Information about LATCH Evaluations That Every Parent Should Know

If you’ve ever installed a child safety seat in a vehicle, you know that doing so can be a complicated and confusing event. Below are a few facts about safety seat evaluation ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that you should keep in mind if you have young children and you’re planning to purchase a new vehicle.

LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, and a vehicle’s LATCH rating is based upon several different factors that include the location and accessibility of the various components that are used to anchor a child safety seat into the vehicle. The amount of force that it takes to engage the components and the general ease-of-use of the system are also considerations when formulating a vehicle’s LATCH rating.
