Two anchor straps, included with the ProLine Milan, were used to secure the crate to the connections in the simulated cargo area.
Test Results: The cargo connection anchor straps experienced a complete rupture and fully released the crate.
The rear panel of the crate was destroyed. The rear end of the test dog protruded out of the crate. The rear and side panels of the crate were confirmed to be wooden chip board.
The lock failed and the door of the crate released inwards toward the test dog upon impact. The crate subsequently tumbled in free flight off of the test sled and onto the floor.
The door could not be opened and required extra force to open and release the test dog.
Test Dog Size: 75#
