How do I install a LATCH child seat?

A: Your vehicle is equipped for a LATCH child ...

Your vehicle is equipped for a LATCH child seat to help keep your child safe while in the car. Here’s how to install a LATCH child seat into your vehicle. 1. Find the lower anchors, which are located where the seat back meets the seat cushion in the rear seats. There are five lower anchors. 2. Follow the instructions on your LATCH child restraint system to install the seat. 3. Attach the leather strap on the LATCH seat to the tether strap hook. For seats placed in the outer position, this accomplished by moving the head restraint to the upper-most position, running the strap between the head restraint legs, and attaching it to the anchor. For a seat in the center position, this is accomplished by lowering the head restraint to its lowest level, and running the strap over the restraint, to the anchor. Tip After securing the LATCH child seat into place, try and move the seat, to make sure it is fastened properly.
