LATCH, or Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children, is a system that makes it easier for you to install a car seat here in Bremerton, WA. Naturally, parents with small children will want to know more about the LATCH system in any car that they may buy. That is where LATCH evaluations come into play.

Safety boards evaluate a LATCH system on several things, including how accessible the anchors and tethers are and how much force it needs to install the seat. The quality and the location of the anchors are also evaluated and considered when giving the overall rating.

You will typically find that LATCH systems are rated on a four-part scale, with the results ranging from "Poor" all the way to "Good." A "Poor" rating does not necessarily mean that the LATCH is not safe, just that it is harder to install than its competitors with a higher rating. Truck Town can tell you more about the ratings of individual vehicles.
