Straight out of the box the pet seat goes together quite easily, We managed to get it together in less than 15 minutes.
The seat feels very sturdy once it's together and the cushion and cover come off to be washed, which is great when you're securing muddy dogs into the car.
Once you get the seatbelt through the back you can feel that it's very secure and its a heavy duty carabiner clip, for that extra peace of mind. It fits into the car almost like a child's seat.
At the time of this feature, Solvit's pet safety seat is the ONLY seat on the market for pets which is crash-tested, as there is currently NO requirement for companies to do this for pet products.
