Child safety seat labels revised to include weight of child and seat
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revised the guidelines for child safety seat labels to include the combined weight of the car seat and the child. The maximum total weight has been revised from 70 lb. to 65 lb. Children at the higher weight are safer if they are protected with seat belts and tethers.
The new guidelines, which took effect February 27, 2014 are for the LATCH system– Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. The system includes frame-mounted brackets between the rear seats of every vehicle manufactured since 2002.Download Bulletin PDF
