Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Sleepypod® today introduces Clickit Sport, its next generation dog safety harness. A new design makes it light and easy to use, without sacrificing safety. Visually intuitive, Clickit Sport is packed with state of the art technology that is the result of a dedicated 2½-year engineering effort by Sleepypod’s design team. Clickit Sport was then rigorously tested to include the same dynamic crash testing that ensures the performance of child safety restraints.
“What makes Clickit Sport so amazing and special is its light weight and ease of use,” says Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. “Less hardware makes Clickit Sport even easier to connect and quicker to release.”
A patent pending Infinity Loop design eliminates the need for strength-rated, steel hardware. This Infinity Loop webbing design, in combination with a padded vest, work together to distribute and reduce damaging forces that can cause injury. Like Clickit Utility, Clickit Sport comes with three points of contact for the most advanced pet safety restraint technology. The three points of contact reduce forward and lateral movement in the event of a collision or sudden stop, protecting a pet that can become a deadly missile that potentially endangers human passengers.
Clickit Sport accommodates a larger range of dog sizes with its design. The sizing and measurement is different from Clickit Utility. Available in small, medium and large sizes, these sizes are determined by chest measurement. An extra large harness is undergoing final safety tests, and Sleepypod plans to offer this harness before the end of the year.
Clickit Sport even adapts to the everyday needs of your pet. When outside of the car, it can be used as a walking harness. Also, reflector strips have been added to improve its visibility at night.
“Sleepypod has been dedicated to pet safety in autos since 2007, testing components and designs to high safety standards before offering them to customers,” says Leung. “First with Clickit Utility and now with Clickit Sport, we have two pet safety harness lines that make car traveling with your canines worry-free.”

Pet Passenger Restraint System
Sleepypod dog harnesses and pet carriers use Pet Passenger Restraint System™ (PPRS) technology. PPRS is a safety system designed to securely fasten pets in automobile seats during a collision or sudden stop. Each PPRS is put through stringent safety tests to include static tensile testing and dynamic crash testing. Sleepypod PPRS offers a significantly safer way to travel for pets and their human travel companions traveling by auto. PPRS is part of the Sleepypod Safety program that requires each Sleepypod product meet the highest standards for safety in order to reduce pet exposure to possible hazards.
