Today, Marvin answers another genuine email he received from a real live emailer!
“Heya Marv, how’s it goin’? As a concerned Father, I want to make sure that my child is safe, so I was surprised when this nosey lady in the car seat aisle told me that I can’t use both LATCH and a seatbelt the same time to secure my DS’s car seat. I mean, two are always better than one right? What if the seatbelt were to fail? I saw that sad Kyle Miller video. If the seatbelt were to fail, I’d have the LATCH to back it up, and vice versa. Redundancy and having a back up plan has always been the best way to go. Right? So what’s the big deal? Why can’t I use both LATCH and a seatbelt at the same time to install my DS’s seat?
