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

WARNING: Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those 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.

This symbol is shown on a label sewn into the seats, to indicate the position of the LATCH lower anchorages.

5 seat vehicles:

To install a LATCH anchorage child seat:

  1. Raise or remove the head restraint.

  2. Lift the velcro flap to expose the LATCH anchor bars.

  3. Slide the child seat into position and attach the locking mechanism to the LATCH anchor bars.

7 seat vehicles:

To install a LATCH anchorage child seat:

  1. Raise or remove the head restraint.

  2. Locate the LATCH anchor bars.

  3. Slide the child seat into position and attach the locking mechanism to the LATCH anchor bars.

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 they are correctly attached.

NOTES

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