    My vehicle does not have cargo hooks, can I still use this gate?

    Most vehicles have hooks or attach points in the cargo area, sometimes these can be hard to find as they are hidden behind seats or under small latch covers. If you cannot find any cargo hooks look for other areas to attach your gate like seatbelt hooks.  If you are looking for a stronger fitment, consider adding the Variobarrier, this unit is specifically designed to allow the Variogate to attach into it's base making it a stronger more complete unit together.

    Love this gate!

    We absolutely love this gate and this company! I can now comfortably fit several of my labs in the back of my minivan without crates obscuring my view out the back window. The dogs love laying all together and I love being able to open the back hatch without them all jumping out. The cross bars allow me to hang fans from the sides on hot days. We had a missing part and issue with a screw that adeopets immediately responded and took care of. Their customer service is amazing!

    Variogate in 2018 Toyota 4Runner

    We have 4 Australian Shepherds, but can't fit 4 crates in the 4Runner. We built a false floor to level out the cargo area with the back seat stowed and now have a large area for the Aussies. We also have a cargo barrier behind the driver/passenger front seats.

    Brian (Roseville, US)
    Restraining Gate/Kennel

    This Kennel or Gate needs to be secured DOWN at both ends to be stable. Recommend a piece of Ply Wood to be secured to with bolts. Use pan head bolts and Hillman 1/4X20 T-Nut with prongs. Ply Wood need to then secured to auto with straps.

    Great service and quick delivery

    I ordered the Variogate. They emailed me some questions to confirm it would work for my vehicle before shipping. Shipping was fast and installation took us 1-2 hours. We love it!

    Love it ❤️

    My dog has always been more comfortable riding in the back of my car but this was unsafe in a potential accident. I’ve tried several crating options and none fit properly in my car and/or my dog disliked it (he is crate trained). I have a new puppy that loves her crate and she still travels in that, but my other dog is now a happy car traveler again with this gate. I also purchased the vario-barrier. Both were not the easiest to put together and install (the instructions are just pictures) it took about 1.5 hrs to install each one (3 hrs total) I installed both on my own, obviously it would have been quicker with two people.
