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.

LOVE: 54 NEUTRAL: 14
REGRET: 6 WANT: 92
  • Great carseat! Extremely easy to install correctly! It's well made. One downside, it's hard to clean. If you ever need to take apart the cushions and reassembly it's a pain! Aug 23, 2018

  • Extremely well built and safe. Somewhat difficult to get installed (if the belt is too tight getting the seat to lift again is difficult). Seat traps heat!!!! Odd angle from the seat to upper. Aug 23, 2018

  • I love how easy it is to install. We have 2 of these and love them both. Aug 17, 2018

  • Easiest seat to install with seatbelt! Fits well in small cars even with its size. Super easy to use. Aug 16, 2018

    Hard to install but I love this carseat! The straps do not get twisted, its easy to clean and love how the buckle stays up right so you don't have to dig around for it. Wish it had attached cupholders Jul 15, 2018

  • Installs easily in my husbands truck. Only used rear facing option as my baby is 8 months but we can’t wait to flip it! Multi functionality is awesome! Jul 14, 2018

  • Incredibly easy to install and the seat does not budge, my daughter loves being in her seat and I love every aspect of this seat! Everything is easy to adjust and simple to move! Jul 05, 2018
