The Seatbelt System
Older cars and car seats rely on a safety belt for securing the car seat; however, the complicated ways in which you must manipulate the seatbelt has caused many parents and caregivers to improvise. While proper installation of the car seat can protect your child from injury, taking short cuts can compromise your child’s safety.
The LATCH System
If you are tired of the seatbelt installation, you may be glad to discover that car seat companies have developed a new securing system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. With this method of installation, cars are equipped with both an upper tether that attaches to the top of the safety seat, and lower anchors, which also directly attach to the car seat. This three point securing system makes installation easy and guarantees the highest level of safety for your child.
