Correct. And if you store your seat that way for too long, the strap will break. :-(

Probably due to age.

I've been told that if you wipe old rubber products with a rag damp with brake fluid, they will regain their elasticity. I still have not tried it yet...

wow...i would have never thought of that...but then again the only time i ever fold up the rear is to vacuum out the stale french fries and such that gets deposted by my boys.(4 and 6)...you would think i could have figured that out being that the bolt knob on the rear seat almost matches the knob on the strap.!! duh!!

you can try this but be very careful...it does work but a little goes a very very long way.....funny story here....my former boss' wife used to get her car detailed by one of our custmers...she had rubber floor mats in her crown vic..well one day apparently the detail guy ran out of armor all or what ever he normally used...so he decided to usesome brake fluid to clean up the mats.. ...well a day or so later my boss' wife was riding shotgun and she put her pocket book(leather) on the floor next to her feet.... ...they parked and she got out of the car and grabbed her pocket book...about halfway across the parking lot the whole bottom of her purse along with all of its contents fell out onto the parking lot.... ..apparently the brake fluid had softened the purse so fast and so well that it desentigrated ...SHE WAS !!!!!!....
