It’s empty in here!
We have had this cover for a number of years now and we have always had it set in the car so the shiny side/ more easily washable side is next to the dogs. The Acrylic woven side against the seat. Obvious yes ! NOT SO. Looking at the picture of the Golden Retreiver in one, we have been putting it in the wrong way round. BUT I DON'T THINK SO !
It fits into my Audi a6 avant like it was made for it, with my boxer puppy on a harness and everything was good. My pup had a little accident and it stopped it from leaking through to the seats (again bonus), so I washed it and now one of the side panels just won't zip on, it just falls off, which is odd because the other side is still ok. But overall good quality fabric used and well constructed.
Basic good value however only has only ONE reinforced opening for seat belt locks which is in the centre between where they actually are (on my Skoda anyway ) I think this could be construed as misleading. I have just spent a day cutting and sewing new ones.
I have bought 3 of these and 2 of the more expensive covers. All 3 of the cheaper model have broken zips. Very disappointing as the idea is to protect doors as well as the seats.
My lab loves to lie on the sofa. This cover is great for protecting the material, and, being waterproof, when she's damp it isn't a problem. I am renewing the cover as this one is beginning to lose its backing after many months of service
I can absolutely recommend this cover. It's perfectly manufactured and very well thought out. The sides can be opened separately as entry points. There are also zippers for closing the cover. The top material is made of sturdy fabric. Our dog also sits in it quite comfortably. The most important thing: our dog loves the cover and regularly sleeps in the backseat.
Just the product I needed and zooplus have it
This is THE solution for a problem we've had for a while. Our retriever has always slipped into the gaps between the seats (despite using a seatbelt!) so we were reluctant to take her on car trips. This filler has solved that problem and now car trips are back to being relaxed!
Because of lots of some of the comments I took mine to get some newer, stronger fastening loops attached. Since then I've used it almost daily. It does what it says, is sturdy and even after 4 months looks great!
The box arrived with German Instructions and pictures. We tried to fit it but had a bit of trouble, almost gave up then I found the English PDF and it was much simpler, we now have it fitted and our dog is very happy.
I have had a bridge seat cover for 3 years, my dogs travel on the back seat because my mobility scooter is usually in the back part of the estate. I have 2 large dogs and the cover fits my Astra perfectly, my golden was very frightened in the car but after fitting the bridge cover she is a lot happier. the quality is very good and its worth every penny. Unfortunatley one of the dogs has chewed the zip and it now won't work, although still perfectly okay. I'm buying another one just in case
My dog is very nervous getting into the back of the car. One slip and she would fall off the seat and, being a greyhound with spindly legs, risked serious damage. This cover makes the back seat a flat surface right up to the front seats, a much safer system that gives the dog more confidence getting in and out. If you need to use the back seal it is a simple task to unzip part of the cover or to remove it completely. I give it 11/10 as it changed my dog's life (and ours).
I moved the seats back in my Peugeot 106 to give the dogs more room - and this blanket is ingenious. They both lay on their own blankets and didn't disturb me when I was driving. It was easy to clean, but with 2 big dogs, I think it went over its limit. But the price makes up for that.
My new dog is a young chewer and demolished my first hammock but now he settling and past the chewing stage, I am getting another because I was so very satisfied with my first. It is strong enough for a very big, heavy dog.
Even though my Border Collie x Golden Retriever wears a safety harness she ended up in the rear footwell after we had to brake hard. Understandably, this made her a bit nervous about travelling in the car. While looking for a hammock type seat cover, I found the 'Bridge' on Zooplus, and Sally loves it. It's well made and fits our car nicely. As well as keeping Sally safe it also keeps the seats and rear footwells clean too. It seemed expensive when I bought it, but I feel that it's worth every penny and I'd throughly recommend it.
I searched for car seat cover options as I need to travel alone with the dog, and prefer to use my Convertible (and my wife wants to use here usual car too. Want a practical and well made solution, a safe and happy dog, and to keep the seats in good condition. First - and most importantly - the dog loves it compared to the crate we use in the other (estate) car. First time it was set up and she went in, we had to lift her out. She loves cruising with the top down – (I wouldn't have had a Labrador for a poser..). 1. QUALITY: Positive - generally its a high quality product, but negative: the seams on the edge are a bit loose in one place and might fray in time. 2. FITTING : It took a while to figure out the best way to get it fitted (The Car is Saab 9-3 Convertible). I expected to have to cut the boards to size - but this isn't required as I don't think they will add to the product at all in this case. I've removed them. As the seats are "bucket seat", the dog just lies happily. She won't fall down the gap to the front seats (small in a convertible) especially as gap which is now perfectly covered by the materials. No Board is required. I'll keep them for use in another vehicle- some time... Fitting to Front headrest is simple. Its possible that the connector might snap - same as on any plastic rucksack fitting - and replaceable. Fitting to the back a bit harder to figure out. - the excess did need to be rolled up - not complicated (need to check the buckle wont tear the seats - easy to avoid). The long straps - see instructions, need to go to the outside pillar of the headrest to hold the material reasonably taut across the width. Because there is now an excess of material (back seat at minimum is 0.85m) this can be folded up along the side of the car - giving some extra protection (to the car).. 3. PRACTICALITIES. With no Back doors, and tipping seats (remember its fitted to the front headrest... As I fitted it - I realised that there would be a problem getting the dog in and out. (especially would be with a board- see what happens when seat id tipped – on one side, not ton the other….) . Solution was to unzip the join - zip on the front as far as the seat, unclip one side from the front head rest, fold the excess down into the footwell, and the dog can get in/ out pretty easily. The footwell is now partially protected too. If I have 3 passengers - 2 people and the dog, then my preferred solution will be to do exactly that and the rear passenger will then sit on the car seat cover. (possible as there is no board) To unzip it all is a bit more effort and especially at the rear end where the mat is rolled up - but still quite simple and its something I’ll do rarely anyway. On balance -pleased with it - even though I'm not using it fully as per instructions and having to adapt. It works, and I can see how it would definitely work on a 4 door cars rear seat.
