What does the elastic strap and hook behind the back seat centre armrest do?

Noticed today an elastic strap and hook behind the foldup armrest in the back seat.
The hook has what looks like an open book with an "i" on the page, molded into it.
What is it for??
Tight fit whatever it is.....

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I've noticed before, in for an answer.

Re: What does the elastic strap and hook behind the back seat centre armrest do?

It is the armrest tether strap to secure the armrest & hold it in an upward position when using a rearward facing infant car seat.

You unhook it from its interior holder and pull it up as you close the armrest and then re-hook it to the strap on the underside/front of the armrest so it will hold armrest in a closed position.

Much appreciated - Kids are long gone so I never would have worked it out.
