What is a Load Leg?
The Load Leg is a standard component of every Liing base. Snapping into the bottom of the base when not in use, the metal Load Leg is adjustable in length and features a pressure indicator on the bottom to demonstrate when proper contact with the vehicle floor is achieved.
The Load Leg provides extra protection by limiting downward rotation in a collision, which in turn limits rebound movement as well. The reduction in movement that occurs, combined with the properties of the Load Leg, results in up to a 40% reduction in injury measurements.
You can see how the Load Leg improves performance in a collision in the following videos:
Is the Load Leg required for installation?
Clek strongly recommends that the Load Leg be used with all base installations, however, there are some requirements surrounding when the load leg must be used.
NOTE: If your vehicle has a storage compartment under the floor, install the Liing base with the Load Leg in that seating position only if approved by the vehicle manufacturer.
