The Snoozer Lookout Car Seat was secured to the test bench. The 25 lb. Terrier Test Dog was secured (per manufacturer instructions) to the seatbelt system using the anchor strap included with the Snoozer Lookout Car Seat. The anchor strap was connected to a new walking harness. (Manufacturer does not specify the type of harness to use for travel, but only instructs the user not to connect to the dog’s collar.)
Upon impact the anchor strap failed and the test dog was fully unrestrained. The Snoozer Car Seat rotated, while secured by the seatbelt system and the test dog rebounded off of the sled bench frame. At the end of the test, the test dog was located adjacent to the Snoozer Car Seat.
