MYTH
 When using a booster seat with LATCH make sure to follow vehicle manufacturer’s weight limit for the lower anchors.
Passenger Safety
5
 When using a booster the seat belt is holding the child’s weight. The lower anchors if available would only be holding the weight of the actual booster seat.

MYTH
 An infant seat carrying handle must always be in the down position while using it in a vehicle
7
Passenger Safety
 Several rear‐facing only CRs allow the handle to be in a variety of positions, including upright, even when in use in the vehicle.
 Always carefully read the CR instructions to confirm the allowable handle positions.
 One example is all the Graco seats – all locked positions (retroactive change made 9/2012) .
 Some seats MUST only use handle in the upright position – Combi Shuttle, Cybex Aton2, Aton Q

MYTH
 Getting 3 seats across the back seat of most vehicles can be difficult ‐ if not impossible!
Passenger Safety
14
 In many cars the outboard lower anchors are set quite far from the door.  Using the seat belt instead of LATCH can give extra room to install three seats across.
 This is especially true where there is offset lower anchors.

MYTH
 If an approved child restraint systems (CRS), does not fit in a particular seat on an aircraft, the CRS cannot be used during that flight.
Passenger Safety

3/4/2015
 Each airline will have polices that dictate the specific safe seat locations for specific aircraft.
 “No operator may prohibit a child from using an approved CRS when a seat is purchased for the child, the child is accompanied by a parent/guardian and the child is within the weight limits for the CRS. If an approved CRS, for which a ticket has been purchased, does not fit in a particular seat on the aircraft, it is the responsibility of the aircraft operator to accommodate the CRS in another seat.” Source: Excerpt from Information for Operators(11007) 3/10/2011 Flight Standards Service‐FAA).

MYTH
 Child safety locks in vehicles are relatively new inventions that were first offered in the late 1990’s. Passenger Safety
20
 Child safety locks in vehicles have been around since the early 1980’s.
 Manually activated childproof locks can only be opened from the outside.
 Power locks that are fully controlled by the driver are preferred.
 Some power lock systems automatically unlock the doors when an airbag deploys.

MYTH
 Integrated restraints in vehicles must be replaced after 6 years the same way many conventional restraints do. Passenger Safety
22
 Chrysler’s Integrated Child Restraints do not have an expiration date. They are designed and tested to last for the life of the vehicle. Only replace if they have been involved in a crash or show signs of excessive wear.
 In other vehicles, please contact the individual vehicle manufacturer.

3/4/2015
 Children have been riding rear‐facing from 4‐6 years old for decades in Sweden with extremely low death and injury rates for children in MV crashes. Most Swedish children move directly from rear‐facing to a booster seat. Seats go to 55 lbs. rear‐facing.
 Sweden has been the forerunner in most issues involving highway safety.  Volvo, was the first to introduce such innovations as laminated glass, 3‐point safety belts in 1959, the first rear‐facing car seat in 1964, the first booster seat in 1978, side air bags, and SIPS, etc.
Passenger Safety
25
MYTH
 Rear‐facing tethering is allowed by 3 manufacturers • Britax
• Combi
• Diono
Passenger Safety
26
 In addition to the Britax rear‐facing convertibles, the Combi Coccoro convertible and the Diono 3‐in‐
1 seats in rear‐facing mode, car seat manufacturer Peg Perego provides for rear‐facing tethering on their Primo Viaggio 5‐65 and 5‐70 convertibles.
 All four manufacturers recommend using the rear‐
facing tether whenever possible.

MYTH
 To comply with the new ruling on LATCH, it is important that parents know the weight of their child and the weight of their car seat.
 Weight of child + Weight of seat = <65 pounds
 Parents will need to weigh their car seat
Passenger Safety
28
 Car seat manufacturers are required to put the child’s weight limit for using lower anchors on the side of the seat. When in doubt for higher weight harnessed seats, use the seat belt rather than the lower anchors.
Passenger Safety
29
MYTH
 Boosters should always be used in school buses.
Passenger Safety
30
10
3/4/2015
 Most school buses are equipped with lap/shoulder belts have adjustable shoulder belts.
 Do not use a booster seat in a school bus with adjustable shoulder belts.
 Boosters move the child forward, reducing excursion room in seat compartment.
Passenger Safety
31
MYTH
 Tether straps are ALWAYS routed under the head restraint.
Passenger Safety
32
 Consult vehicle manual. If no direction is provided, it is usually routed under the head restraint.  When using a Britax versa‐tether without specific guidelines from the vehicle manufacturer, route the tether so that it travels to the designated tether anchor location in the most natural route.
 If the V of the two pieces of webbing routes best and most natural connecting to the designated anchor point “around” the head restraint – then go around.
Passenger Safety
33

