What I was looking for! -

I have a Ford C-Max and I was happy when I found this on Orvis. I tried it yesterday and it works perfectly. As Customer service mentioned in one of the previous reviews, the distance between the front and back seat is important. As the C-Max is not a big car, it fit like a glove. I have a 147 pound Leonberger and now I know he is safer in the back (he had fallen in the gap between the seats many times).
Great solution -

I have this Kurgo backseat bridge. We've had it for over a year and it works very well. I have 2 Labs that weight in between 65 and 70 pounds respectively and it's been a great solution to giving them more room on the backseat and keeping them from falling into the gap when brakeing. I use this in conjunction with an inexpensive "hammock" to keep the seats clean and hair free. I was worried at first that it would be too flimsy, but it's held up well and I'm happy to say was an ideal solution when we added the 2nd Lab to our family. Our larger yellow boy often sleeps on the extender portion with his back to the back of the front seats and it holds his weight without problem. Boths pups are secured by a zipline and harness to help with sudden stops, but still have room to move about. I do have to periodically readjust the straps to retighten them, but I've otherwise had no issues.
Need to improve -
It's very light weight and functional. Exactly what i want. But it's thin, not sturdy enough. If it can be made of more solid sustance, that would be perfect. I don't suggest to use it for over 25kg dogs.

This product has been tested with twice the recommended weight of 100 lbs. It is important to note that the distance between the front and back seat is important. According to the manufacturer of the product, the Backseat Bridge was designed to support up to 100 lbs. by distributing the weight of the dog between four points on the back of the front seats and the back bench seat. The Bridge was tested at a maximum recommended distance of 13" from the back of the front seat to the backseat edge with a distributed weight of twice the maximum recommended load.
For want of 5 inches -
We got this for our 2014 Subaru Forester. Generally, it works pretty well. Here is the issue. When my petite wife drives, she moves the front seat forward. Off comes that side of the extender. If only it were 4 to 6 inches wider. For smaller cars it should work fine.

Sorry, really worthless! Not chew proof. The divider does not tighten enough to hold the piece between the front seats, very flimsy! Dogs flatten it & use it to sit on. Why would you put a drink holder on the dog side of divider, promotes the dog to have something to chew & not accessible for pass/driver? didn't work..larger dogs would crush!
