Isofix is a system for attaching a child car seat securely to a car's chassis. The name "Isofix" is derived from the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and FIX (Fixation) standards. The Isofix system is also known as LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) in some countries, including the United States.
Isofix consists of two anchor points located in the crease of the car's back seat and a top tether point, which is usually located on the rear shelf or back of the seat. The car seat has corresponding connectors that click onto the anchor points, and a top tether that connects to the top tether point. This creates a secure and stable connection between the car seat and the car's chassis, providing additional protection for the child in the event of an accident.
Isofix is considered to be a safer and more convenient alternative to using a seat belt to secure a child car seat. It is designed to reduce the risk of incorrect installation and to minimize the movement of the child car seat in the event of a collision. However, it is important to check that your car and child car seat are compatible with the Isofix system before purchasing and using it.