3/4/2015
MYTH
 Like other products, car seats have an expiration date . They expire in 6 years.
Passenger Safety
34
 While many manufacturers have a 6 year expiration date, there is variation among different manufacturers and different seats.
 Each child restraint manufacturer determines the appropriate expiration date by in‐house testing requirements of components to ensure their safe use.
 Some 3‐in‐1 seats have longer expiration dates.
 There is now a new seat from Graco with a 10 year expiration date and Diono has seats that expire in 12 years!
Passenger Safety
35
MYTH
 All forward‐facing convertible car seats have a minimum starting weight of 20 pounds.
Passenger Safety
36
12
3/4/2015
 Some convertibles have a starting weight of 22 pounds. Examples include ALL of the Dorel/Cosco/Safety 1st/Eddie Bauer/Maxi‐Cosi seats, the new Chicco NextFit, and newer Evenflo convertibles.
 Some have a 25 pound starting weight.
 Dorel’s new labeling states that a child must be 2 years old before going forward‐facing!
Passenger Safety
37
MYTH
 There should never be more than one seat attached to a tether at a time.
Passenger Safety
38
 Many pickup trucks with tether routing loops will allow this.
 Refer to vehicle manufacturer’s instructions.
Passenger Safety
39
13
3/4/2015
MYTH
 It is a technician’s job to let parents know that side‐
impact air bags are dangerous to children.
Passenger Safety
40
 Make sure caregivers know where side airbags are located.
 Even though they have been tested, tell kids not to lean against side airbags.
 The center seat is usually the safest because of side impacts, not side airbags.
 Do not tell caregivers that side airbags are dangerous.
Passenger Safety
41
MYTH
 NHTSA’s proposed new rules on side‐
impact testing will include testing all types of car seats.
Passenger Safety
42
14
3/4/2015
 Proposed side‐impact standards will not include testing for children over 40 pounds in a harnessed seat or installation with a seat belt. Passenger Safety
43
MYTH
 Whenever you have a vehicle with low seat backs, a high back booster can be used.
Passenger Safety
44
 Always read the instruction manual. One example is the Safety 1st Apex 65 (last made in ‘10). Mid‐point of child’s head must not be over the vehicle seat back.
 Some other examples: Dorel Boost Air Protect and Pronto
Passenger Safety
45
15
3/4/2015
MYTH
 In an SUV/van lower anchors are always attached with the open part of the hook facing upwards.
Passenger Safety
46
 Some Ford vehicles require the top tether hook to be rotated a half twist so that the opening of the hook faces downwards.
 Examples: Ford ‐ Escape (01‐12), Freestyle (05‐
07), Taurus Wagon (09‐08), Econoline (various), Windstar 95‐99)
 Lincoln Navigator (03‐13)
 Always check the LATCH Manual to be sure.
Passenger Safety
47
MYTH
 A child outgrows a forward‐
facing harnessed seat when they have less than 1” from the top of their head to the top of the shell.
Passenger Safety
48
16
3/4/2015
 That is true for rear‐facing seats.  For most forward‐facing seats with harnesses, the child outgrows the seat either when they exceed the weight and height limit or the mid‐
point of their head (usually the top of the ears) is over the top of the shell, or the child’s shoulders are above the top slots on the seat.
Passenger Safety
49
MYTH
 Children seated lower on the vehicle seat are safer than on boosters. Lower is better, right?
Passenger Safety
50
 Although the premise is a good one, it is not really relevant to children who are too small to fit adult seat belts. In order to be relevant all things would have to be equal for the child using the adult seat belt. The poor fit of the adult belt on a child, even if they were lower in the seat, would counter any benefits. The vehicle seat length would also compromise good belt fit.
Passenger Safety
51
17
3/4/2015
MYTH
 It is okay for the back of a car seat to touch the back of the front seat?
Passenger Safety
52
 Pressure on the seatback may cause a false reading by the passenger side sensor for the advanced air bag system, possibly causing the air bag to deploy in a crash when not needed or to be suppressed when it is needed.
 Ex: 2013 Toyota Rav4 owner’s manual states, do not allow a child restraint installed on the rear seat to contact the front seatback
 Ex: Evenflo rear‐facing only seats when installed in the outboard position must have 1 ½ “ between any part of the child restraint and the vehicle seat that is closest to the child’s head.  ALWAYS CHECK THE INSTRUCTIONS
Passenger Safety
53
MYTH
 It is always permissible to buckle the seat belt behind a CRS to prevent the risk of strangulation. Passenger Safety
54
18
3/4/2015
 Not all vehicle manufacturers permit seat belts to be buckled Routing of unused center rear and/or retractors to be locked/ seat belt when installing a car seat with a seat belt in an switched behind a LATCH installed outboard seating position.
car seat. Always read the vehicle and car manuals.
 Examples: 2011 Volkswagen Golf (see diagram)
 Ford inflatable seat belts are activated when buckled.
Passenger Safety
55
MYTH
 When a child will not sit still in a booster seat, it is permissible to switch the retractor into the locking mode.
Passenger Safety
56
 Check the vehicle owners’ manual. Some vehicles do not allow the shoulder belt to be switched into locking mode. One example is the 2011 Nissan Altima.
Passenger Safety
57
19
3/4/2015
MYTH
 Starting in 2011 some vehicle are equipped with ‘dynamic’ locking latchplates in the front driver and passenger seats. These can be used to install a child safety seat.
Passenger Safety
58
 This type of latchplate clamps the lap belt down helping to reduce the amount of webbing that can slide through the latchplate from the shoulder belt to the lap belt. This helps keep a properly belted occupant further away from the instrument panel.
 They will lock in a crash but are NOT meant to hold a CRS pre‐crash. If you must install a CRS in the front seat with this type of latchplate, the retractor should be switched into the locking mode.  Always read the vehicle and CRS instructions!
 Best to test retractor first for lockability!
Passenger Safety
59
MYTH
 It is okay for some car seats to be in the reclined position when installed forward‐
facing?
Passenger Safety
60
20
3/4/2015
 Check the instructions for a convertible, forward‐
facing, or booster car seat. Some only allow recline to match the natural angle of different vehicle seats, some models do allow semi‐reclined position(s) to be used in the forward‐facing modes.  Example: Dorel ‐ When forward‐facing, recline positions are only to be used to keep the car seat flush against the back of vehicle seat. Adjustable vehicle seats must be in the upright position during travel, according to your vehicle owner’s manual.
Passenger Safety
61
MYTH
 The rear center position provides the most safety. Always put the youngest most vulnerable child in the center.
Passenger Safety
62
 The rear center is the safest position in the vehicle when a good installation can be achieved.
 Also consider that the rear‐facing child is the most protected passenger – even in a side impact.
 Putting the less protected, forward‐facing child in the center may be a better option.
 Touch choices that a parent needs to make – after a technician provides them with the facts!
Passenger Safety
63
21
3/4/2015
MYTH
 As technicians, we know that up to 9 out of 10 car seats are not installed correctly, but the majority of parents do buckle up their children on every trip. Passenger Safety
64
 A recent Safe Kids survey of 1,000 parents shows one in four parents say they have driven with their children unrestrained.
 The survey asked parents if it was acceptable for a child to ride unrestrained in a vehicle in certain circumstances, including driving a short distance, if the car or booster seat was missing, during overnight travel, as a reward for the child, or if they chose to hold the child in their lap.
 21% percent of parents said it was acceptable to drive with their child unrestrained if they are not driving far.

