    Rated 1 out of 5 by Fiasco 2 wasted journeys to Barnstaple store for specially ordered guard. First time, vital part missing. The second time, staff spent half hour unsuccessfully trying to fit it, apparently unable to fit front seat of Daihatsu Sirion. No criticism of helpful staff intended. 13 February 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Guard BUT beware no spare parts from Halfords Bought this product just under 12 months ago and once fitted (easier with two people as the mesh section is quite heavy) it has proved to be very good with the opening section particularly useful, The metal mesh section is well made and apart from the occasional rattle from the vertical roof supports has proved to be well designed and robust. However, the plastic mounting brackets have proved to be the Achilles heel of this product. Our two retrievers must have put their weight on the guard and snapped the bracket where it fits around the headrest post - a weak point in the design Halfords Customer Service who were very helpful tried to trace spare parts but apparently their spare parts department have no dealings with the manufacture and cannot supply any spares. So a £70 dog guard is rendered useless for want of a plastic bracket. Not good for a Halfords branded product. Fortunately you can get parts direct from the company ( Lead Innovations) but at £9 for two small plastic fittings ( one to replace the broken part and a spare) its is not cheap hence the low ratings for value and quality . 22 December 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Product shame about the instructions Overall this is a good product with the main benefit of having an opening panel to get access to your dog (if necessary to attach/remove a lead). The build quality seems reasonable for the money although the installation is a bit on the fiddly side. The main downside is that the instructions are diagrams rather than words and not as clear as they might be. The mounting are quite clever but it can take a bit of looking at in order to work out how it fits (if you are left with any spare bits you have probably not done it right!). Although you might think it will only take a couple of mins to fit, you allow 20 mins for the first time. Once the brackets are mounted to the headrests the bars can be taken off in a minute or so. 27 October 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great gaurd great price Gaurd was easy to fit in minutes. great fit for our picasso. Value for money. 01 October 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A great choice for us We needed a dog guard for the car and this seemed an obvious choice for us. Easily fitted to headrests with adjustable feet pushing up to the roof, the width is adjustable too. We had it fitted within a few minutes (with two people for ease). We like the fact that if we are driving without the dog the guard can slide open to give a clear view of the road behind. it is also nice to be able to access our dog when travelling... she likes to push her head through and rest her head on the centre headrest. However, once the guard is closed, she is held securely in the boot. 10 September 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Easy to use, robust and such a good idea if you have a puppy or dog that jumps out of the car as soon as the boot is open as you can put a lead on first. Would advise that you have it fitted by the staff as they are great. 24 August 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy access is a major advantage The product can be fitted to rear or front seats - we used the front seats because our dog rides on the back seat. This leaves a gap between the front seats but we solve this by using a hammock-style seat cover, which fastens to the headrests on the rear and front seats. Our dog accepted the new arrangement very quickly and it obviates the need for a harness. Fitting is rather complicated and best done by the Halfords staff, who were very helpful. When completed the fitting is very secure. 19 August 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Abysmal Service After reading the positive reviews, I too went to my local Bolton store to buy this dog guard. I was surprised to find it was £10 dearer, even more surprised to be quoted £12.50 for fitting such a small item, and fuming to be told that they didn't fit this one, only the mesh ones. As a pensioner with a nasty back injury I am unable to do this myself, otherwise the situation would not have arisen, and I certainly wouldn't have thought it too difficult for a Halfords member of staff to fit it. Icing on the cake was the video playing at the rear of the paydesk, of Halfords staff fitting various items, one of them being the self same dog guard.. 19 August 2015
