When it comes to getting my kids in the vehicle, car seats are extremely important to me. I want to make sure they’re fastened in the proper way and that they’re always comfortable. I don’t ever want my child to be uncomfortable in a car seat. Both of my daughters are still in car seats because they’re 4 and 6.

I’m always on the look out for a great car seat for my daughters. The features of each car seat are what can really catch my attention as well as what the appropriate age, height or weight is. The car seats that I have always gone for, have been those that can be used from the ages of birth on up to about a 100 lb limit. I think these are great because you don’t have to buy a new car seat for years. You’ll spend a certain price and use it for many years with your children.

I was recently given the opportunity to review a car seat from Britax. The car seat I was given is called the Frontier Clicktight. I was extremely excited to be able to try out this car seat with my daughters. I knew it was going to be a great fit for them. This car seat can be used as a forward facing harness or a booster. Both of my daughters weigh a little under 40 lbs., so I know that this car seat is going to last them a long time. They’re both in the 40 inch range as well.

I was very surprised to see how beautiful this car seat was. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a brand new car seat. It is a bit on the heavier side (25 lbs.), which is actually a good thing because of all the wonderful features it has. You couldn’t get a light car seat with all these amazing features.

One of the reasons I really love this car seat is because it’s easy to tighten and loosen the straps. I have always had a difficult time doing this with my old car seats. With this car seat, it’s so simple. There is a button hidden underneath that you push and while keeping it pushed when you pull on the straps to loosen them. Then you just pull on the bottom strap located at the bottom of the front of the car seat to tighten it.

My youngest daughter Tesla, who is four, loved being in the car seat. She’s very small for her age, so I like to keep her strapped in nicely still. She’s only about 37 lbs and I believe she’s about 40 inches, maybe a little taller. This car seat fit her very comfortably.

The quick adjust harness helps you adjust to your childs height. As your child grows you can move it up more so they fit securely in. You can adjust it by pulling up to make it taller for children that are taller in height or you can move it down to make it lower for a child that is smaller in height. It’s very simple to adjust. You’ll want the harness straps to be as close to your childs shoulder level as possible. This can help protect your children during a car crash.

The CLICKTIGHT is a very important feature of this car seat. You can click on the CLICKTIGHT button to open up a piece that is where you put the seatbelt to make sure it’s secure. This helps so that the car seat doesn’t move around. I’ve made sure the seat is secure by wiggling it around to make sure it didn’t move. It was very secure and stayed in place. It never moved once. Once the seatbelt is secured in place, you can push back down on the piece and it will click back in place. It’s a very simple feature and very effective. It took me less than 20 seconds to get the seatbelt secured so that the seat didn’t move. It’s amazing how quick and easy this feature is.

If you move open the CLICKTIGHT you’ll locate two slots in the CLICKTIGHT cover. If you squeeze those you’ll open up a storage area that has lower connectors in it. These lower connectors can be used to secure the car seat more. To release them you can press and hold on the red release buttons. Then you can pull on them and they will get released. To get them back in the storage area you are able to “click” them back in place by just pushing them into a slot. I love this option a lot and it’s nice that they’re hidden in a storage area.

The cup holders/storage are a nice touch to the car seat. I love having the cup holders closer to my child because they usually use the ones that are in our vehicles. They can’t always reach for their drinks and they have to ask my husband or I to get their drinks for them. This can be a huge problem when it’s just me in the car driving my girls somewhere. I can’t reach for their cups while they’re driving. This is why I love the cup holders on the car seat because they can reach for their drinks themselves. They could even put some toys or maybe even a few snacks in the holders. They definitely come in handy for my children.

The 2 layers of side protection are great for keeping your children comfortable. They’re also great for head protection. My kids seem to fall asleep in the car a lot, and usually their heads go down because the car seat doesn’t have enough protection to keep their heads up. This car seat is great for helping them when they fall asleep.

Car seat safety is extremely important to me, and should be to everyone. You always want to make sure you’re properly putting your child in their car seat. It can be easy to do it the wrong way, so make sure you’re taking the time to check out all the instructions when you get a new car seat. Brixy stores are located coast-to-coast and each store’s knowledgeable staff can advise parents on current laws and more importantly, best practice. You can also check out your state laws on car safety. Every state can be different, so make sure to check in with them.

After using this Britax Frontier clicktight car seat with my children, I saw how easy it was and how well my child fit in it. I can see that this car seat is going to be long-lasting for my girls. It’s great for those that love car seats that can move up in size when the children get older. I’ve always loved car seats that can be used for different sizes and ages. I would certainly highly recommend this car seat to anyone.

    • That’s great to hear you’d use these if you could. I know when my kids are out of car seats there will always be grandkids when they get much older. 🙂

  1. My little guys are past the car seat age, but I remember how much time I put into picking one! I think the Britax looks like a safe great choice that any parent can feel good about putting their kiddos into!

    • It has a lot of amazing features. It’s actually more like a couple seats in one. One for harness and the other for booster. It’s so nice too!

  2. What great features. Any kid would be lucky to have such a great car seat. I bought two Britax for my kids when they were little.

    • It certainly is an amazing car seat. I also wish they had some of these when I was younger. I’m so glad they have come such a long way. There are so many more improvements they have made.

  3. I really love how you covered all the specs! A car seat really does have to do a lot of work to keep the kids safe nowadays. Thanks for the insight. I have a couple mommas-to-be asking around so I’ll spread the word.

  4. So important. My daughter loves her carseat; we just got a new one recently as a gift and she was more excited than us! Cupholders are super necessary, too… for random toys, of course.

  5. All four of my children used Britax carseats; they’re amazingly comfortable! Most importantly they have the most up to date safety as you mentioned. The added cup holders and storage tray would have been great for my kids!

  6. Two things I don’t do – children or driving! LOL I don’t have kids and in NYC I have no need to drive as we take mass transit everywhere it moves faster than sitting in traffic! Glad that the seat worked well for your family!

  7. That looks like a really great car seat. The problem we are having right now with our 3 year old is that he pulls the buckle down and gets his hands out from the sides. Do you think this car seat would stop him from doing that?

  8. I don’t think I have ever used Britax before or not, but I have heard nothing but good about this brand over the years. Your daughter seems to really like her car seat!
