This is a review of a Pet Gear Tri-Fold Dog Ramp
The Pet Gear Tri Fold Ramp is quite large in size measuring 177.8 x 50.8 x 7.6 cm, its width nearly measuring half a metre, so it’s nice and long and nice and wide. It is very heavy for a dog ramp and older people may struggle with getting it out and unfolding it. There is a carry handle to the top of the ramp which has been designed well to carry the weight of it, so thats a positive. Next to the carry handle is a hook which attaches around a nodule on the outer section of the ramp and holds it all together when not in use and folded up.
To assemble you will need to unclip at the top of the ramp and unwind the three sections out, this will be a lot easier and quicker if there are two of you to set it up.
The surface is a texture similar to sand paper, it’s a really grippy grip tape that has been glued on to the ramp, this helps to provide stability for your dog however it makes it quite scratchy when are trying to carry it so beware of you have bare legs as the surface of it may hurt also it may damage the fabric you are wearing if you knock it against yourself.
In terms of width this is a very wide ramp, possibly the widest available at 50.8 cm, this along with being mighty strong will enable an elderly dog that is even extra large in size to use this ramp with ease. Its weight, size and style makes it very very sturdy to use. There is also a safety feature to car end of the ramp so that you can attach it to a strong hook point in the boot, the feature can be fastened tightly to provide extra security that the ramp will not move while your dog walks up or down it. We really liked this feature and the last thing you want is for it to fall when in use.
