I spent a considerable amount of time researching car seats for my second child. We had purchased a Britax years ago for our older child, and loved the quality and safety. But there were so many new options on the market when we had our son, and that I entertained the idea of looking at other brands. When I saw it click tight model, I got very excited. Car seats are expensive, especially good ones like Britax! my husband and I did not want to sacrifice quality and safety for the sake of being able to afford two car seats, one for each car. The click tight is a heavy car seat, but the ease with which I installed and uninstalled it between our cars is worth every penny. I also like that the in-laws and grandparents can easily install it to and it isn't rocket science. There is a ton of padding on this thing, so far my son seems to be happy with it. my only concern is going to be in the summertime, I hope the padding doesn't make the seat too hot to sit in! Overall, we are very pleased with the car seat.

I really wanted to love this car seat but I honestly regret buying it. My biggest complaint is that they used very cheap components in the lower latch connector hooks, lower connector adjuster release button and finally the recline adjustment handle. These three pieces are not made well and make installation of the car seat very difficult. I know that they recommend using a seat belt for connection but the center seatbelt in my 2012 Honda pilot comes from the ceiling so it is better to use the latch connection points. The cheapness of these parts made it so I had to get help from my husband to get the car seat installed and then uninstalled. At around 120lbs I was not strong enough and did not weigh enough to get the click tight to close properly when installed rear facing. When I wanted to move the seat to another car I was not strong enough to undo the click tight. I again needed my husband to do it. I compete in triathlons so I should be strong enough to install a car seat. How safe is a car seat that has to be installed by heavy strong man? What if I need to move it to another car without the help of a guy? So other things I wish I would have know before buying this seat. I can not overemphasizes the cheapness of the lower latch hooks, lower adjust release button and lean angle handle. The hooks are very hard to connect and unconnect. If the car seat is installed rear facing it is impossible to adjust the lean angle without redoing the latches again. However, the lean angle changes once its installed due to the force towards the latch area. Finally, I think that the manual or the britax website needed to be more specific on the location of the model number (its under the fabric by the child's left leg). I should have spent half the amount of money and gotten a different seat. Very disappointed.

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

    When we bought our convertible car seats we had a hard time deciding between the Chicco Next Fit and the Britax Marathon Clicktight. We ended up getting one of each, I got the chicco for my car and we got the Britax clicktight for my husband's car since he has a second vehicle and it would be easier to move. I had read some reviews about the click tight's crotch strap being too short but our kiddo is in the 75% for height and we have had no issues. I prefer putting our son into the Britax vs the Chicco, it's just much easier to adjust than the Chicco one. We had a britax infant seat so maybe I was just used to Britax and felt more comfortable with Britax but if you're on the fence like I was I would definitely go with Britax instead of Chicco!

    This car seat took me forever to install. I needed my husband's help to get it installed properly. The straps will not loosen. I am going to probably return it for a different car seat.

    Short Straps

    By llama

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

    I was looking for a new seat for my 3 year old child and we couldn't strap him - the straps were way too short. Unless your child is a waif or you're not planning on using it over 30 lbs, there is no way a child 45-65 lbs could be strapped in this seat. Too bad, considering the clicktight feature seemed amazing.

    Very disappointed...

    By Erinhuey3

    from Houston, TX, United States

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

    I am a FTM and I did a lot of research before buying a convertible car seat for our little girl. Every review was great for this car seat, safest, most comfortable, and easy to use. So I chose this car seat for my car and my husband chose the Recaro convertible car seat for his car. I definitely chose wrong. This car seat is very difficult to use, my kiddo is not comfortable and it is very obnoxious to use. My 2 year old is big for her age but the car seat is meant to be used for kids up to 50 lbs, when my little girl was 24lbs she honestly didn't fit in this car seat. The straps do not loosen at all and constantly get stuck behind the car seat. The recaro my husband got it so easy to use and my daughter actually says that she would rather ride in daddy's car. I was hoping for my daughter to be in this car seat for a very long time since it is up to 50lbs but I am already looking into another car seat because I am so unhappy with this product.

    Pain in the butt!

    By Edlsgal

    from Erie, CO

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

    I've had my ClickTight for a year now an I am not happy with it. The thing is a tank. You cannot remove it with a child in it so you always have to wake up a sleeping child. It is a pain to install. If you don't have the tension of the seatbelt just right you can't close it or its too loose. You have to move it to adjust the incline so it is a guessing game based on the slope of the seat. The straps don't loosen very much so it can be irritating trying to get the child in and out while holding a toy. The padding comes off the plastic sides if you lean on it and it is a pain to reattach it.

    Love this Car Seat

    By AlisonVan

    from Carlisle, PA, United States

    Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

    I bought this car seat about 3 weeks ago for my 1 year old. It is sturdy and sleek in design. I love the clicktight feature! I have a Toyota corolla and I expected the fit to be snug. Surprisingly, there is more room than I imagined there would be. The straps are easy to use and operate. I did have to adjust the buckle on the bottom and after that adjustment, everything has been fabulous. I plan on buying another one for my husband's car!

      We absolutely love our Britax car seat. We purchased this one for our second vehicle, we received basically the same one for our daughter as a Christmas present last year. She hated being rear facing (she wanted to see all the action), but loves this seat forward facing. She is 2 years old, about 35+ and about 30 lbs. It fits her comfortably - though I did have to adjust the bottom buckle, as the inside position was way too tight for her.

        Hate Installing

        By Slgrimmer

        from Lake Havasu City, AZ, United States

        Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

        I have had this car seat for 11 month now and I hate it! It is so hard to install with the latch system. I have a very difficult time turning the clicktight button to get the seat to open up. We struggle with it every time. It's very hard to turn, and then it's also hard to get it to latch again once you are done installing. Right now I have to wait for my husband to get off work to see if he can turn it so I can wash the pads after a blow out. (All pads are also hand wash and air dry so it's not a fast or easy process either) The hooks for the latch system are also very basic. The regular marathon which has hooks with a release button are so much easier to use. Yes this car seat keeps my daughter safe. Yes I have read all the information on how to correctly install it. She is safe when in the carseat. But man do I dread having to ever take it out of the car ( It is also very heavy) I am really considering trying to sell it and just getting a regular Marathon like her cousins.

        Sturdy but heavy

        By Mommabear

        from Ontario

        Comments about Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat - Verve:

        After weeks of shopping around I decided this car seat was safe and at a reasonable price. I was very intrigued by the promo video that showed how easy it was to install for everyone including grandparents. I have a small Honda Civic and frequently need to pass the car seat on to my Sister and parents and they curse the thing. We'll be getting something else that's easier to move and this will stay in one vehicle. Although it's a great seat and seems very safe, if I knew how big and heavy it was, how finnicky the click tight button is and how hard it is to adjust the angle, I might have gone with something else.
