We love the Kurgo bench seat protectors, but one design flaw is that we haven't been able to use our middle (shoulder) seat belt since installing it. Day-to day this isn't a problem, as we have one child and one dog, so two seat belts suffice. However, each time we had another passenger, we've had to peel back the seat protector to expose the extra seat belt. Now that we have the direct to seat belt tether, we can buckle up Buster in the middle, and human passengers can ride on either side. It's much handier, and he gets to snuggle between his favourite people.

The Kurgo Seat Belt Tether is just super. Great material and great design, as is the case for our other Kurgo products. One of our doggies (65 lbs) likes to ride curled up in one back seat of our SUV on shorter rides and the Tether works great and is super easy to use. Just clip it in the seat belt (or leave it clipped in as we usually do) and clip the carabiner into the harness (the tether fits hand-in-glove with the TFSH-3055 harness) and you're all set. It gives her a nice, though limited, range of movement which is maximal given the consideration of safely protecting/stopping her in the event of sudden braking or an accident. The Tether is, for us and for her, a nice complement to the Zip Line Leash Combo which we use for long rides and trips, to give her space to stretch her legs and move around. She loves our new Kurgo "system".

Easy to use but dog keeps getting wrapped around it!
Kurgo Note: You might consider trying the Swivel Tether which allows the carbiner to swivel as the dog turns around and prevents this from happening.

I purchased this along with the swivel tether and use them together with the Tru-Fit heavy duty harness. What a great combination, recommend it be sold as a package. Clipped into the center seat belt receiver of my 2012 Passat perfectly. Top quality workmanship, believe it will last as long as the seat belts in the car built by VW.

I got two harnesses and they work really well. I would suggest a couple of modifications which others have also suggested. The carabiner on the end is extremely large....it makes it extremely difficult to connect to the standard ring on the dog collar. Also, a swivel is definitely necessary. I realize that a swivel is available in your store, but it costs almost the same as a harness. Substituting a standard swivel clip from the end of a dog leash in place of the carabiner would make this product perfect.

Works great keeping my puppy in place. Also easy to move to another car, if necessary

I really like this tether, but it needs a swivel. In a different review Kurgo says they have a swivel tether, but it's not the one that clips to the seatbelt buckle.
BEWARE, in my F-250 my Wheaten was stepping on the release button, and then the spring loaded buckle pops the tether out. Had to put a double piece of duct tape over the button, which solved the problem. It also doesn't fit my rear seat middle buckle, but some filing looks like it would fix that.

The Direct to Seat belt Tether is a very good product for back seat use to keep my Sheltie in place. A little more shortening adjustment would be nice as my dog is on the small side. I use this with a car harness that is close to six years old and show minimal signs of wear. I expect to be using the product for many more years before needing a replacement. I feel confident that my best friend is safe as possible and out of my lap when riding in the car with me. High quality product and good value.

This is a really nice option when travelling with a dog to hold him in place outside the crate. Funny thing my dachshund somehow unlatched it. Imagine the surprise we had when we got back to the car after a rest stop. Yes, it was strapped all the way on when we left him. He has not done it again since then, though. We really like it for holding him in place while loading and getting in and out of the car. My daughter has one for her dog and suggested it for us. We are very happy with it and would highly recommend this for any dog lover.

We now have a Swivel Tether which you can find under our Harnesses category.