3/4/2015
Why Dynamic Locking Latchplates?
• Adult center of gravity is in the lower torso
• When an occupant loads the belt, more force goes to the lap portion
• Traditional latchplates allow webbing to slide from shoulder portion to lap portion
• Allows lower torso and legs to move forward more
• DLLPs reduce amount of webbing that can transfer
• Less movement = better energy management
• Reduces force on chest and protects legs/hips
What do they do?

CRASHES ARE VIOLENT
ALL ANCHORS HAVE LIMITS
Not all 30 or 35 mph crashes are the same… the specific vehicle, seating position and CR can make a significant difference in forces experienced. A MINIMUM standard has to consider that.
71
3/4/2015
Some Limit Principles
• “Acceleration” describes both acceleration and deceleration in engineering terms
• Approximately .2 seconds after the crash begins, “peak” acceleration occurs ‐ force can be twice as high as average VEHICLE acceleration (or higher)
• Vehicles that have stiffer front ends have higher peak accelerations
• OCCUPANT acceleration can be twice as high as peak VEHICLE acceleration at that point
• NCAP crashes at 35 m.p.h. can yield forces that are double those of the FMVSS 213 30 m.p.h. pulse
Some Limit Principles
• Technology that combines and balances the following energy management experiences results in optimal occupant protection
– Closely coupling the occupant to the vehicle allows the occupant extends the period of acceleration (ride down)
– Deformation of various vehicle and restraint system parts reduces the length of time that the strongest forces are experienced
• The NHTSA LA limit rationale considers CR weight, child weight, peak acceleration in various vehicles, and higher crash severities than the current FMVSS 213 pulse
Why Limit LAs?
35 mph frontal test ‐ 2010 Kia Forte
HIII–10C in Safety 1st Apex 65
CR = 13 lbs. ‐ Child+CR = 90 lbs.
Peak vehicle acceleration = 46 G
Maximum anchorage load = 20,395 N
Inboard anchor pulled through the sheet metal at the attachment point
• Failure demonstrates a finite strength limit

No TA Limit Labels Required
“(Tethers) provide more rigid attachment at the top part of the child restraint, so that the CRS can ‘ride down’ the crash while the vehicle is crushing. This considerably reduces excursion of the child’s head relative to the vehicle interior, so the head is far less likely to hit other parts of the vehicle interior—the most likely cause of serious injury to a properly restrained child.”
FIELD QUESTION

We have a brand new Apt, made 3/14/2014
I can’t find a lower anchor limit label
I looked in the warnings and everywhere else
I had 5 instructors look for it too
Is that a compliance issue or is there something I am missing?
From NHTSA
This requirement applies only to CRSs with internal harnesses for which the combined weight of the CRS and the maximum recommended child weight for use with internal harness exceeds 65 lb.

