Sleepypod Crash Tests Products at US, Canadian, European Child Safety Restraint Systems Standards

May 3, 2018

Sleepypod, a Pasadena, Califonria-based company known for redefining pet products, has had its entire line of pet safety restraints for cars crash tested at U.S., Canadian and European child safety restraint systems standards.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 213, Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) No. 213, and United Nations European Regional Standard (ECE) R44 are analogous safety standards. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issues Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in the United States. Transport Canada is responsible for transportation policies and programs in Canada. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe provides the uniform provisions concerning the approval of child restraint systems

“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 each test, Sleepypod’s safety harnesseSleepypod2s and carriers kept a crash test pet from accelerating forward and leaving the test bench while mitigating damaging forces and limiting rotation.”

Sleepypod carriers and safety harnesses include Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS) components designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement during a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision.

Clickit Terrain and Clickit Sport safety harnesses were crash tested using DUKE 2.0, Sleepypod’s proprietary crash test dog weighing 75 pounds.

The Sleepypod, Sleepypod Air and Sleepypod Atom pet carriers were crash tested using Sleepypod’s crash test cat, CLEO 2.0. The Sleepypod Mini carrier was crash tested using Sleepypod’s smallest crash test dog, MAX Mini.
