Britax Carseat Giveaway

The Marathon is one of Britax’s most popular car seats because of its large weight capacity, safety features, side impact protection and price. The Britax Marathon, like the Boulevard, has a weight range up to 65 lbs. so you only need one car seat from birth for the average kid. Make sure to check the height requirements as children often come short when infants or outgrow the height requirements before the weight capacity. Make sure to carefully read your owner's manual before and while using any car seat. The Click & Safe (CS) feature was just released last summer and was only available on the Boulevard until now. The Click & Safe feature lets caregivers know if their children are secured properly in their car seats and was developed as a result of a study by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that indicated 59% of harness straps were dangerously loose.

“The Marathon CS is a tangle-free, five-point harness seat, and accommodates children rear-facing from five to 35 pounds and forward-facing children from at least one-year-old and 20 pounds up to 65 pounds. The seat also features Britax’s revolutionary side impact protection which uses deep side walls with energy-absorbing foam, to shield from vehicle intrusion, contain the head and body, and distribute crash forces in side impact collisions. This is critical because approximately one in four of all motor vehicle crashes that involve children occur from the side, and these result in a significantly higher injury rate than frontal or rear impacts, according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.”
