Thanks for your concern about the lookout car seats. The option you posted is interesting but won't work for mine as she needs to be able to see me to be content. Many times my front passenger seat it occupied. Overall I feel the rear seat is safer anyway.
I'm looking at the lookout as more a seat then a safety device anyway. I have a solv-it harness that has been crash tested and feel confident it is a safe choice.
As far as rear windows shattering and causing injury to a car's occupants (canine or human), I can tell you after covering hundreds if not more accidents in my career, I have never seen it happen. Car windows, which are made of tempered glass are designed, when they break, to stay in a single sheet and not shatter into shards the way a broken cup might.
Most bodily injury is caused by people not being properly restrained in a seatbelt or impact from the car's interiors like the fan of the car. At the speeds necessary for that kind of damage. A padded seat is not going to help much.
Which of the Lookouts do you have the I or II? What sizes do you have?
