The purpose of the LATCH, or lower anchors and tethers for children, is to make it easier for you to attach the child safety seat. The anchors are used in order to secure the child safety seat. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety came up with a rating system in order to make it easier for people to assess how hard it will be to attach the car seat. Good, acceptable, marginal and poor are the ratings that are given.

There are several things that are assessed before the rating is assigned. The professionals test the accessibility, physical force that is required to put the car seat and the installation angle. They will also use the hardware used and anchor locations in order to determine the appropriate rating. Keep in mind that LATCH evaluations do not take safety into consideration.
