Unboxing of the New Britax Harness 2 Booster...the Grow with You Clicktight, and I am here for it.

Nov 12, 2019
Ok, it has been a bit since I have written anything here.  I have been traveling for work, but not the kind of work stuff you want to know about.  I mean, unless you want to know more about Pinterest, or SEO strategies?  It has been fun, but what was really fun was coming home to a gift from Britax for me to unbox.  The Grow with You Clicktight is the newest entry on the market for five point harness to boosters from Britax, and they have really cornered the market.  This will be the last carseat you will ever need for your child.  Read after the jump for more info, and the unboxing video.

I was sent a Britax Grow With You Clicktight for the purposes of review, but all opinions are my own.  By continuing to read beyond this point you are agreeing to my updated privacy policy, found here, and my use of commissioned based links.  At no cost to you, the affiliate links allow me to continue to offer content for free!

She really loves her new Grow with You Clicktight!

There just are not many five point harness boosters on the market.



Britax has long been a favorite for our family.  They truly changed the game when they introduced Clicktight, the revolutionary, easy, and safe way to install car seats. For us, a family of five who likes to travel, it has made renting a car with three car seats possible.


The Grow with You Clicktight is the newest five point harness booster from Britax.

It is really easy for my five-year-old to get herself in and out of the Grow with You seat


The Grow with You line replacesthe Frontier and Pinnacle series of front facing booster seats.  It is a harness 2 booster, meaning that it grows with your child from the 5-point harness, to the high backed booster when your child outgrows the five point harness.

The Grow with you comes in two models, Grow with You Clicktight, and Britax  Grow with You Clicktight Plus.  The plus has an additional layer of side impact protection, and it is wider than the Grow with You Clicktight.  For the purposes of this review I received the Grow with You Clicktight in the color Mulberry (which is a beautiful purple color).

There is a price point difference between the two, the Grow with You Clicktight has a retail price of 299.99, while the Grow with You Clicktight Plus retails for 329.99.


What I love about it:


Ease of the installation.


The Britax Frontier Clicktight technology a few years ago, it changed our lives.  Check out this super old unboxing video.  And oh my goodness, my babies were tiny!  It is so easy to install.  We can install a seat in less than five minutes.  When we travel and take three car seats/boosters-it’s a game changer.

It has an easy to adjust, one handed, height adjustable handle. That means when it’s time to adjust the height for your child, you don’t have to rethread the harness!  It moves upward with the headrest.

With the clicktight, you can put the adult seat belt through the marked pathways, and snap it into place.  SO EASY.

Safety

You can see how the recline feature allows us to easily adapt to the correct fit on the Honda seat.

The reason we love the Britax brand is because of the safety.  The reason that we don’t do backless booster seats in our primary vehicle, is because we know that five point harness boosters are safer than the shoulder belt.  With the safe cell technology, and the steel frame, it’s no wonder that the insurance institute named Britax as having one of the safest booster seats for 2019.

I don’t want to overload you on the details, but you can read more about the Britax Grow with You Clicktight plus harness 2 booster safety here.  We often joke with our oldest ( who is almost 10 and just graduated out of the five point harness a month ago) about how she might be married before she reaches the 120 lbs capacity of the seat.

 Ok, we might let her stop at 110 pounds. We know it isn’t popular to use booster seats for school aged children, particularly the older ones, but there just isn’t another option in our house.  It is really nice to have the option for booster car seats for bigger kids.

Features


Now we all know about Clicktight, the easily adjustable headrest height, now it’s time to tell you why my kids think this is the best five point harness booster seat...the comfort.  They really like the new cushy seats.  Believe me, the comfort has come a long way from the first models.

One of the things that I like best is that I can fit three of them across in my Honda minivan.  You heard that right.  The plus is too wide to put them side by side, but the Frontier, and the regular Grow with You Clicktight are easy.  The kids also like the integrated cup holders, and I like not having to purchase another accessory.

Here is a picture of the width differences:

Grow with You Clicktight is 18.5 inches wide

The plus has an extra layer of impact protection that makes it wider.


 As you can see the Grow with You Clicktight Plus is wider.  At its widest point the plus is about 22 inches wide, while the Grow with You is 18.5 inches wide.  That is due to the extra impact protection around the head.

I know I mentioned above about the one handed height adjustment without having to rethread the harness, but it bears mentioning again in the features.  That makes it so convenient for height changes!  The buckle strap between the legs is similarly easy to move forward and change buckle positions.

 Removing the harness


Removing the harness, and turning it into a high back booster is very simple.  You simply tuck them into the seat back storage compartment itself.  No real removal required.  It really could not be simpler.

I just love the Mulberry color.  So does she!

Let’s talk about about the fun stuff

Fabrics:


The Grow with You five point harness booster seats come in a variety of fabrics like grey, black, blue, purple, and two shades of cool flow.  We got the Mulberry (purple) this time but last time we tried the Cool Flow Frontier. You can click this link to see what all of those colors look like.

 If your child gets overheated quickly, or you live in a warm climate-you may want to consider the Cool Flow.  You can read more about it here. The Grow with You Plus only comes in grey and black, and I hope they will have more colors soon.

The Grow with You Clicktight is made for children who are two years old and 25 lbs.  The seat cover for the Plus is machine washable, and able to go into the dryer.  As a parent of a child who gets car sick-YAY!  It weighs 26.5 pounds (the plus also weighs 26.5 pounds).  Not super light, but a bit less than my double bob.  Very do-able for travel.

The Britax five point harness booster seat for over 40 lbs is really a game changer, and the best one on the market, in my opinion.  I have done some booster seat reviews, and looked for booster harness car seat reviews, and there just aren’t many out there.  Most manufacturers don’t make five point booster seats for bigger kids. They make child booster seats more of a one size fit all, but we know what works for some families, will not work for others.

Unboxing:




I unintentionally matched the Grow with You Clicktight during the unboxing.  It made me laugh, thinking about that silly mistake.  What you see is me, the box, and a lot of fumbling as I go through the details.  I did not look at the Grow with You Clicktight before the unboxing, so my reactions are real.
