The Advocate ClickTight ARB includes the ClickTight Installation System for the safest and easiest installation in every car, every time. This seat also offers 3 layers of side impact protection, an impact-absorbing base, steel frame, and an anti-rebound bar for maximum safety.
  • The Anti-Rebound Bar (ARB) minimizes forces associated with crashes by stabilizing the car seat when installed rear-facing.
  • Rest assured your child’s harness is within range of proper tightness thanks to the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator.
  • Premium padding and fabrics wrap your child in comfort.
Superior Protection
  • 3 layers of side protection formed by a deep energy-absorbing shell, quick-adjust head protection and side cushions, absorb energy and shield your child from the most severe type of collision.
  • Impact-absorbing base compresses to reduce the rough force of a collision.
  • Impact-stabilizing steel frame offers superior strength where you need it most: at the connection point to the vehicle.
  • V-shaped tether minimizes seat rotation with a unique two-strap design.
  • Britax-patented staged-release stitches slow the seat’s forward movement during a crash.
  • Impact-absorbing harness pads absorb energy and reduce your child’s forward movement during an impact.
  • Proudly engineered, tested and made in the USA with global components for top safety and quality.
  • Anti-Rebound Bar limits movement of the car seat during a rear or front-end collision.

We have loved this seat! It is so easy to set up and switch from one vehicle to the next with the click tight system. We used it backwards facing until my son was 3, and now still use it forward facing as well. My only complaint is that the rebound bar does not stay attached well.
  • Use rear or forward facing
  • Easy install
  • Rebound bar easily slips out

My daughter has been using this car seat for over 1.5 years loves it. She is still rear facing at 3 years old and has quite a bit longer before she will need to be turned around. I love the ease of installation, cool flow material, and sturdy build. This seat is quite bulky, but well build and seems very safe. This is the only place my daughter will nap so it has also helped me keep my sanity. Well worth the money for that alone!

Overall, I feel this is the perfect convertible car seat and will continue to recommend it to everyone!

I needed a new car seat for my 9 month old who outgrew his infant seat. He's in the 99th percentile so I needed a seat with a tall height limit (since they typically outgrow height vs weight first). I knew I wanted him rear facing in the center position (no LATCH) for as long as possible. I chose this seat based on the 49" rear facing height limit and 40lb rear-facing weight limit, which should last us a long time. Britax seems to have a good safety reputation and I like that the seats are made in the US.

I purchased a model with the anti rebound bar and found that it installed easily. The padding seems very comfortable, though the crotch strap seems very short. We'll have to wait to see if that causes us any problems. The best part though is how easily this installs with the seatbelt. I was able to do it alone, it didn't require tugging and pulling while sitting on the seat, and after clicking down the ClickTight the seat barely budged a centimeter! I was seriously amazed. The seat seems solid and comfortable. I highly recommend!

We moved from the Nuna Pipa lite to the advocate with ARB when Baby started to outgrow the pipa. We love how the fabric (cool flow) seems to keep her cool, but I'm not a big fan of how it catches crumbs (I don't recommend eating in the car seat at all). At 12mo she was 20# and 26inches - right around the 50 percentile for both. She has ample room to grow in the advocate, and also has the ability to stretch her arms and legs when buckled in proper (I've had it inspected by a CPST). However, the seat just doesn't seem that compact to me. I drive a corolla (I'm 5'3") and have about 2" between my seat and the britax. Husband (5'9") drives a civic and we struggle to install this seat in his car at all. Perhaps it's because we have the ARB, but the ARB is one of the reasons I chose this seat, so whoever sits in his passenger seat nearly has their knees to their chest. We have installed it ok in the Civic w/o the ARB, but then that defeats the purpose of getting the bar altogether. We keep the seat in my car (the corolla), and are still looking for a seat for his car. Also, I don't like that I can't adjust the recline when the seat is installed. The recline mechanism is at the foot of the seat, and when installed is flush with the seat of the car. As such, to adjust the recline, I have to remove baby, uninstall seat, then adjust recline, then reinstall seat, and reinsert baby. It's just a lot of work when trying to get the right position - I wish the recline mechanism was on the side as in the Rava. I've also noticed that despite the "click" when tightening the harness, there's still a bit of fabric left that needs tightening. I find myself checking the tightness of her harness at every ride, and find myself no longer relying on the "click" when buckling her in. Essentially negating another 'safety feature' this seat comes with; not that one shouldn't double check anyways, but a feature of this seat is to 'click' when the harness is tight enough. Not to mention that I'm concerned other caretakers will hear the click, and not check her harness, only to have it be way too loose - thus making what is supposed to be a safety-feature a 'danger-feature'.

