About the LATCH system

  • The Lower Anchors and Tethers for ChildrenLATCHsystem is designed to make installation of child safety seats easier by requiring child safety seats to be installedwithoutusing the vehicle's seat belt system.
  • For tips about installing the LATCH system in your vehicle, go to
  • Indications are that at least 80 percent of the child safety seats in use in this country are incorrectly installed and/or misused. Based upon the results of child safety seat checks conducted across NY State in the last year, the "misuse rate" is actually much higher.

Child Safety seat recalls:

  • Child safety seats may be recalled because of a defect which could injure your child if a crash occurs. To find out if your Chld Safety Seat (CSS) has been recalled, locate the model and date of manufacture usually listed on the label on the side or rear of the CSS. Then contact the Auto Safety Hotline in Washington, D.C. at 1-800-327-4236 or you may contact the CSS manufacturer directly by calling the number listed on the CSS label. Alternatively, you may visit the website of the manufacturer and look for any recall lists they may have established independently.
