'screens' for car windows

Post by Darlene Pietrzak, M/C 13 » Sun, 20 Nov 1994 04:58:50



On a segment of public televisions series 'Cats and Dogs with Anita Migday'
she spoke about traveling with your pets.  For lack of a better word, she
had 'screens' on her back windows that she said she bought at a dog show.
I have not seen these 'screens' at the dog shows in Chicago, although I must
say I had no need for them at the time.  I am purchasing a station wagon and
these would be perfect for me now.  If anyone knows where I can purchase
the 'screens', please let me know.

Thanks
Darlene

If you are referring to the latticework screens that stretch out and keep
your car windows open about 3 inches or so, first keep in mind that a
strong dog can bite these and pull them out, breaking  them and your
windows.

If you're referring to the metal screens that stretch along the back seat
and keep the dog from crashing forward (allegedly) - according to
yesterday's "Pet Department" on fX, they're available at most of the pet
warehouses. If memory serves, I've seen them there.  

Volvo also makes a screen that is just for Volvos - contact the dealer.

We never used a screen, but a seat belt harness, so I can't really tell
you how effective the screens might be. Good idea if you're carrying
packages, but in my humble opinion, not great for dogs.

Our local Petsmart (back with it was Petzazz) had plastic "screens" that
looked like latice when spread and then pushed together to "collapse".  
The problem I found is that they didn't match the curve of the windows
in my car, so they were basically not usable.  They might be able to be
used in something like my mother's car - seems to me her back windows
are flatter at the top (she has a station wagon -- a big one).  I
believe I've seen them in the Drs. Foster & Smith catalog.

I have those lattice things, and they work very well in my car for the
two backseat windows.  I h ave a Toyota station wagon.
