Sleepypod Click-it Sport harness was named the 2013 Top Performing Pet Safety Harness in a Subaru of America, Inc. and Center for Pet Safety (CPS) collaborative study. The crash test measured the effectiveness of pet harnesses marketed with safety claims. Clickit Sport Dog Safety Harness is the only harness to earn safety certification and a five star rating from the Center for Pet Safety.
The Sleepypod Crash-Tested Sport Car Harness is light and easy to use, without sacrificing safety. Sleepypod rigorously tested Clickit Sport to include the same dynamic crash tests used to test child safety restraints. The Sleepypod Sport Harness is a bit easier to take on and off your dog than the Sleepypod Clickit Harness and can be used as an everyday harness. Both of the Sleepypod Car Safety Harnesses Passed the Subura Crash-Test. The Sleeepypod Sports Harness uses the Infinity Loop design which eliminates the need for strength-rated, steel bulky hardware.
The 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.
The Sport Harness works in all cars containing a three-point lap and shoulder seat belt, it doesn't require the baby safety latch that is under the seats to install. You do not need to purchase any additional seat belt tethers to use this harness in your vehicle appropriately, however many customers do purchase a safety tether to use in conjunction with the harness as an alternate means to secure the dog.

Sizes are determined by chest measurement around a dog's rib cage, just behind the front legs. These harnesses run big, so if you are close between sizes, we always recommend sizing down.
Harness came quick and was easy to adjust. I would highly recommend it. Only 4 stars because of a couple minor issues. The first is when at its smallest adjustments, the extra strap hangs loose. Not a big deal but with my puppy, she can then grab it to chew on. The other thing is, the two rings to attach a leash to are too far apart. When clipping on a leash, it bunches the clasps together making it uncomfortable for the dog. I end up just using a separate collar but it would be nice if I didn't have to.
Follow directions. Comes with pictures you can follow. You can call customer service for more help. They are very helpful. Harness should fit so dog cannot slip out but not too tight.
Once fitted correctly for my Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (ok, maybe a mutt:) the Sleepypod harness allowed her to sit or lay down easily. Prior to using this harness, she tended to jump into the front seat passenger’s lap, not safe. Using the Sleepypod harness seemed to calm her and I know it calmed me! Crossing paws that we never find out about its crash-worthiness.
Fits well and my dog seems comfortable in it.
I followed the directions for fitting the harness-leave 3 fingers worth of space under the harness. My dog HATES being connected to the seat belt and looks completely miserable when he is belted in. It takes him less than ten minutes to wriggle his way out of the harness.
