There’s no question that the Graco 4ever DLX is a sure winner when it comes to longer usability. Aside from being able to use it as a booster, it offers a “backless mode.”

Despite the presence of 7 recline positions of the Boulevard Clicktight, installing it would need you to utilize pool noodles or rolled towels.

While they are both easy to install, the Boulevard Clicktight is ONLY easy to install and uninstall if you use the seatbelt and not the LATCH.

Graco 4ever DLX is easier to install both using the LATCH and seat belt in all modes as long as you use the correct LATCH path so the length of the straps would actually reach your vehicle’s LATCH.

There’s an extra “safety” feature for the Boulevard Clicktight’s seat harness. When you pull the seat harness to tighten, you’ll hear an audible click to let you know that you are within the proper range of tightness.

Knowing the correct tightness can also be easily done by doing a “pinch test.” To perform the test, simply try to pinch the strap at the collarbone area. If you cannot pinch it, then it’s safe to go. 🙂

Choosing a Boulevard Clicktight seat color for breathability purposes is an easy job since Boulevard Clicktight’s fabrics are not only padded enough but breathable, too.

You’ll have to take note that Graco 4ever DLX's dark colors seem to be made of unbreathable fabrics. The rest of Graco's colors are safe to go.

The Graco 4ever DLX is way lighter than the Boulevard Clicktight.

When washing the seat covers, take note that the Boulevard Clicktight is only good for hand-washing. On the good side, it’s easy to remove the seat cover when you need to wash it.

While the Graco 4ever DLX's seat cover is good for machine wash and also easy to remove, putting the seat cover to the main seat once the seat cover is clean can be time-consuming.

The 4ever DLX has an additional removable head pillow aside from the body pillow. The Boulevard Clicktight only has a body pillow.

You’ll have to purchase a separate cup holder for Boulevard Clicktight whereas the Graco 4ever DLX already comes with 2 cup holders.

conclusion


There’s an approximately USD 80 price difference between the Boulevard Clicktight and Graco 4ever DLX. The Britax Boulevard Clicktight is more expensive.

Now let’s see why it’s more expensive.

  1. It’s made in the USA.
  2. The seat fabrics are all breathable.
  3. It has an added “safety” feature in the seat harness buckling system (i.e. the audible click).

Despite being cheaper, the Graco 4ever DLX has the following advantages over the Boulevard Clicktight.

  1. Can be used until booster (and backless booster mode) - 120 pounds and 57 inches limit instead of just 65 pounds and 49 inches.
  2. You don’t need to use a pool noodle or rolled towel when installing it.
  3. It weighs lighter.
  4. It has a machine-washable seat cover.
  5. It has a head pillow.
  6. It comes with 2 cup holders.

While both seats come with flying colors when it comes to safety ratings, it seems that you’ll get your money’s worth if you choose the Graco 4ever DLX.

Between the two, I’d get the Graco 4ever DLX.*

  1. Hi! I love your website, I’m in the market for a convertible car seat for my 1 1/2 year old. But I am the most indecisive person alive. you seem to have done way more research than I have. Can you please tell me your personal favorites?
    Thank you!

    1. If this helps, I wanna extend rear facing for as long as I can, my car isn’t big, i have a Hyundai. Would prefer one with breathable material and good safety!

      1. Hi Melissa,

        The Diono Radian 3RXT, 3RX, and 3R (My Comparison Review Here) are three of the few car seats that can have a child seated rear-facing for as long as possible. Their narrow profile is also famous for parents with small cars as you can fit three of them in a row. They have FULL steel-reinforced frames which are also the major “safety” factor that parents seem to like. However, other websites seem to give the Radians low crash test ratings.

        My opinion of them is that, as long as you install them correctly in your car, their safety features will do the job should there be an accident. After all, all car seats pass a certain safety standard before they are allowed to be out in the market.

        Think of a car seat with the highest safety ratings (as rated by all websites) BUT not safely installed. It would still not do the job, isn’t it?

        The Clek Foonf (My Review Here), however, can competitively do a better job than the Radians above.

        As for my personal favorites, the Safety 1st Go And Grow (My Review Here ) and the Evenflo Symphony Elite (My Review Here ) top my list. Followed by the Graco 4ever (My Review Here) and Clek Foonf (My Review Here).

        I hope this helps.

        Regards,
        Pitin

         

  2. Hey Pitin,

    It seems to me that Graco 4ever is a great choice as the price is affordable and it possesses many benefits. However, I read on Amazon reviews that it is a challenge to recline it once the baby has fallen asleep. One woman wrote she had to get the belt out to recline the seat. Have you heard about this problem with these car seats? Perhaps there is some other choice you could suggest me?

    1. Hi Arta,

      The recline control of the Graco 4ever car seat can be found on the lower front part of the seat. I can imagine it being hardly accessible once it is firmly pressed against a vehicle’s seat in the rear facing position, however, how often do you need to adjust a recline of a properly installed rear-facing Graco 4ever seat? I think you need to retighten it too should you change the recline since the initial rear-facing tightness was based on the original recline.

      The forward-facing recline is more manageable since the control is more exposed in this mode.

      If an All-In-One car seat is what you’re looking for, I’d suggest you check the Safety 1st Go and Grow and the Evenflo Symphony DLX.

      I have compared them in this review.

      I hope this helps. 🙂

      Regards,

      Pitin

  3. I currently have the Graco in my car that I use for my grandchild and absolutely love it! 

    I had never heard of the pinch test in order to check to see if the straps were tight enough! I will definitely be doing this next time I buckle her in!

    Thank you for this article!

    1. Hi there,

      Glad to know the Graco seat is doing a good job. 🙂 Yes, the pinch test is a must as a properly installed seat will be useless if the little passenger is not safely buckled up.

      Appreciate you for sharing, too!

      Regards,
      Pitin
