Introducing Anti-Rebound Technology

for Britax ClickTight Convertible Car Seats

Britax ClickTight Convertible with Anti-Rebound Bar (ARB)

As a leader in safety technology, Britax is providing an advanced level of rear-facing protection by adding an anti-rebound bar to select ClickTight convertible car seats.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) infants and toddlers are 5 times safer riding rear-facing until they are at least 2 years old. Our anti-rebound bar (ARB) is designed to take safety even further by reducing rebound movement in the event of a crash. 


What is Rebound?

Britax ClickTight with Anti-Rebound Bar

It is the movement that occurs in response to the initial action. This means, in the event of a crash, there are always two forces impacting your child- the initial crash force and the rebound.


Raising the Bar

The ARB is a padded, steel bar that attaches to the foot-end of the ClickTight convertible car seats to account for rebound movement. It minimizes rotation by 40%, keeping your baby securely seated during rear, frontal and side impacts so all the other safety components can transfer the energy of the crash away from your little one.

With anti-rebound technology, we continue to raise the bar in rear-facing protection.
