Britax Revolutionizes Car Seats By Getting Creative


There is nothing like that feeling of having a child.  There is that feeling that no matter what it would take that you would protect that little person at any cost. As many new parents find out though, we suddenly realize that when he head to the car to take them home for the first time, we realize we have no idea what we are doing.  Did we install the carseat the right way? What will happen if we didn’t? Are we  going to totally fail as parents? Why didn't we memorize that car seat manual when we had the chance?
All of our stuff from our baby shower sat in the corner of our dining room for what seemed like an eternity. Then, the day came and while my wife was screaming in pain on the way to the hospital, I forgot everything I was studying in preparation for that very moment. I'm not even sure to this day that I parked the car in a safe area when we finally did make it to the hospital. Kids have a way of changing your plans.

I used to cram with my wife before the baby was born. We read What To Expect When You're Expecting and poured over what Dr. Spock said about expectations. But with all the information you read up on to prepare yourself for that child, all this stuff gets log jammed in your brain. Pretty soon you are sympathy eating ice cream out of the freezer with a giant oversized spoon with the kind you would use when your college roommate refused to do the dishes.

Car seats have pretty much been the same since our first child but Britax has changed all that with the revolutionary ClickTight Installation system. When something kid related comes around that changes the game, parents will want to take notice. Ever see something kid related and think "Man, I wish I had  invented that!"  The Harness-2-Booster seat did that for me and the installation blew my mind.
Fumbling with latches, and trying to get them secure is a hassle not to mention that when you have to transfer one seat from one car to another, you wonder if it is really worth the trouble.  ClickTight takes the guesswork out of installing it properly and what is even better is that it is just as easy to remove. Open the panel, stretch the safety belt across it, and snap down the panel. That's it! 

We took our first car trip with the new seat towards the end of the summer. Our three year old loved the armrests built in to her seat and she could ride comfortably.  As a guy who looks into the cupholder situation when it comes to new cars, the Frontier 90 has ample cup holders on both sides with a recessed area for toys or juice boxes with just the right size for little hands to access.

What is even better is that this car seat will grow with our daughter because it is a Harness - 2 - Booster model.  With a weight limit of 90 lbs in harness mode and a weight limit of 120 pounds in booster mode, Britax is counting on being in your family's life for a long time.   Another nice feature is the ability to remove the cover without removing all of the straps. With our little ones eating in the car and dropping endless snacks down the black hole that we call the seat, it's nice to have that option without disassembling the entire thing just to get it clean again.

Britax is a company my family and I have been investing in since the kids were small. With the wide variety of car seats, infant carriers, and strollers we know that each item upholds the quality and craftsmanship we have come to expect from them.  Not only that, but Britax invests in dads in ways that some brands do not.  For my personal Philly Dads Group, they are sending a representative to teach dads about car seat safety as well as supporting National Babywearing Week by sponsoring 11 cities across the country with Meetup events centered around babywearing. That is brand that shows me that while I am investing in them, they are also investing in me by building a relationship beyond just a consumer.

Does that sound like a company you would want to be involved with? Now is your chance. Britax is offering a giveaway of the very car seat, the Frontier 90 Harness -2- Booster that they let me test!

Enter the giveaway below for your chance. Entrants must be at least 18 years old and be a US resident only. One winner will be chosen at random.

  2. The fact that you can remove the cover without all the belts is phenomenal. I have to say I got very good at putting those darn belts back in their spots after cleaning thousands of fruit snacks out of the black hole.

  6. How nice! The Clicktight system is wonderful. I'd like that extra reassurance that I did it correctly. The weight limit and arm rests are great, too! Thanks for the opportunity!

  7. My son is tall but he's only 5 and i dont feel safe with him in a backless boster or a booster that guides the car belt just yet. So i love that this is a high back booster with a 5point harness. We live in DFW and there are accidents on the highways every single day here. I want to keep my 3kids as safe as possible while on the road.

  21. My two favorite things about this seat are:

    1. The 9 harness height positions. Not all kids are made equal so, having the 9 positions is a great fit for a growing family

    2. Certified for Aircraft Travel in Harness Mode :) :) :) :D :D :D <— YES I am smiling a lot! I love my current car seat, BUT it is too wide for aircrafts and sadly for the car seat (happily for me) we travel a lot! So that is a must in our next car seats :)

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such amazing prize :)

    What an AWESOME giveaway! Want to win this booster seat for my 4 year old adorable niece who is ready to graduate to the next level. Of course, who's better than Britax to consider for all the important features such as safety, quality, durability etc?! I've been eying this booster seat to gift my niece for awhile already and had done an insane amount of research. There are just too many wonderful pros about it, for instance: Click Tight Technology which is the BIGGEST plus to foolproof installation, extended harness, ease in changing harness height to grow with your child and adjust to weight limits, comfort, removable fabric, and cupholders! I've compared many brands and Britax sure is the creme of the crops in brands for safety.

    I have a 2 year old myself and expecting another this November - would love to win this for my niece and secretly can't wait till she outgrows it tooso my little ones can enjoy as well...lol! Entered so many Britax giveaways but never any luck...=( Sprinkling fairy dust around for good luck this time! Thanks for the awesome giveaway and again, kudos to being a daddy blogger!!

  37. The cup holders are my favorite! It would stop so many spills!

  78. There is no way a manufacturer would say yes to both. She needs to call back. Using both essentially subjects the seat to two back to back crashes as the belts are going to tighten as different rates. It isn't worth it to take the chance that the seat can handle thatread me
