Sweat dripping down your brow, crushed and pinched fingers, and indistinguishable shouts of frustration are pretty much the three ways I would typically describe the process of installing a car seat. That is before our family got the Britax Pinnacle 90.

(Images are for review purposes only, the seat was not fully installed and we did not drive the vehicle in the pictured modes.)

I have been praying for a car seat like this. One that I don’t turn down carpooling so I don’t have to take the car seat out or leave a little dirtier than I like because of the hassle that installation is, not to mention the worry that when we reinstall the seat it may not be as tight or secure as it was before we took it out of the minivan.

See, Pinnacle 90 car seat has a cool feature called the ClickTight Installation System. Basically, no matter what “mode” the car seat is in, you can easily install and uninstall the car seat without having to deal with the difficulty of threading the seatbelt or figuring out how to use the Latch System.

When it comes to safety the ClickTight Installation System does one better. Before we would try our hardest to get the tightest fit for the car seats with as little wiggle room as possible, (according to safety standards), but never quite knowing if we had the seat quite right. Britax has taken out all the guesswork with this system so each time you install your car seat, no matter what vehicle you put your child in, you know the installation is safe and exact each time.

Installation in three easy steps:

Step 1
Simply squeeze using thumb and finger, where indicated, to reveal the ClickTight Technology. What makes BRITAX ClickTight Technology so unique is that the belt path has been exposed and is right in front of you. This eliminates the “blind reach” around the seat into a potentially small belt path. It also means that you don’t have to figure out how to route your vehicle seat belt through the seat (i.e. long belt paths versus short belt paths, etc.).

Step 2

Thread the seatbelt over the armrest and under the seat opening. Connect the seat belt and remove slack.

Step 3

Then push it closed. The click tells you you’ve installed the seat securely.

See it in action:

I am a huge fan of Britax as a company and have been even before I began working with them on reviews and projects. My family used Britax products for several years and believe Britax is a quality brand.

I received a sample product for review purposes for this post . All opinions and thoughts in this post are my own honest words. Your opinions may vary.

Announcing: Britax G3 Convertible Car Seat Line {Giveaway – CLOSED}

When other parents ask me my advice on car seats, I always tell them how much I love the Britax brand the best. To me, Britax is the number one brand for it’s safety, comfortability and durability.

There are many different factors parents have to keep in mind as they purchase a new car seat for their child:

  • Safety – hopefully being number one
  • Size – this is very important if you have a smaller vehicle especially
  • Design – may be gender based, style based, or to match your own vehicle
  • Price – as a parent having a price range in mind as you shop can hel

Safety – Recently Britax launched a new car seat line, their G3 Convertible Car Seat series. All five Britax G3 Convertible car seat models provide safety features that are visible and clearly labeled. and offer 360 degrees of protection.

Look for the new BRITAX HUGS™ with SafeCell Technology®, side impact protection, base with SafeCell Technology®, energy absorbing Versa-Tether®, and integrated steel bars. The ADVOCATE® 70- G3, PAVILION® 70-G3 and BOULEVARD® 70-G3 feature new BRITAX HUGS™ Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology®. These chest pads are affixed to the back of the car seat shell to ensure that they are properly positioned on the buckled child. SafeCell padding on the chest pads, identified by a honeycomb design, is engineered to compress to manage energy and create best-in-class resistance to the forward movement of a child.

All of the newly updated BRITAX convertible car seats continue to offer revolutionary safety features that are easy to see. For instance, all seats have a rigid shell with deep side walls that are lined with energy-absorbing foam to provide side impact protection. The ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3 and BOULEVARD 70-G3 offer a second layer of protection with energy-absorbing foam in the True Side Impact Protection head restraint that keeps the head, neck and spine aligned. Finally, the ADVOCATE 70-G3 includes Side Impact Cushion Technology®, a third layer of protection, with black energy-absorbing cushions on the child seat’s exterior to reduce side impact energy by diverting 45 percent of the crash forces away from the seated child.

These cushions also provide extra protection for the adjacent passenger. Additional visible features can be found on all updated BRITAX convertible car seats. Check inside the open-style base for honeycomb-shaped SafeCell Technology®, designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat. Look on the outside of the seat for integrated steel bars that strengthen the seat’s connection to the vehicle and

Also, all the enhanced models have new labeling to identify BRITAX’s Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether. The patented 2-point top tether with staged-release webbing anchors the top of the car seat to the vehicle and slows forward movement, reducing crash forces. These features, along with the side impact technologies, provide 360-degree protection for the child occupant.

In addition to the innovative safety features, BRITAX has designed a new convenience feature. The EZ-Buckle System keeps the buckle in a convenient, easy-to- reach forward position, making boarding a child faster and simpler. It can be found on the ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3 and BOULEVARD 70-G3 as well as the BRITAX ADVOCATE 70-G3, PAVILION 70-G3, BOULEVARD 70-G3 and MARATHON 70-G3 convertible car seats can be used rear facing up to 40 pounds and forward facing up to 70 pounds.

Size & Design – Britax car seats come in various sizes and weight limits to fit both your child and your vehicle. There are honestly so many styles that browsing through them will be half the fun of the purchase. I also enjoy that Britax, unlike a fair amount of car seat companies, does offer a wide selection of car seat designs. Having two girls I really love the Azalea and Sophia styles.

Price – Last on our list, price. Typically, Britax car seats are known for being on the higher end of the price scale. I do want you to consider the above features, safety, comfortability for your child’s ride (there really is a big difference between other brands, we’ve experienced this ourselves), and also durability. Seeing how well the Britax brand “wears” I can tell that the materials are high quality and we will get our money’s worth with these seats.

Exciting enough, the newly enhanced G3 line is now available at the same price point as their previous models.

BRITAX ADVOCATE 70-G3 (MSRP: $379.99)

PAVILION 70-G3 (MSRP: $339.99)

BOULEVARD 70-G3 (MSRP: $319.99),

MARATHON 70-G3 (MSRP: $289.99)

ROUNDABOUT 55 (MSRP: $199.99).
