With its slim base and flexible installation options, the Eclipse is a great choice for older or smaller cars, without compromising on the safety and comfort of your infant.
The Britax Eclipse can be installed using either a 3-point seat belt or the 2-point lap belt found in older cars and in the middle seat of some newer vehicles. It has a narrow base, making it suitable for use in cars where there is limited space, such as smaller cars, three-door cars or cars with sculptured seating.
One out of four car accidents is a side collision and side collisions account for 20% of child fatalities, so it is vital to provide side protection for your child. The Eclipse plus has deep, softly padded side wings which ensure your child is protected in the event of a side collision and provide extra comfort and support on every journey.
Britax advocates children remaining in a properly positioned five-point harness for as long as possible. The Eclipse has a harness with five attachment points: two at the shoulder, two at the hips, and one between the legs, ensuring your child remains securely in the seat. The harness can be adjusted with one pull.
It is important that you make an informed decision when buying a car seat. This list of all the safety and comfort features should help you decide if the Britax Eclipse is the right car for your child and your requirements.
If this car seat does not have all the features you want, why not look at the Britax Car Seat Buying Guide to see which of their other car seats might be more suitable.
Single group seats have the optimum shape designed for the weight of the child. They also offer additional comfort and practicality. Group 1 seats have comfortable recline systems that are easy to adjust while the child is in the seat and seat is fitted to the car.
Group 1 car seats are suitable for children weighing between 9 and 18 kg (approximately 9 months to 4 years old). You should move from a Group 0+ to a Group 1 seat when your child exceeds the weight limit and can sit up unaided with confidence or if their head is higher than the top of the infant carrier.
When you buy a Britax car seat, you can be reassured that you are benefiting from over 40 years of experience and innovation in child safety. Britax made its first child car seat in the 1960s and has continued to innovate and influence in this market ever since. In collaboration with VW, Britax developed the ISOFIX system that is now an international standard, as well as creating the first adjustable child seat and the first ever baby carrier specifically for newborn passengers.
Britax’s products are tested to the highest standards and it is one of very few brands to own in-house crash-test systems--the kind used in the automotive industry-–ensuring it provides optimum protection and safety for children. This is one of many reasons that the brand has become a much-appreciated partner of automobile clubs, government agencies and other transport-related institutions. Beyond this, Britax listens to its customers and feeds their experiences into future product developments, so that their car seats and travel systems meet real-life needs.
