This barrier is for a pet that is basically trained well, as it is not very durable and a pushy dog will go right thru it. The cons are: footings are plastic, not rubber. Supposedly you can put screws in to keep the different parts from sliding, I couldn't get that to work, the screws wouldn't tighten enough, so the tubular parts kept sliding down, so I had to use black electical tape to keep it from shifting. It occasionally will just fall over, I guess it works itself loose after about 2 days. The Pros: Price Price Price. Once again, I recommend this for trained dogs, who just need a mental barrier. It is right for me, as I don't have a lot of money and my dog is well trained, if you can afford a better quality one, go for it. If you have a smaller dog, you will need to buy an extension.
This product is the best I have ever used. I have been so pleased and excited about it being in my car. Bosley (a golden retreiver/chow mix) has not tried once to come through it. Before, he would come from back of SUV to driver to sit next to me. Works like a charm. He is safe and I am too. Sturdy, functional without being obtrusive. Fits and can be moved from one vehicle to another. I have not been this thrilled with a product ever. Highly recommend for anyone who travels with a pet, no matter how often or size of pet.
Built well compared to others I have seen. have read negative comments on this item, I disagree with them. Obviously takes some adjusting to fit your individual vehicle, but works well in a Suburban with a 90lb hound. Great price.
I have a 60lb golden retriever/collie mix who out of nowhere started jumping over the back seat and distracting me in the front. This has done the job of keeping him safely in the cargo area.
This was relatively easy to install in my Jeep Liberty. I installed one of the screws wrong and that bar slips a little bit because of the (user) error.
It took about a week for the dog to get used to it. The first two times he slid the bars over so that he could squeeze into the back seat. Once he realized the purpose was to keep him back there, I haven't had a problem since.
My only issue is that if the bars are too close to the side windows, there is sometimes a rattling but it's not a big deal.

I like that the barrier is adjustable and can easily be removed. However, I am not impressed with the plastic pieces that attach the horizontal bars to the two vertical bars. When you install it, you have to tighten a screw on the plastic portion which is what holds the horizontal bars securely in place. As I was installing it, I was SLOWLY AND GENTLY tightening the screws (the horizontal bar still had some movement at this point) when the back (others) side of the plastic piece cracked! I could see it happening if I had overtightened it, but the horiztonal bar wasn't secure at the point when it cracked. This portion of the guard should have been made of metal.

The dog barrier arrived excatly as pictured. It was fairly easy to assemble.
PRO: It was cheap and would work on small dogs or a more gentle large dog
CONS: The adjustable bars on the left and right do not lock in place so my 75+ dogs cn push through it.
Overall just an ok purchase. You get what you pay for. I am going to try and rig it to be more sturdy.
