A connection kit (4 anchor straps included in the kit) was purchased with the Gunner Kennel and was used to secure the crate to the connections in the simulated cargo area per manufacturer instructions.
Test Results: The anchor straps held firmly with no hardware deformation or webbing migration. The anchor pins on the crate experienced minor deformation.
The Gunner Kennel did not strike the seatback.
The kennel experienced no structural integrity issues with the overall crate body. The locked door retained integrity and was unlocked and opened easily.
The crash test dog was retained.
Test Dog Size: 75#
The test results from the first test of the Gunner Kennel were superior and a second test was deemed “not necessary” by Center for Pet Safety.
