GUNNER recommends securing your kennel 100% of the time, by strapping it down with our 8' tie-down straps to the strongest anchor points in your vehicle.
Our custom cam buckle and polyester webbing combo have met our crash test standards: These are the very same straps that were used in the testing protocol that earned our G1™ a 5 Star Crash Test Rating, via Center For Pet Safety certification program.
In fact, here's quick story as to why the tie-down straps you use may matter: in our own initial crash testing (before the G1™ was ever released), our first iteration of straps were snapped with the force of impact, and unable to hold the kennel down. So we went back to the drawing board – and released our 8' tie-down strap product, the only set we recommend.
Below are visuals to better help you secure the crate to your vehicle.
