Can you easily look back and see through it. I mean like if you need to look back through your back car window, can you see through? If you can’t then it’s a bad traffic hazard...
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2018
This Barrier has claw proof micro-mesh makes it easier to see through than metal tube barriers.

Would it be possible to connect 2 of these together to create a wider (side to side) barrier?
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2018
Multiple barriers cannot be added together to cover more area. This barrier adjust to fit most headrest.

How well does this work if the front seats are not aligned? Example, my husband and I are in the vehicle and my seat is pulled further forward by several inches.
Answer by ChewyMay 05, 2020
This barrier works best with the seats at the same distance forward/back in the vehicle, as the attachments on each side connect at the headrest. If the seats were a good distance apart, the barrier would sit sideways. It would still do the job of keeping the pet in the back though.

Would this work on a Yukon between the second row bucket seats to keep the dog in the cargo area?
Answer by ChewyMar 02, 2019
The barrier acts as a deterrent but is not strong enough to stop a determined dog.

Fits perfectly and keeps the dog in back

We had a different barrier to try to keep our 55-lb "lap dog" (or so he thinks) in the back seat. It was never 100% effective, and when we upgraded our SUV to a new model, it didn't even fit anymore. Tried this one in the hopes that it would fit and actually keep him in the back row, and so far in limited usage, we couldn't be happier. The other one didn't go as high, so he would put his chin on it and push it down to the point he could even get a paw on it occasionally. This one goes all the way to the ceiling of our '23 CR-V so he doesn't even try to get through it. The center post gives it strength, and the ties on either side fit around the posts of our front row headrests quite easily and snugly. The only thing that doesn't work in our car is there's a piece attached to the bottom that is supposed to secure into the passenger seat and hold the bottom firm to the center console. In our CR-V, the front seats don't have a gap between the seatback and the seat, so I haven't found a way to make use of that piece. That said, our dog is not one who will try to climb under the barrier with how it sits in the car, so we don't really need that part anyway. tl;dr: We love this barrier and it's the first one that has worked well for our dog.

Very pleased

This is exactly what I was looking for! I had a decently large dog who gets very excited when we go to his favorite places and would jump back and forth between the front and the back which is dangerous. If he really wanted to, he could get through this but it does the job of discouraging that dangerous behavior and he usually lays down more often. My only complaint is the bottom anchor does not work the with the front seats I have but he still doesn't push it out of the way. It perfectly does the function I bought for.

Almost but not quite

This barrier worked well at first, but my new rescue pup has figured out how to get under it and up to the other side, so she's able to get over the console and into the front passenger seat, which isn't ideal. Unfortunately just not right for us! Still seems to be good quality though!

Can't Stand up to a Pittie

Ripped and destroyed within one day, cant stand up to a 50 lb dog desperate to get into the front seat.

Just what we needed!

Our dog loves to try to drive the car, so this screen does just the trick to keep her as a backseat passenger.

Stopped in her tracks!

Our little corgi refused to stay in the back. Her preferred was location perched on the armrest of our Prius between the front seats. Kind of an adorable navigator, but definitely not safe. We'd tried a couple of barriers. Alas, corgis are smart, calculating and determined. This works! I attached to headrest as shown and anchored it by putting the strap around the opening hinges of the very armrest she use to inhabit.

Did not work for large dog.

My husky broke this the first time we used it. She bent the bar that goes down the middle.

Front Seat Access Denied!

I have a pretty big active cattle dog/shepherd who weighs about 58 pounds. She liked to ride with her two paws on the front console. Dangerous for both of us!! I don't like having her stuck in the kennel in the back either as she can not fully stand. This way, with the Mesh Dog Barrier and a seat cover she can look out the windows, lay down, poke her nose around the corner but not get into the front seat. I wish it was rectangle so that it would cover the corners. She tried to get through the first day and almost got stuck. She didn't do that again! All in all I am very, very happy with it!!
