FITTING LATCH CHILD RESTRAINTS

WARNING

Do not attempt to fit a LATCH child restraint to the center rear seating position. The anchor bars are not designed to hold a LATCH child restraint in this position. Install only using seat belts (non-LATCH system) and the top tether at this position.

WARNING

If the restraint is not correctly anchored, there is a significant risk of injury to the child in the event of a collision or emergency braking.

WARNING

child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle.

LATCH anchorage child restraints can be fitted only to the outer seat positions on the second row seats.

To fit a LATCH anchorage child seat:

  1. Symbol on each of the four LATCH anchor bar protective sleeves. Remove any covers before installing the child seat.

  2. For child seats fitted with rigid lower LATCH connectors, slide the child seat locking mechanism into the protective sleeves and onto the anchor bars.

    For child seats fitted with non-rigid LATCH connectors, connect the lower tether strap hooks to the anchor bars and tighten the straps.

If an upper tether is fitted to the child seat, see FITTING TETHER ANCHORAGE CHILD RESTRAINTS.

Test the security of the child restraint. To do this, attempt to pull the restraint away from the vehicle's seat and twist the restraint from side to side. Even if the restraint appears secure, you should still check the anchor points visually, to make sure of correct attachment.

NOTES

Always make sure that if an upper tether is provided, it is fitted and tightened correctly.
