Concerned about the safety of car harnesses

I just 'happened' upon this article and video about TOTAL fail rate of safety harnesses in crash test conditions. Would like to know what you think. The brands tested are NOT given. Don't understand this. Does anyone know how to get more information?

yeah we were discussing the article on our IAABC forum. A number voiced their concerns on the accuracy of this finding. To say all failed seems a little unrealistic. here's two that somone recommended http://usak9outfitters.com/CCSS.htm

We had discussion about this a few months back with lots of good feedback.

Glad to know it's been examined here. I'm a new mommy, as of April, and will be reading ALL of the previous thread. Thanks!

I've been using the steal carabiner for months now. It's working out perfectly. My brother in law cut off the top part of the seat belt hardware and I was able to put the carabiner through the base loop of the original clip on the seat belt strap. I feel so much better about traveling in the car.
