Mystery seat belt latch

I was cleaning my seats today when I noticed this seat belt latch secured to the center bottom of the passenger seat. Any ideas on what it might have been used for? Possibly a way to secure a child seat?

Child seat anchor. The bar deactivates the air bag.

If you unplug it, you will get an airbag warning on the dash. Plugging it back in makes it go away.
