Very heavy duty, great quality and easy to use

I will start by saying that this thing is a TANK, it is the heaviest car seat/booster/harness I have ever seen, and I have four installed in my car at the moment. If you have a compact car and more than two kids in a car seat, this will not be a great option since it aside from very heavy, it is huge. With that said, we absolutely love this unit. Sitting side by side with our Chico equivalent it is night and day (you can see it in the picture) and the older kids fight over who can sit on the Britax one.
INSTALLATION: It was a breeze to install, their new clicking system works extremely well and tightens the unit without effort. Basically there is a button inside the bottom area of the backrest that allows the bottom section to come up (as seen in the pics), you then put your shoulder-lap regular seat belts (recommended by them over the included anchors) through it, pulling it tight, then as a last step you push the bottom section over it until it clicks in place, once you do that the unit grabs the seat belt so tight that you can't move the unit anywhere, finally you hook the back tether belt behind the seat and it is impressive on how tight the unit becomes.
DAILY USE: This is where it shines, we have our 7 year old and our 4 year old (who seats in this new seat) in the third row, which is a bit troublesome to access without moving the second row. The unit is so easy to operate that we have thought our 7 year old to help his sister get buckled up , he is able to get her all hooked up by himself and all we have to do is check each time to make sure it is secure.
FEATURES: The unit is covered with very comfortable memory foam all over which makes it very nice for the little ones, especially on long trips. We haven't yet to use the booster feature as our little girl is still too small, but in looking at the instructions it seems like a very simple conversation (basically removing the harness belts and readjusting how the lap-shoulder seat belts work with the unit.
OVERALL: We feel as if this unit will do a tremendous job at keeping our kids very comfortable and most importantly very safe, it is our third child car seat of this brand, and it has not disappointed.
