Installation Instructions & Video!

Here's a Video Showing How To Attach The PupSaver Seatbelt Clips To Your Vehicle's Seatbelt

And here are some step-by step instructions you can follow along with:

1) Once you receive the PupSaver, take it out of the box and remove the bottom seat cushion. Pop the PupSaver inside out and squeeze the sides together. This helps reshape the seat, since it’s been folded inside the box.

 

2) Now that you have the seat cushion out, adjust the tether to the length of your dog’s front legs. The tether should be long enough for them to stand up, but short enough that they cannot step out of the PupSaver.

 

3) Pop the PupSaver back and return the seat bottom cushion to its original placement. You are now ready to install the seat in your car.

 

NOW FOR EASY INSTALLATION:

 

Please note that there are a total of 7 plastic seatbelt attachment “buckles” and 2 metal “j-hooks” on your PupSaver seat. You will only use 5 of the plastic buckles during installation. Depending on which side of the car you are installing the seat, 2 plastic buckles will not be used. SEE PHOTOS BELOW BEFORE INSTALLATION. 

 

5) Pull the seatbelt all the way out and using the clip provided, clamp the seatbelt at the retraction point, so that the seatbelt cannot retract. The printed instructions in the box will help make this clear.

 

6) BUCKLE THE SEATBELT. Move the slack shoulder belt part of the seatbelt out of your way.

 

7) Please refer to the printed instructions for attaching the 3 PupSaver buckles onto the lap portion of the seatbelt and 2 metal j-hooks, if installing in the back seat. The j-hooks will only attach to the LATCH anchor system in the back seat of your vehicle, used for child car seats. (*Please see picture below)

 

So at this point, you should have used only the 3 buckles along the front of the PupSaver (and 2 j-hooks if installing in back seat) to attach the PupSaver to the lap potion of the seatbelt.

 

8) There are now 4 buckles left on the back of the PupSaver. ONLY USE TWO TO FORM A DIAGONAL LINE WITH THE SHOULDER HARNESS PORTION OF THE SEATBELT SYSTEM…TWO BUCKLES WILL NOT BE USED. (**Please see picture below)

 

At this time you can leave the clip at the seatbelt retraction point, if the seatbelt feels and looks too tight on the back of the PupSaver, which will cause it to fold over.

 

Congratulations! You are now ready to put your pup in their PupSaver and go for a ride!

**Photo 2 (step #7): depicts the 4 buckles on the back of the PupSaver, 2 of which will be used to make a diagonal line, using the shoulder harness portion of the seatbelt.  

 

IF YOU HAVE A PUPSAVER WITH RED, GREEN AND YELLOW COLORED DOTS ON THE BUCKLES (AND BLUE DOTS ON THE METAL J-HOOKS)- THESE ARE YOUR INSTRUCTIONS:


1) Once you receive your PupSaver, take it out of the box and remove the bottom seat cushion. Pop the PupSaver inside out and squeeze the sides together. This helps reshape the seat, since it’s been folded inside the box.

2) While the seat cushion is out, adjust the tetherto the length of your dog’s front legs. The tether should be long enough for them to stand up, but short enough that they cannot step out of the PupSaver.


3) Pop the PupSaver back and
return the seat bottom cushion. You are now ready to install the seat in your car.

NOW FOR EASY INSTALLATION​:

1. Pull the seatbelt all the way out and using the clip provided, clamp the seatbelt at the retraction point, so that the seatbelt cannot retract. LEAVE THIS CLIP IN PLACE AT ALL TIMES.

2. Buckle the seatbelt. Put the PupSaver in the seat, facing the back of the vehicle.

3) Now attach the 3 PupSaver buckles WITH RED DOTS​ onto the LAP portion of the seatbelt.

Attach​ ​2 metal j-hooks WITH BLUE DOTS, only if installing in the back seat.
(*Please refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for location of LATCH anchor points)

4) If installing in front passenger seat, or in back seat behind passenger seat: attach the 2 PupSaver buckles WITH YELLOW DOTSdiagonally onto the SHOULDER portion of the seatbelt.PLEASE ATTACH BUCKLES DIAGONALLY, OTHERWISE PUPSAVER WILL FOLD OVER.

5) If installing behind driver’s seat: attach the 2 PupSaver buckles WITH GREEN DOTS onto the SHOULDER portion of the seatbelt.PLEASE ATTACH BUCKLES DIAGONALLY, OTHERWISE PUPSAVER WILL FOLD OVER.

YOU WILL ONLY USE 2 OF THE 4 BUCKLES ON THE BACK OF THE PUPSAVER. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THE SEATBELT MAKES A DIAGONAL LINE ACROSS THE BACK.

At this time you can adjust the clip at the seatbelt retraction point, only if the seatbelt looks too loose. But be careful - if it’s too tight, the seatbelt will pull down the top of the PupSaver, which will make your dog uncomfortable!

Congratulations! You are now ready to put your pup in their PupSaver and go for a ride!
