The Marathon ClickTight has changed car seat installation as we know it. This convertible car seat features a new system that just uses a seat belt (not the typical latch system) and installs in under a minute. Especially great for families that need flexibility or for travel, this forward- and rear-facing car seat it the ultimate in safety, comfort, and usability.

    The best car seat ever! We even got 2! Super easy to install, has awesome accessories, sleek design (not too big). I love that it's convertible and my son is safe and snug in it. Apr 11, 2018

  • Love the idea of the click tight seat, but we're having a lot of trouble getting it to close sometimes, and it's very heavy! If you have to rearrange seats a lot, this is not a great choice. Jan 23, 2018
