Where would I find a good safety harness for dog car riding?

I have the Sleepypod Clickit Sport for both of my collies.

It is really well made but I don't know if I would recommend it.  Tasha tolerates wearing it but doesn't like it.  Mattie will sit still for only a few minutes and then manages to twist herself around and get all tangled up in the harness and seat belt.  It works ok for trips no longer then 1 1/2 hours but after that I can tell that Tasha is really uncomfortable and not happy.  I think the problem is that they can't move around at all.  

I'm thinking of getting this seat belt tether to use with the harness.   My hope is that it will be short enough to keep the dogs safe but allow them a bit of freedom to shift position in the seat.

Hopefully others will chime in with their experiences.

I just put mine in the boot of the car, parcel shelf and the lot still on. She just lies down and sleepa. She hasn't known any different plus handy if she gets wet and muddy

I have heard good things about the "Sleepypod" that T & M uses and I saw a great crash test on them that convinced me. I would love to use them but they are a little pricey for me right now. In the meantime I use harnesses with a wide breast plate and seat belt extensions. I also use a car hammock that attaches to the head rests of the back seats and the back of the front seat head rests, It presents slipping into the foot well.
