With this automatic safety belt you will buckle your dog in the backseat as quickly and easily as you would your own seat belt. Just click the metal tongue into the car’s buckle clasp and clip the metal snap fastener to your dog’s harness – and your dog is not only secured but it can travel far more comfortably than it would in a confined transport box. Also ideal on long trips: The belt automatically extends and retracts and has a range between 10" and 27 1⁄2" which gives your dog ample space to stretch.
The rapid-action mechanism locks instantly in the event of a sudden braking manoeuvre. So your dog will remain on the backseat unharmed and without it becoming a potential risk to you – safely restrained by the 4.7cm (2") wide belt. Which will not rip thanks to the 1.2mm thick polyester fabric.
Fasteners and mechanism in solid metal. Cover made from robust and easy-to-wipe black plastic. Measures 9 x 6.5cm (3 1⁄2" x 2 1⁄2") when retracted. Belt range 25 to 70cm (10" to 27 1⁄2"). Weighs ca. 730g (1.6 lbs).
It’s really important to secure dogs properly in cars.
The German motoring association’s (ADAC) crash test with shocking results: “An unsecured dog dummy weighing 22kg (48 lbs) and sitting on the parcel shelf was thrown forwards at a speed of 50km/h (31 mph) and impacted the driver’s seat and headrest from behind with a force of around 25 times its own weight. It’s head hit the side of the driver’s head and the dog
continued forwards until it crashed into the windscreen. The force of impact was the equivalent of more than 500kg (1,100 lbs).” www.adac.de, Crash Test ‘Waldi als Beifahrer’ (‘Driving with Fido’) (18.1.2011)
