Sleepypod Pet Safety Harness Successfully Tested


Published:

 

Sleepypod crash tested its Clickit Terrain car safety harness for dogs at U.S. and Canadian safety standards for child restraint systems. The safety standards include speed, test bench and crash pulse. The American and Canadian safety standards are very similar with small differences involving belt and bench position.

 

“Sleepypod is the first pet product manufacturer to test its pet seat belts at U.S. and Canadian safety standards for child restraint systems with successful results,” says Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. “In each test, the Clickit Terrain safety harness kept the crash test dog from accelerating forward and leaving the test bench while controlling rotation.”

Sleepypod tested the Clickit Terrain safety harness using DUKE 2.0, Sleepypod’s proprietary crash test dog weighing 75 pounds. Find more information about DUKE 2.0, check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb210V0_on8.
