Well built but USELESS as dog barrier
on July 2, 2013
The first reviewer must have a horse, because I can tell you that this barrier will NOT keep most dogs out of your back seat. Due to the design, Subaru engineers left an enormous gap at either side of the seat area, where the seat and window meet. I assume this to be for safety reasons should the curtain airbags deploy in a collision. I work with larger dogs (45-60lbs) for transport and rescue and they can easily climb through the holes. The quality of the unit is very good, don't get me wrong, and no it doesn't rattle and is heavy duty but it is not effective for my intended purpose which was to keep the dogs from entering the back seat areas. You may have better luck but I had no idea there was so much room between the divider and the window or I would not have wasted $300 on it. I can get one from Midwest that does a much better job with coverage.
