    Lincoln mkx question

    We have a Lincoln Mkx (2008). It does not have a center latch system but can we borrow from the sides? I'm not sure how that works. Thanks!! Oh, and I can't find anything in the manual.

    You can use the inner anchors from the outboard latch in the center. The spacing is 18.1 inches. What seat do you have? The spacing is not standard so the car seat manufacturer has to approve use of the restraint with non-standard spacing.

    Unfortunately, the Graco MySize70, Size4me70, and clones have the InRight LATCH system which is not to be used with non-standard spacing.

    This doesn't mean you can't install center. Just have to use the seatbelt to install. :-)
