How it works
If you have a child that often gets car sick you are aware of the problems that you might have with the cleaning of the car and that detailed cleaning of the car seat can be really troublesome and quite a challenge. Another common problem when driving a child in a car seat are the stains that can become more obvious depending on the original print of the car seat cover. So no matter whether you want to refresh the car seat for your child or you want to upgrade it and re-use the car seat for another child purchasing a cover set for your child car seat can instantly make the car seat look brand new. There are many car seats on the market out there but one of the synonyms for safety, when we talk about child car seats, is the company Britax. So, if you are already one of the many satisfied users of the Britax Marathon ClickTight Car Seats you will find this product extremely useful because it is a secondary cover set which is compatible only with Marathon ClickTight car seats that had been produced after July 2014. This cover set is ideal if you want to refresh the old car seat or if it seems worn out or simply if you are too tired of the one you have and you want to change the design. The cover set includes few things among which a cover for the car seat, comfortable pillow, and pad for the head, EZ-Buckle belly pad, and two comfort pads. The Britax car seats are usually used for long years and more than often one car seat is used for more than one child so in such cases, this cover set made of 100% polyester with polyurethane fill can be the much-needed replacement cover. More about the features of this Convertible Car Seat Cover Set are presented in this review article.
The fabric is extremely strong and what is more important durable, meaning that it is resistant to stretching and shrinking so you do not have to worry if you have to wash the cover few times that the next time it will shrink. Another good feature of the polyester is that in nature is quick in drying. Although the tag says hand-washed only, many customers say that it can be perfectly safe to put the cover in a washer bag and put the bag in a machine.
So in these cases, we need to protect the car seat covers from dirt as well. The function of this cover is not only practical as mentioned here but the cover can have aesthetic value too because for many parents and kids as well, style, colors, and patterns matter and if you want to make the car seat more appealing for the child you can do this by simply using this child seat cover instead of changing the whole car seat.
This cover works well as a backup especially in cases when your child accidentally gets the original cover soiled and it is really convenient just to replace it and wash the old i.e. original one. So, Britax Marathon Cover ClickTight Car Seat Cover Set has dual function to protect and style your child’s car seat.
The shoulder strap pads, head pad and buckle belly pad not only provide premium comfort but these characteristics contribute much more for the safety of the child riding in the car seat. The shoulder pads keep the child in a good position when sitting as well as the belly pad which stays in a forward position and you can easily get your child in and out of the car seat. The belly pad provides nice cushioning between the stomach of the child and the buckle.
This cover set can serve as a protection of the car seat especially in cases when your family keeps a pet. The combination of looking after kids and pets is always tiring and asks for lots of dedication to cleaning which is followed by another cleaning. Having a backup option for something that you use every day and is subject of daily wear is really convenient.
Easy to Install
It is of perfect size to replace the original car seat cover and the majority of the customers say that it is very easy to be put on the car seat. However, a number of customers complain that the cushioning comes into many different pieces and at times it can be difficult to put everything back together again after you have taken the original off.
The only thing that you should be very careful about is the type of model when ordering. When you browse through the different colors the model of the car seat changes correspondingly and that’s why you should pay special attention if you choose a certain color or print/pattern whether they are compatible for the model Marathon ClickTight. The manufacturer had clearly stated that this cover set is only compatible with this model: Britax Marathon ClickTight Convertible Car Seat Cover Set.
The Bottom Line
This cover set is a great backup option when you are washing or when the original cover got soiled. The material of the cover is easy to clean; it is durable and does not shrink and it is quick on drying. The size of the cover is perfect and fit as the manufacturer has stated only the Marathon ClickTight car seats, which on one side can be a drawback. The comfort of the car seat and the original cover is not compromised since this set also includes headrest, shoulder comfort pads, belly pad and comfortable pillow that is removable.
The cover set as we have already said is a perfect size and it is an added bonus for the Britax car seats since with this extra cover you can keep the car seat brand new, shiny and clean and it is a great replacement especially for the Britax car seats that are used so many years.
