This is not a coupon deal but as usual, when I see something I feel is important, I post about it. I was shocked when I saw this today….
There is a new rule or guideline coming out in 2014:
The rule requires child-seat makers to tell parents not to use the lower anchors required in cars since 2001 if children and their car seats have a combined weight of 65 pounds, because the strength of the anchors cannot be guaranteed.
Child seats typically weigh 15 to 33 pounds. So the new rule means some children as light as 32 pounds might not be able to use a system designed to make child seats easier to install and, therefore, safer. This child-seat system is known as LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children).

Also, something else that’s important – do NOT use both the latch system and the seatbelt together. It is actually a dangerous thing to do. Thanks to all the readers who left comments informing us all about this.This post may contain affiliate links or sponsored content, read our Disclosure Policy.
