Britax has long stood at the top of the heap of the car seat and booster market: they make child safety seats that parents trust. All car seats on the market meet minimum safety standards, but Britax keeps pushing the envelope, creating seats with more and more safety features.
The Britax Pinnacle 90 Combination Harness-2-Booster car seat has two key features that take safety to the next level:
Britax ClickTight technology: This brand-new installation method makes it easier than ever to install your Pinnacle Harness-2-Booster seat correctly – and remember, your car seat only provides full protection for your child if you get the installation right, so this is important!
To install your Britax Pinnacle car seat, pull up the belt-tensioning plate in the seat, thread the belt through, and press the plate down, and bingo! You’ve got a nice tight installation, for your child’s safety and your peace of mind. Watch our friend Jamie Grayson, The Baby Guy NYC, do the installation here.
SICT and True SIP Technology: Side Impact Protection (SIP) is popping up in car seats everywhere, and while testing standards don’t exist for SIP yet, we love the extra reassurance it provides, since side-impact collisions are less common but more dangerous than front or rear collisions.
The Britax Pinnacle 90 Combination Harness-2-Booster features Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT), energy-absorbing cushions on the exterior of the car seat which reduce side impact crash energy by diverting crash forces; they also protect the adjacent passenger. This seat also has Britax True SIP – deep side walls and a head restraint with energy-absorbing EPP foam which distributes crash forces and keeps your child’s head, neck, and body aligned properly.
Along with these new features, the Britax Pinnacle 90 Combination Harness-2-Booster includes:
Additional safety features: Safecell Technology in the base of the Frontier car seat compresses in the event of a crash, lowering the center of gravity and reducing forward movement. Integrated Steel Bars strengthen the connection of the car seat to the vehicle, and reduce forward flexing. The Energy-Absorbing Versa Tether uses integrated stage-released stitching to reduce crash forces that reach your child. HUGS chest pads provide resistance to forward movement. And the compatible SecureGuard system (sold separately) works with the vehicle belt in booster mode to prevent your child from sliding under the lap-belt, preventing abdominal injury.
A safer, easier harness: The tangle-free five-point car seat harness on the Pinnacle 90 car seat and booster distributes crash forces to the strongest part of a child’s body, and with 10 harness height positions, up to 20.5”, and two buckle positions, it’s easy to get the right fit. The Pinnacle car seat also has a nice high weight limit in 5-point-harness mode, so you can keep your child in the safer harness for longer – up to 90 pounds! Finally, the Quick-Adjust No-Rethread Harness System lets you adjust the harness shoulder height and head restraint from the front without disassembling the straps, and the EZ-Buckle System keeps the harness facing forward and keeps your child from sitting on it.
Comfort features: Comfort matters in a booster seat, especially for older kids! The Britax Pinnacle 90 Combination Harness-2-Booster has luxurious ComfortFoam padding, cupholders and storage, and cozy armrests to keep your child happy on the go. Plus, the Easy-Remove cover comes right off without forcing you to disassemble the harness or remove the seat from the car, so it’s so easy to keep clean!
