A car seat is one of the most important purchases you are going to make as a parent. Ensuring you are buying a crash-certified seat by a company, you can trust will give you so much peace of mind. You can buy lots of things second-hand for your little one but this isn’t one of them. This is because you do not know if it has been in an accident or not and if it has it is no longer safe. Britax is a brand that is at the top of the game but isn’t incredibly expensive. So, we are sharing with you one of their best car seats!
Who Is Britax?
Britax is a Britain-based company that came to the USA all the way back in 1996. They lead the way in safety technology with 50 years under their belts producing car seats, strollers, and travel systems.
Prior to coming out with the Grow With You Britax had the Pinnacle booster seat which is a very similar model. This car seat is pretty amazing as it converts from a harness to a seat belt as your child grows. Here are some of the features you should know about
ClickTight Technology – A complete game-changer when it comes to installing your car seat. Britax has made it as easy as can be! Simply, pop opens the base and thread the seat belt through. No more digging into your seat trying to find those clasps! For so long, I was just guessing and hoping that my child’s harness was tight enough. With the ClickTight technology, when the harness is at the proper level of tightness you will hear an audible clicking noise. This gave us immense peace of mind knowing they were in their seat properly.
- Side Impact Cushion- If you’re looking for all the bells and whistles in the safety department this is the seat for you! With, energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the seat this aims to reduce impact crash energy before reaching your child.
- Safe cell Base- This system helps keep your child safe by compressing and lowering the center of gravity reducing the forward movement of the seat.
- Weight Capacity- Your child is able to stay in a 5-point harness until they are 65lbs, which was a huge selling feature for me. Plus, they as able to use this seat all the way up to 120lbs, this is the last seat you will ever need!
- No Thread Harness- This is now a standard is many of Britax’s car seats but I love this feature. I know what a pain it can be to have to re-thread a harness as your child grows and it is a relief to know I will never need to do it again with our new seats.
- Expiry- ClickTight seats have a 9-year expiry!
- Steel Frame – Reinforces the seat structure to help keep it sturdy and stabilized
- Two Recline Positions – Help you find the most comfortable fit for your child and the best fit for your vehicle
