PPRS Handilock Availability

PPRS Handilock is available to Sleepypod mobile pet bed owners free of charge until December 31, 2015. “While the Sleepypod mobile pet bed passed independent crash testing without the addition of the PPRS Handilock, we want our customers to feel confidant when using Sleepypod products,” says Michael Leung, a Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. 

Sleepypod mobile pet bed owners wishing to augment the Sleepypod with the PPRS Handilock may order it at http://sleepypod.com/handilock. Future purchases of the Sleepypod mobile bed will include the PPRS Handilock without additional charge.


What is PPRS Handilock?

PPRS Handilock was designed to augment Sleepypod mobile pet bed car safety.

The PPRS Handilock evolved as a result of variances in test results by Sleepypod and the Center for Pet Safety. Sleepypod tested its Sleepypod mobile pet bed without the PPRS Handilock at two NHTSA contracted laboratories with success. The 15 pound crash test pet remained in the Sleepypod, on the test bench, for the duration of the test, and without rotation.

The addition of the PPRS Handilock augments Sleepypod mobile pet bed safety by accommodating possible variations in testing such as test bench design, crash test dummy design, or even velcro inconsistency.

In the crash test video above, each Sleepypod mobile pet bed contains a 15 pound crash test pet. Each crash test pet remained in its respective Sleepypod mobile pet bed, on the test bench, for the duration of the test, and without rotation. The white Sleepypod is augmented with Sleepypod’s PPRS Handilock. The pink Sleepypod is not augmented with the PPRS Handilock.
