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 this Car Seat

By AlisonVan

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

I bought this car seat about 3 weeks ago for my 1 year old. It is sturdy and sleek in design. I love the clicktight feature! I have a Toyota corolla and I expected the fit to be snug. Surprisingly, there is more room than I imagined there would be. The straps are easy to use and operate. I did have to adjust the buckle on the bottom and after that adjustment, everything has been fabulous. I plan on buying another one for my husband's car!

Hate Installing

By Slgrimmer

from Lake Havasu City, AZ, United States

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

I have had this car seat for 11 month now and I hate it! It is so hard to install with the latch system. I have a very difficult time turning the clicktight button to get the seat to open up. We struggle with it every time. It's very hard to turn, and then it's also hard to get it to latch again once you are done installing. Right now I have to wait for my husband to get off work to see if he can turn it so I can wash the pads after a blow out. (All pads are also hand wash and air dry so it's not a fast or easy process either) The hooks for the latch system are also very basic. The regular marathon which has hooks with a release button are so much easier to use. Yes this car seat keeps my daughter safe. Yes I have read all the information on how to correctly install it. She is safe when in the carseat. But man do I dread having to ever take it out of the car ( It is also very heavy) I am really considering trying to sell it and just getting a regular Marathon like her cousins.

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

    Great company! I previously gave this seat a one star review because I had difficulty installing and removing the seat. I was contacted by customer service and sent a new seat from Britax. The new seat Was easy to install. Only reason I am giving 4 star is because The seat , itself is still pretty heavy but I feel comfortable putting my two and a half year old in the seat. if I could remove my one star review, I would. Thank you Britax. You made me a happy customer.
