Using the L.A.T.C.H. child restraint system

L.A.T.C.H. child restraint systems are the best option for mounting a child seat in your Porsche. Such L.A.T.C.H. restraint systems can be installed only using the L.A.T.C.H. system in the rear seats.

The outer rear seats are equipped with the LATCH system (lower anchorage and anchor points for tether straps on the back of the backrests).

  • Use only child restraint systems with the L.A.T.C.H. system (Lower Anchorage and Tether for Children) recommended by Porsche.
    These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child weight groups.
    Other systems have not been tested and could entail an increased risk of injury.
  • You can obtain child seats that are L.A.T.C.H.- compatible at your authorized Porsche dealer.
  1. Refer to the separate installation instructions for your child restraint system.

Markings on the right and left for the L.A.T.C.H. child seat anchorage can be found on the backrests of the outer rear seats.

The retaining lugs A for the L.A.T.C.H. child seat anchorage can be found under the backrest lower section.

Misuse of Child seat Restraint Anchorages
Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adults seat belts or harnesses.

  • Do not misuse the child restraint anchorages. Only attach one child seat tether per anchorage.
  • They are not designed to withstand loads imposed by adults.
  1. Please see chapter "Automatic locking retractor" on page 92.

  1. Pull protection caps off the L.A.T.C.H. anchorage points if necessary and store them in a safe place.
  2. Secure the child restraint system to retaining lugs A as described in the instruction manual for the child restraint system.
  3. Pull the child restraint system to check that both anchorage points are properly engaged.
