2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Rear Seat Top Tether

October 31, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Our Chevrolet Silverado and all 2014 Silverados with crew or extended cabs have easy-access rear seat top tether anchors for securing child seats. They're basically rubber-covered wire loops. Not every extended cab truck I've driven in the last five years (Raptor, that means you) has offered easy access tethers like this.

    my 13 ext cab has these, but I find them useless for my two carseats. On both seats the tether strap doesn't go short enough to actually utilize them... Are the headrests removeable on the 14? the rear headrests on mine don't seem to be removable at all and with the uprightness of the seat back, the car seats don't fit well at all. I just buckle them in very tight with the seat belt when I need to.

    For the majority of buyers who don't use car seats, these cheap loops sticking out, with no attempt to integrate them into the surrounding, look predictably tacky in a very "GM=barely good enough" way.
