Child restraint anchor bracket for LandCruiser 79

Multidrive Technology has developed and engineered a child restraint anchor bracket to suit Toyota LandCruiser 79 Double Cab pick-ups.

Despite its five-seat capacity, you might be surprised to know that you can’t fit a child seat in the back of a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Double Cab… unless you fit a Multidrive Technology (MDT) Child Restraint Anchor Bracket, that is.

That’s right! Due to its commercial-vehicle origins, even the top-spec LC79 GXL variant is not equipped with OEM child restraint points, but MDT has an ADR-compliant and tested solution. With an MDT Child Restraint Anchor Bracket installed to the rear support pillar of the LC79 Double Cab, there are three secure points of attachment for certified child-seating products.

The MDT bracket has been independently verified by a third-party engineer who tested both the LandCruiser’s OEM rear seat as well as the child restraint anchor bracket. As a result the product is certified to ADR 34/03 requirements. MDT states that post-fitment engineering certification may be required in some states, but this made easy thanks to the supplied test-data report extract.

The MDT anchor bracket is supplied in kit form with easy to follow installation instructions, and it can be either self-fitted or fitted by a workshop in around 30 minutes. Importantly, whilst drilling is required, it remains internal, which means no leaks and no rust.

The MDT anchor bracket is supplied with all fitting hardware including the bracket itself, fasteners, three child seat anchors and documentation, including comprehensive step-by-step fitting instructions complete with pictures to make the job as easy as possible.

The MDT anchor bracket also fits with aftermarket rear wall/sub panel kits and ensures full usage of the floor space behind the rear seats is retained.
