LATCH, or Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, is a system used to attach child safety seats in vehicles. This system is used in addition to securing a child seat using a vehicle's regular safety belts.

In order to encourage vehicle owners to use the LATCH system, a four-part evaluation system was put into place to rate the anchors and their accessibility. The restraints are generally rated from "Good" to "Poor." Naturally, you'll need a vehicle that ranks closer to the "Good" category in all four parts of the evaluation if you have children.

Since it's difficult to test every vehicle that comes out in a year, manufacturers and dealerships can opt for their own rating verification systems. If you want to learn more about your own vehicle's LATCH system or you want to make sure that you can safely secure a child safety seat, contact Mangino Buick GMC in Ballston Spa, NY today.
