Calling parents everywhere! I’m so excited to tell you all about the Britax Marathon ClickTight ARB car seat! It’s a total game changer!
BRITAX MARATHON CLICKTIGHT ARB INSTALL
As a momma of a two-year-old and a one-year-old, I have this undying nerve of making sure they have the best car seat on the market! I consider two VERY important things when choosing a car seat, Safty, and ease of install! And trust me when I say I have had my fair share of installing and reinstalling my kids’ car seats. When I experienced how easy the Britax Marathon ClickTight ARB was to install, and my little Avery was ready to switch from an infant seat to a convertible seat I was completely sold!
The seat is well padded, it looks and feels comfortable. And Avery looks comfortable while sitting in it. The shoulder straps are a breeze to adjust because they move up and down with the headrest for easy adjustment for growth (no rethreading). This seat comes equipped with an ANTI-REBOUND BAR made of steel to protect against rotation in the rear facing position in case of a crash. As well as 7 reclining positions and an indicator on the side to let you know if the recline is safe (there is 3 color indicators).
- When rear-facing, the indicator should either be in the light blue or dark blue position
- When forward-facing, the indicator should be in the green position.
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS CLICKTIGHT?
Clicktight refers to the dial on the front. You push in the little dimple and turn clockwise which simply opens the base. The base opens up for your seatbelt to be threaded through the designated slots as stated in the instruction manual. The best part, the instructions a very easy to follow!
3 STEP INSTAL
I simply threaded the seat belt through the designated slots, removed all of the slack from the seat belt, shut the base, and heard the click on the click tight. When you shut the base the click tight returns to the original position and you can hear it click back into place confirming it is secured!
CARSEAT ENTERTAINMENT HACK
Recently we have been limiting screen time to car rides. Now I know this won’t work for everyone’s family. But we purchase 2 Amazon fire 8 kids edition tablets and downloaded all educational apps. While I’m doing my daily run to the grocery store, and the post office, My kids are learning while I cant put all my energy into being their teacher. And for a limited time, you can save $50 when you buy 2 fire HD 8 kids edition tablets.
I store the tablets in the Britax car seat caddy, this makes it easy for the kids to reach their tablets, a snack and their cups because everyone knows if you put a removable cup holder on a car seat they will just rip them out and they will get lost! Bonus: the caddy is super easy to wipe down!
I would absolutely recommend this car seat to all parents everywhere! Whether this is your first kid or your 10th kid, This car seat is a game changer for all involved! I love this car seat for Avery so much I will be purchasing this seat for baby showers for years to come! You can purchase this car seat at all major retailers and Amazon
