Quick-Adjust Harness


Britax Carry Long System

WHAT

Our quick-adjust, no-rethread harness allows you to easily move the harness height upward for a comfortable and secure fit as your child grows.


WHERE

On most Britax products, you can find the quick-adjust harness height adjuster on the front of the seat at the top of the head rest. On some older models, the adjuster may be located on the back of the seat.


WHY

A quick-adjust, no-rethread harness allows for a more accurate harness fit for your child. The harness straps should be as close to your child’s shoulder level as possible. This will minimize your child’s movement in the event of a crash, reducing the potential for injury.

In order to adjust the harness height with a standard harness system, you have to detach the straps from the metal yoke on the back of the seat, rethread the straps through a new slot in the car seat shell, and then reattach them to the metal yoke. Not only does this manual adjustment leave room for error, but it also requires you to uninstall the seat from your vehicle before you can make adjustments.


HOW

To adjust the harness height on a car seat featuring our no-rethread, quick-adjust harness, simply squeeze the harness height adjuster and slide up or down to the desired position.
