Re: Interesting information regarding LATCH

Is this info just not well known?
I agree. I switched to a seat belt install when my kids were about age 3/4. I read something in the manual about 40ish pounds and it also referred to the car manual. So looking at both, I made the decision to seat belt install at that point. It took some education of how to properly install with a seat belt, had to figure out what how to use a locking clip, but all the info was there in the manual. I guess the general population just doesn't read them?
