FORT MILL, S.C. – February 6, 2019: Britax Child Safety, Inc., U.S. manufacturer of car seats and leader in child passenger safety technology, along with select Brixy specialty baby product stores, is pleased to introduce Britax SafeWash car seats. This new line features covers that do not have added flame retardant chemicals, making them safe to machine wash and dry again and again while maintaining safety properties.

“We know that it’s inevitable for kids to make a mess in their car seats,” said Kelly Thomas, Britax Brand Manager. “Our Britax Quality and Fashion teams have sourced a proprietary fabric that is safe to machine wash and dry. Unlike other car seats, which use chemicals that can wash off, our SafeWash fabric has a knit construction that makes it naturally flame retardant. We’re proud to provide this solution that maintains safety properties without those added chemicals.”

The new SafeWash covers are available now at participating Brixy specialty baby stores in the Otto fashion (light grey) on Britax car seats providing protection from birth-to-big kid. The line includes an infant car seat, convertible car seat and harness-2-booster, all of which maintain the premium safety and functionality for which Britax is best known. All three models are designed, engineered, tested and assembled with U.S. and global components at the Britax Americas Headquarters in Fort Mill, S.C.

The Britax Endeavours infant car seat (US MSRP: $289.99) is designed for rear-facing safety, mobility and convenience from 4 to 35 pounds. The anti-rebound bar reduces rebound rotation up to 30 percent in the event of a crash. Parents can easily and securely install the car seat, allowing baby to ride safely with or without a base.

The Advocate® ClickTight® convertible (US MSRP: $359.99) accommodates infants through children up to 65 pounds and includes the ClickTight Installation System for the easiest installation in every car, every time. A deep, energy-absorbing shell, quick-adjust head protection and exterior side cushions form three layers of side protection – creating the ultimate safety for your child.

Premium safety and comfort make the Pinnacle ClickTight (US MSRP: $309.99) one of the most popular harness-2-boosters for forward-facing toddlers and big kids. With the ClickTight Installation System, everyone can install with confidence. Side Impact Protection features include external cushions for maximum crash force absorption and a foam headrest to keep the head and neck secure.

“At Brixy, we listen to parents and work hard to bring them premium products that make their lives easier,” said Jacob Muller, Brixy President. “We’re honored to partner with Britax to offer SafeWash car seats, which provides parents extra innovation and convenience, along with Britax’s long history of safety.”
