Use of inboard lower anchors from the outboard seating positions (center seating use)

Use of inboard lower anchors from the outboard seating positions (center 
seating use)  - Installing child safety seats with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for 
CHildren) attachments - Safety seats for children - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

The lower anchors at the center of the second row rear seat are spaced 460 mm (18 inches) apart. The standardized spacing for LATCH lower anchors is 280 mm (11 inches) center to center. A child seat with rigid LATCH attachments cannot be installed at the center seating position.

LATCH compatible child seats (with attachments on belt webbing) can only be used at this seating position provided that the child seat manufacturers instructions permit use with the anchor spacing stated.

Do not attach a child seat to any lower anchor if an adjacent child seat is attached to that anchor.

WARNING: The standardized spacing for LATCH lower anchors is 280 mm (11 inches) center to center. Do not use LATCH lower anchors for the center seating position unless the child seat manufacturers instructions permit and specify using anchors spaced at least as far apart as those in this vehicle.

Each time you use the safety seat, check that the seat is properly attached to the lower anchors and tether anchor, if applicable. Tug the child seat from side to side and forward and back where it is secured to the vehicle. The seat should move less than one inch when you do this for a proper installation.

If the safety seat is not anchored properly, the risk of a child being injured in a crash greatly increases.
