IIHS LATCH Force Evaluation Tool Set
Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) requirements are intended to make it easier for parents to install child restraints (car seats) by standardizing attachments between vehicles and restraints. The purpose of our IIHS LATCH Force Evaluation Tool Set is to help measure how likely it will be for the parents to obtain a good, tight installation of their car seat.
Improving LATCH will not only make it easier for parents but will also reduce the likelihood of misuse.
By using this tool in accordance with the IIHS Vehicle LATCH Hardware Evaluation Protocol the OEM can determine how easy their LATCH system is compared to prior designs or to other manufacturers. All of the components of our IIHS LATCH Force Evaluation Tool Set are dimensionally certified to assure conformance to that standard.
Our IIHS Latch Force Evaluation Tool Set includes the Clearance Angle Gauge and is designed in accordance IIHS test specifications.
