:::I also have a ford explorer and an EVENFLOW car seat - but the anchor straps are not long enough to reach the floor anchors. EVENFLOW told me they do not have longer straps and do not recommend using someone elses straps...........where can I get a longer strap that would work?

: : I have a ford explorer, and it anchors to the floor (im not sure if your vechile is similar to an suv or not, if not, then it should anchor to the back of the back seat just under the back window) As I said mine anchors to the floor, its just a hook that clips on to a metal loop on the the floor. So when you want to move the carseat, if you look at the carseat, you should have gotten a teather strap there is a hook on it thats the part that clips to your car, so when you take your carseat out, you will have this long strap still attached to your carseat. I hope I didnt make that more confusing for you.

: I have an Outback wagon. I'm going to go check out the back of the seat and see what I find. The tether strap has been attached since I got the seat, I just left it. Up until now we didn't really know what to do with it. Thanks for your help.
