Britax Frontier Clicktight Booster Car Seat – Keeping Children Safe on the Roads
Traveling days are approaching between spring break and then summer vacations. Life can change drastically in a blink of an eye while on the road with one simple overcorrection, a glance down at a phone, a drunk or just careless driver in your path, or even an unexpected flat tire happening at a high speed. Some accidents could be prevented while others are truly that…. an accident. The Britax Frontier Clicktight Booster Car Seat with the Cool Flow Feature is one of the best car seats on the market to protect your child in the event of an accident!
Staying off the roads completely isn’t really an option (although late night travels or traveling on “party holidays” such as the 4th of July can be limited). So, aside from staying focused on your own driving, staying off your phone, and keeping an eye out for other drivers, there is not a lot you can do to prevent an accident. You CAN, however, take precautions when it comes to protecting yourself and your little ones. That precaution is a seatbelt! Adults need to be an example to their children when it comes to buckling up. Next, is making sure that your child is in the proper seat belt restraint. Lastly, would be making sure that the car seat/booster seat chosen is a quality car seat that will do its job of protecting your child if an accident were to occur.
The risk of death as a result of an accident decreases 71% in infants (under the age of one), who are properly restrained in an infant (rear facing). Death is decreased by 54% for children ages one to four years old and 45% of children ages four to eight when placed in the proper car seat and restraint versus sitting in a seat with just a standard seat belt used. Restraint, in general, is not as important as the actual type of restraint used depending on the age, size, and weight of the child. Just because you have a four-year-old, does not mean they are capable of safely sitting in a booster.
My daughter is almost five but a small five-year-old. Due to her height and weight, she still requires a full five point harness versus just a booster with a seatbelt. She may very well be in a five point harness until she is six.
About the Britax Frontier Clicktight
Protect your child in the event of an accident with the energy-absorbing shell and foam lined headrest. In the event of an accident, the base will compress which reduces the force of the impact on your child.
The ClickTight system gives you an easy and safe way to install the car seat without depending solely on the car seat strap! The ClickTight system locks the buckle in place making it more secure. Above shows how the car seat would attach via the anchors.
The adjustable harness keeps you from having to re-thread the harness as they grow. Once your child is old enough for a regular booster seat with just using a regular seat belt, the seat quickly transitions from a harnessed seat to a booster car seat. My daughter is not there yet but I do love that when she does reach the booster level, the booster seat itself is anchored so securely with the ClickTight feature.

About the Cool Flow Feature
The Cool Flow Collection is designed for safety, comfort, and mobility. Designed with a ventilated mesh fabric that provides stylish safety and gives your child a cool, comfortable ride. This cool new collection provides Britax levels of safety for every age and stage.
We are in LOVE with this booster car seat!! My daughter can buckle and unbuckle herself (she is almost five) but it would not be easy for a smaller child to unbuckle themselves.
My daughter loves having cup holders available for her cup. I love that too because she could never reach the cup holder in the van which resulted in several spills in the past. The padding of the seat is incredible. We are very thankful for that as we are preparing for a “long road” as my daughter calls it (AKA a long trip).
The Britax Frontier ClickTight with the Cool Flow feature is the most secure car seat I have ever personally used. The ClickTight feature makes the seat feel like it is part of the vehicle not an accessory of the vehicle. I can not wiggle the seat in the least bit!
I am very pleased with the Frontier ClickTight Cool Flow Booster Car Seat! Are your children safe in their car seat? I would highly recommend the Frontier ClickTight for superior safety! Choose between using the car seat buckle secured by the Click Tight feature or using the anchors to secure the car seat (depending on the weight of your child).
We have now used this car seat to drive approximately 2000 miles. My daughter loves it just the same as she did when she first tried it out! Our air conditioner went out in our van on the way down to Florida. It got close to 80 degrees several days. The Cool Flow Feature worked great! We are even bigger fans of the Britax Frontier ClickTight Cool Flow Booster!
