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. Not a good fit

    Posted by Katie Kirby on 7th Dec 2014

    I am actually planning to return the harness. Because of the metal buckles, which do seem very secure, it's a bit heavy. Also, while the chest strap fits, the neck part doesn't fit. I've adjusted it to as small as it can be, but it's too loose on her.


  2. Great harness

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Nov 2014

    This is a great harness that actually fits my 135lb Cane Corso pretty well - it's maxed out, but it fits. I bought online because no stores carry the X-L and was worried about the fit, but it's OK. I've had it for a few months now and my dog wears it every time he gets in the truck. It does shift and rotate more than I would like, but it seems incredibly sturdy both in and out of the car. The easy buckles make putting it on and taking it off much easier than other harnesses, since harness means car ride, and car ride means lots of excitement. Overall, very happy with the product and the price.


  3. Front ring broke in the first hour of use

    Posted by Bob on 27th Oct 2014

    The front d-ring used to connect a leash broke in the first hour of use. Left two messages for service and got a message both times that my call would be returned in two business days.

    Never heard anything back nor do I have time or desire to try a third call.

    Rest of the harness is great.

    Kurgo Note: We are very sorry to hear about your problem with this harness. This definitely sounds like it qualifies for the Lifetime Warranty program. We apologize for not returning your call promptly. Please email us at info@kurgo.com and we will take care of this right away.


  4. Amazing product backed up by incredible service

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Oct 2014

    My dog is still a puppy, just over a year old, and when we used to drive places, he would constantly pace across the back seat and cry while trying to get up front with me. We had a big drive (10 hours!) coming up, and I was worried he would distract me or get hurt if there was an accident, so I looked into this. At first, I ordered the adventure harness, but because my dog is so tall but slender, the large was way too big. Then when I sent it back to exchange for the medium, the medium was way too small. I called Kurgo, and Jo-Ann recommended the tru-fit harness and helped us through the whole process. She was super friendly and helpful and I was really pleased.

    My dog loves his harness, and sits nicely to put it on. The front loop makes it easy to train him on the leash, because pulling is uncomfortable. He sits in the car now like a model citizen and almost seems more comfortable knowing he's strapped in. Best of all, I could rest easy knowing he was all set for our road trip! Thanks Kurgo!


  5. Excellent value and service

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Aug 2014

    The harness was purchased on line. The value and service was excellent!
    Excellent fit. Great value great quality. Very much recommended!


  6. Riding in Style

    Posted by Alan on 8th Aug 2014

    These harnesses are just outstanding. Great material, great design, and they do just what they are advertised to do, and do it well ... Love the nesting buckles, and you will too, after a little "break-in" period (for you) while you perfect your technique. Simple and elegant to use. After just a few outings our dogs now get excited when we get the harnesses and raise their heads to put them on. .... We initially thought we would use the harnesses only in the auto, but now we leave them on in on-leash venues (regular or e- collars can be left on while using the harnesses). They are comfortable and unobtrusive and our dogs quickly got used to them .... The harnesses work great with the Zipline/leash and Seatbelt tether, allowing many variations to tailor length, etc. Our dogs now ride in safety and style, and we do, too. The system allows us to give them ample roaming area in our SUV, but not too much. Heading for a vacation with our doggies in the Outer Banks in September; this system is just what we needed, and we just ordered a 2nd Zip. .... The Carabiners are strong, and elegant, too, and add further versatility; the system is VERY cost-worthy; and the Large harness tailors easily to our "rangy" 60 & 65 lb. dogs --- the size descriptions seem right on. Kurgo is a great "find".


  7. Mixed Feelings

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Jul 2014

    The material is very good and sturdy however I purchased the small which fits the weight of my dog she is a 20lbs Chinese Crested Powderpuff but it seems to move on her. The way this harness tightens is a little bit difficult but eventually you get the hang of it. It fits kind of loose. I don't want to tighten it too much because as it is she does not like it although I am treating her to get it on. In addition you can not tighten too much because you need space to put your fingers in when putting the harness on. When I hook her up in the car the harness moves sideways. I do believe it is a good product but I feel that the portion that goes around her belly is not far enough back to be able to stay put. I like it because of it's dual purpose of being able to walk her and use it as a safety harness as well but the fit is dubious. The top adjusters also don't have anywhere to go and so once you make it smaller there is not where for that material to go it does not remain flush to the body as the pictures displays. I will continue using it and begin to tighten it a little more as I go along and she gets used to it. It was a good deal for the money also. I saw all the others and they were really expensive. I like the fact that there is a video about how to put on the harness and attach to the car. That was sent later via my Youtube. That was very thoughtful of them and informative.


  8. pups first harness!

    Posted by Meggie on 14th Jul 2014

    I bought this harness while I was over seas. When I got home to meet my families new addition I was shocked how well it fit her. It also came with a lovely car restrain and I was so happy to not only feel safer with her, but that it was a great product sold all over the world. Its been almost a year, and it still is in perfect condition!


  9. our new harness

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jul 2014

    I like this harness it stays in place and go and off esily


  10. A Perfect Fit

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Jul 2014

    Buddy is an English Springer Spaniel that needs to be walked using a harness. I've had a difficult time finding a good fit. This Tru-Fit Harness is wonderful. It has plenty of adjustments, so getting a good fit was easy. I also like that it can double as a restraint in the car.
