Default Trav All Pet Barriers

Has anyone had any experience with Trav All brands?

Their Outback barrier seems like it will do the trick of keeping the dog in the back without using the anchor points.

No experience with this product but from the install PDF it appears the mounted partition is rearward from the seat tops and leans even further to the rear at the top by the center seatbelt. Given the forward slope of the rear hatch/glass the "headroom" is restricted quite a bit. Big dogs could have trouble turning around in cramped quarters. Nice looking unit though and the price sure beats the factory barrier.

Did you watch the video? The show a divider that bisects the rear. I think that would be nice, but the install instructions nor any of the pictures show that feature.

Nice feature if you have one small dog or two that need to be separated. Still no help for the big guy's.

I wish they would have some that can be used with the rear seats folded down. I have two big dogs and they would not have enough room to be comfortable with the rear seat up.

^I did see some kind of an SUV that had a barrier that did just that - he had the rear seatbacks down and the barrier was just behind the front seats.

To the OP: Have you looked at the Subaru barrier? I have it, and it's quite nice. It doesn't lean back at the top, but does work with the center belt. It's also much more securely fastened to the car than the Trav All unit, although the Subaru unit would take more effort to remove from the car.

Thanks for the response all. Very helpful forum. I have seen the OEM barrier but I am worried about how it functions. Will it fold down with the seats or will I have to remove it every time I fold the seats down? We live in a small row house and storing a large grate will be a pain in the butt. Also the use of the tie down straps is a potential problem as we have a baby now and if we have another we will have a problem.

I like how secure the OEM unit is but it feels like a bit of overkill for my medium size dog. He can't come over the seats but only gets his head over the seats and drools on my nice new leather interior (oh and the baby).

I keep looking at this barrier myself as I like the simplicity and the fact that your rear tethers are available for the kiddo's seats. But I'm suspicious of it's ability to hold cargo, dog, whatever, in the event of a wreck. I think it would fold forward with not much force with only those two little posts providing front titling stability.

. The factory barrier has firm mounting points but still allows an animal to be thrown around against/through the glass in the back. A dog tether risks a broken neck or choking. In the event of an accident a crate is your safest option. In a violent accident all bets are off.

I'm more concerned with the safety of the passengers then that of the dog if I'm going to get in a wreck. A cargo or dog missile into a child or other passenger is no good.
