THE LATCH SYSTEM (LOWER ANCHORS AND TETHERS FOR
Most 2011 NISSAN vehicles are equipped with universal child restraint lower anchors and
top tether anchor for the installation of child restraints equipped with LATCH attachments.
With this system, you do not have to use a vehicle seat belt to secure the child restraint.
Instead, special anchor points are utilized to install the child restraint, provided it is
compatible with the LATCH system. See the vehicle owner’s manual for details and
additional important information.
