State laws require children be secured in a safety seat or a booster seat while they are in a car. Many parents find out too late that the car seat they trusted their child’s safety with was less than safe. Approximately ten million car seat recalls have been issued by their manufacturers since 1998. The federal government issued guidelines as a response requiring car seat manufacturers to include LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) features. LATCH is designed to eliminate the need to use your vehicle’s seat belts to attach the car seat.
