Alyssa Collazo: LATCH - Are you confused?♥

LATCH - Are you confused?♥

Are you confused about LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children)? There is so much conversation among caregivers regarding LATCH - weight capacities, when can it be used, how long can it be used. The new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213 labeling requirement for car seats anticipated for February 27, 2014 just adds to the confusion. BRITAX wants to help answer some of these questions, eliminate some of the confusion for caregivers and help in safe transportation of your children! During this webinar we will highlight LATCH requirements and what the new labeling will mean to you as a caregiver using a car seat with LATCH. In conclusion we will have a question and answer session.

The Facts - 3 out of 4 car seats are not used correctly Every year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in crashes, mainly because 3 out of every 4 children in child safety seats are not properly secured, or even worse, not restrained at all. 

Confused About How to Use It Right? In too many instances, parents are confused about how to correctly install their child's seat, don't know that every seat doesn't fit in every car, or they don't realize that their vehicle is equipped with the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system. 

LATCH - Easier to get it right - BRITAX is here to help you. Nearly every car seat and most vehicles manufactured since September 1, 2002, are required to have the LATCH system. LATCH makes it easier to get the child seat in right - the first time and every time.

  5. I never got it... if you buy something surly you would want to find out how to use it correctly...it amazes me how ignorant some people can be, especially that we are talking about child safety here...

  6. We have learned so much about car seats after our son was born. I don't feel we were ignorant, just uninformed. We had the seat set correctly and he was firmly strapped in according to all instructions with our car seat, but it wasn't until talking with other parents that we learned about things like no jackets in car seats.

  7. I wish that they had this type of system when my kids were little. The car seats never seemed to be secure enough for my satisfaction especially with my oldest. He's 21 now. :) Thankfully we learn more about safety every year.

  8. I don't trust myself to install the car seat effectively. Actually, the only person I trust to do it and do it right is my husband because he's such a perfectionist that he'll test and make sure the fit is perfect.

  9. This has always been a concern with my children. I've been through five but still worry constantly about how well they are strapped in. And this post just reminded me to check and readjust his to make sure that it's still adjusted just right for him. TY for the reminder.

  10. So much great information. I feel pretty confidant because I always read and reread manuals and try to find instructional videos for almost everything I use for my daughter.
