Technical Product Information

How to Size Your Dog
There are two ways to size the harnesses to your dog: weight-based sizing and chest circumference sizing.

Weight-Based Sizing
Pet owners can choose one of two harnesses, based on the weight of their dog. Two harnesses support dogs of all sizes. *

Small Breed: Fits dogs 20 pounds or less *
Standard Size: Fits dogs over 20 pounds *

* There are some extremely small and extremely large dogs that will not fit into PetBuckle products.

What is a LATCH Bar?
LATCH bars were recently introduced to the automotive industry to provide a common anchor attachment point for child and infant car seats. The LATCH bars are located in the “bight line” of the seat. This is the point where the back and bottom of the car seat comes together. This makes the bar nearly invisible, yet always available to securely attach your precious cargo.

The standardized attachment points now required by law mean fewer opportunities to incorrectly attach a child/infant car seat. The LATCH bars also make an ideal attachment point for your pets too!

CAUTIONS
SEAT BELT HARNESS, KWIK-CONNECT TETHER

For your dog’s safety, we recommend:

  • Attaching the Kwik-Connect Tether to the PetBuckle Seat Belt Harness, rather than to your
    dog’s collar.
  • If your harness or tether show signs of wear or cut web, replace the restraint at once.
  • Do not leave your dog unattended on hot days. Temperatures in enclosed vehicles can rise to dangerous levels. Make sure your dog always has adequate ventilation.
  • Do not attach a dog weighing more than 60 pounds to the LATCH bar! Doing so could damage the LATCH bar in a sudden stop. Use other attachment points if your dog weighs more than
    60 pounds.
  • Straps must criss-cross at the triangle web guide. Harnesses used without the criss-crossed straps will not hold in a sudden stop.
  • For the greatest safety, adjust the tether to the shortest length comfortable for your dog.

TRUCK TETHER

  • For your dog’s safety, we recommend attaching the Kwik-Connect Tether to an appropriate strength harness such as the PetBuckle Seat Belt Harness rather than to your dog’s collar.
  • Regularly inspect your tether looking for signs of worn or cut web. If web is worn, frayed or cut, replace tethers at once.
  • Attaching to metal loop-brackets in any location other than the front corners of the truck bed may enable dog to jump out of truck and be injured.
  • Over-tightening the adjuster on the truck tether can make releasing the web difficult.
  • Do not leave your dog unattended on hot days. Temperatures in enclosed vehicles can rise to dangerous levels. Make sure your dog always has adequate ventilation.

KENNEL SYSTEM RESTRAINTS

  • Regularly inspect your kennel tether to look for signs of worn or cut web. If the web is worn, frayed or cut, replace the kennel tether at once.
  • Do not leave your dog unattended on hot days. Temperatures in enclosed vehicles can rise to dangerous levels. Make sure your dog always has adequate ventilation.
