Pasadena Company Sleepypod Passes Crash Test for Its Pet Safety Products
Friday, May 4, 2018
Sleepypod, a Pasadena company known for redefining pet products, said its entire line of pet safety restraints for cars has been crash tested at U.S., Canadian, and European child safety restraint systems standards.
“Sleepypod is the first pet product manufacturer to test its pet safety restraints for cars at U.S., Canadian, and European child restraint systems standards with successful results,” said Michael Leung, Sleepypod Co-Founder and Lead Product Designer, in a statement on Thursday. “In each test, Sleepypod’s safety harnesses and carriers kept a crash test pet from accelerating forward and leaving the test bench while mitigating damaging forces and limiting rotation.”
The company said Sleepypod carriers and safety harnesses include Pet Passenger Restraint System components to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement during a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in the U.S. Transport Canada is responsible for transportation policies and programs in Canada. In Europe, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe provides the uniform provisions concerning the approval of child restraint systems, the press release said.
Clickit Terrain and Clickit Sport safety harnesses were crash tested using DUKE 2.0, Sleepypod’s proprietary crash test dog weighing 75 pounds, the company said.
The Sleepypod, Sleepypod Air, and Sleepypod Atom pet carriers were crash tested using Sleepypod’s crash test cat, CLEO 2.0, and the Sleepypod Mini carrier was crash-tested using Sleepypod’s smallest crash test dog, MAX Mini.
