Does it Work Wednesday: Pet Rider

Posted: Updated:
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Makers of Pet Rider claim this seat cover is water and claw-resistant.  It saves your upholstery from pet hair and more, and you can still use your seat belts while the cover is installed, but Does it Work?

Stephanie Byars and her Beagle, Melvin, take Pet Rider for a spin.  They used it for more than a week. Stephanie doesn't report any problems. It's like a big canvas tarp that fits over your seats. In fact, she has two active young boys.  She said the seat cover also protected her seats from the spills and leftovers from snacks that often end up on her car seats.

However, many viewers emailed and reported some problems with this device if your car does not have adjustable head rests.  Apparently, you need the head rests for the Pet Rider to have something to latch onto.

So, it seems in cars with bench-style seats and adjustable head rests, this is a good $15 product.   We'll give it a good grade "B" on this Does it Work test.
