How do I use the LATCH system?

A: The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children ...

The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system helps secure a child restraint in the event of an accident, and also while driving. The LATCH system also makes installing a child restraint easier. Your vehicle is equipped with a top tether anchor on all three seats, and a pair of lower tether anchors on the outbound rear seats. The tether anchors are metal bars attached to the vehicle, that attach to the child restraint system to hold it in place. The top tether anchors are located behind the rear seats, on the filler panel. The lower tether anchors are located where the seat cushion meets the seat back. Each tether anchor is labeled with a picture, to help you find it. Use the tether anchors as advised by your child restraint owner’s manual.
