Offering Britax’s highest level of side impact protection, the Advocate Convertible Car Seat combines advanced safety features with a user-friendly design to keep your child safe and comfortable in the car. It’s also packed with come and user-friendly features like the EZ-Buckle system to keep the buckle out of the way when boarding, a Click & Safe indicator that ensures the harness is properly snug, and multiple recline options. The Advocate accommodates children rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds and forward facing from 20 to 65 pounds.
During a car crash, impacts with the front seat aren’t just dangerous – they can be deadly. BRITAX convertible car seats lower your child’s center of gravity to keep them safe, secure and away from front seat. The base of the Advocate includes SafeCell Technology comprised of SafeCells, an engineered material designed to compress in a crash. This compression lowers the center of gravity to counteract forward rotation of the seat, helping to minimize the risk of head injury during a collision. Located in the sides of the seat shell, integrated steel bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and prevent forward flexing of the seat during a crash to reduce the risk of head injury. Hugs Chest Pads with SafeCell Technology ensure proper positioning of the chest clip while SafeCells compress to manage energy and provide resistance to the forward movement of your child in a crash. In the event of a sudden stop, the Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether strap restricts forward movement and reduces crash forces with patented staged-release webbing and two-point attachment. This webbing securely anchors the top of your child seat to your vehicle in either rear- or forward-facing positions.
The tangle-free, five-point harness allows for multiple height positions and can be adjusted without dismantling the harness or removing the car seat from the vehicle. Two buckle positions provide a snug, comfortable fit as your child grows. Harness holders prevent the straps from getting in the way when you're putting your child in the seat, while the EZ-Buckle system maintains the harness buckle in a forward position to prevent your child from sitting on it when first entering the seat. High density comfort foam provides extra cushioning, while rear- and forward-facing recline options help your child relax on the journey. And the plush cover comes with matching comfort pads and an infant positioning pillow to keep children of all ages comfortable and secure.
Offering both Side Impact Cushion Technology and True Side Impact Protection, the Advocate provides complete protection. Side Impact Cushion Technology, comprised of energy-absorbing cushions on both sides of the exterior of the seat, compress upon impact to divert 45% of the crash energy away from your child while providing protection for the adjacent passenger. Additionally, the Britax True Side Impact Protection system guards your child's head and limits injury by shielding from vehicle intrusion and absorbing crash energy. The car seat has deep sidewalls lined with energy-absorbing EPP foam. This combination diverts crash force energy away from your child while creating a barrier against possible intruding objects. The head restraint offers a double layer of energy-absorbing foam and keeps your child's neck and spine properly aligned in the seat.
It's vital that harnesses are properly snug. The Advocate assists in the process of securing your child with the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator feature, which provides an audible sound when you're tightening the harness to indicate when it's in the range of appropriate snugness.
The Advocate takes the guesswork out of installing your car seat thanks to a range of convenience features. An anti-slip, contoured base grips and protects the vehicle seat. Premium lower Latch connectors make for a quick, simple, and tight installation, while the push-button allows you to easily uninstall the car seat. And easy-to-access built-in lock-offs provide a secure installation when using the vehicle lap and shoulder belt.
The 10-position, quick-adjust harness repositions harness shoulder height as your child grows without disassembling the harness straps.
Premium Latch installation provides an audible click and an easy-pull strap to simplify installation as well as a push-button design for easy removal.
The integrated steel bars strengthen the connection to the vehicle and reduce forward flexing of the child seat during a crash.
