Compare on 25 Aug , 2014


If you are interested in buying a Britax car seat recently you must have noticed that a new line of seats called Click Tight is on the way, so what are the differences between ClickTight and G4 series?

The new ClickTight models are going to be brand new in terms of installation and will come with many new features that you don’t see in previous models, namely,  the Britax Advocate G4, Boulevard G4, and Marathon G4 which are still great convertibles we recommend.

So why should you choose a ClickTight seat if the G4 seats are great?
That is a good question, to answer that let’s first understand what the ClickTight system is.

The Britax ClickTight is a new installation system that makes installing car seats very easy using the seat belt, it is even easier than using the LATCH. According to Britax, the new ClickTight Installation system makes installation of the car seat correctly with the seat belt incredibly simple.

We see more changes with the Britax Advocate ClickTight, especially about the height limits. The harness height limit ,has been increased by two inches from 17.5″ to 19.5″, the seated shoulder height raised to 18.6″ and the overall height limit is now 54 inches. The weight limits remained unchanged like Marathon but the height limit change will increase the time that children can use the seat before moving to a booster seat.

Note that you can also install the new ClickTight models with the LATCH like G4 convertible car seats but Britax will encourage using the seat belt with their new car seats.
