Every once in a while, a baby gear company introduces something new that changes the game.

And Britax’s new ClickTight technology falls into that category.

Now, with just three simple steps, you can simultaneously tighten and lock the seat belt when you install the new Frontier 90 or Pinnacle 90 in your car without the frustration of putting your weight in the seat or actually getting into your car.

Seriously, it’s that easy. And you won’t lose all the safety features you love from Britax including their SafeCell Technology®, integrated steel bars and energy-absorbing Versa-Tether®.

“Once parents hear the ‘click,’ they’ll know their child’s seat is safely and securely installed,” says Curtis Strong, director of new product development.

It also eliminates the need to use your vehicle’s lower anchors to secure your car seat, which have weight limits that your child may exceed sooner than you think.

The LATCH system isn’t made for any child over 40lbs. I have found a great product to ensure the tightness of the actual seatbelt and neither of my daughter’s car seats budge in the car (we have a Frontier 85 for my oldest and a Britax Advocate for our youngest). Toys R Us has them, it’s called the Mighty Tite from Sunshine Kids. It’s the best $12 you’ll ever spend and works with any car seat.

using this car seat really is THAT easy. Getting a secure fit with the lap belt is a piece of cake! No more wrestling with the seat belt.

The Mighty Tite is not intended to be used with carseats other than the Sunshine Kids ones and will void the warranty on most seats.

I never heard of the mighty tite, so I just googled it out of curiosity. It has a bunch of reviews saying it is unsafe, and not properly tested for crashes! Yikes!

I hope this new system works! There seem to be so many care seats that are not installed properly.

Like Kate mentioned, The Mighty Tite should not be used with ANY carseat. Anything that does not come out of the box with the carseat is considered an add on, and is not safety tested with the seat. It can cause the seat the fail in an accident, and will void the warranty.
