Sleepypod Harness- Best dog car harness in Center for Pet Safety Testing
Available at Mighty Mite Dog Gear! Great price and free shipping on the harness tested to the safest dog car safety harness on the market!
The Sleepypod Clickit Harness recently underwent and passed testing by the Center for Pet Safety. The "CPS" rated it their top pick for dog safety harnesses. Revolutionary in design, Clickit Utility is the first dog safety harness to incorporate three-points of attachment to absorb force in a frontal collision by dissipating energy and keep the dog in the car seat during an impact.
Clickit Utility is similar in concept to the three-point seatbelt federally required in all vehicles. Straps enclosed in Clickit Utility's broad, padded vest hug the upper torso of a dog to absorb forward movement, while belts anchor the lower torso and reduce forward and lateral movement. The three-point design that secures the dog in its space diminishes the opportunity for collision with parts of the vehicle and passengers, and reduces the chance for traumatic injuries associated with one-point dog safety harness designs that either catapult a dog's upper torso forward into anything in it's path like front seats, passengers, and even windows, or submarine the dog meaning to catapult the dog's lower torso forward into anything in it's path.
Unlike traditional one-point dog safety harnesses, Sleepypod Clickit Utility's unique three-point design reduces damaging forces and keeps the upper and lower torso controlled and restrained. Upon impact, breakaway slide buckles and shoulder adjustment straps are designed to break or slide to decrease damaging forces by decelerating the force while the dog remains restrained by the primary harness structure. The harness structure's primary seat belt webbing and hardware absorb the shifted and decelerated force. In combination, the wide-webbed harness structure and vest promote even distribution of force across the dog's chest to lessen the chance of injury. A combination of tethers and shoulder belts create a synergistic effect to hold the dog securely. All critical safety components were static tensile tested and determined Clickit Utility's strength classification to be superior strength.
The SleepyPod Harness was put through stringent safety tests to include dynamic crash testing and the static tensile testing of all critical safety component; strength classification was determined to be superior strength.
Sleepypod's Clickit Utility's three-point design is intended for use in the rear passenger seat. This three-point application was crash tested in the same frontal crashes that ensure the effectiveness of child safety restraints, the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213.
