How does my child benefit from a seat with a Five-Point Harness System?
Injuries may occur when crash forces make contact with your child. Incorporating a five-point harness in the seat allows crash forces to be diverted away from your child during a crash over the five points of contact with the seat, therefore keeping your child from absorbing those forces and minimizing injury.
How does the Five-Point Harness System work?
A five-point harness system is designed to make contact with and transfer crash forces over the strongest parts of the body – the hips and shoulders. At BRITAX we understand that children are safer in a five-point harness and that is why we have created seats with internal harness systems that accommodate children up to 85 pounds.
We are not the only ones who understand that a five-point harness is safe – race car drivers and fighter pilots use five-point harness systems for the same reason.
