Nissan Sentra Owners Manual: Precautions on child restraints


  • Failure to follow the warnings and instructions for proper use and installation of child restraints could result in serious injury or death of a child or other passengers in a sudden stop or collision:

  • The child restraint must be used and installed properly. Always follow all of the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions for installation and use.

  • Infants and children should never be held on anyone’s lap. Even the strongest adult cannot resist the forces of a collision.

  • Do not put a seat belt around both a child and another passenger.

  • NISSAN recommends that all child restraints be installed in the rear seat. Studies show that children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. If you must install a forward-facing child restraint in the front seat, see “Forward-facing child restraint installation using the seat belts” in this section.

  • Even with the NISSAN Advanced Air Bag System, never install a rearfacing child restraint in the front seat.

    An inflating air bag could seriously injure or kill a child. A rear-facing child restraint must only be used in the rear seat.

  • Be sure to purchase a child restraint that will fit the child and vehicle.

    Some child restraints may not fit properly in your vehicle.

  • Child restraint anchor points are designed to withstand loads from child restraints that are properly fitted.

  • Never use the anchor points for adult seat belts or harnesses.

  • A child restraint with a top tether strap should not be used in the front passenger seat.

  • Keep seatbacks as upright as possible after fitting the child restraint.

  • Infants and children should always be placed in an appropriate child restraint while in the vehicle.

  • When the child restraint is not in use, keep it secured with the LATCH system or a seat belt. In a sudden stop or collision, loose objects can injure occupants or damage the vehicle.


A child restraint in a closed vehicle can become very hot. Check the seating surface and buckles before placing a child in the child restraint.

This vehicle is equipped with a universal child restraint anchor system, referred to as the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system.

Some child restraints include rigid or webbing-mounted attachments that can be connected to these anchors. For details, see “LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system” in this section.

If you do not have a LATCH compatible child restraint, the vehicle seat belts can be used.

Several manufacturers offer child restraints for infants and children of various sizes. When selecting any child restraint, keep the following points in mind:

All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories require that infants and small children be restrained in an approved child restraint at all times while the vehicle is being operated. Canadian law requires the top tether strap on forward-facing child restraints be secured to the designated anchor point on the vehicle.

Your vehicle is equipped with special anchor points that are used with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system compatible child restraints. This system may also be referred to as the ISOFIX or ISOFIX compatible system.

With this system, you do not have to use a vehicle seat belt to secure the child restraint.

The LATCH anchor points are provided to install child restraints in the rear outboard seating positions only. Do not attempt to install a child restraint in the center position using the LATCH anchors.
