Fits perfectly next to my other car seat and still room for a passenger.
November 29, 2016
I drive a 2010 Transit Connect. I had ordered a second Parkway SGL and had no idea that my middle seatbelt is much shorter than the side belts. In researching this problem, I learned that many backseat middle seat belts are not long enough to go around a carseat with a child. I had to return the Parkway SGL, but what to buy? The Frontier ClickTight Booster fit's perfectly next to the Parkway SGL and I still have room for a passenger. It's always hard to see the seat belt connection, but it's plainly visible, if your hand isn't in the way; meaning that the Frontier does not cover it.. The Parkway SGL was purchased to replace a Britax Marathon 70. He had not outgrown the Marathon 70 by weight, but with even a light jacket it was a struggle to connect the harness around a 5-year-old at its longest setting. With the Frontier ClickTight Booster I can easily move the seat from my vehicle into Grandpa's should he need to transport either child. If I don't need the space for a passenger, I can move the Frontier to the other side of the car and use the adult seatbelt. As it is now, I leave the two car seats next to each other. That way I can get into the back seat to make sure each child is securely buckled, rather than stand outside in cold or wet weather.
Pros1. Very sturdy.
2. Easy to move from one car to another.
3. I haven't tried the recline option to see if it will work with my vehicle. If it does, that is a nice feature.
Cons1. Very expensive.
2. Very heavy.
3. The only way I can connect the tether strap in my vehicle is if I have a D-Ring Connector Strap. One of these was provided with the Marathon 70. It was not included with the Frontier ClickTight. I believe that since it is an essential part of the installation, that it should have been included. I'm using the D-Ring Connector Strap from the Marathon 70, but I would like to sell that car seat and will need another one for the new Frontier ClickTight. I'm hoping that when I contact Britax they will send me one. For others, who don't have a prior D-Ring connector Strap in their possession, not having this strap will be a problem. Although the seat is extremely tight without it, all of the literature on the tether strap says that it is an important part of the installation.
Best Uses1. As a second seat. It is narrow enough at the seat that you can put it next to another car seat and still have room for a passenger if your vehicle is wide enough.
