Here is a picture of seat belt restraint:


I got the black belt thing at PetsMart for $8.50. I got the metal thing at Babies 'R Us for like $3. It is in car seat section.

I use a similar one with this vest harness only because Peanut is so small I was afraid his regular harness would hurt him in a sudden stop. You can also just put the car seat belt through the back of the harness, but that forces him to sit up and I know he likes to sleep in the car

Lady's Easy Rider goes through the shoulder harness so she can lie down and get comfortable. The shoulder harness only locks upon impact or during a sudden stop. I researched safety harnesses before I got mine. The Easy Rider and another one I can't remember now were rated the best. Fortunately, we haven't had to test it out yet!

I read that the Easy Rider was the only seatbelt harness that was approved by some organization or another, but I can't find one small enough for Peanut. He has a really small frame. It does sound good though

I got it at my vet's office. It's a little expensive there, but they support local shelters so I figured it was better than hunting all around for it somewhere else. If you can't find one I can try to pick one up at the vet's (I only live 10 minutes from there and I would use any excuse to go back and buy more doggie stuff
)

Oh just kidding! The price at the vet is the same as they have listed on the website I linked. $25 for the extra small(under 15 lbs)

haha! Let me think about it. Right now June has been an expensive month so I should probably want a month or two. I need to stop buy stuff. Jeeze! Trip to San Diego, wireless router & card, mini printer server, cable internet, saving for a new puppy, etc.

Yeah I lost the one that came with Lexi's car seat. So far I have just left this one attached to the seat belt. That way I can't lose it.

I use the vest harness to secure my boys in the car too! I love it, I feel more secure when they are wearing it, I think it protects them better than a regular harness in a sudden stop. (hoping, anyway)

That's what I'm hoping too. I was just thinking about how people can get cuts and bruises from their seatbelts, and I thought a regular harness could possibly hurt the boys like that too. Maybe I'm too paranoid, but I would never forgive myself if I caused the boys to get hurt
