Another major advantage is that with the Ventlock secured between car and tailgate all but the most determined thief will be kept out. It takes only a few seconds to fit or remove and the car can be locked in the normal way using either the key or central locking. Best of all, it fits 99% of Estate Cars / Hatchbacks / Vans or 4 Wheel Drive vehicles fitted with a rear door.
Why do I need a Ventlock?
Every summer all around the world there are incidents involving dogs which are either stolen or die from heat exhaustion. It is usually as a result of having been left in a car by owners who don't take the proper precautions to see that their Pets are both secure and have good ventilation.
Of course there are times when it is convenient to leave your dog in the car. Going to shows or Competitions are a couple of examples. Even a visit to the supermarket or motorway services for just 20 minutes needs careful thought. During the summer months the inside of a car can get very hot in a short period of time. The temperature can rise from a comfortable 20 degrees to a Killer 40 degrees in a matter of minutes.
How do I fit the ventlock and how long does it take?
It takes the average person around 10 SECONDS to fit or remove a ventlock. No Tools are required and here is how to do it. Unwind the threaded hook a few turns and place it over the post or through the catch inside the car. Gently screw on the Ventlock until it is firm but not over tight. Now close the door by pushing the latch mechanism onto the free end of the Ventlock. The vehicle can now be locked in the normal way using the key or central locking.
What size Ventlock should I buy?
If the Ventlock fits your vehicle then all the sizes are available to you. There are no special sizes for different cars. If one fits, they will all fit. The choice is simply how big a gap would you like for your dogs. Ask yourself one or two basic questions and I'm sure you will come to the right decision very quickly.
- Are your dogs in a secure cage? If they are you can have as big a gap with as much ventilation as you like.
- If your dogs are not in a secure cage, then you would need to choose a Ventlock that does not let your dog get out through the gap.
A very simple test is to put your dogs in the car and then open the tailgate to create the gap you are happy with and then measure that gap and order accordingly... It really is as simple as that!
