Advocate ClickTight:

or verifying the model number and date of manufacture (DOM) as follows:


  1. Look for the DOM Label: The DOM label is located under the cover to the right of the ClickTight dial.
  2. Look for the model numbers and date range listed in the chart above.
  3. If your product is included, carefully read and follow the detailed instructions included in the remedy kit.

Consumers can continue to safely use their ClickTight convertible car seat as long as the shoulder harness straps remain tensioned. To check this, consumers should place the child in the seat and tighten the harness as usual, then pull firmly on the shoulder harnesses to confirm that they remain secure over the child’s shoulders.

Note: Continued usage of the ClickTight car seats will not cause the recalled condition in the harness adjuster buttons to develop.  If, however, during the strap pull test the shoulder harness straps do loosen, Britax and Transport Canada recommend that you discontinue use of the product until the lubricant has been applied to the harness adjuster button (red).   If you have any questions, contact our Customer Service Department at 1-888-427-4829 and press 3 or email
