Safety concern that the manufacture did not address re; E-Z on molded # 86Y universal harness. My son is 9 and has cerebral palsy he weights 98 lbs and due to his condition he cannot sit on a booster and is large enough to sit in a regular seat. We are using this harness slog with the lap shoulder belt institution along with the locking clip (item G on the owners manual). However the locking clip in the illustration is next to the latch plate. Unfortunately, this configuration does not work in our Honda Odyssey - as well as most other cars the locking clip has to be placed on the opposite side as if you do not the shoulder belt will not be held in a secure position- when I asked them if this position had been crash tested - they told me yes but could provide no documentation. We love the harness but I was to make sure that it is safe for our son. I can send you picture if you like. Thanks for your help.
