Worth every Penny

Should have made this decision 2 years ago when my dog ate my seat the first time. Now, instead of $400 it is costing me $1400 because he ate it a second time. This is by far, the best barrier I could find in the states. The 4 star is because, I need a straight headrest mount due to the nature of my headrests in a 2018 Nissan Armada. The curved design digs into the upholstered headrests a bit as shown in the pics. I wish they offered a strait mount off the back of the headrest. Other than that, it' s perfect!

Difficulty tightening knobs

Looks and feels very well made. Exception is the lack of being able to tighten the knobs enough to hold the barrier in place on the headrest posts. Tightening causes the knobs to come off the nuts inside them which negates their use. Other than being a little loose the barrier appears to be quite effective - though I really don't want to have to find out by getting into an accident. I feel safe and secure with it installed.

Vario Barrier

Great customer service, answered all my question very quickly and confirmed which models would work on my car. Arrived within a week of ordering. Highly recommend AdeoPets.


This fit perfectly in my Porsche Macan. Super secure and high quality materials! Adeo pets offered support the entire time and ensured I would have the right fit to avoid having to return etc if it did not. Really appreciate that they took time to reach out vs. Just shipping me a product. Would highly recommend!

Great after some adjustments

I bought the barrier for a VW ID.4. Assembly took some time. It also took me a couple attempts to get it installed properly (the first time it was too low and affected my ability to see out the back). Now I am satisfied with it and it seems strong enough to withstand the force of a dog or cargo in the event of an accident.
