Baby seats in Defender 110

I have a 2013 Defender 110 and was wondering if it's possible to install a baby seat

Your 110 has seat belts, so yes.

You truck my not have baby seat anchors so the answer is maybe. Is it legal in Australia to anchor a baby seat with just the seat belts?

Why wouldn't it be? Car seats are made for both. If this is the law it would mean if you have kids you automatically need a car 2003 or newer.

Defender is obviously an exception.

See my first post.

Yes, seatbelts are legal to restrain a car seat in Australia.

Seat belts are actually a superior attachment to the LATCH system, safety-wise. It's not as convenient but your seat is restrained by a wide piece of seat belt webbing, versus the two dinky clips and straps of the LATCH. The belt is far less convenient, though, and it's very difficult (maybe impossible) to get older seatbelts to lock in place. On my LR4, I can pull the belt all the way out and then let it retract and it will lock my toddler in place in his seat. With my '87 110, however, it's a different story. I can't seem to force the seat belt into a locked configuration.

I've often dreamed of an aftermarket LATCH system for the defender: a little bracket that you could bolt down behind the seat with two little loops sticking between the cushions.

When you describe it like that, it seems like a fairly simple proposition. I, too have thought about doing the same thing to all my pre-'99 trucks. The belt is more reassuring than relying on a clip, but such a pita to be doing often when swapping seats between vehicles.
