Kurgo’s Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness with Steel Nesting Buckles

Kurgo’s Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness has all the features of our standard harness, with the added benefit of Kurgo’s innovative Nesting Buckles. The all-steel Nesting Buckle system is based on the time-tested harnesses of rock climbers and linesmen. The Nesting Buckles take a minute to learn, but are very easy to use. If you make frequent trips in the car with your dog and are looking for a crash-tested harness for him, this is the harness to get.

The harness is quick and easy to put on; simply slip it over your dog’s head and then clip it around the midsection. The five different adjustments provide nearly a custom fit, and the chest pad makes sure that even if Fido misbehaves on the walk or in the car he can be controlled. Available in black or red.

  • Protects dogs, drivers and passengers on the road
  • Broad, padded chest plate for extra protection and comfort
  • Can be safely used with any vehicle seat belt or the Kurgo Auto Zip Line
  • Includes a seat-belt loop
  • Functions as an auto or walking harness
  • Five adjustment points for a perfect fit on all shapes and sizes
  • All-metal hardware
  • Crash tested 

Testing Procedure (View video in 'Videos' tab above):

The Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness with steel Nesting Buckles has been tested in three ways. It has been tensile strength tested, dynamically tested using a static line test and finally crash tested using a sled test. The harness is designed as a safety harness, not a converted walking harness. The design, construction and testing provide the best protection while riding, turning, and stopping and in extreme situations.

The videos below depict a 35lb dog traveling at 30 miles per hour, recorded at an accredited University test facility. The unrestrained black and white dog is for comparison purposes, these are toy dogs weighted for the test - no animals were used in this video. The top video shows the force from the side angle while the bottom video shows the aerial view. Double click to replay the videos.

Double click to replay the videos.Kurgo's Perspective on Traveling Safely with Your DogKurgo's first pet product was the Back Seat Barrier, which was created by Kitter Spater to keep his Plott hound Zelda from distracting him by coming into the front seat of the car. Since the launch of the Back Seat Barrier, Kitter, one of the owners of the company and its head designer, has endeavored to find a range of ways to make it easy and safe for dogs and their owners to travel together.The focus of this product development effort has been on the 84% of dog owners who currently do not restrain their dogs while driving. We want to provide simple-to-use solutions that will minimize the distraction a dog can cause in the car. It is our opinion that the most important safety component in a vehicle is the active, focused driver; in many cases, avoiding distraction means avoiding an accident.Concurrently, Kitter and the Kurgo team have been working to develop products for the 16% of dog owners who are already restraining their dog, as well as anyone who makes frequent car trips with their dog and wants extra protection in the event of an accident. These products are designed not only to minimize driver distraction, but also to help protect drivers, passengers, and dogs from injury in the event of a crash. There is no industry or government standard for testing the safety of pet restraints in vehicles, so we looked to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard for child restraint systems (FMVSS 213) and determined that we would also use 30 miles per hour as our testing standard. Over a period of years, Kurgo has worked to develop and test its Enhanced Strength line of products, which can withstand crashes of up to 30 MPH.As a result of these years of research and design, we are now pleased to offer our customers two categories of products based on their individual needs: Our standard line of products is made with extremely high-quality materials and designed for ease of use. These products help drivers avoid the distraction a moving dog can cause in a vehicle. With the growing application of distracted driving laws to people driving with dogs in the car, these products can help dog owners ensure they are in compliance with their state's laws. Our standard line includes items such as the Back Seat Barrier, the Tru-Fit Smart Harness with plastic Quick Release Buckles, the Auto Zip Line and the Wander Hammock. Our Enhanced Strength line of products takes safety to the next level. Like the items in our standard line, these products avoid driver distraction, but they have additionally been subjected to a range of tests to ensure that dogs do not become projectiles in a car accident, including dynamic testing for up to a 55-lb. dog in a 30 MPH crash. The keystone of this line is our Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness with innovative Nesting Buckles. The all-steel Nesting Buckle system is based on the time-tested harnesses of rock climbers and linesmen. It takes a minute or two at the outset to learn to fasten these buckles, but once you've learned they are very easy to use, and they provide additional strength in the event of a collision. For the consumer who wants a crash-tested harness, this is the one to get. When the Skybox Booster Seat or the K9 Courier Bag are used together with the Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness, these products also meet our crash-test standards and thus can be used as part of the Enhanced Strength line. For videos of the Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness being crash tested, as well as detailed documentation of this and another test, please see the product page. Kurgo's mission is to encourage people and their dogs to get out and enjoy the world together. With our standard and Enhanced Strength lines, dog owners can choose the products that best meet their needs, making this simple pleasure easy and safe.

