The Crash Tested ClickIt Utility & ClickIt Sport Pet Seat Belts from Sleepypod
Recent studies have prompted new design innovation for dog seat belts. Sleepypod, with 6 years of research on pet travel safety behinds it, has designed the ClickIt Utility & ClickIt Sport seat belt harness for dogs. Its design is unlike any other in that it uses three points of contact to keep your dog in the seat. This design also helps to absorb the force caused by a frontal car accident. The ClickIt Utility & ClickIt Sport have been crash tested using a 75 pound dummy dog and has passed all the safety tests conducted by the Center for Pet Safety. The Center for Pet Safety has deemed this the top safety dog seat belt in their 2013 study. Scroll down to watch the video from Sleepypod and see how the dog stays on the seat.

HOW TO MEASURE - ClickIt Utility
Start on your dog's back between the shoulder blades. Wrap the tape measure around your dog's back. And then with the same tape measure, wrap around your dog's neck. Come back to the shoulder blades. This total measurement in inches is what you need to determine the size of pet seat belt you need. The image below shows how to measure in a figure-8. The video below also gives this demonstration along with how to put the harness on your dog and how to secure him in the car.
HOW IT WORKS
The back seat of your vehicle should have the latch system in place in order for these dog seat belts to work effectively. The latch system should be in the rear seat of all vehicles 2001 and later. What is the latch system? It is the metal rings between the cushions of your seat and is used to secure a baby seat. The above instructional video will show you the step-by-step process.
The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) sets a standard for child safety for which the ClickIt Utility passed using a 75 pound dummy at the speed of 30 miles per hour.
