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.
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.

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.

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!

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.

I wanted a harness that was crash tested, one that was part of a system that would keep her from wanting to crawl into the front over the consul where she could hurt herself, but still give her the freedom to move around the back, and that could double as a walking harness as well as a car harness that she could grow into. This was it and it is great. It came quickly even to Canada. I am very pleased.

We have a very active chocolate lab pup! The vet recommended a seat belt harness since he kept crawling over the backseat all over the driver while the truck was in motion. No more problems! He took to it from the very first trip. Since we have the Wander Hammock, we use the 'Direct to seat belt tether'.

My animal companion is part of my family and I feel he needs to be protected while riding in the car. I wear a seat belt for safety and so should he. This product has been crash tested so I feel confident it's a safe product.

Received the product on time. Product is of good quality and works as advertised. We did have one snafu with our pup with the harness attached to the seatbelt down low. She wiggled around and got her hind leg in the loop and she required assistance to get out of it. Now we use it so that the loop is up high and it works great! I believe it was just pup personality and behavior that caused her to get tangled the product functioned as designed.

I bought this to keep my 60 pound Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd in the back seat of a 2 door Honda (otherwise she would try to wiggle between the seats to get on my lap while I'm driving). I also got the seat belt buckle tether. Perfect. She likes to sit on the floor rather than on the seat and the tether is long enough so that she can lie down but not long enough that she can get to me. I use the original seat belt loop as a short leash for when we are in crowds. It's much more sturdy than any other harness I looked at before I decided to go with this one. I've had many people ask me about the harness and where to get one. Excellent delivery to Canada. Thank you!

We finally found a safe and comfortable harness for our 8 month old puppy. It's well constructed and easy to use. We were impressed with its safety record and affordable price. Delivery to Canada was less than 4 days. Very impressive!