I do recommend this seat despite my dislikes. I did A LOT of researching before purchasing this seat (I was contemplating the Rava, after seeing it in store, settled on the Britax), and feel like it has the most safety features for the price. The ARB, impact absorbing pads on the harness, cool-flow fabric, and ease of install all seem to provide the best safety features of the available seats for the US.
  • Longevity; rear face to 40#
  • The cool-flow fabric has been great for Texas heat
  • Click-tight install is beyond simple
  • Ample room inside the seat
  • Impact absorbing pads on the harness
  • Non-rethread harness
  • Multiple positions for crotch buckle
  • ARB is easy to install/uninstall
  • The side of the seat acts as a buckle holder (easy to insert baby) - no digging harness out from under baby
  • Cool-Flow fabric catches ALL the crubs
  • I wish the recline mechanism was on the side
  • Harness tightening mechanism clicks when harness is still loose
  • Not very compact front-to-back with ARB installed
  • No cupholder - can purchase one as an accessory (for the price, it should just come with the seat)

We had the Britax Advocate ARB in the Kate pattern for my 18-month-old daughter already... so when we found out we were expecting our second child it was a no brainer to immediately buy another Advocate ARB! I thought the cool flow option was a great feature so we opted for that for his seat this time & really love it! I cant say enough good things about Britax, their customer service is top notch & the Clicktight Technology makes installation so easy its unbelievable!
  • 3 layers of side impact protection
  • clicktight tech makes it SO EASY to install
  • tiny crumbs do get trapped in the cool flow mesh but honestly they do in my daughters seat which is not mesh and they vacuum out super easily in both.

We have had our seat for 4 years. It has served us well and looks great... once I wash all the kid grime off ;). If you wash the covers gently and mostly air dry them they will last and look great. Only now on year four am I starting to notice the fabric showing some wear where my son slides across the arm rests. We are so satisfied that we are getting another for my daughter.
Yes the seat is heavy and so it makes transferring it not super easy. However it's heavy for a reason!! Safety!!! I don't mind the workout because I know my kids are safe in those seats!

High Safety Reviews & Straightforward Installation
By Sonia
from Arkansas
on March 27, 2019
Verified Buyer
I did a lot of research on carseats when my twins outgrew their infant carriers. Consumer Reports and several other review sites recommended this Britax Advocate model. I've had it installed for a couple of weeks and so far we love them. The installation was pretty straight forward. They are much easier to get my babykins in and out of. The Clicktight harness is simple to use, and I love that it lets me know when I've got it snug enough.

The seats have several different recline levels, my twins are enjoying being more upright than they were before. I also purchased separately the Britax seat liner. It's waterproof and is supposed to help make cleaning up the car seat easier if there is a diaper or food spill situation.

I installed this rear-facing in captain chairs on a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and they fit on the seats well, with room to spare between the top of the headrest and the front row driver and passenger seats.

My brother-in-law is Nevada Highway Patrol and only reccomends Britax, so go with Britax! Myself and both sisters with their children have only used Britax Car Seats from convertible through booster for the last 15 years! They are solid, have a metal frame, and can withstand an impact. After being in an accident myself with my 6 month old twins, I wouldn't want them in anything else!

We loved this car seat a lot. The only con seemed to be that it was wide, so if you needed multiples across the back seat, it might not work.

