The MIM Safe Variocage – The Safest Dog Cage on the Market for Travel! Print

  • May 30, 2016


If you travel with your pets, which many of us do, you want to make sure that your pet is safe and secure while driving.  We know how many crazy drivers there are on the roads and as we put on our seat belts every time we drive, our pets need their own way to keep secure.  And that is what the MIM Safe Variocage does for your pet.  The MIM Safe Variocage is the only crash test certified and approved dog cage on the market and the most rigorously tested and proven dog transport cage in the world!

What is the MIM Safe Variocage?

The MIM Safe Variocage is a safe, sturdy dog cage that fits in any vehicle and truly protects your dog.  The MIM Safe Variocage comes in four adjustable models and 14 sizes to fit every car and dog (or cat)! It also includes a built-in key lock for security which, if in an accident, your trapped dog can be released through the unique escape hatch. The built in escape hatch is a really important safety feature which makes it possible to remove your dog from your car after an accident if the cage won’t open or you don’t have your keys handy.

The MIM Safe Variocage is easily adjustable which is great if you need to switch cars. All Variocage models are equipped with tie-down straps for securing the cage to cargo anchor points. Safety locks with keys are also included. Additionally, all cages have the ability to be equipped with a comfortable crate pad designed to fit most Variocage models.

Below are just some of the incredible safety features of the awesome MIM Safe Variocage:

  • ONLY Crash Tested Dog Cage Rated Using Government Safety Standards.
  • Perfect Track Record of Safety for over a Decade.
  • Locking Doors with Gas Hydraulic Motion Springs.
  • Built-In Key Lock for Security.
  • Padlock Mounting Tabs for Added Protection.
  • High-Quality Powder Coated Steel Construction.
  • Emergency Escape Hatch for Added Safety.
  • Built-In Crumple Zone Absorbs Impact.
  • Installs Easily in Car with Load Tested Straps to Anchor Points.

How does the MIM Safe Variocage compare to other dog cages?

The MIM Safe Variocage is made of steel with telescopic tubes and two individual parts for the floor and roof, which allows for adjustment of the cage length. This adjustable feature also benefits crash safety by working with the vehicle’s crumple zone. In a rear-end collision, the floors, ceilings and the telescopic tubes will be pushed together. This reduces the risk of injury for all vehicle passengers, dogs and humans.

The MIM Safe Variocage is the safest dog cage one the market!

The MIM Safe Variocage is designed and constructed to deliver the highest level of safety. The MIM Safe Variocage is the only dog cage on the market that is proven to withstand impacts of all types of collisions.  The MIM Safe Variocage is the ONLY proven Crash Tested Dog Cage in the WORLD that has a perfect track record of safety going on over 12 years.

MIM Safe Variocage is the only cage on the market that has been crash tested for performance in both front and rear collisions. It has also been tested in a situation that simulates a vehicle rollover. In all cases, the Variocage outperformed all other cages on the market and met or exceeded the safety standards applied by the testing organization.  The MIM Safe Variocage has been certified to meet or exceed stringent crash test safety standards established by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.  That is one safe dog cage!

Traveling with a pet that isn’t restrained is dangerous for you and your pet

There are so many reasons why traveling with an unrestrained pet is not recommended and could be dangerous:  an unrestrained dog can be a distraction while driving, increasing your risk of having an accident;  If you get in an accident, an unrestrained dog will impact whatever it hits with a force equivalent to several thousand pounds of energy.  And if the dog escapes, the poor pup is at risk of being hit by another vehicle.

The MIM Safe Variocage has been a hit with customers from day one.  Variocage received a 100% buyer satisfaction rating and the business grew purely by word of mouth and customer referrals.  If you care about your dog’s safety while traveling, you really need to take a look and get your dog the safest dog cage on the market:  Go to 4 x 4 America to get the right size for your car (and check out their other products!)  You will feel so much better the next time you travel with your pet!

About 4 x 4 America

Traveling with their pets, Richard Casey and Janice Iannelli worried about their safety. Driving with two eager 50+ pound  canines bouncing and sometimes tumbling around the car was often a stressful experience and clearly dangerous.  With that in mind, Janice went on a quest to find a crash tested dog crate designed to keep both dogs and people safe. Her research turned up only one crate proven to meet all criteria – the MIM Safe Variocage from Sweden.

When Casey discovered this exceptional dog crate was not available in the USA, he met with MIM Construction and arranged to become the exclusive importer and authorized distributor for North America.  4×4 North America is committed to educating the public about safe pet travel.  Nothing compares to the products offered by 4×4 North America.  See for yourself!
