Clek Oobr Review Facts

Clek isn’t a brand that gets as much attention as some of the other ones, which is too bad because they offer some high-quality car seats. In fact, they have rear-facing car seats that are some of the highest-rated on the market right now.

However, if your child is bigger and is in need of a booster seat, then the Clek Oobr might be a good choice. It can be used both in the high-back and the backless modes, which means that your child will be able to use the seat for a longer period of time. It’s comfortable and the seat reclines, providing your child with extra comfort in the car. The wideness of the seat means that your growing child will still be comfortable when they get bigger.

And, this is the first car seat company to create seats that have a structure entirely made out of metal. This makes the seat a lot more durable and more likely to last longer. Besides that, of course, is the number of safety features that this booster seat will provide your child. In all, there’s a lot to like and many things that parents commended about this Clek product.

Read on to find out more about the features offered in the Clek Oobr booster seat.

The first thing that we need to talk about when discussing the features of any car seat is the size limit it can accommodate. The seat can be used both in the high-back mode and the backless mode, which means that you will be able to use it for a longer period of time. If your child is between 33 and 100 pounds and between 38 and 57 inches tall, they can use the seat in the high-back booster mode. And if they're between 40 and 100 pounds and 40 to 57 inches tall, then they can use it in the backless mode. It’s typically recommended by manufacturers that you start to use such seats when your child is older than four years old.

The seat is also available in a variety of colors, which makes it even more attractive for children who will want the option of choosing what color car seat they have. These include mammoth, shadow, slate, thunder, capri, drift, capri white, flamingo, and cloud. Most of these are gray, black, blue, or pink, and the seat is either black or white. There are also choices for different fabrics, including standard or tailored Crypton, merino wool, or Tokidoki. These are stain-resistant and they also absorb moisture to help keep your child cool and dry while going out. Another great thing about the seats cushioning is that it can be washed and it is easy to spot clean if necessary.

We will go into the safety features more so later on in the article, but it has been rated one of the safest on the market for many years. It also expires after nine years, which is a much longer period of time than many other booster seats have to offer.

Another feature that many parents liked was the fact that the seat can recline, which means that long car rides are going to be more pleasant for your child.


The one thing that might cause issues for some people is the size. If you are someone who has a smaller car, then this is something you may want to think about, despite the fact that many claim the seat is great for use in smaller cars. The seat is wide, which means that your child will be able to grow into it, but it also means that you might have some trouble fitting the seat into your car. The main issue that parents had with it is that the seat sometimes caused problems when they wanted to access the seat belt. And if you have more than one child who needs to use a booster seat, then this could especially cause some issues. The size dimensions are 16 x 17 x 28 inches.

Of course, there were many people who did not have problems with the size of the seat and especially liked the fact that the bottom was so wide because it meant that their child would have plenty of room to grow into the seat. It’s probably best that you measure the back seat of your car regardless of what car seat you choose to purchase so that you can avoid running into any potential issues.

Ease of Use

The seat is also known for being easy to use and to install in your car. The booster seat without the back is even easier and should only take you a matter of seconds. It’s also simple to convert from the high-back to the backless modes. The LATCH system will attach to your car easily and you won’t have to tighten it at all. You can adjust the headrest and recline the seat easily, too. It’s also not difficult to clean in the instance where your child has a spill or an accident.


Car seats do not typically come with any accessories because you will already have everything that you need with the seat itself. And, there are some accessories out there that have not been tested for safety, so companies don’t necessarily recommend that you use those. However, there have been some suggestions for use with the Clek Oobr. For one, you can choose to purchase a cup holder- referred to by the brand as a ‘drink-thingy.’ It attaches easily to the bottom of the car seat so your child can have the added convenience of storing their drink or anything else that would fit.

And, as with many other seats, you have the option of purchasing a seat protector. This is highly recommended due to the fact that it protects the back seat of your car. It’s inevitable that your child will have spills and accidents at some point, and it’s much easier to clean a seat protector than it is to clean a back seat.

There is also a kit that includes a fabric cleaning solution and a scrub brush for when your child has accidents and a travel bag that you can store your child’s belongings in when going on long road trips.


Safety is perhaps the most important feature when it comes to car seats, so you’ll be happy to know that this Clek seat is one of the safest ones out there. It has been considered one of the safest seats out there by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for nine years in a row, so that tells you something. There is extra padding all around to provide impact safety no matter where the collision occurs. The seat had better results when tested with a crash test dummy than many other seats on the market.


There were some people who had issues with the seat’s comfort, but overall, it is fitted with many features to ensure that your child will be as comfortable as possible. In addition to the added safety, having a seat with extra padding will also increase its overall comfort. There is extra padding on the headrest, for example, to make sure that your child’s head will be comfortable as they take a nap. The armrests also have extra padding for this comfort too.

The back of the seat reclines in 12 degrees, meaning that long car rides won’t be as much of a problem anymore. There are also different options for you to choose from in terms of fabric material, which means that there are also options for more comfort. People also liked the fact that the seat bottom is rather wide because this means your child will be able to grow into it more and will have more room to be comfortable.


One area where some people had issues with the seat was when it came to its weight. Of course, if you take into consideration the fact that the seat’s substructure is completely made out of metal, it should come to no surprise that the seat might be heavier than some of its competitors. The seat weighs 20 pounds, which isn’t too bad for metal. Also, if your child is using this seat, he or she is big enough to not need their car seat outside of the car, which means that you won’t have to worry too much about transporting it from place to place.


The price is one of the negative features of this product. It’s not really budget-friendly, which might not be so appealing to families who can’t afford to spend hundreds of dollars on their child’s car seat. The retail price is $300, but you will be able to purchase it for $200 on Amazon.

Of course, there are several things that you may want to keep in mind. For one, this is a seat that you will be using for at least four years, so it’s not like your child won’t be getting enough use out of it. The seat also has all the necessary safety features and was one of the highest-ranked in several safety tests. You are also paying for the metal frame; this is the first brand out there that has created a car seat entirely made out of metal, which means that it will be a lot more durable than some of the other options out there. Of course, it’s up to you how much money you choose to spend on a car seat, but these are some things to consider if the price scared you.

Bottom Line

There were plenty of features that people liked and disliked about this car seat. For one, the fact that it can be used with or without the back makes it something that you will be able to use for a longer period of time. The seat also has plenty of features that will add to its comfort, including a wider seat, extra padding all around, and a reclining back for the high-back mode.

And for those concerned about safety features, you have absolutely nothing to worry about; this seat has passed many safety tests and has been considered one of the safest seats on the market for over nine years. It’s also the first brand that has made a seat that has a structure entirely made out of metal, which makes it a lot sturdier and more durable. The seat bottom is fairly narrow for cars, according to some parents, which means that you won’t have too many issues fitting it inside your car.

The only features that some people had worries about were its weight and its price. The seat is, admittedly, one of the heaviest out there and it also has a high price tag. Since Clek is known for the many innovations it includes for its car seats, it’s no wonder that the seat is a bit pricier than some of the other booster seats available out there. And the entirely metal frame certainly contributes to the heavy weight of the seat.

Overall, the Clek Oobr booster seat is considered to be a good choice for a car seat according to lots of parents. There are some features that you will want to sit down and think about, such as how much you’re willing to spend on a car seat and whether or not weight is important to you. Otherwise, it’s certainly an option that you can consider on your hunt for a good booster seat.