The 3 star rating is because my son outgrew both the rear and forward facing hight by the time he was 16 months old.

If we hadn't liked it so much before he outgrew it, the short amount of time it was appropriate would have warranted a 1 or 2 star rating. Neither my husband or are are particularly tall, and when we bought this seat my son was below the 50th percentile for weight.

I love the car seat! My child was getting overheated in her Britax B-Safe car seat. So, I was glad to see the cool flow option when we upgraded to the convertible car seat. She seems much happier now. And, I feel like we can't go wrong with a Britax since they are always at the top of the safety ratings. While these are expensive car seats, it's a lot cheaper and more practical than buying a tank for us to drive around in. :)
  • Love the click tight option. It really makes it easier to put them in the car vs other car seats. And, then you know it's been installed properly. Love the peace of mind that this car seat provides.
  • The bar was a little confusing for us at first to get installed correctly, but only took an extra 10 minutes to figure out.

We are about to move up to the next stage, and thus writing to thank the designers and makers of Britax Advocate for saving my daughter's life. Throughout the car seat's almost 5 years of service with us, it had been in 2 accidents, one of which was rather severe and the mini-van was totaled. My daughter has been saved, both time, thanks largely to the excellent design of the car seat. Buying this car seat is among the best investments we have done. Thank you.

Safe and easy to install car seat
By Andreas
from San Jose
on September 7, 2018
Verified Buyer
It looks in the first place expensive, but considering the high safety and long life span of the product it's a good investment.
The safety comes with a big price in space and weight. You may check it first if your car is small, especially in rear facing reclined position.
For this size and weight it's still very easy to install and operate, only the handle for the reclining is a little bit difficult to reach (we using it in a Honda Civic and it's just fits a little bit tight).
  • + one of the safest car seats on the market, high sight impact absorption
  • + ease of use (easy installation and adjustment)
  • + long life time (fit infants, and toddlers up to 65 pounds)
  • + approved for air plane
Best Uses
  • stationary use from middle class car upwards
  • - heavy and difficult to move (for use at air plane)
  • - not suitable for small cars in rear facing and reclined position
  • - expensive extras (cup holder i.e.)
Design Needs Improvement
By KaeKee

We are big on car seat safety. I did hours upon hours of research before purchasing the Britax Clicktight Advocate. We have 3 kids so we purchased 3 of the same seats for them. The seats are super easy to install! East to adjust the headrest height as they grow. However I feel that the design needs some improvement. A big thing being that the cover does not stay on around the edges. My 3 and 4 year olds climb in and out of their seats on their own- then I strap them.
The cover is always popping off around the edges at the top of the seat/headrest. On my 4 year old's seat the foam on the headrest has broken apart from the headrest. We have had these seats for about 15 months! For the money spent on each seat I don't feel that they should be breaking and coming apart from every day wear and tear so soon. Not impressed.

We purchased this seat Oct 2015 when our girl was 7 months old. She's still rear facing at 3 years 3 months old, and should be able to continue rear facing for a while as she is around 35 lbs. This seat is easy to install, easy to clean, and overall has been a fantastic seat. We are about to purchase seat #2 for baby #2, and plan on purchasing the same seat. The only complaint we would have is after almost 3 years, it no longer "clicks", but at this point, we feel pretty confident that we are tightening the belts as needed for safety.

We've had this carseat since our son was 6 months old and he's 2 now and we still have him rear facing. He still fits perfectly and he's 28lbs, 36 inches, and shoulder height is 14in. He's very comfortable and doesn't mind sitting in it. The sturdy construction and heavyweight definitely reflects the strong and safe design and I don't have to worry at all knowing my son is in the safest car seat. The anti roll bar is an extra piece of mind. I definitely recommend this car seat specifically.

I am so glad we invested in the Britax Advocate. Although we never plan for a crash my husband and I wanted to take every measure to protect our son. This is why we decided on the Advocate which offers extra side impact protection. Yesterday my son and I were T-boned by a distracted driver, taking a direct hit to the door right next to my son and his car seat. Other than being scared by the incident my son was unharmed, and we owe this to oru Britax.

