I was thrilled to have been recently invited to the #BritaxGameChanger event in NYC. As a parent, car seat safety is something important to me so to be able to attend the event and get to hear about the “game changer” was exciting! Were you following the #BritaxGameChanger hashtag last week? If not, you may have missed out on the news that Britax is adding the ClickTight Installation System to their convertible car seats!
At the event attendees heard from Sarah Tilton, Britax Child Passenger Safety Advocacy Manager and Curtis Strong, Britax Director of New Product Development. They discussed how three out of four car seats are installed incorrectly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association. That statistic is pretty alarming! Also mentioned was that face that since the introduction of ClickTight on Harness-2-Booster seats (Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90), Britax has noticed a drop in customer service calls involving questions about Harness-2-Booster installations!
If you are not familiar with the ClickTight technology, the system allows you to install by simply opening the front of the car seat, buckling the seat belt across the belt path and then clicking the seat shut for a proper and secure installation. Sounds incredibly easy, right? That’s because it is! There is no shoving, kneeing, or yanking required as with most other convertible car seats and we all know how fun that can be (can you sense the sarcasm?). You can check out how easy instalation is by watching the upcoming Britax TV ad that was previewed at the event!
Not only is are the ClickTight Car Seats super easy to securly install, The new Britax Convertible Car Seats with ClickTight surround children with SafeCell Impact Protection to protect well beyond federal safety requirements! The Side Impact Protection is a system that provides protection to your little one during a side impact crash and the system composed of a rigid shell with deep side walls and the energy-absorbing foam that lines the shell. In a side impact, the Side Impact Protection utilizes keeps your child’s head and chest protected from the side impact crash forces.
As mentioned, the ClickTight Technology is currently available in the Harness-2-Booster car seats and will be available in the convertible car seats which include the Marathon ClickTight, the Boulevard ClickTight and the Advocate ClickTight starting in late September.
