Product Description

The BRITAX ADVOCATE® convertible car seat is designed for children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 to 65 pounds. The ADVOCATE achieves revolutionary head safety through the use of BRITAX SafeCell Technology® in the base and HUGS™ chest pads, integrated steel bars, and energy absorbing Versa-Tether® that work together to minimize head excursion and reduce the risk of head injury during a frontal impact. The ADVOCATE also incorporates energy-managing Side Impact Cushion Technology, reducing incoming side impact crash energy by 45 percent by diverting crash forces away from the child. It is equipped with BRITAX True Side Impact Protection® and a Click & Safe® Snug Harness Indicator to aid in proper harness snugness. Additional features include a no-rethread and quick-adjust five-point harness, multiple buckle and recline adjustments, and an easy-remove cover that also allows access to belt paths from the front of the seat. A body pillow is provided for extra comfort and infant positioning.

Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat Features:

  • Base with SafeCell Technology®
  • Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether®
  • True Side Impact Protection®


Britax has been a pioneer in child passenger safety for more than 35 years, with a legacy of leadership in developing innovations that enhance the safety of child car seats and improve their ease of installation and use. Their uncompromising focus has made Britax the best-selling child seat in Europe and one of the brands most trusted by American parents and caregivers since entering the U.S. market in 1996.

Features

  • Base with SafeCell Technology® features SafeCells designed to compress in a crash, significantly lowering the center of gravity and counteracting the forward rotation of the child seat which normally propels the child toward the front seat
  • Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash
  • Energy Absorbing Versa-Tether® features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • True Side Impact Protection® offers a head restraint creating extra layer of energy-absorbing EPP foam, keeping the head, neck and spine "in true"/aligned and deep side walls lined with EPP foam distribute crash forces and contain the head, neck & body

Conquering Parental Anxiety, with a Car Seat

In my almost 5 years of parenting I’ve changed thousands of diapers, fed a comparable number of bottles, lost incalculable hours of much-needed sleep and had myriad Pixar...Read complete review

In my almost 5 years of parenting I’ve changed thousands of diapers, fed a comparable number of bottles, lost incalculable hours of much-needed sleep and had myriad Pixar movies’ images permanently burned into my corneas after perpetual viewings. Parenting the two Junior Dudes has introduced me to activities that not only had I never done before, but many that I didn’t even know existed before I became a father. Siphoning the snot out of their congested little noses, anyone? There is one invaluable parenting exercise, however, which I had intentionally avoided doing since even before Day 1: I never learned how to install a car seat. Though I’ve never acknowledged it before now, I admit that not knowing how to do something as vital as this has been a source of guilt. So you’re probably wondering why an extremely hands-on father like me never learned how to install a car seat and the answer is simple. Insecurity. Not wanting to fail as a father has been an ongoing fear since long before I actually became one and I don’t think that’s abnormal. I frequently tell my boys, and myself, that my primary objectives are making sure they are always fed, healthy & safe. When we went to get our first infant seat installed a week before the Little Dude was born, it was my 37-weeks-pregnant wife maneuvering in the back seat of her Prius watching the Installation Guru finesse the intimidating harnesses and straps into place. I was afraid that when called upon to install a car seat in a real setting, I would do it wrong and my son would somehow get hurt as a result. So I strongly encouraged my wife, who is much better with attention to detail than I’ll ever be, to learn the process. And for 4 1/2 years, she’s moved the seats in and out of our cars like a professional. So I decided to finally do something about it. When the Britax people asked if we wanted to test out their Advocate "UltimateComfort Series" car seat*, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally learn this skill I desperately wanted but had long avoided. Since we’ve used Britax car seats for years, and I felt confident that they’ve been keeping my boys safe, this was my golden opportunity to finally practice what I preach. I opened the box and read the instruction booklet cover to cover. I felt comforted knowing Britax’s patented HUGS Chest Pads would be hugging the Littler Dude safely in his seat, since I can’t do it myself while driving. The technology Britax created to minimize the force a child encounters in the unexpected event of an accident is vital and the seat’s Integrated Steel Bars lock its connection to the car, reducing forward movement during a crash. There are countless features Britax includes to make sure that kids stay safe in the (Heaven Forbid) event of an accident. Those are the nightmares no parent wants to think about, but I feel better knowing Britax is looking out for my kids like they are their own. Since both of my boys are near the top of their respective growth charts, it’s reassuring to know that the 19-month-old Littler Dude can stay in this Advocate until he’s 65 pounds (and 49� tall), which should be at least another year (hopefully 4). When the moment of truth finally happened, when it was time to personally ensure my son’s day-to-day safety, I brought the owner’s manual and one more essential asset out to the driveway to help me install my first car seat: my wife. I expected a barrage of obstacles and challenges, but the truth is the actual installation took less than 10 minutes start to finish. Like a child afraid to try a new food, only to discover it’s delicious, I conquered a critical piece of self-doubt that had plagued me for 4 1/2 years. Knowing how safe and well-built Britax products are, I have no doubt that the Littler Dude will be safe in his new Advocate. Plus, now that I know first-hand how LATCH connectors and the Five-Point Harness work, I feel extra confident that my sons are in good hands…and comfy seats. (Did I mention that it's called the UltimateComfort Series partly because the headrests and seat itself are Memory Foam?) Though I’m still a car seat novice, I can rest assured knowing that the Littler Dude clearly appreciates at least one essential feature of his Advocate: Britax’s True Side Impact Protection, or as he likely views it, a cozy place to rest his head.

