US Patent 6792894
Many pets tend to wander around the vehicle when riding unrestrained. Serious injury to the pet and the vehicle occupants could occur if the pet is unrestrained. PawRider is designed to wrap around an existing seatbelt and to keep the pet in the vehicle seat.
The PawRider Seat Belt Adapter utilizes a one piece length of material with hook and loop closure and a D-ring that comes through the slot when the PawRider is wrapped around a conventional seatbelt. The method of attachment of the PawRider to the seatbelt will determine how far the pet can move away from the PawRider. The PawRider will move up and down the shoulder strap depending on the pet's height and whether the pet is sitting or standing.
Connect the seatbelt buckle. Any seatbelt can be used.
**Note: Caution: The seatbelt restraint should be NOT be used in the front seat due to the airbag.
Open the PawRider and wrap it around the lap belt leaving it open. Do not engage the Vel-Lock Closure.
Pull the shoulder strap portion of the seat belt down on top of the lap portion and wrap the PawRider around both the lap and shoulder portion of the seatbelt.
Wrap the opposing sides of the PawRider together engaging the hook and loop and placing the D-Ring thru the slot. Insure that the hook & loop is fully engaged and smooth and the D-ring is protruding thru the slot.
Hook one end of the Dual Snap Hook Tether Snap Hook to the PawRider and one end to the pet's harness. Note: Depending on Personal preference the PawRider can be installed on the lap portion, shoulder portion, or lap and shoulder combined.
The installation is the same for placing the PawRider on just the lap portion or the shoulder portion by not using one or the other. The PawRider's wrap style design with hook and loop Vel-Lock Closure makes it easy to switch the PawRider from seat to seat and from vehicle to vehicle. You can also use the PawRider on a boat.
