ClickTight Installation System in Harness-2-Booster Car Seats


Britax Carry Long System

WHAT

The ClickTight Installation System makes safe car seat installation as simple as buckling a seat belt so that everyone can install with real confidence in just a few easy steps.

Whether installing with lower LATCH connectors or the vehicle seat belt, most of us consider car seat installation to be a bit of a struggle and we are often  left wondering “did I do it right?”  But with the revolutionary ClickTight Installation System, you can install your child’s Harness-2-Booster Seat using the vehicle seat belt and get a safe, secure and easy installation every time.


WHERE

ClickTight Release:  Located in the lower back area of the car seat, the ClickTight Release consists of 2 buttons that you squeeze to open the car seat panel.

ClickTight Tensioning Mechanism: The all-steel tubing lining the inside of the car seat panel joins with steel plates to both tension and lock the seat belt at the same time.


WHY

Almost 50% of car seats are installed incorrectly. An improperly installed car seat can leave your child vulnerable to injury in the event of a crash so, as the leader in safety technology, we worked to develop the revolutionary ClickTight Installation System.  ClickTight allows you to easily achieve a safe and secure car seat installation every time.

LATCH has weight limits. Often with Harness-2-Booster seats, children can use the 5-pt harness system into higher weight capacities.  This is great because according to the AAP, your child should ride in a 5-pt harness for as long as possible.  The downside is that installing your car seat using the lower anchor (LATCH) system has limitations as your child gets bigger.  When the combined weight of your child and car seat is 65 pounds or more for forward-facing car seats, you must install the car seat using the vehicle seat belt instead of the lower anchor (LATCH) system.  ClickTight uses the vehicle seat belt to achieve a safe and secure installation every time so you don’t have to worry about the limitations of LATCH.

Effortless installation. ClickTight allows you to achieve a safe install without all the effort – no shoving, kneeing or yanking required.  ClickTight does all the work for you.  The unique combination of an extremely simple yet secure installation allows you to install with real confidence every time.
