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.

    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