This is the ultimate accessory for dog owners with saloon or hatchback vehicles. It keeps the seats and floor clean, but allows humans to use the seats as well. With the bridge effect your dog doesn't run out of firm footing and panic. It also makes getting in and out of the car much safer for your dog. It is a little expensive compared to the simple hammock seat covers, but it is so versatile it is worth it.
I'm really happy with this product. Great value for money. Simple assembly and extremely convenient
This has proved a great success. Our young Lakeland does not like travelling in a crate but enjoys travelling on this. We spent 6 months in the USA with our 2 Lakelands and took it with us in a suitcase so that we could use it in a hire car over there. Worked perfectly. We now have USA friends looking for this product!
This is more expensive than many other but for a good reason - its a much better product. Suitable for the heavier/bigger dog. Only problem, no where to fix the hook under the front seat. My seats have smooth bottoms.
I bought this car mat for my Peugeot 207! At first I had a bit of a problem putting it together, but I figured it out! It really does protect the car from dirt, especially in the last rainy spell. Great product and hopefully it'll last!
as said above product very well made but alas does not fit very well could do with another 2-4 additional metal eye holes with longer straps i'm gonna have to have additional eyelets added locally....i have a volvo v70 estate and the head rests do not lend themselves to the position of the straps......but still recommended as said strong and well mqde... no doubt will fit a mercedes etc
I have just ordered a second one of these, from Zooplus. The first is still in use in my wife's car and now that I have my own car, I wanted one too. They're highly durable, easily fitted, easily stowed and easily cleaned. But most of all it creates a spacious area in the back for my dogs (a Cocker and a Westie) and prevents them from jumping into the front as well as keeping the seats and the floorwell spotless. There are handy velcroed(?) holes to allow the seatbelts through, if required. If you don't have headrests (front AND rear) you WILL have problems fitting it in place. It seems a lot of money, but genuinely, for what you get, it's well worth it. The only fault I could find with it (if you could call it a fault) was that, coming from a company called 'KleinMetall' in Germany the instructions were in german only. But you don't have to work for NASA to figure out how to assemble it. It's simple! Highly Recommended!
I got 2 of these, and yes, it was expensive, but worth every penny! One for me, one for my Mum. Easy to install, really sturdy, so good for the dogs as the footwell is covered with a sturdy piece of ply. They'll never slip between the seats again, and this also helps to keep my Giant Schnauzer in the back seat (well, it won't stop him). Decent size as well, not too narrow for my Gold Estate. I love it!!!!!
Having just bought a new car wanted something to keep the back seat and the footwells clean and fur free!!!! We are extremely pleased with this product and yes it is easy to fit (even if the instructions are in german) Thank you
This is brilliant for transporting my 2 young lab cross dogs. The back seat stays clean and the boot is free for luggage and shopping. Can also keep an eye on them. Highly recommended.
Really worth spending the money on this. I have leather upholstery and this protects the back seat completely.
This is the best thing - ever. Stops the dog coming into the front, saves the rest of the car from hairs and drool, sand and mud, and is really easy to install / or use just one side if you have a passenger. I would recommned it to everyone with a pooch! Makes cleaning the inside of the car a breeze as well.
this is a great asset to have for any body wanting to carry the dog in the rear seats, ours is loving every moment, we take her out with us alot more knowing she is happy travelling in the back of the car, in comfort.keeping the leather seats in my car clean for the future.
Un producto fantástico que puedes adaptar a cualquier vehículo. Es genial y maravilloso, mi cachorrita de 4 meses ahora no quiere bajarse del coche le encanta. Un poco caro pero merece la pena su compra. Muchas gracias
I was a little nervous spending so much on something that may not work, but I would not be without it now. Our dog is only 17 mths old but loved having his own special seat. We put an old pillow and blanket on top as we were travelling a long way as can be a little hard, but brilliant!
This seat cover is fantastic. With the board covering the footwell if you brake, the dog will not fall down the gap. it is also very quick and easy to un zip and fold up on to the back of the front seats when not in use. best doggy thing we have purchased by far.
this has been the best in dog car covers. the buckles have not come apart or ripped. I have a chocolate labrador and she actually lies down in the car instead of sitting up.
Have tried many 'hammock' type rear seat covers but this is by far the best - extremely hard wearing particularly for larger dogs. Easy to remove or adjust if one person needs to sit in the back seats.
