Have you ever seen a car seat installation that makes you cringe? I’ve seen a few where the seat is so loose that almost any positive protection that the car seat offers with proper install is negated. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking the parents. They (hopefully) just didn’t realize that the car seat wasn’t installed properly! In fact, statistics show that 3 out of 4 (yes, you read that right) car seats are installed incorrectly.
The best way to go about fixing the epidemic that is improperly installed car seats would be education. The trouble with that is the amount of time and resources that go into an educational campaign. It’s usually a large undertaking requiring a lot of financial backing. So, what is the next best thing? Designing a car seat that is almost impossible to install incorrectly!
Britax saw the need and went back to the drawing board to design a car seat that is nearly full-proof to install. Simply put, if you want peace-of-mind knowing that your car seat is installed to proper safety specifications, the Britax Clicktight range is a fantastic choice. ClickTight allows you to easily achieve a safe and secure car seat installation every time.
There are some minor differences between the Clicktight range offerings. In this case, we’re showing the Britax G1.1 Frontier ClickTight. One of my favorite features of the ClickTight series (beyond the safety factor) is that you can install the car seat with the seat belt very quickly. While other seats can be installed to safe specifications with a few minutes of effort (or a lot of minutes with great effort depending on the brand), a seat equipped with ClickTight can be installed in, quite literally, a minute. It has speed and it has full-proof safety!
- Position the Britax ClickTight seat firmly against the back rest.
- Release the ClickTight system and feed the seat belt through and connect. In the case of our ClickTight, the release is on the seat back. In newer models, the ClickTight system uses a “key” positioned on the front of the seat.
- Press down on the ClickTight system to lock into place. Double check for movement along the belt path to verify correct installation.
No more loose, imperfect installations. A safely secured car seat is nearly guaranteed! As I mentioned before, the newer ClickTight system utilizes a key the seems to be a bit easier to use than the release on our model. An example of this system can be viewed below!
If you want the assurance that you have a properly installed car seat every time, the ClickTight is a fantastic option. It doesn’t matter who the installer is or if they have been properly instructed on car seat installation. You’ll know your child is seated safely and securely! It’s one less thing you have to worry about as a parent!
