Britax Boulevard ClickTight: Road Safety

One of the most important factors any parent will have to consider when purchasing a new car seat is road safety – which one is going to keep your child safe?

With the Britax Boulevard ClickTight Anti-Rebound Bar Convertible Car Seat, safety comes first.

This car seat provides safety and security for your child in frontal, side, rear, and rollover crashes, and has been tested by inhouse ProtectPlus procedures, which are in line with guidelines set out by The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS).

With the 5-point harness, the Britax Boulevard ClickTight Anti-Rebound Bar Convertible Car Seat is also FAA approved.

It is recommended by experts that you keep your child in a rear-facing position for as long as possible, so it’s great that the Britax Boulevard ClickTight allows you to do this until your child is 40 Ibs; meaning that you can keep your child facing until the age of around 4-5 years old (providing they’re under the 40 Ibs limit).

The Simply Safe Adjust Harness System allows you to adjust the headrest and harness in one motion; ensuring a proper (safe) fit.

Ensuring your child is safe and secure throughout the entire journey is every parent’s number one priority and with the Britax Boulevard ClickTight Convertible Car Seat, these features help you achieve your goal.

The ClickTight All-In-One Car Seat is extremely easy to install, cleaning and maintaining it is a dream and its pretty lightweight in comparison to some of its competitors.

All of these points make this car seat the ideal choice for busy parents and families on the move.

The 4-position recline helps ensure a secure installation, with prominent ‘click’ sounds along the way to give you the confidence you need to begin each journey and ClickTight ARB Car Seat’s push-button InRight LATCH provides an easy, one-second attachment (again with an audible ‘click’ for increased confidence).

With a 5-point harness and the integrated harness storage come as standard with the ClickTight Convertible Car Seat; helping you keep the harness stored away and safely secured.

As your little one grows, so does the Britax Boulevard all-in-one (hence the name), ensuring that your child remains comfortable throughout their early years and beyond.

As far as car seats go, the ClickTight ARB also offers a compact, trendy design, and genuine mobility and convenience.

If your child’s comfort is on the top of your priorities when selecting a car seat, the ClickTight ARB Car Seay is the ideal choice for you.

Britax Boulevard CLickTight: Value for Money

The first point to note here is that the Britax ClickTight ARB Convertible Car Seat is the more affordable option.

The ClickTight all-in-one Car Seat offers excellent value-for-money; taking your child from 5 lbs to 100 Ibs.

One thing is for certain – you will get years, and years worth of use out of the ClickTight ARB car seat and buying an all-in-one initially will more than likely save you money in the long-run.

One way of looking at the cost of the Britax Boulevard ClickTight Anti-Rebound Bar Convertible Car Seat is taking the cost and breaking it down over 8-10 years. That’ll give you a good indication of how far your money really is stretching with this long-lasting car seat.

Summary

It’s safety features, including 2 layers of side impact protection, the anti-rebound bar (ARB), the impact-absorbing base (and much more), get the thumbs up from us – this is an obvious choice for the safety-conscious parents amongst us.

Coupled with the Boulevard ClickTight ARB’s flexibility and long-lasting durability, comfort, and compact design, we feel that the more premium price tag is justified here; actually offering very good value-for-money.

With its all-in-one functionality, this convertible car seat will literally last you years – something that can’t be understated. You can kiss goodbye to having to splash out on a new car seat every couple of years, and the ClickTight ARB has you covered.
