LATCH is a car seat installing system that makes a child safety seat installation easier without the use of seat belts. This method includes a top tether and top anchors and bottom anchors that attach to the vehicle’s seat. The weight maximum for this system is 65lbs, which includes the weight of the child and child’s car seat. A child’s car seat typically weighs 25lbs, so the child will need to weigh 40lbs or less.
If your child and car seat does exceed 65lbs, the LATCH system will need to be removed and the child’s car seat will need to be reattached to the vehicle’s seat belts.
