Mazda CX-3: Installing Child-Restraint Systems / Using ISOFIX Lower Anchor (Mexico)/Using LATCH Lower Anchor (Except Mexico)

Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / Essential Safety Equipment / Child Restraint / Installing Child-Restraint Systems / Using ISOFIX Lower Anchor (Mexico)/Using LATCH Lower Anchor (Except Mexico)

Your Mazda is equipped with ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors for attachment of specially designed ISOFIX/LATCH*1 child-restraint systems in the rear seats. Both anchors must be used, otherwise the seat will bounce around and put the child in danger. Most ISOFIX/ LATCH*1 child-restraint systems must also be used in conjunction with a tether to be effective. If they have a tether you must use it to better assure your child's safety.

WARNING

Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the use of the child-restraint system: An unsecured child-restraint system is dangerous. In a sudden stop or a collision it could move causing serious injury or death to the child or other occupants. Make sure the child-restraint system is properly secured in place according to the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions.

Never attach two child-restraint systems to the same ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchor: Attaching two child-restraint systems to the same ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchor is dangerous. In a collision, one anchor may not be strong enough to hold two child-restraint system attachments, and it may break, causing serious injury or death. If you use the seat position for another child-restraint system when an outboard ISOFIX/LATCH*1 position is occupied, use the center seat belts instead, and the tether if tether-equipped.

Make sure the child-restraint system is properly secured: An unsecured child-restraint system is dangerous. In a sudden stop or a collision it could move causing serious injury or death to the child or other occupants. Follow the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions on belt routing to secure the seat just as you would with a child in it so that nobody is tempted to put a child in an improperly secured seat later on. When not in use, remove it from the vehicle or fasten it with a seat belt, or attach it to BOTH ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors for ISOFIX/LATCH*1 child-restraint systems.

Make sure there are no seat belts or foreign objects near or around the ISOFIX/LATCH*1 child-restraint system: Not following the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions when installing the child-restraint system is dangerous. If seat belts or a foreign object prevent the child-restraint system from being securely attached to the ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors and the child-restraint system is installed improperly, the child-restraint system could move in a sudden stop or collision causing serious injury or death to the child or other occupants. When installing the child-restraint system, make sure there are no seat belts or foreign objects near or around the ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors. Always follow the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions.

Installation on rear outboard seats

  1. First, adjust the front seat to allow clearance between the child-restraint system and the front seat.

    Refer to Adjusting the Driver's Seat.

    Refer to Adjusting the Front Passenger's Seat.

  2. Make sure the seatback is securely latched by pushing it back until it is fully locked.
  3. Expand the open seams on the rear of the seat bottom slightly to verify the locations of the ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors.

    NOTE

    The markings above the ISOFIX/ LATCH*1 lower anchors indicate the locations of the ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors for the attachment of a child-restraint system.

  4. Remove the head restraint. However, when installing a backless booster seat, always install the vehicle head restraint to the seat where the backless booster seat is installed.

    Refer to Head Restraints.

  5. Secure the child-restraint system using BOTH ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors, following the child-restraint system manufacturer's instruction. Pull on the child-restraint to be sure both anchors are engaged.
  6. If your child-restraint system came equipped with a tether, that means it is very important to properly secure the tether for child safety. Please carefully follow the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions when installing tethers.

WARNING

Use the tether and tether anchor only for a child-restraint system: Using the tether or tether anchor to secure anything but a child-restraint system is dangerous. This could weaken or damage the tether or tether anchor and result in injury.

Always remove the head restraint and install child-restraint system (except when installing a backless booster seat): Installing a child-restraint system without removing the head restraint is dangerous. The child-restraint system cannot be installed correctly which may result in death or injury to the child in a collision.

Always attach the tether strap to the correct tether anchor position: Attaching the tether strap to the incorrect tether anchor position is dangerous. In a collision, the tether strap could come off and loosen the child-restraint system. If the child-restraint system moves it could result in death or injury to the child.

Always install the head restraint and adjust it to the appropriate position after removing the child-restraint system: Driving with the head restraint removed is dangerous as impact to the occupant's head cannot be prevented during emergency braking or in a collision, which could result in a serious accident, injury or death.

Refer to Head Restraints

Installation on rear center seat

The ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors at the center of the rear seat are much further apart than the sets of ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors for child-restraint system installation at other seating positions. Child-restraint systems with rigid ISOFIX/ LATCH*1 attachments cannot be installed on the center seating position. Some ISOFIX/LATCH*1 equipped child-restraint systems can be placed in the center position and will reach the nearest ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors which are 360 mm (14.2 in) apart. ISOFIX/ LATCH*1 compatible child-restraint systems (with attachments on belt webbing) can be used at this seating position only if the child-restraint system manufacturer's instructions state that the child-restraint system can be installed to ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchors that are 360 mm (14.2 in) apart. Do not attach two child-restraint systems to the same ISOFIX/LATCH*1 lower anchor. If your child-restraint system has a tether, it must also be used for your child's optimum safety.

The procedure for installation on the rear outboard seats is the same.
