When the Britax ClickTight Convertible car seats — Marathon ClickTight, Boulevard ClickTight, and Advocate ClickTight — were introduced, they were completely different from most car seats on the market. While they may look like other traditional car seats, the installation method is what sets these seats apart.
It has come to our attention that many of the Britax ClickTight convertible seats are being shipped without being assembled correctly. The harness is attached an anchor on either side of the seat at the hips. This anchor has a hook at the end that the harness must slide under to secure it. Some ClickTight convertibles are being shipped with the harness on the anchor but slid under the hook.
When Britax announced their Click Tight technology, the CPST world was all ears. Was it possible that almost all guesswork could be removed from car seat installation? Could a new system make misuse nearly impossible?
When the Britax Frontier 90 was released, we did a quickie review of the new Harness-2-Booster Britax Frontier 90 with the ClickTight installation system. We have been given the opportunity to look more in-depth at the seat, and are excited to share it with you!
When Britax announced the release of the new Frontier 90 and the Pinnacle 90, I will admit that I was pretty skeptical. As a CPST I’m used to sweating, struggling, and wrangling seats to get them installed properly. And that can only happen after figuring out whether to use lower anchors, or seat belt and determining how the seat belt locks, if I need a locking clip, or if there is a lower anchors weight limit I need to account for.
