LATCH Vehicle Anchorage Usability Survey

Sponsor: Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
Investigators: Kathleen DeSantis Klinich, Miriam A. Manary, Jamie Moore, Carol Flannagan, Laura Malik
May 26, 2010 to March 15, 2014

This project evaluated vehicles to identify features that make LATCH hardware easier to use.  A follow-on component of the study specifically looked at tether use.  This study's results allowed the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to implement a LATCH usability rating system.  Publications resulting from this project include the following:
