I ordered the Travall pet barrier because I was tired of trying the one-size-fits-all barriers from the chain pet stores. They are all terrible and rely on putting pressure into the ceiling of the vehicle to remain in place. I have a 2 month old boy who's car seat is right there wear our dog tries to climb through. I won't risk a cheap product. Another thing to consider is cargo in the back area. Groceries, tools, luggage... they can be deadly in a head on collision or a roll over. I whole heartedly feel that the Travall barrier would keep pets and gear in the back where it belongs and would keep my family safe. Well worth the money if you ask me.
The good: No rattle. Very strong, well built. Designed for each vehicle individually. Doesn't damage the floor or ceiling of the vehicle, or anthing in the vehicle as far as I can tell.
The minor issues: The instuctions are great, but the four hooked pieces that contact the C Pillar are two sizes. The instructions don't say which go on top or bottom. I found that the slightly longer hooks fit better on the bottom. Also, the straight hooks with threads that hold the barrier in place were a little short in my 2012. Easy fix with a couple medium duty zip ties or some 550 cord. If pulled at the top end from the cargo area, it can move a little. But not far. These three tiny things aren't enough, to me, to knock it down to four stars. Great product.
