Britax G4 series $ to RF 5-40lbs FF 22-65lbs G4 series requires use of Versa-Tether in rear facing position - Swedish method: using the included D-ring to create a tether point (dependant on vehicle manufacturer) - Aussie method: the tether strap runs around the top edge of the shell and connects to the designated forward-facing tether anchor point for the seating position being used
G4 Rear Facing Tethering Why do G4 infant-child car seats require tethering rear-facing? In order to further enhance the margin of safety beyond the regulatory requirements, Britax is now requiring RF tethering with the G4 infant-child seats. Tethering a car seat rear-facing is an option and does manage rotation and energy in a crash. Britax is also working on an option that would be more convenient for the caregiver. Will retroactive rear-face tethering be required on the G3 Infant-Child seats? Retroactive tethering will NOT be required for any Britax G3 infant-child seats. Is this mandatory on the U.S. G4 seats, or just Canadian seats? This is mandatory for Canadian G4 infant-child seats only, as the U.S. does not have a regulation for testing rebound limitations. Do we have to use a vehicle manufacturer's authorized anchor point? If a vehicle manufacturer does not support the Swedish method of rear facing tethering, the option to tether Australian method is available. Any difficulties getting the child in and out with the Australian method can be overcome by loosening and retightening the tether. Installation of the car seat on the passenger side provides the easiest access to the tether adjuster.

Britax “ClickTight” technology The ClickTight system components are located on the lower portion of the seat, where the child’s lower back makes contact with the seat Installing a seat that features ClickTight alleviates both the confusion and stress that may come along with installing your child’s car seat.
