Well built, robust and safe
Comfortable for your toddlers
Great value for money and durable long term use (7 ½ years)
Bulky, not suitable for small cars
Not ISOFIX compatible
Forward facing only
Wish I could rate it more, but design is unsafe!
The button is a magnet for my kids to lengthen the straps to remove themselves from the seat/compromise the safety of the harness because it's been made too loose. The recline can only be set or not, no ability to adjust in-the-car, and the seat length is terrible for kids hips and legs (and therefore overall comfort) as it's like being perched ont he edge of a stool with legs dangling.
The colour and fabric is nice - I wish that was enough.
Great seat, terrible material
The seat itself is fantastic, although the material is terrible and snags and picks very easily. Don't be fooled by 5yr warranty - Britax refused to fix it, and blamed me for the problem with the material, telling me it must be my jewellery (which I don't wear!). I also have the older model (3yrs old) and the material is so much better. I wish they had left the material as it was
Questions & Answers
I’ve installed my seat using the manual provided and checking multiple you tube videos.
However the seat still feels very loose when I shake it in comparison to my isofix chair I had before.
Should you be able to shake the seat when you push it from side to side? It just feels less secure and I’m not sure if something is wrong or not

Britax's Safe-n-Sound Maxi Guard PRO is a sturdy, and much loved, forward-facing baby car seat and a member of the trusted Britax Maxi family - with over 97% giving the product a 4 or 5 star rating.
Britax claims that the product can safely be used on children from the ages of 6 months to 8 years, but it is always safer to keep your baby in a rear-facing seat for as long as possible before transitioning to a forward-facing one.
For those concerned with the safety rating of their products, look no further. The Maxi Guard PRO ranks 4.9 in build quality, is durable, cushioned and well-protected on all sides with a dual layer Head and Torso Side Impact Cushion Technology™ (SICT™).
Thermo5® high-performance fabric with Bamboo Charcoal ensures that your child is kept comfortable in all weather conditions - along with 2 reclining positions to suit your sleeping toddler.
A 6 point Hassle Free Harness™ is a key feature which keeps your child securely restrained at all times. Along with the head rest, both features are adjustable to suit a growing child.
Practicality is a strong suit, offering ample storage space, cup holders and a full length messy mat.
Reviewers especially love:
- The security of the well-designed safety features of the Maxi Guard PRO provides much needed protection and peace-of-mind for concerned parents
- How comfortable the seat is for their little ones
- The ease of installation shown through a physical manual and a YouTube video
- Easily cleanable
- Adjustable headrests & harnesses to support your child as they grow
- Pouch at front to store snacks, toys & other goodies
- The design is sleek, gender neutral and modern
- The brilliant value for money since this product can be used for 7 and a half years until your child is 8 years old!
Things to consider:
- The product is on the larger side and can take up space in the back sets which may not be suitable if you have a small vehicle or multiple baby car seats in one car
- The price is in the mid to high range
- Forward-facing only and not suitable for children under the age of 6 months and not recommended until your child outgrows rear-facing seats
- Not ISOFIX compatible and will require a manual seat belt installation
