Review & Install Video
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line with leash, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers. Today, we're gonna talk about the installation of this zip line kit, as well as the construction and a few of the features. This is, of course, for those of you who like to bring your pets in your Jeep with you, but want to keep them in the backseat and keep them safe. This can also be used outside of the Jeep at a campsite, but it's really designed to keep your pet in the back seat. All you need to add to this is a harness and you have everything you need. This is a universal fit item, so it will work in any Wrangler of any year.
This zip line kit comes with two different pieces. Of course, the zip line itself and then the leash to attach your dog's harness to. Again, this does not include a collar or a harness, so you'll have to provide that part. The zip line itself is a really well-built piece. It is a canvas material, it has rubber-coated hooks, there is a spring loaded metal catch so that you can adjust it. That piece is going to go between both of the rear seat belts and be pulled tight. From there, you will clip on the leash portion which has two high-quality metal carabiners on it, and clip the other end of the leash, of course, to that harness. This is a part that's going to be very easy to install, and it's going to serve a couple of purposes. One, it'll keep your dog safe in the event of hard breaking or an accident, but two, it will keep your dog in the back seat of your Jeep, so they're not distracting you while you're trying to drive.
Installation for this is, of course, a very simple one out of three wrenches, it's hardly an install at all. All you're going to do is take the hooks of the zip line section through your rear seat belts, and pull the adjuster tight. From there, clip one end of the leash to the dog's harness and the other end to the zip line and you're finished. This will come in and out of the Jeep very, very easily, so you can put people in the back seat and then switch to the setup for your dog in no time at all.
When I first saw this item, I thought maybe it was a little bit expensive for what you get. But then, after taking it out of the box and actually looking at the quality of the components, I think it's absolutely worth it. I love the fact that these are rubber-coated hooks, so they're not gonna make any noise or do any damage to the inside of your Jeep. This spring loaded clip with the teeth is going to hold the zip line nice and tight wherever you adjust it to, and these carabiners are heavy duty high-quality carabiners, not the type where the spring is going to break in no time after a couple of uses. This setup is gonna hold up and it's going to work as advertised for a good long time.
So, if you like to bring your dog with you in your Jeep either on road or off-road, but you wanna make sure that they stay in the back seat so they're not distracting you and also stay safe, a zip line setup like this is a great option. This will give your dog a little bit more mobility than clipping them directly into the seat belt, but still keep them safe.
So, that's my review of the Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line with leash fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
Pair this Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line with your favorite pet harness to prevent unwanted jumping, escaping and distractions while driving. A unique adjustable design allows you to make use of this zip line in your Jeep's rear seat or cargo area, boat or campsite.
This multi use zip line attaches easily to your Wrangler's seat belts or grab bar handles to provide a tethered connection for your dog. Durable and adjustable, this kit comes with a carabiner equipped leash, giving you full control when its time to unload and exit your Jeep.
This Zip line w/Leash is designed for universal fitment on all 1987-2017 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ and JK models.
Note: This zip line is not intended for use off road, nor does it prevent the pet risks associated with traveling when a top is down or off. Pet Harness not included.
