“Our research has returned findings that XL dogs can cause significant strain on the vehicle seat belt system. Meeting the 90 lb. crash protection level is a significant achievement.”

The Center for Pet Safety, the 501(c)(3) research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to consumer and companion animal safety, has awarded the Sleepypod Clickit Sport Harness with the first 5 Star Crash Test Rating in the XL 90 lb. category. The Clickit Sport Harness is the first product to achieve this landmark rating in S, M, L, and XL categories.

In July 2014 Center for Pet Safety published their Crash Test Protocol and Rating Guideline to grade crash protection of pet travel harnesses. As the first scientific approach to pet product safety in the U.S. market, the Safety Harness Crash Test Protocol and Rating system provides essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2013 Harness Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety, outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet safety harness restraints offer crash protection.

“The test evidence indicates that Sleepypod has completed ample research and development on their Clickit Sport line of harnesses to achieve the highest crash test rating from Center for Pet Safety” stated Lindsey Wolko, the non-­‐profit organization’s founder. “Our research has returned findings that XL dogs can cause significant strain on the vehicle seat belt system. Meeting the 90 lb. crash protection level is a significant achievement.”
