Britax’s ClickTight car seat installation system is one of the most innovative on the market. Not only does it makes the seat a breeze to install, but ask anybody who owns one (myself included) ⏤ once installed, they don’t budge at all. Not even a wiggle. It’s remarkable how tight they lock in. The only issue with many of Britax’s ClickTight seats is that they don’t come cheap. Which is why today’s Amazon sale is noteworthy ⏤ the company’s knocked up to $128 off the list price of select Marathon Convertible seats.
The highly touted Marathon ⏤ which boasts a 4.5-star rating on 850 reviews on Amazon ⏤ is selling for as little as $198 (down from $220) and as much as $212, slashed from $340. In addition to an impact-stabilizing steel frame and rock-solid build (they are not light, by the way), the seats convert from a rear-facing position (5-40 lbs.) to a forward-facing (20-65 lbs.), feature 12 recline positions, and offer touch-of-a-button height adjustment.
In addition to the Marathon, Britax is also taking up to half off two other non-ClickTight models: the B-Safe 35 Infant Seat and the Boulevard G4.1 Convertible. The 10-pound B-Safe is down to $116 from a list price of $209, uses the company’s SafeCenter LATCH Installation, and includes the click-in base for easy in and out. The Boulevard, on the other hand, is the least expensive seat in the mix at but includes all the same SafeCell side impact protection, energy-absorbing headrest, and the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator to let you know it’s properly tightened. Normally $279, it’s on sale today for $190.
