What if my car doesn’t come with anchors?

Posted in: The LATCH System

You can retrofit certain vehicles with lower anchors and tether anchors.

Lower anchors

Retrofitting is available for a few Audi and Volkswagen vehicles ONLY.


If you have a 2001 & newer vehicle that has tether anchors in some positions, but not all the positions, you can NOT retrofit tether anchors for the neglected positions.

Tether anchors can be added to many vehicles manufactured between 1989-1999. Many of these vehicles have the holes pre-drilled in the vehicle, often with the nut in place, so that retrofitting the tether anchor is as simple as ordering the part and screwing in a bolt.

Ford, Chrysler, and GM will retrofit for FREE at least one tether anchor in their vehicles which did not come with tether anchors factory-installed (assuming that the vehicle is able to be retrofitted).
Vehicle manufacturers with a single part number for all tether anchor kits for all of their vehicles (list price included when available–installation may be extra and pricing may have changed).
