With its IIHS “Best Bet” rating and years of rave reviews, the Britax Frontier ClickTight Harnessed Booster Seat should be high on your list when purchasing a car seat for a little one who has outgrown their regular car seat but is not big enough for a belt-positioning system (the Frontier is a harnessed booster seat). It has tremendous safety features that Britax is known for, including two layers of SafeCell side-impact protection, a unique design developed by Britax that provides advanced layers of protection to keep your child safe in the event of an accident.
One of the best features of the Britax Frontier is that it comes with Britax’s patented ClickTight Installation System. This means that you can relax when a friend or family member needs to move the car seat to their car, or if you swap the seat yourself between several cars. Britax has simplified the installation process by inventing a belt-latching system (meaning that it works in any car with seat belts, not dependent upon the LATCH system that’s found on newer cars). What you’re left with is peace-of-mind that your car seat is installed correctly, and it’s all accomplished without having to wrestle down the car seat into a secure spot. Additionally, the Frontier has a honeycomb-style, impact-absorbing base and an integrated steel frame designed to deliver ultimate safety. When proper installation determines the majority of the safety features of your car seat, Britax makes it very easy to do it right.
Having a safe, secure car seat is a parent’s wish come true, but Britax didn’t stop there. The Frontier has multiple recline positions and a nine-position quick-adjust harness, so it easily adapts to fit your growing child with no re-threading of the car seat required. Integrated cup holders make for an easy trip home after soccer practice, and it’s incredibly simple to transition from harness to booster.
Your new Britax Frontier ClickTight comes in a variety of colors and styles, including the Vibe, Cowmooflage, Baxter, Vector, Trek, and Tuxedo. You may also choose the Nanotex, which is a moisture-, odor, and stain-resistant fabric that is ideal for parents. It’s as comfortable as ever, but without the challenge of staining and soiling. You may also want to consider the Cool Flow Teal or Cool Flow Gray, both of which are perfect for warmer climates (or colder climates with parents who enjoy running the heat on high).
The Britax Frontier ClickTight is designed for toddlers from 2 years of age and 20 to 90 pounds in harness mode and 40 to 125 pounds in booster mode. You can further equip the seat with additional accessories from Britax, making it the perfect fit for your child’s specific needs.
The Britax Frontier is drenched in safety, which is something we love. Having a booster seat operate in such a versatile way--changing to a non-harness booster--is incredibly convenient and extends the life of the car seat. The materials and fabrics used to make the Frontier are premium and comfortable, yet durable. For the Nanotex option, you can’t find better protection from stains, moisture, and smells. When your child is ready for the last car seat they’ll ever need, the Frontier is a serious car seat at a price notably lower than its value.
