Using LATCH for Car Seat Installation - Safe Ride 4 Kids

Using LATCH for Car Seat Installation

most common car seat mistakesAll child restraints sold today come with LATCH (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) system.

That consists of a strap and clip that attaches to the vehicle’s lower anchor. The lower anchors are in the bight of the seat (the back of the vehicle seat).

Consult your vehicle’s owners manual to learn about which positions in your car have LATCH and where they are located.

You are required to use the top tether on the car seat when you are using the lower anchors of the LATCH system to install a forward-facing car seat. When using the seat belt to install a forward-facing car seat, the top tether is highly recommended but not required.

We encourage you to read your owners manual for your car seat to learn the specifics about the seat that you are using.
