Child Safety


LATCH seat with tether straps (2)

(See illustration on previous page.)

Clip the flexible lower straps to the two 
LATCH loops. Adjust the length of each 
strap until the seat is held firmly against 
the vehicle back.

Child restraint top tether anchorages 
and brackets



The top tether must always be used to 
secure the child seat. 

The top of the child seat is connected by 
a short strap to the top tether bracket to 
prevent the seat from rotating about the 
lower anchorages. The top tether 
brackets are positioned on the rear parcel 
shelf, under access covers, at the 
center-line of each rear seating position.

Pass the top tether strap under the 
vehicle rear head restraint to connect to 
the top tether bracket on the parcel shelf. 
Adjust the length of the top tether strap to 
hold the top of the child seat against the 
vehicle seat back.

Make sure the child seat is securely fitted, 
and follow the additional check list on 
page 74.



Child restraint anchorages are 
designed to withstand only those loads 
imposed by correctly fitted child seats. 
Under no circumstances are they to be 
used for adult seat belts, harnesses or 
for attaching other items or equipment 
to the vehicle.


Follow the check list each time your child 
travels in the vehicle:
• Carefully follow the instructions 

provided by the manufacturer of the 
restraint system.

• Make sure your child falls into the 

correct weight range for the seat.

• Always use the appropriate child 

restraints and adjust harnesses for 
every child, every trip.

Child Safety



• Avoid dressing your child in bulky 

clothing and do not place any objects 
between the child and the restraint 

• Regularly check the fit of your child 

seat and replace seats or harnesses 
that show signs of wear.

• No child seat is completely 

child-proof. Encourage your child not 
to play with the buckle or harness.

• Never leave a child unsupervised in 

the vehicle.

• Activate the rear door child safety 

locks, refer to page 42.

• Make sure your child does not exit the 

vehicle from the side where there is 

• Set your child a good example – 

always wear your seat belt.

• Make sure that you have removed all 

slack from the adult seat belt (non- 
LATCH restraint only).

Additional checks for  LATCH child 
• Always attach the top tether when 

installing the LATCH seat.

• Always give the LATCH seat a final 

pull to make sure the lower anchors 
are secure, even if the green buttons 
indicate that the seat connectors are

vehicle is moving.

the ignition key inserted.

The number of seat adjustments varies 
with the vehicle specification, but all

specified, head restraint height (A):

and pull out the head restraint.

Where electrically adjusted head 
restraints, refer to Seat Adjustment on

the head restraint into the seat back to
