Product Description

Britax Eclipse is the safe solution for smaller and older vehicles

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.

Performance Chest Pads
Chest pads control movement by spreading forces evenly over your child’s shoulder and chest, whist providing additional comfort.
Britax Eclipse is ideal for:
  • Toddlers weighing between 9 and 18kg
  • Older cars fitted with two-point lap belts
  • Smaller cars and cars with sculptured seats
  • Taking on aeroplanes
Pitch Control
Unique pitch control system reduces forward movement in the event of an accident.

Key features

The Eclipse fits cars that other seats don’t

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.

Deep, softly padded wings provide side impact protection

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.


Five-point harness for a secure position

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.

Full feature list

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.

  • 5-point safety harness with one pull adjustment
  • Side Impact Protection with deep, softly padded side wings
  • Unique pitch control system reduces forward movement in the event of an accident
  • Performance chest pads
  • Spring loaded belt mechanism allows easy installation
  • Slim base for a better fit in sculptured seats
  • Softly padded and washable cover
  • 3-point seat belt or 2 lap belt installation
  • Multi-recline positions the seat adjusts without disturbing your child
  • Harness retainers make it easy to get your child in and out of the seat
  • Aircraft approved--TUV Certified for air travel

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.

Why buy a Group 1 single group car seat?

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.

When is your child ready for a Group 1 car seat?

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.

Car seat safety essentials

  • Never buy a second hand car seat--you cannot know its full history and it may have been weakened or damaged in a previous incident or have parts missing.
  • Buy the right car seat for your child's weight--age ranges are just a guideline.
  • Move your child up to the next car seat group when they outgrow their current seat, but don’t be in a rush to do this too soon.
  • Install the seat according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Always use the car seat, even on very short journeys.

Why choose a Britax car seat?

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.

Bought for our son just after his first birthday as he grew out of his first car seat. Was considering getting a seat that took him up to 12yrs but glad we didn't as he still sleeps so much in the car so the recline comes in handy. We done a lot of research and asked around in Mothercare etc. This make came highly recommended for safety, which after all is the whole point. We have to take it in and out of the car and have no trouble doing this. Compared to others in this category it is fairly light, they are all a bit bulky and awkward to carry. I would recommend.

I chose this seat from the many available to be the "second seat" that is the one that's used occasionally. I am so pleased I did. It's spacious, seems very comfortable (my grandaughter sleeps in it very happily)and has the recline feature which not all do. It is easy to fit, easy to recline and the shoulder straps are simple to adjust and tighten and it was less than half the price of the majority of others. All in all I am delighted with my purchase.

This is something that I regularly move from one car to another so I chose it as a seat that can be quickly and easily fitted. It's maybe not the lightest on the market, but it is fine for me or my wife to get in & out of a standard 4 or 5 door car (not tried it in a 3 door, I think it may be a bit bulky for that) so it meets my needs well. I would've given it 5 stars except that the straps need to be perfectly aligned otherwise my son can wriggle out of them a bit too easily

Colour Name: Black Thunder
My little boy, who is 2, can now unclip the main belt and totally get out of the seat. I was driving and all of us a sudden he is in the front seat with me. At first I thought I must have not clipped it in right, but no, tried in the car park, and he can use both thumbs to press down and get out.. So now I am looking for a new one and taking this to the dump.

Very comfortable. I has britax evolva 1-2-3. My boy is 1 year old and was not comfortable in that. I moved to britax eclipse. He sleeps comfortably with recline. Can see out of window. Always buy a group 1 for kids according to their weight and height. Never go for group 123 to save money. They are not comfortable at all for all age groups.
