Honda HR-V: Installing a LATCH-Compatible Child Seat

Honda HR-V (2015-2021) Owner's Manual / Safe Driving / Child Safety / Installing a LATCH-Compatible Child Seat

A LATCH-compatible child seat can be installed in either of the two outer rear seats.

A child seat is attached to the lower anchors with either the rigid or flexible type of connectors.

1. Locate the lower anchors under the marks.

2. Raise the head restraint to its highest position.

Child Safety


3. Place the child seat on the vehicle seat then attach the child seat to the lower anchors according to the instructions that came with the child seat.

  • When installing the child seat, make sure that the lower anchors are not obstructed by the seat belt or any other object.

4. Remove the tonneau cover.

5. Route the tether strap between the head restraint legs, and secure the tether strap hook onto the anchor.

Make sure the strap is not twisted.

6. Tighten the tether strap as instructed by the child seat manufacturer.

7. Make sure the child seat is firmly secured by rocking it forward and back and side to side; little movement should be felt.

8. Make sure any unused seat belt that a child can reach is buckled, the lockable retractor is activated, and the belt is fully retracted and locked.

9. Reinstall the tonneau cover*.

For your child's safety, when using a child seat installed using the LATCH system, make sure that the seat is properly secured to the vehicle. A child seat that is not properly secured will not adequately protect a child in a crash and may cause injury to the child or other vehicle occupants.

■Installing a Child Seat with a Lap/Shoulder Seat Belt

A child seat that is not properly secured will not adequately protect a child in a crash and may cause injury to the child or other vehicle occupants.

1. Raise the head restraint to its highest position.

2. Place the child seat on the vehicle seat.

3. Route the seat belt through the child seat according to the seat maker's instructions, and insert the latch plate into the buckle.

  • Insert the latch plate fully until it clicks.

Child Safety


4. Slowly pull the shoulder part of the belt all the way out until it stops. This activates the lockable retractor.

5. Let the seat belt completely wind up into the retractor, then try to pull it out to make sure the retractor is locked.

  • If you are able to pull the shoulder belt out, the lockable retractor is not activated. Pull the seat belt all the way out, and repeat steps 4 - 5.

Child Safety


6. Grab the shoulder part of the seat belt near the buckle, and pull up to remove any slack from the lap part of the belt.

  • When doing this, place your weight on the child seat and push it into the vehicle seat.

Child Safety


7. Make sure the child seat is firmly secured by rocking it forward and back and side to side; little movement should be felt.

8. Make sure any unused seat belt that a child can reach is buckled, the lockable retractor is activated, and the belt is fully retracted and locked.

Child Safety


To deactivate a lockable retractor, release the buckle and allow the seat belt to wind up all the way.

■Adding Security with a Tether

Two tether anchorage points are provided behind the rear outer seating positions and one in the ceiling for the rear center. A child seat that is installed with a seat belt and comes with a tether can use the tether for additional security.

Child Safety


Since a tether can provide additional security to the lap/shoulder seat belt installation, we recommend using a tether whenever one is available.

■ Using an outer anchor

1. Remove the tonneau cover.

2. Put the outer head restraint to its upper most position, then route the tether strap between the head restraint legs, and secure the tether strap hook onto the anchor.

Make sure the strap is not twisted.

3. Tighten the tether strap as instructed by the child seat manufacturer.

4. Reinstall the tonneau cover*.

Child Safety


■ Using the center anchor

1. Lower the head restraint to its lowest position.

2. Open the anchor cover.

3. Route the tether strap over the head restraint.

Make sure the strap is not twisted.

4. Secure the tether strap hook onto the anchor.

5. Tighten the tether strap as instructed by the child seat manufacturer.
