 upwards.
  • Fold up cover 2 of Top Tether anchorage 3.
  • Install the LATCH-type (ISOFIX) child restraint system with Top Tether. Always comply with the child restraint system manufacturer's installation instructions when doing so.

Safely transporting children in the vehicle

  • Hook Top Tether hook 5 of Top Tether belt 4 without twisting into Top Tether anchorage 3.
  • Tension Top Tether belt 4. Always comply with the child restraint system manufacturer's installation instructions when doing so.
  • Fold down cover 2 of Top Tether anchorage 3.
