I don’t do many product reviews on my blog, because…well, I just don’t. That’s mostly because I usually like to talk about daddyhood stuff around here – but I will talk about products that I feel will enhance your lives as parents, and I found one.
If you’re in the market for car seats, you should give a strong look to Britax. I have two of them — both are Frontier ClickTight seats. Here are a few reasons why I dig them so much.
#1: The seats are safe. And let’s be real — that’s the main reason why anyone should buy car seats. For more information, check out its SafeCell Impact Protection.
#2: The seats look pretty cool. My oldest daughter is into the funky designs so she opted for the kaleidoscope pattern, and my youngest chose the congo (red). Not to mention, the seats are comfortable and my girls love sitting in them. As a dad, the main thing I care about is if the kiddos are happy. Because if they’re happy, I’m happy.
#3: I also like how the seats each have two built in cup holders for snacks/food/drinks (a must for them). I can’t count how many times I’ve had seats with cup holders that broke off or were lost due to not being built in. These are so much better.
#4: The ClickTight system is simply amazing. So what is the ClickTight, you ask? It’s simply a technology created for installing car seats using the normal seat belts instead of the latch connectors. If you’re a parent who sometimes moves car seats around to different cars, or gets frustrated by complex installations, then this is the seat for you. Installation is an absolute breeze. You can literally install it in less than a minute. Don’t believe me? Check out this video.
Trust me on this – the ClickTight is not a gimmick. You’ll get a completely rock solid installation in record time. I don’t find that I get blown away by car seat technology that often (okay, it has never happened before this), but this absolutely blew my mind. It’s awesome.
Fair warning: The seats are a tad on the heavy side, or maybe I just haven’t worked out in a while. Who knows?
Overall, Britax created an absolute winner with this car seat – and the ClickTight technology just takes it completely over the edge. Five stars all the way.
In my world, I want simplicity and safety, and Britax completely delivered on both fronts.
In the interest of full disclosure, Britax provided these seats to me to provide a review, but all of the opinions are 100% my own. As always, conduct your own research to determine the best car seat for your family.