This seat was great at first, but it didn't last to it's expiration date. It worked well enough for my first child, but when I tried to use it for my second it stopped tightening enough. There's still over a year left until it reaches the expiration date and I now have to purchase another convertible seat because I can't get the straps tight enough to be safe.

This is our second Britax Car Seat and could not be happier.

By Abuela

from Alpharetta, GA, United States

Comments about Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

This car seat is safe, comfortable, love the cup holder and the little bag to hold items such as Boogie Wipes or toys. We had bought another Britax and when we knew we needed another car seat, we never considered another brand.

Cover doesn't fit well

By Saltman911

from O'Fallon, MO, United States

Comments about Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

I have a two-year-old model of this product. The cover on it doesn't fit well and keeps sliding off about once a week. All the other features that britax describes about the products are correct. Easy to place in your vehicle, easy to operate, great protection, and a quality construction. I have had two of their car seats syles. the boulevard and the advocate. both have been a fine addition to our safety conscious family. The only cons so far are that their car seats are larger than most car seats and require a larger SUV or car to have enough room for you and your child. I am 6 foot 225 pounds and I had to almost have the car seat of my Murano all the way forward to accommodate a rear facing seat behind the driver side. After the car seat was switched from the rear facing to front facing positions then it was easier on my driver side car seat position and no longer feel cramped. I have a Nissan Murano so its not exactly a small vehicle. the other con is the cover slipping off of the advocate after the first year and a half of use. Steve, RN

Everything breaks

By Mi2dc2ma

from Boston, MA, United States

Comments about Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

It seems safe and relatively comfy, but for what you pay for, the nonessential pieces fall apart way too easily. The safecell things on both seats (we have twins) snapped off as soon as the weather got cold. The headrest is just styrofoam and has broken in two places; the only thing holding it together is the cover. The cover of the seat pops off whenever they wiggle, and putting everything back together after washing is a huge pain (not to mention it's not machine washable or dry able, so if you need to wash it, you'd better not need to go anywhere for at least 24 hours while it dries). As I mentioned, we have two of these, and have had the same issues with both.

Nice but easily destroy by child

By danny

from Taiwan

Comments about Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

I bought it 2 years ago. My child like to put his hand in the Pads near his head when he sleep. And the Pad came to a rupture finally. The polymer pads seems too easily bend to rupture.

Very safe

By Pepiat

from Santiago de Chile, Chile

Comments about Britax Advocate G4 Convertible Car Seat - Onyx:

It seems to be a super safe car seat, with the airbags and all the lateral support, my baby seems to be very comfortable in it while traveling. The only downside is how difficult is to seat a baby in it, both in and out; for example, it is impossible to seat a baby while sleeping, or take him out and not wake him up. Also, the straps are really short, I hope to find a larger replacement. Overall it is a good seat, and I already recommended it to my friends.
