Honda Odyssey Top Tether and LATCH Information:

Parts kit: 8mm threaded weld nuts on most Hondas require universal part #82410-SE3-C01 (357673).  Apparently, the 1999-2003 Odyssey may also now use a new anchor kit, #82410-S84-C00 (626140).  Kit is called "Anchor Plate and Mounting Hardware" and costs approximately $13 Retail, $7 online. Torque to 16 ft-lb (22 N-m).  Please verify these part numbers with your dealer.  Consult owners manual or dealer for more details, as kit may not include instructions.  (See Photo Album)

Installation on tailgate sill takes about 5 minutes. Allow more time for installation on the rear trim panel or on the floor (may apply to model year 1998 and earlier). You will need a 12mm (1/2" will work) socket or wrench and the Honda Anchor Plate. Please do NOT use a generic anchor kit.

LATCH is only available on the 2001 and newer Odyssey models in the 2nd row captain's chairs. The anchors are located in the bight (crease) between the seat cushion and seat back (See Photo Album). It may be possible to purchase a LATCH-equipped captain's chair for the 2001 model and put it in a 1999 or 2000 model. Please contact your dealer or Honda for details.