2007‐13 Certification Curriculum
2014 Certification Curriculum
Tips for Discussing LATCH
• Lower anchors and tethers have weight limits.
- If not stated in the owner’s manual, do not use
lower anchors or tethers if the child + car seat
weight more than 65 pounds.
- Vehicle LATCH weight limits can be found at
www.cpsboard.org
• If there are no lower anchors in the center
position, use the seat belt and tether to install
the car seat.
6-5b
76
3/4/2015
Real‐World Example to Consider
• Car seat made before 2/27/14
• Has child weight limits in the instructions
• If the child weighs 48 lbs or less, the CR is installed with the LATCH system or the vehicle seat belt
• If the child weighs more than 48 lbs, the CR is installed with the vehicle seat belt (not LATCH)
• Tether strap is attached and tightened
• Vehicle manufacturer limits both lower anchor AND tether anchor use to 65 pound COMBINED (child + CR) weight
Tool: The LATCH Manual
77
3/4/2015
FMVSS 213 Revision: 2015
• Limit label associated with LATCH installation diagram
• Limit may be rounded up to next 5 pound increment for FF harness seats (could be closer to 70 pounds combined weight)
• Manufacturers MAY have begun to label that way in 2014 but MUST label that way in 2015 or later
Example 3: Car Seat Labels
78
3/4/2015
Take Home Message
• Use a tether for forward facing seats whenever it is acceptable
• This includes seat belt and tether OR lower anchors and tether (LATCH)
• If the seat was made on or after 2‐28‐2014, find the limits on the label and follow them
• For seats made before 2‐28‐2014, find the vehicle and CR limits – use the lower of the 2
• If there are no published limits, assume 65 pounds combined CR and child weight
More Anticipated Regulatory Changes
Side Impact
Testing
79
3/4/2015
Vehicle to Vehicle Side Impacts
1) The striking vehicle begins crushing the door structure of the struck vehicle and intrudes into the vehicle compartment.
2) As the striking vehicle begins to push the struck vehicle away, an occupant experiences that vehicle motion and the door intrudes towards him or her.
3) The occupant is struck by the intruding door and is then accelerated away from the door.

Focus Increased

Different Testing Approaches
81
3/4/2015
FMVSS 213 Side Impact ATD: NPRM
• Original regulatory process began in 2002 with lots of missing information
• Current dummies are built for frontal testing – not for lateral impacts
• NHTSA proposed using this Q3s dummy (3‐year‐old) to test CRs with new side impact performance requirements
FMVSS 213 Side Impact Test: NPRM
• Side impacts almost equal to frontal crashes as a source of fatalities and serious injuries to children ages 0 to 12
• Congress mandated the Secretary of Transportation to improve the side impact protection of children in CRs • Will amend FMVSS 213 to include side impact performance requirements
82
3/4/2015
Proposed Standard
Restraints for child weights up to 40 pounds
12‐month old and new 3‐year‐old (Q3s) ATDs
Boosters may or may not be included
Minimum level of protection in side impacts
Prevent harmful head contact with an intruding vehicle door or CR structure
• Reduce crash forces on head and chest
•
•
•
•
•
83
3/4/2015
What Seat Should I Get NOW?
• It is a PROPOSED standard and it is likely to change (perhaps dramatically) before it is finalized and in effect
• Most major manufacturers are using it for research and development, but continue to test with other methods
• Some manufacturers share limited information about their side impact testing
• At this point, advocates don’t have access to enough information to form accurate answers

Lifespan Changing
CR Expiration Dates
• Some advocate programs have adopted policies that reflect 5‐6 years, some more aggressively than others
• Some manufacturers have strategically used the accepted lifespan
• The “rule”, however, is not set in stone
Check Labels & Markings
• MOST manufacturers now vary from this 6‐
year stance… 7‐, 8‐ and 10‐years are common
– 3‐in‐1 seats that go to 57” or taller
– Combination seats
– Low‐volume seats
– Some manufacturers across the board or mostly across the board
– Could be ANY seat… and it is beginning to be
– SOME REMAIN AT 6 YEARS… check instructions
