To assist you in locating the lower anchors for this child restraint system, each seating position with the LATCH system will have a label sewn to the seatback at each anchor position.

In a crash, the child could be seriously injured or killed. Find the anchors for the seating position you want to use, where the bottom of the seatback meets the back of the seat cushion.
