The Britax Maxi Guard is a forward facing harnessed car seat appropriate for growing children from approximately 6 months to 8 years of age. The age guide of 6 months and up is simply meant to indicate that this seat only faces forwards, rather than an encouragement to put a 6mth old baby forward facing. The law says you must keep your child rear facing for at least 6 months, but preferably 12 months or more.
Continuing to use a 6 point harness for as long as possible keeps your child securely restrained and safer for longer. This means your child remains safely in a harnessed position until the age of 7 or 8, rather than switching to a booster at the age of 4 or 5.
The Maxi Guard features AHR technology - a fully adjustable headrest designed specifically with deep side wings to shield and protect your child's head in a side impact crash. The Easy Adjust Headrest with attached harness straps can be simply and easily moved up or down to suit any sized child, without having to uninstall the seat. This means there is never any need to undo and rethread the harness straps, thereby reducing the risk of potentially harmful misuse. This Easy Adjust feature makes the Maxi Guard the ideal seat for grandparents, because any child from 1 to 8 years will fit in it, and to adjust for the height difference takes quite literally 2 seconds.
The entire fabric cover is able to be quickly and easily removed for machine washing, again without the need to undo and rethread the harness straps. The Maxi Guard also offers an upright or recline position to provide additional comfort for your sleeping child.
Generous trim padding and shoulder pads allow your child or grandchild to travel in complete comfort.
