Dangerous

This is my 5th Safe n Sound seat and after one month of use I am unable to use it. The strap release leaver can be reached by my son, he lifted it, released the straps and climbed out whilst I was driving down the freeway. I’ve gone back to using my older Maxi Rider as the strap release is further away and is a push button, we’ve never had an issue with that seat. A Britax representitive advised me to discipline my son better.

Fantastic Seat

I purchased two of these seats in January 2018. The seat is so easy to install, and once in it is easy to adjust and take the seat cover off for easy washing. My daughter loves the seat and is very comfortable sitting in it too. I love the fact that it is a 5 point harness until she outgrows it at around age 8, as the idea of a lap sash is not so appealing for me. Will be definitely purchasing another 2 when my son grows out of his carseat.

Mixed feelings

While the car seat itself seems comfortable for my grandson and the height adjustment is easy, releasing the straps to loosen or tighten is extremely hard to do. Pressing the lever and pulling the straps is really hard and sometimes I have to pull straps from under the seat. Is this normal? Show details

Great car seat, easy to use, toddler finds it comfy

We got this car seat for our toddler when his brother arrived and needed the old baby seat. This seat fits in the centre seat next to the Britax Graphene in my Kia Seltos (small SUV). Toddler loves the arm rests and they fold up to make it easier to get him out which is helpful. Would definitely recommend. Show details ·  1

Best car seat on the market

I have 2 of these car seats and they have been nothing but fantastic. Super comfortable for long distance travelling, easy to clean, easy to install, easy to adjust headrest with just a push of a button. Material quality is excellent. Show details

Great seat!

Somehow managed to fit this replacement seat after getting a mother's choice, 3 across in my tiny Hatchback.
Perfect for small cars and when wanting to upgrade the toddler from a 0-4 to 4-8yrs.

Whilst quite roomy and a big seat it is compact at the end, fits well into the car.
My daughter likes it well, though keep in mind the space you'll need for the passenger and driver especially if you end up getting the Brava like I did.

My child often falls asleep and is happy to look up at the window now that she's at the level compare to her last seat.

Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to adjust, no thread belt, very easy to setup and remove. Worth the money. Still very surprised it fit into my small car three across. Show details ·  1

It moves too much

I owned a great Safe and Sound seat already and bought this one feeling very confident it was going to be good. It does not fit right in seat after installation. Every time I put my son in it and try and tighten his harness the whole seat moves way to much and makes me wonder what would happen if an accident was to occur. Ended up getting a new car seat. Show details

Thank you for your message, I would always recommend that a car seat is always installed by a registered fitter, as sometimes it can depend on the contour of your vehicle seat. Kind Regards the Britax Team

Great product

My daughter loves her booster seat. It is super comfy for her and also knowing how safe she is when sitting in it is such a big relief as well Show details ·  1

My 10 year old has only just grown out of it!

Safety for my children is my number 1 priority. After learning that the manufacturers of seatbelts state that you must be a minimum of 145cm in height to safely use a seatbelt (to adequately clear the neck and avoid submarining) I started actively searching for a booster with harness that would suit children up to 145cm tall. This seat, whilst one of the more expensive options, proved to be the most comfortable and easiest to adjust. The children especially love the head protection, which serves as a head rest on long trips, and the seat is extremely comfortable. The ease of adjusting the height of the headrest and straps for different height children is also a major design breakthrough. I highly recommend this product. Show details ·  1

Best compact booster seat

We needed to purchase 2 of these to fit 3 seats across our Captiva. These are amazing. Structurally Safe but still comfy for the kids. Will definitely buy a third when it’s time. Show details ·  1

This seat is amazing

we bought this seat for extended harness till 8 years old. So much better then the infasecure car seat we had. I dont have to fiddle with the harness for my sons height you just pull the clip on the headrest which is amazing. All car seats should have this feature and the price was amazing. Show details ·  1

Does the MaxiGuard have an adjustable crutch strap?
I read a review elsewhere that it didn't, which is surprising, how does a child grow from 6mths to 8yrs without an adjustment in that area? Especially boys.

Hi Marie, thanks for your question. The crotch buckle is adjustable through the slots of the car seat. Please feel free to give us a call on 1300 303 330 if you would like to discuss this with us in further detail. Kind regards, the Britax team.

Does anyone know why the maxi-guard is suited for 6 months to 8 years but everything online says minimum of 1 year for rear facing? I've just bought one for my 6 month old but looks like I shouldn't be using it.
