The Britax Maxi Guard Pro 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 the recommendation would be 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 Pro features Side Impact Cushion Technology (SICT) which provides a 180° layer of protection around your child’s head. The SICT is an extra safety feature added to the Active Head Restraint (AHR) which looks like a helmet inside the frame of the seat and shields and contains your child's head in a side impact crash. The AHR connects with the hassle free harness, allowing you to easily adjust the shoulder strap height from the front of the restraint. The Maxi Guard Pro features SICT around the torso of the seat as well as inside the helmet, providing the most complete protection possible for your child.
The Maxi Guard Pro has stylish Thermo5 high performance fabric with bamboo, which allows for improved breathability and comfort in hot weather. The styling of the Maxi Guard Pro is designed to complement the Millenia or Platinum Pro seats (0-4yrs) and eventually the KidGuard Pro booster seat (4yrs to 10-12yrs).
The entire bamboo fabric cover is able to be quickly and easily removed for machine washing, including the additional padding for smaller children, all without the need to undo and rethread the harness straps. The Maxi Guard Pro also offers an upright or recline position to provide additional comfort for your sleeping child.
The generous internal seating area will accommodate most children up to 8 years old, while plentiful trim padding and shoulder pads allow your child or grandchild to travel in complete comfort. The Maxi Guard Pro also offers pivoting arm rests and dual cup holders, and comes with a bonus full length Messy Mat with handy storage pocket.
