Lower Anchors And Tethers for CHildren

"[US] Federal rules mandated that as of Sept. 1, 1999, top tether anchors must be in place in new cars and top tether straps must be on all front-facing child seats. Lower anchors were phased in by law starting in 2000, and they are now required in almost all cars and light trucks less than 8,500 pounds. The corresponding hooks were required in all child-safety seats manufactured on or after September 1, 2002."
