Unlike typical pet safety harnesses which are one-point in design, Clickit Utility is the world’s first three-point dog safety harness, which earned itself a five star crash test rating.
“Few manufacturers demonstrate the commitment to product safety testing that we have seen from Sleepypod. Theirs is a landmark achievement for pets and the people who love them. Congratulations to the Sleepypod team for this achievement. We hope to see more safety harness manufacturers follow their lead.” Says Lindsey Wolko, founder of Center for Pet Safety.
Clickit Utility’s three points of attachment absorb force in a frontal collision by dissipating energy and keeps the dog in the car seat during impact.
The three-point design not only diminishes the opportunity for collision with parts of the vehicle and passengers, it also reduces the chance for traumatic injuries associated with one-point dog safety harness designs that either catapult a dog’s upper torso forward into anything in it’s path like front seats, passengers, and even windows, or submarine the dog meaning to catapult the dog’s lower torso forward and concentrate the damaging forces onto the dog’s torso or even the neck.
