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.

REGRET: 8 WANT: 128
  • I have used this and the Boulevard. You definitely notice the lack of SIP on this model but baby can see more in the car when rear facing. Safety is still great in comparison. Aug 07, 2019

    We have 4 types of seat: this, a Chicco Keyfit30, a Clek Fllo, and a Graco MySize65. This is the only car seat that can be installed tightly by one person and stays that way. Jul 30, 2019

  • My FAVORITE convertible car seat! I love knowing I’ve got a super secure fit every time. For convertibles and boosters, I’ll never use anything but ClickTight! Jul 28, 2019

    Hasn’t held up well at all, kid hates it, buy clek fllo instead! Jul 11, 2019

  • I bought this recently for my youngest who is still rear facing. It’s great! So easy to install and very comfortable for the babe. May 20, 2019

  • I liked this car seat but the circle thing to press down on it and turn it is very hard to press espically if you have fake nails... May 15, 2019

  • I really like the safety features of the seat, but I do not like that it doesn't have a cupholder for the toddler age. May 06, 2019

  • The installation is seriously so simple! It takes maybe one minute. Not only is it easy, but the car seat does not wobble and is totally secure. Easy to use and has great safety features! Apr 29, 2019

  • We absolutely love everything about this carseat. The installation is so easy and feels so solid. We love the steel frame and anti-rebound bar for added safety. My son seems comfy too! Apr 11, 2019

  • This is our backup carseat for dad's truck or grandma's car. I like how easy it is to install, and it's a little less bulky/heavy than our britax advocate clicktight, so it's more easily moved. Apr 03, 2019

  • I love this car seat!! So easy to loosen up and tighten. We travel a lot and my daughter sleeps very well in it. Mar 22, 2019

    We have used these seats from day one with our babies. Highly recommend. Easy to install. I have a great feeling knowing my kids are in these seats Mar 07, 2019

  • Perfect for our 2 year old daughter who has Down syndrome. She has low muscle tone so we love we can keep her rear facing longer and she is still super comfy. The extra cushions keep her safer. Feb 02, 2019

  • It is more difficult to install than other convertible car seats, but it is so much nicer than others I have used. It is supportive, easy to tighten and comfortable for my daughter. Jan 22, 2019

  • I Like that's it's easy to buckle my daughter in and take her out. It's easy to install. Like how it can adjust from baby to toddler. It has great safety ratings. Love the cow design on ours. Jan 13, 2019

  • I love the clicktight system, and it's our "move around" car seat because it's so easy to install. My biggest wish is that it had cupholders! The reviews on the attachable cup holder aren't great. Jan 09, 2019

  • So easy to install! The Click Tight installation is by far the simplest way to get a good install consistently. Seat is heavy, but not overly bulky, fits a variety of cars. Nov 13, 2018

  • Easy to install but hate this car seat. You have to press the buckle so hard it feels like I am crushing his private parts Oct 10, 2018

  • This car seat is easy to use and is continually voted one of the best car seats available. It's really well built and I feel that my child is extremely safe in this seat. Oct 04, 2018

  • 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

    • Mary L.
    • Chattanooga, Tennessee

    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

    We own two of these, they are great. Easy to install, comfortable both forward and rear facing for our daughter. I love the high safety ratings as well. Jun 13, 2018

  • Affordable seat that’s easy to trust others to use correctly! Love the solid install even grandparents can achieve. Jun 03, 2018

    • Andee C.
    • Detroit Area, Michigan

    This was our first purchase and the carseat we gave (grandma/caregiver) for daily travel - I feel very secure knowing she is driving him around in this safe seat! May 31, 2018

  • Easy to install, durable, but heavy! Would still buy again though! May 30, 2018

  • Easiest car seat to install ever!!! My baby just transitioned this month (11 months) to this and she loves it! No more battles to get into the car seat. We have one for every car now. Apr 23, 2018

  • 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

    • Ashton K.

    i love this car seat! Installation is a breeze! Apr 06, 2018

  • Great car seat easier to install in the car. Such a comfy car seat that my little guy always fell asleep in this. Feb 28, 2018

  • All three of our girls are in Britax car seats, including the Marathon. The biggest factor is their safety rating, but I ultimately loved how easy they are to install and secure. Feb 18, 2018
