Our family has been incredibly fortunate to receive not only a new car seat for my daughter ( read my review here) but one for my son! Britax recently sent us the Britax Advocate Clicktight Convertible car seat for our youngest to try out. As I mentioned in my last review how important having a safe car seat is to my family and the Britax Advocate fit the bill perfectly. The Clicktight technology that is in both the Pinnacle and Advocate aids in keeping your child safe and makes installation a breeze!
* While I did receive this car seat in exchange for this review, as always my opinions are my own*
- ClickTight Technology- This new feature has made car seat installation a breeze! Simply, pop open the base and thread the seat belt though. No more digging into your seat trying to find those clasps! For so long, I was just guessing and hoping that my child 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.
- Anti-Rebound Bar- This helps limit seat rotation in a cash when installed in the rear-facing position
- SafeCell Impact Stabilizing Steel Frame- The steel frame is throughout the spine of the car seat reducing forward flex and at the connection points of the vehicle
- Harness Indicator- This gives an audible click when the seat is at the correct tightness for your child
- Safecell 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- the Advocate allows your child to rear face up to 40lbs and front face from 22lbs – 65lbs
- Recline- An amazing 7 position recline with an automatic level indicator adjusts for your child’s comfort while giving you the best installation angle for your vehicle
- EZ Buckle Seats- This keeps the buckle and straps out of your way while you’re placing your child in the seat. which is very handy when you have a squirmy toddler!
- Expiry- ClickTight car seats manufactured after June 2010 have a service life of 10 years!! So long as we do not get into any accidents I should be able to pass this seat down to my son, which is amazing.
Things That We Loved!
Britax is a true leader in safety technology and it shows in the incredible car seats that they manufacture. Between the Clicktight features, Safecell impact protection, and the impact stabilizing steel frame I know my child will be as safe as possible if we were in an accident. It is also incredibly easy to install thanks to the Clicktight installation system and the automatic level indicator! Thanks to the harness indicator there is no more second guessing if your child’s harness is properly tightened! Being able to rear face my son as long as possible is very important to me and with the Britax Advocate I know we will be able to do that while keeping him very comfortable!
If you’re looking for a new car seat I would definitely recommend the Britax Advocate Clickight car seat, for more information check out their website here!
