Britax Maxi Lite Convertible Booster

Britax Maxi Lite Summary - From a safety perspective; a fully harnessed seat is much safer than using a booster with a lap sash seat belt. It is for this reason alone; we cannot recommend convertible boosters; however on a budget it sometimes may be the only choice.

The Britax Maxi Lite is a convertible booster seat; which will keep your child harnessed from roughly 12 months of age. The seat then converts to a booster seat from at least 4 years of age.

Safe n Sound Compaq AHR Carseat coming to stores soon

Safe n Sound are releasing the new Compaq AHR to baby shops shortly. For many years, the number of Australian parents buying smaller cars; is on the increase despite the number of people buying 4wd and SUV's seemingly to also be on the increase. A result of this is that Safe Compaq (Britax) are redesigning carseat to fit smaller cars.


The new Britax Compaq AHR; now features Britax’s unique Active Head Restraint (AHR); which assists to protect your baby’s head in the case of a side impact. The addition of the AHR increases energy absorption in a side impact crash by as much as 25%.

The new Safe n Sound Compaq AHR has a smaller footprint; which reduces the rear facing installed seat depth by 15mm.


Some of the key features of the Britax Compaq AHR carseat include:

  1. Active Head Restraint (AHR™) – provides head protection as your child grows.
  2. Easy Adjust Harness - no need to take the car seat out of the car; to rethread the harness as the child is growing; helping to reduce the likelihood of installing the carseat incorrectly.
  3. A new push button to adjust the Easy Adjust Harness from the front of the seat.
  4. The large side wings are EPS lined; and have been constructed to contain and protect your child’s head in a side impact crash.
  5. The Safe-n-Sound Compaq AHR is ideal for cars that are smaller internally in width. Families with 3 children across the back seat (all in car seats) will benefit from the new slimcompaq AHR design.
  6. The narrow external width allows for better access to seat belt buckles, making it easier to install the carseat.
  7. EZ-Buckle system keeps the harness buckle in a forward positio; and prevents your child from sitting on the buckle when getting in.
  8. Suitable for children from birth to 12 months – rearward facing; then from 12 months to approx 4 years of age – forward facing.

The new Safe n Sound (Britax) Compaq AHR Carseat is available in 4 colours – Blue, Black, Grey and Cool Berry
