Video: Britax Boulevard Clicktight Car Seat
The Boulevard ClickTight is a car seat dream come true! If you're in the market for a convertible car seat to grow with your child, keep it on your radar.
To start, the Boulevard has all the best safety features. The frame itself is steel-reinforced, and the base has what Britax calls SafeCell technology. The red honeycomb shape absorbs and disperses crash energy away from your child. Additionally, the Boulevard has two layers of side impact protection in the foam headrest, which is designed to keep your child’s head and neck extra secure. (Just as a note, this is one layer less than its sibling, the Advocate.) If you purchase the version that includes the anti-rebound bar, you can rest easy knowing that your infant is safe in rear-facing mode.
Just like other Britax car seats, the Boulevard offers exceptionally easy installation. They've implemented Clicktight technology to make installation with the vehicle seatbelt easy for all parents. As a note, these Clicktight car seats are made with seatbelt installation in mind as the preferred method. Although you can use the lower connectors in the same way, there are some disadvantages: with the LATCH system, there are weight limits to be aware of. Additionally, the actual lower connectors aren't quite as heavy duty as you might see with other brands. This is really just to encourage everyone to use the seatbelt and not worry about it!
To install the seat, all you have to do is route the belts through the proper belt path, remove enough slack, and then shut the Clicktight door. The button indicator will rotate into place once everything is locked! There's never any question about if you've done it correctly, so you can rest easy.
Aside from safety, there are a few aesthetic features that set the Boulevard apart as well. It's got a 7-position recline that is easy to adjust with a lever on the front of the seat. This makes switching from rear-facing to forward-facing super easy! The headrest also has 14 positions to fit your child as they grow, and the no-rethread harness simplifies everything. Top it off with high quality fabrics and padding, and the Boulevard is a winner!
