Product looks great, but the thumb screws are impossible to use effectively. They require a talented contortion finger artist to get them to work properly. Go to the hardware store and replace them with more appropriate wingnuts/screws. I don't think that I should have to do that, however, with a new purchase. In addition, my medium size lab figured out how to work her way through the bars because the screws did not stay tight. The "feet" are very hard to manipulate into place. There was some damage to my interior where the pressure bars met the ceiling. When it's all said and done, I wish this barrier was easier to install and perform properly--I love the esthetics of the product and the design.,Looked better than other similar products on line, when the product arrived I was not disappointed! Solid construction, hightly adjustibility (actually fits in my Subaru wagon upside down better than right side up), no rattles and looks good too. The one thing that could be better is the thumbscrew bolts used to tighten the adjustible legs... there is no way anyone with anything short of bionic fingers could get the thumbscrews tight enough to secure the adjustable legs from sliding. As a result the barrier has a tendancy to work loose when bumped. Easily fixed though... I went to the hardware store and purchased a couple 6mm set screws to replace the thumb screws it came with. Using an allen wrench I can easily tighten the set screws enough to secure the adjustable legs. Keeping the allen wrench handy in the car makes for easy removal, reinstallation and adjustment. I'd suggest the manufacturer upgrade the thumb screw assemblies to something more securable by hand to take this product from good to excellent!,It's nice and light. Handsome. Adjusts to fit pretty easily. However, it is fixed into place by pressing between the ceiling and the floor. One first extends the legs and tightens thumbscrews to hold the legs at length. Then one turns a threaded fitting at the bottom to really apply enough pressure to keep it in place. The problem is: the thumbscrews don't hold. A few bumps in the road and the legs start to collapse and the whole thing falls down. The thumbscrews have a plastic knob molded over a steel bolt. When you attempt to put enough torque on the thumbscrews to hold, the plastic knob rounds off against the steel and simply spins. Go to your hardware store and buy 2 metric bolts with the same thread count and throw away the thumbscrews. Other reviewers here have suggested using zip ties to their head rests.,We took our time looking for a good dog barrier for our SUV. This is exactly what we were looking for! It was easy to install and in addition to working great it also looks good. It keeps our 70 pound boxer happily behind the seat and he can no longer use the top of the back seats for his head rest! Thank you for an excellent product!,Bought this for a 98 Deville (not an SUV), and use bungee cords around the front headrests to hold it in place. The slider horizontal bars slide out and fit well.
