Hi, any errr..seniors here have grandkids and use latch system in their car and more specifically know if we can put a seat in the middle per manufactures suggestion using the left anchor from one side and right anchor from the other.  On the off chance that there are other Lincoln drivers that are below 100 and have young kids of their own and know the answer please let me know.

 

I would look up the information myself but being young and lazy, I don't want to.

 

Thanks.

Yes, have the seat in the middle right now in fact. Wife sits on one side, daughter of the other. Gives the both more room and grandson can see the road better. (He's become quite a backseat driver).

I use the anchors in the seats like you described, but not all car seats can be fastened this way.

If your in a hurry you can just use the center seatbelt, to strap the car seat down. Seat wiggles a little more, but not enough to come loose. When using seatbelt fastening, I will "put a knee" in the carseat to push it down harder when tightening belts. (Holds car seat more securely).

I also always use the "over the top" strap. Minor problem with the center seat is the center headrest doesn't raise up (allowing the strap to go between the headrest and seat like the side seats). So I just run the strap over the headrest to the fastener in on the back of the seat. Feel that the "over the seat" strap is important to use.

BTW, seventies is the new middle age. Ha!

Does Lincoln allow/approve it on the MKX?

 

My chair it shows can be done in the middle as long as the manufacture approves it.

Looks like it will work out nicely.
