Measure your pet and compare your pet's dimensions to the seats' interior dimensions. Also, measure your console's dimensions and compare to the seats' exterior dimensions. Since all vehicle consoles vary, the size you order will need to reflect the size of the space available in your vehicle as well as the size of your pet.
Installation instructions for all Console Lookout Pet Car Seats
These instructions will be more easily understood when you have the product in front of you in the car and are installing the item.
The first time you install this product you should have a helper.
Look at your Console Lookout Pet Car Seat from the front. Face it as it sits on the vehicle's console. The front (closest to the windows) has one strap threaded through the front end at the bottom. That strap goes under the lid of the console. The rear of the Console Lookout Pet Car Seat has a central safety strap threaded through it. It is sticking up and from that safety strap hangs two very long containment straps. In the middle of that safety strap is a loop that the safety leash strap threads through. It has a hook at one end, much like the hook on a leash. That is what is sticking up on the inside of the seat.
The Console Lookout Pet Car Seat includes five straps: The safety strap at the rear, the safety leash strap inside of the seat, two containment straps that hang from the safety strap on each side, and one front strap. The front strap that goes under the lid of the console prevents the seat from tilting to the rear. The safety leash strap (which is centered and threaded into the rear of the console) is the connection point for the containment straps underneath and it attaches the safety leash strap to the dog, anchoring the pet to the seat. The containment straps are the straps that anchor the seat to the car.
Place the Console Lookout Pet Car Seat topside up as it should be, on the console with the safety strap to the back end and the front strap facing forward. Lift the console lid, wrap the single front strap under the lid and tighten if needed. When the console snaps shut, this strap simply prevents the console from tilting and is not intended as security in braking or accidents. Unlock the two containment straps at the bottom on the left and right rear of the Console Lookout Pet Car Seat.
Starting in the driver's seat where the cushion meets the back of the seat, thread one side of the containment strap between the upper seat cushion and lower seat cushion. Reconnect (lock them with the clasp lock) them into a circle at the back of each seat. Adjust the straps to tighten the seat to the console. Repeat on the passenger side.
Another option for connecting the containment straps at the rear of the seats is the metal rail under each seat. When your seat slides forward or back it does so on a metal track under the seat. Instead of threading the straps through each seat, follow this example:
Using containment strap on the driver's side, for example - Open the loop and take one end and bring it to the back of the seat; reach under the seat to your right, find the rail, slide the strap under and around it, pull it out from under the seat and relock it to the other side of the containment strap forming a circle. Do the same for the passenger side containment strap.
Once in position you may choose to leave the containment straps there permanently even when removing the console itself, so you don't have to repeat this process.
Notice that the safety leash strap is threaded through a loop that comes up the inside of the seat. This safety leash strap attaches to your pet's harness. Tighten the safety leash strap to keep your pet securely in the seat. DO NOT ATTACH THE SAFETY LEASH STRAP TO A COLLAR. Using a collar versus a harness may choke your pet or cause serious injury in the event of a hard stop or accident.
To remove the seat, simply open the buckles on the containment straps where it locks to the safety strap and remove the seat. Close the buckles and leave the containment straps in place for use later.
