Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) Restraint System
The Facts - 3 out of 4 car seats are not used correctly.
Every year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in crashes, mainly because 3 out of every 4 children in child safety seats are not properly secured, or even worse, not restrained at all.
LATCH - Easier to get it right
Nearly every car seat and most vehicles manufactured since September 1, 2002, are required to have the LATCH system. LATCH makes it easier to get the child seat in right - the first time and every time.
