Infant car seat installation

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), three out of four car seats are improperly installed. Watch a certified child passenger safety instructor demonstrate the correct way to install an infant car seat using both a seat belt and the LATCH system. You will also learn how to buckle your infant into the seat and how to make sure she’s properly secured using the pinch test.

Thank you Sir

Marcos Ambriz says:

So if you have the latch system do you only use that or do you do the latch and seat belt??

Kyosean says:

Thank you SO much Officer Patrick Roth! Outstanding lesson.

Kearah Scott says:

This was so extremely helpful. I’ve fallen in love completely with baby center. As a new young mom there’s so many things that I just had no clue about like the latch in cars and the base in car seats and the difference between converting car seats etc. so this is great!

So if you have the anchors do you not need to also strap the seatbelt through, I feel like I might just for extra safety.