We bought four total (two sets for each of our vehicles). One set is rear facing with the anti-rebound bar (for our 2 year old) and one set is forward facing (for our 5 year old). Couldn't ask for an easier setup- including the rebound bar (not sure why others are saying it's complicated), adjustments are conveniently done and strapping them in is simple too. We love, love, love these car seats. Still have a while until the oldest outgrows his, but when he does we will certainly replace it with a Britax booster.

I bought this months ago. My son is rear facing at 15 months old. We were just T-Boned on his car seat side by somebody who ran a red light going 55 mph. I thought the worst. When I woke up to look back, he was completely ok. The door was jammed. The airbags went off. And the car seat didn't move. It's a miracle and I owe it all to Britax. The police even said they have never seen anything like it and that whoever installed it did it perfectly (Thanks husband). I must say, the rebound bar was not attached. I found it too difficult to install. But I'm buying this exact car seat again b/c of what it did for my son. THANK YOU BRITAX!!!!!

Anti-Rebound Bar doesn't work
By silverthecat

on April 28, 2017
We had this product for 2 months. We tried so many times with tutorial video to set anti-rebound bar but it fits so loose that our 1 and a half year old can practically pull it off. We can't imagine how safe it is so we haven't used it at all. The dial to open the seat to set it to car is so hard I can't do without my husband's assistance. Our son seems comfortable in it so we kept it but the weight and the difficulty of the use made the review 1 star.

By CH303

I recently bought this car seat and I must say that I feel let down, especially considering how much I paid. It is a heavy and bulky car seat. I have a Dodge Journey and It takes up quite a bit of room in the center seat. Any one else sitting next to it has to be fairly thin to fit comfortably. I had repeated issues with the click tight feature as once you buckle the seat in, you have to leave a bit of slack in order for the seat to click in, then you can't pull the strap to further tighten. I tried for over 30 minutes to get the slack just right so that it would both click down and the seat would not slide around. It was useless. I ended up using the included tethers and while those were easier to install, the issue, once again, with the click tight mechanism is that you have to leave a little slack for the seat to click down. Overall it's still not as tight as I would like but it's much better than using the lap belt to install. The other issue I have with this is that when you install it forward facing, you cannot adjust the angle of the seat- say, if your child falls asleep and you want them to lean back a bit. The car seats my nephews used allowed for one hand seat adjustment while it was buckled with no problem. With this seat, once you set the angle, it's what you get unless you undo the straps. I tried putting it slightly angled back in case my daughter falls asleep, and then strapped it down again and it just does not sit firmly on the vehicle as I would like. There is a gap behind the seat, between the car seat base and the vehicle seat and that causes the seat to lift at the base, closest to the vehicle seat. Other than these things, my daughter is comfortable in the car seat and it's pretty as well. I assume it's safe though I have it in the back of my mind because of the issue with tightening down the seat. If I would have read a review like this prior to purchasing, I definitely would have chosen something different.

This car seat is the easiest I have ever used. I had to replace the cumbersome car seat of my oldest grandchild and buy a second one so I went with these. I wish every car seat was this safe, easy to install and comfortable - according to my grandson.

Instructions too confusing
By Grandma 4.

Bought this product for my 3 year old Granddaughter. I looked at the safety ratings. However, my husband & I could not figure out how to install this car seat. It took 4 State Certified Police Officers checking a web site to figure out the installation of this car seat. Directions are not User Friendly. Needs much better instructions not only for installation but also for adjustments for different size children.

Keep my baby safe in an accident

We were rear-ended at 50mph from a minivan while we were stopped. My 10month old was kept extremely safe and secure. I am so thankful we splurged on this model. We are replacing the accident car seat with the exact same model. I will always continue to buy Britax. Thank you to the talented engineers and safety teams. You saved my babies life and I will be forever grateful.
