What happens if I own a new LATCH-equipped vehicle, do I have to buy a new car seat with LATCH?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com No, you can still use the vehicle seat belt system to secure your safety seat to the vehicle, and it is just as safe. However, many child safety seat manufacturers offer LATCH retro-fit kits that can make your current seat LATCH-ready. Contact your child safety seat manufacturer to find out if your seat can be equipped with LATCH connectors.
