How the IIHS Evaluates LATCH for Child Safety

One of the functions of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is to test the effectiveness of the vehicle's child seat attachment hardware that is known as LATCH. The vehicles are acquired and the LATCH system is put through a series of assessments so that consumers have the information that they need for an informed decision.

LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. The IIHS tests this system on a myriad of factors, including clearance angle, the accessibility of the lower anchors, the location, and the clearness of the hardware. When all of the factors are considered, the IIHS assigns a rating of either poor, marginal, acceptable, good, or good +.

The LATCH experts at Precision Acura of Princeton want to answer any questions that you have about this child safety system and how you can use it to keep your family safe on the roads.
