I like your solution and would use it anytime I needed it.

I have my (rear facing) child seat in the middle so that people can sit on each side of the baby. I'm using the center lap seatbelt to secure one side of the child seat. For the other side, I found two holes in the frame under the rear seats in the middle. The tether that came with my Evenflo Tribute LX wasn't quite long enough so I bought two 5/16" stainless steel quick links to attach both sides of the tether to the holes. Each quick link can withstand up to 1700 lbs.

Thoughts?

Here are some pics.
Still can't access the pictures - it's requesting a McAffee (security) username and password (?)
