The second part in our Car Seat Safety series will be on the LATCH (lower anchors and tethers for children) system.
The LATCH system is used for car seat installation in place of a seat belt. Many parents find the latch system easier to use when installing a car seat over the traditional method of using a seat belt.
Most car seats and passenger vehicles manufactured on September 1, 2002, or later, are compatible with the LATCH system.