  1. Great Fit

    Posted by Glenn on 12th Apr 2014

    This harness has a great fit, she can't chew it off like the other harnesses I have purchased. Also the harness allows her to walk freely with out rubbing under the leg area.


  2. Great product!

    Posted by Kent on 30th Mar 2014

    I purchased this harness to keep my Lab pup under control in my truck and it works great! Very well made and strong.


  3. Great product

    Posted by Jim on 24th Mar 2014

    fits well and keeps the kids on their own side of the back seat.


  4. Safe happy dog makes for a happy mom

    Posted by Sharon on 22nd Mar 2014

    We love our enhanced strength harness. Our dog used to whine in the back of the van in his kennel. Now he jumps in to the van whenever the door is open just hoping to be able to go where ever we are going. He is comfortable and happy sitting between the kids on short or long rides. I know that he is safe and secure and that makes all of the difference. We had were t-boned a while back by a distracted driver. I know how important it is for everyone to be safely buckled in to their seats. Now every member of the family is as safe as they can be.

    The harness is easy to put on and easy to adjust. It makes walking and training easier too. All in all I could not ask for more. Thank you for this product it was just what we were looking for and the price was really reasonable.


  5. Great Harness - Car & Walking

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Mar 2014

    A friend's experience of being rear ended with her dog in the back seat
    (and then on the dashboard, and then on the floor) made me think. My dogs
    have good car manners and stay in their "spot" in the back, but even the
    best training won't keep your dog safe in an accident. I tried several
    different types of dog seat belts before settling on the Kurgo Tru-Fit
    Smart Harness. Here's what makes it different from the others I tried.

    *1. Safety tested and secure.* It's not just a walking harness with a seat
    belt clip. This thing is extremely well made, with quality hardware and a
    comfortable, padded chest panel designed to restrain a dog without undue
    stress on the body. There are two options for placing the chest strap where
    it won't rub under their arms.

    *2. Easy to get on and off* - so it's no hassle to actually USE it. It has
    multiple adjustment points so you can size it to fit your dog just right,
    and then just slip it over her head and fasten the buckles.

    *3. Doubles as a regular walking harness.* You can attach the leash at the
    back or the chest, which is great if your dog pulls while walking. Some of
    the other car harnesses I looked at had heavy, complicated hardware or
    overlapping panels to secure the harness on the dog or into the car. Fine
    for sitting in the car, maybe, but awkward anywhere else. The Kurgo harness
    is so comfortable and versatile we use it as our go-to harness even when
    we're not going to be in the car.


  6. Well Made Useful Product

    Posted by Tracey Z on 28th Feb 2014

    We love our new harness and tether system for our crazy standard poodle. She is doing much better riding in the car without running all over. The harness and tether are well made and fit our dog well. Thank you for a great product


  7. Top Quality

    Posted by Michelle on 25th Feb 2014

    This is a really great harness. Love the fact that my young pup is safe when we go on rides. Plus,it's a joy walking him it in it and it's so easy to use, not bulky like I thought it would be.


  8. Great product!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Feb 2014

    Very sturdy & high quality, and it fits true to measurements. A little tricky to figure out & tighten though.


  9. Great harness - will be a 5 when my puppy is bigger because it is a bit too big now!

    Posted by Susan on 19th Feb 2014

    As many have said, the harness takes some getting used to - putting the buckles into the straps correctly. But it is worth learning how and not allowing yourself to get frustrated in your effort to put the harness on quickly. It is great having a D-ring on the front and the back - and being able to use this harness to tether my dog in the car, and then take him out and walk him. The harness is well made, the straps are all banded (no loose curly-Qs) and it looks very "handsome" on my dog. But most of all is the safety factor. No plastic straps here. Good job, Kurgo. BTW - The Amazon item like this does NOT have the D-ring on both sides according to the picture. So buy from Kurgo directly!


  10. Love this product!

    Posted by Sarah B. on 10th Feb 2014

    I love this harness! It lives up to the description! I am happy knowing that my dog is safe and can ride with me in the car any time! Give it a 2 paws up!
