Re: Pet Barrier / Compartment Partition

Sorry, I did install the barrier but it was night time and then my wife wanted it removed right away... said it made her feel like she was driving a cop car... LOL. So no pics yet. We have to take the dogs in to the kennel in a couple weeks, I'll be sure to get some day-time pics then.

I can say the Traval is definitely a quality piece but took me about 15 minutes to install/adjust it the first time. The directions show you leaving one support arm off and then once the barrier is in place, re-attaching... still a bit of a tight squeeze. The install will probably go faster next time, now that I know how it goes in.

The fit is very good and there is no movement, seems very secure. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a sturdy pet barrier. Hope this helps.

J

Re: Pet Barrier / Compartment Partition

Digging up an old thread here. How do the panels hold up over the long term with the traval pet barrier in place? My concern is that the panels around the window would begin to warp to confirm to the pressure put on them, especially in a hot climate.

The Travall lower support arms push down right near the seam where the C-pillar vertical and horizontal trim pieces meet (see pic above), causing the gap to open up slightly. I could see this leading to a deformation of the plastics over time. I probably would not leave the Travall barrier installed more than a few days, especially in high-heat environments. I only use mine on occasion, the five-minute install is not too much of a hassle to remove/install, as needed.

Re: Pet Barrier / Compartment Partition

Much as I hate to admit it, the accessory pet barrier in my el-cheapo Saturn Vue is better-integrated and more user-friendly than any solution I can find for a JGC. It has a spring-loaded top rod that connects to keyhole slot brackets mounted to the roof structure, and clips at the bottom that mount to the factory tie-downs. Pretty slick design. It's quick and easy to install/remove. Too bad nothing like that is available for the Jeep
