Center for Pet Safety used four new strength-rated cargo straps connected to the crate connectors and the anchors in the simulated cargo area to anchor the crate.
Test Results: The tie-down brackets failed on three of four corners.
The door of the crate completely separated from the crate and broke into multiple pieces.
The crate body itself sustained minimal deformation at the point of impact. No fracture of the crate body occurred.
The crate contacted the seatback fixture and the test dog was not retained in the crate.
Test Dog Size: 75#
