Choosing The Right MIM Safe Variocage.
Check to see if your vehicle has a raised sill at the rear cargo entrance. If the sill is raised, you should put something flat under the cage so its doors can open correctly. We recommend rigid foam board insulation to minimize interference with your car’s crumple zone. The floor of the cargo area should be flat.
1. Measure the narrowest usable area across the floor of the cargo area where you would position the crate (A)
(Note: The narrowest usable area is often between the rear wheel wells or at the bottom of the cargo door entrance.)
2. Measure the top of the cargo area which is typically narrower than the usable floor space (B)
(Note: The left and right side of the dog cage are angled. Total cage width is approximately 4″ narrower at the top.)
3. Measure the usable length of the cargo floor from the back seat to the door sill (C)
(Note: The front and back of the dog cage are angled. Total cage length is approximately 12″ narrower at the top.)
4. Measure the height from the cargo floor to the lowest point at the top of the cargo door entrance (D)
(Note: Be sure to measure the shortest point which is often at the sides of the cargo entrance not in the middle.)
