Jeep Wrangler (1987-2017 YJ, TJ, & JK) Pet Backseat Auto Zip Line w/ Leash Review & Install


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.

  1. judging by the amount of slack on the strap and the design of the seatbelts, which are to pull out easily to fit around one's body, is that the proper way to mount the strap? It seems more logical to have the strap wrapped around the entirety of the seat… when brake checking one's pet would just fall forward and pull the seatbelts with them… just my 2 cents.

  2. I can't seem to figure out how to properly lock the seat belts as described in the instructions for this product. Any ideas? I have a '17 wrangler 2 door

  3. Why such a huge carabiner..looks excessive for purpose and small dog could get paw tangled in it moving around back seat.

  4. WHAT about the canine, that likes to "Chew" the lead strap? I tried applying,Bitter Apple and a couple other things,BUT, Lady chews right thru them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
