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. 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.


  2. 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!


  3. our new harness

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jul 2014

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


  4. 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.


  5. Perfect for my Vehicle and Pup

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jun 2014

    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.


  6. Active Puppy Tamer

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jun 2014

    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'.


  7. Safest harness available

    Posted by Renee on 25th May 2014

    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.


  8. Great product

    Posted by Dez on 12th May 2014

    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.


  9. Terrific product

    Posted by Unknown on 9th May 2014

    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!


  10. Safety Matters

    Posted by Claudia on 9th May 2014

    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!
