Do you need anchor points installed?

All new vehicles sold in Australia must meet certain safety requirements called Australian Design Rules. For child restraints, the most important design rule is the provision of child restraint anchorage points.

If your car is one of the following types, and was built after the dates below, it'll have anchorage points:

  • Sedans manufactured after July 1976
  • Station wagons manufactured after January 1977
  • Hatchbacks manufactured after January 1977
  • Light passenger vans (up to 12 seats) manufactured after January 1986
  • 4WDs manufactured after July 1990

Vehicles classified as commercial vehicles (for example, utes, vans etc. aren't required to have anchorage points. However, some manufacturers of later model commercial vehicles have opted to supply them.

If your vehicle is an older or commercial vehicle that does not have anchorage points, it may be possible to have them fitted. Contact one of the businesses below that offer this service:
