Asked by Jan 20, 2014 at 10:48 AM about the 2002 Chevrolet Blazer 4 Door LS

Question type: General

Does the 2002 Chevy Blazer meet FMVSS 213 and 225?  Details of which are as follows

*User-ready top tether strap anchorage hardware (such as a ring, bar, bracket, or webbing loop) for three rear seating positions were available in most passenger vehicles beginning with model year 2000 and were required in all cars, minivans, and pick-up trucks by model year 2001.

◾Lower anchors for child restraints, each consisting of two rigid bars 6 mm in diameter and 25-50 mm long, are present in the vehicle seat bight (the crack between the seat back and seat cushion) in specified seating positions in all cars, minivans, and pick-up trucks after September 1, 2002 (model year 2003). and in many made before that date.

◾Requirements apply to all passenger cars, trucks, and multipurpose passenger vehicles under 8500 lbs.; also apply to buses under 10,000 lbs.

◾Current belt lockability requirement remains effective until September 1, 2012, so child restraints without new hardware can be attached with regular vehicle belts. After that date, only vehicle belts in seating positions without lower anchorage systems must meet lockability requirement (capable of securing a child restraint without added equipment, such as a locking clip).

I would say yes since this is a 2002 Model Blazer. Even vehicles built in late 2001 would have to conform to the 2002 model year standard since they were sold as 2002 models. A word of caution here though. Child seats placed in the rear seating area should be positioned in the center seating space (not behind the driver or front passenger seat). The load carrying standards of 150 pounds per person per seat that were introduced for the 1968 models are still in place today. In certain collisions the front seat back can break and allow the seat and person to be thrown rearward and crush to death an infant or small children restrained in a car seat. HTH. -Jim
