Sleepypod Presents Crash Test Results


Published:

 

Sleepypod performed crash tests to assess the effectiveness of its Clickit Terrain car safety harness in restraining a pet while in a side lounging position. 

 

Previous crash test research by Sleepypod, using its proprietary DUKE line of crash test dogs, was performed with the crash test dog in a seated position. These earlier tests demonstrated the Clickit Terrain safety harness was successful in achieving Sleepypod’s criteria of keeping the crash test dog on the seat bench for the duration of the test while controlling rotation of the pet.

 

Tests performed by a 45 lb. version of Sleepypod’s newest crash test dog, SCOUT 1.0, demonstrated the Clickit Terrain safety harness was also successful in achieving Sleepypod’s criteria of keeping the crash test dog on the seat bench for the duration of the test while controlling rotation.

 

“Sleepypod is committed to building on its research of pet safety in vehicles,” said Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. “By testing Sleepypod pet safety restraints using Sleepypod’s proprietary family of crash test pets, Sleepypod is better able to create safer, more reliable restraint designs. Sleepypod looks forward to sharing additional car safety research at a future date.”
