How does my child benefit from the seat having Reinforced Harness Slots?
BRITAX reinforces each and every harness slot so that any harness height can be used; the result is achieving a better harness fit for your child whether they are forward or rear facing. Many competitive seats specify that you use certain harness slots for your child when they are rear facing and other harness slots for when they are forward facing. Having to use certain harness slots depending on the mode may not result in the most appropriate harness fit for your child and can make using the seat very confusing.
Not only does having reinforced harness slots allow for a more custom fit for your child, but it also allows the seat to handle the increased amount of force that is applied to it during a crash.
