FORWARD-FACING SAFETY SEAT:

Forward-facing child safety seats are
designed for children 10 to 18 kilograms
(22 to 40 pounds). All newer vehicles and
child safety seats come equipped with the
universal anchor system or UAS/LATCH.
In older vehicles, a forward-facing seat
must be properly secured by using the
vehicle seat belt. The child safety seat’s
tether strap and vehicle’s tether anchor
must be used. (You may need to have
a tether anchor installed by your vehicle
dealer.) Check the instruction manuals for
the vehicle and child safety seat for more
information.
