Seat Belt or Lower Anchors: Pick One

It's a common belief that if one is good, both must be twice as good!  But this is not the case. In fact, with all but 2  car seats at this time, using both seat belt and lower anchors is strictly prohibited and is dangerous.   The system that is best to use will depend on your car seat, your child's size and the seating location in your vehicle.  Check your manuals to see which system you're allowed to use.  If either is acceptable, choose the one which gives you the best installation.
