Why You Want the Best Possible Latch

With the LATCH, you want to make sure that you are getting something that meets the right criteria. You have to look at five criteria that is in your vehicle in order to make sure that you have something that is safe for taking your children in if applicable.

The criteria for a safe LATCH are lower anchor accessibility, force, clearance angle, location and hardware simplicity. All five of these criteria must be met when it comes to certain aspects of the test in order for the vehicle to get a good rating when it comes to the LATCH.

There are four types of ratings that are going to be issued to the vehicles in the test. The best rating that you can get is a good rating. The second best is acceptable. After that rating is marginal. Then the lowest rating is the poor rating when it comes to safety.
