Gen7Pets Pet Carrier and Car Seat Passes Center for Pet Safety Test
Gen7Pets has introduced its Commuter Pet Carrier + Car Seat, which has gone through rigorous testing to meet the highest standards for safety to reduce pet exposure to potential risk during car travel, according to officials for the Elverson, Pa.-based company.
Using a university based, independent testing facility, Gen7Pets performed a Dynamic Crash test. Using requirements established by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213 for child restraint systems, the Dynamic Crash test utilizes a sled to replicate conditions of a car accident. Created specifically to mimic the proportions of a real dog, a manufactured dog rode in the Gen7 Commuter during the test. The Gen7 Commuter not only passed the test, but received the highest safety rating available, 5-Star, by the consumer advocacy non-profit Center for Pet Safety, officials said.
“The test evidence indicates that Gen7Pets has completed ample due diligence on its Commuter carrier to achieve the highest crash test rating from Center for Pet Safety,” said Lindsey Wolko, founder of Center for Pet Safety. “This is an outstanding achievement proving the Commuter is an elite performing pet travel carrier and offers protection to all vehicle passengers, including those with four legs.
In addition, the Commuter is approved for use on most major airlines, the company said. The Gen7 Commuter gives furry friends the security and comfort they need. Proper containment allows animals to feel more comfortable and the smart-comfort pad gives pets an amazingly soft and cozy place to rest.
It is especially designed to utilize the seat belt latch and shoulder strap and to assist in restraining the carrier during car travel. The shoulder strap can be employed around the head rest to aid in stability. It has a durable seat belt latch keeps carrier in proper position, and it easily transfers in and out of vehicle. The commuter’s smart comfort pad is easy to clean and machine washable. Additionally, it has a padded shoulder strap and easy tote handle options.
The Commuter is suitable for pets up to 20 pounds and comes in black and burgundy.
