Pet Ego Jet Set Carrier for Pets Named Top Performer in Crashworthiness Studies

(Chicago, Illinois - July 25, 2015) - Pet Ego proudly announces that its Jet Set Forma Frame Carrier with ISOFIX-Latch has earned top performer status in the 2015 Crate and Carrier Crashworthiness Studies. The studies are a collaborative initiative of Subaru of America, Inc. and Center for Pet Safety (CPS) and were conducted using specially-designed crash test dummy dogs that simulate the approximate weights and dimensions of real dogs.

"The Pet Ego Jet Set Forma Frame Carrier with ISOFIX-Latch Connection performed admirably," according to results published in the 2015 CPS Report. "The test dog remained fully contained, and the connection system remained wholly connected to the test bench throughout the testing. Expected deformation to the connection base and the plastic buckle system was anticipated based on discussion with manufacturer."

"We are honored to have our Jet Set Carrier recognized as a Top Performer, and I would like to commend Subaru and Center for Pet Safety for their commitment towards increasing awareness about the importance of safe pet travel," commented Emanuele Bianchi, President and CEO of Pet Ego. "Pets are part of the family and ensuring that they are able to safely accompany their humans is paramount."

The Jet Set Forma Frame Carrier with ISOFIX-Latch provides pets with the safest and most comfortable travel experience. In 2014, this state of the art system was fully tested to the most stringent FMVSS 213 Crash Test conditions used to evaluate child safety restraint systems. Mercedes Benz has also selected the Jet Set Forma Frame Carrier system for its automobiles in the Japanese market.
