I spent a considerable amount of time researching car seats for my second child. We had purchased a Britax years ago for our older child, and loved the quality and safety. But there were so many new options on the market when we had our son, and that I entertained the idea of looking at other brands. When I saw it click tight model, I got very excited. Car seats are expensive, especially good ones like Britax! my husband and I did not want to sacrifice quality and safety for the sake of being able to afford two car seats, one for each car. The click tight is a heavy car seat, but the ease with which I installed and uninstalled it between our cars is worth every penny. I also like that the in-laws and grandparents can easily install it to and it isn't rocket science. There is a ton of padding on this thing, so far my son seems to be happy with it. my only concern is going to be in the summertime, I hope the padding doesn't make the seat too hot to sit in! Overall, we are very pleased with the car seat.

I really wanted to love this car seat but I honestly regret buying it. My biggest complaint is that they used very cheap components in the lower latch connector hooks, lower connector adjuster release button and finally the recline adjustment handle. These three pieces are not made well and make installation of the car seat very difficult. I know that they recommend using a seat belt for connection but the center seatbelt in my 2012 Honda pilot comes from the ceiling so it is better to use the latch connection points. The cheapness of these parts made it so I had to get help from my husband to get the car seat installed and then uninstalled. At around 120lbs I was not strong enough and did not weigh enough to get the click tight to close properly when installed rear facing. When I wanted to move the seat to another car I was not strong enough to undo the click tight. I again needed my husband to do it. I compete in triathlons so I should be strong enough to install a car seat. How safe is a car seat that has to be installed by heavy strong man? What if I need to move it to another car without the help of a guy? So other things I wish I would have know before buying this seat. I can not overemphasizes the cheapness of the lower latch hooks, lower adjust release button and lean angle handle. The hooks are very hard to connect and unconnect. If the car seat is installed rear facing it is impossible to adjust the lean angle without redoing the latches again. However, the lean angle changes once its installed due to the force towards the latch area. Finally, I think that the manual or the britax website needed to be more specific on the location of the model number (its under the fabric by the child's left leg). I should have spent half the amount of money and gotten a different seat. Very disappointed.

Love my clicktight

Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat (Vibe):

Love this car seat. It is so easy to install. It is heavy but it is reinforced with steel bars so I'd take the weight for safety. Very comfy my daughter loves it.

Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat (Vibe):

This car seat took me forever to install. I needed my husband's help to get it installed properly. The straps will not loosen. I am going to probably return it for a different car seat.

    I love the click tight system to secure the seat, it really makes it easy for a snug fit. The adjustment for different heights is so simple.

    Very disappointed...

    By Erinhuey3

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat (Vibe):

    I am a FTM and I did a lot of research before buying a convertible car seat for our little girl. Every review was great for this car seat, safest, most comfortable, and easy to use. So I chose this car seat for my car and my husband chose the Recaro convertible car seat for his car. I definitely chose wrong. This car seat is very difficult to use, my kiddo is not comfortable and it is very obnoxious to use. My 2 year old is big for her age but the car seat is meant to be used for kids up to 50 lbs, when my little girl was 24lbs she honestly didn't fit in this car seat. The straps do not loosen at all and constantly get stuck behind the car seat. The recaro my husband got it so easy to use and my daughter actually says that she would rather ride in daddy's car. I was hoping for my daughter to be in this car seat for a very long time since it is up to 50lbs but I am already looking into another car seat because I am so unhappy with this product.

    Pain in the butt!

    By Edlsgal

    from Erie, CO

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat (Vibe):

    I've had my ClickTight for a year now an I am not happy with it. The thing is a tank. You cannot remove it with a child in it so you always have to wake up a sleeping child. It is a pain to install. If you don't have the tension of the seatbelt just right you can't close it or its too loose. You have to move it to adjust the incline so it is a guessing game based on the slope of the seat. The straps don't loosen very much so it can be irritating trying to get the child in and out while holding a toy. The padding comes off the plastic sides if you lean on it and it is a pain to reattach it.
