What's that strap for?

You know the one behind the center arm rest in the back seat. What is it for?

Is that part of the Child Restraint attachment system? Dunno. . .?

Re: What's that strap for?

Are you talking about the strap that you use to pull out the arm rest?

Nope. When you pull down the armrest there is an elastic strap in the recess. I'd take a picture but SHMBO has the Jeep today.

Re: What's that strap for?

I got curious after reading your question. Found this in the owner's DVD:

For rearward facing infant seats secured in the center seat position with the vehicle seat belts, the rear center seat position has an armrest tether that secures the arm rest in the upward position. To access the center seat arm rest tether first lower the arm rest. The tether is located behind the armrest and hooked onto the plastic seat backing.

Pull down on the tether to unhook it from the plastic seat backing, then raise the armrest and attach the tether hook to the strap located on the front of the arm rest.

There are pictures of this also.

Re: What's that strap for?

To elaborate, here's the manual extract that explains it.

Thank you. I looked and just didn't see it in manual and skipped over the child seat sections on the DVD.
