Measuring your Dog Measuring your Vehicle Variocage Dimensions

Every seventh traffic accident is a rear collision. MIM Variocages are constructed of steel to meet the highest level of safety, and they are the only dog crates on the market that are built to meet the demands of a rear-end collision. They are flexible enough to absorb impact, but strong enough to retain their shape. MIM Variocages are carefully crafted so that no feature on the crate can hurt the dog. In addition, they are designed with an escape door in the rear so that you can get your dog out of either side of the crate in the event of an accident. When properly installed, the cages are quiet. All models are equipped with tie-down straps for securing to cargo anchor points, a rubber mat, and safety locks (keys included). The quality of the Variocages is incredible; they are designed to last a lifetime.

The MIM Variocage Single safety crate is designed to provide protection while leaving space for other cargo. It is available in four sizes. The length of the crates can be adjusted for the size of your car, so a minimum and maximum length is listed for each size.

Protect yourself, your family and your pet from the devastating effects of a collision, where lesser restraints may allow your dog to become a deadly projectile within the vehicle. 

Reduce the risks in a serious rear-end collision, where the Variocage mimics the function of the vehicle’s crumple-zones, greatly diminishing the possible injuries to your dog and passengers. 

Don’t just take our word for it. The MIM Safe Variocage has been certified to meet or exceed stringent crash test safety standards established by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe

The Variocage comes in 4 adjustable models and 14 sizes; there is sure to be one that fits your vehicle and the needs of your dog. 

Variocage includes a built-in key lock for security. In the event of an accident, a trapped dog can be released via the unique escape hatch. All models are equipped with a rubber carpet for comfort, quiet, and ease of cleaning. 

Why choose MIM Safe Variocage?


  • MIM Safe Variocage is the only cage on the market today that has been crash tested for performance in both front and rear collisions. It has also been subjected to a drop test that simulates a vehicle rollover. The crash tests were conducted by the Technical Research Institute of Sweden. In all cases, the Variocage outperformed all other cages on the market and met or exceeded the safety standards applied by the testing organization.
  • MIM Safe Variocage is adjustable. You can adjust to compensate for differences in vehicle cargo areas. This can be a great advantage if you need to change vehicles.
  • Variocage includes a built-in key lock for security. Pet owners also have the ability to secure the cage with a padlock.
  • MIM Safe Variocage features an escape hatch. This very important feature allows you to remove your dog from the vehicle after a collision in the event the cage or vehicle hatch will not open or if your keys are unavailable.
  • MIM Safe Variocage contains a ribbed rubber mat for the bottom of the cage. This mat provides a comfortable surface for your dog and makes clean-up a snap.

How does the MIM Safe Variocage compare to other dog cages?

The MIM Safe Variocage is constructed of steel with telescopic tubes and two individual parts for the floor and roof, which allows for adjustment of the cage length. This adjustable feature also benefits crash safety by working with the vehicle’s crumple zone. In a rear-end collision, the floors, ceilings and the telescopic tubes will be pushed together. This reduces the risk of injury for all vehicle passengers – canine and human. 

When MIM Safe crash tested a regular steel cage with a solid frame, it broke the back seat. The MIM Safe Variocage has a crumple zone just like the car, which means that it will deform – just like your vehicle will – in reaction to a severe impact. This feature allows the rear seat to remain intact reducing the risk of injury to humans. 

The MIM Safe Variocage also reduces the risk of injury to your dog because it is designed to minimize puncture wounds and lacerations from the cage material. 

The structural integrity of Variocage prevents your dog from becoming a dangerous flying object, being thrown from the vehicle or escaping after an accident. The escape hatch allows you to easily remove your dog from the cage in the event that the rear cargo door cannot be opened. 

Variocage Accident

In the above photo, taken shortly after an accident, the vehicle has been heavily damaged and the driver was taken to the hospital, but the dog travelling in the MIM Safe Variocage survived in perfect health.

MIM Safe Variocage offers the highest level of safety

Over the past twenty years, MIM Construction AB has designed and manufactured over 350 crash tested automotive safety products that are effective in reducing the risk of serious injury or death for drivers, passengers, and pets. MIM has gained extensive experience and knowledge from hundreds of crash tests where MIM designs and products have been utilized.

Variocage is based on MIM’s experience in the production of auto safety products and accessories. Variocage incorporates the same crumple zone engineering principles used by automobile manufacturers to reduce the potentially devastating impact of a serious collision.

Double cage with detachable mid-section

The Variocage Double features a movable center divider that is easily adjustable if one of the dogs needs more space. If you have a large dog or if you want to give a single dog more space, this center divider is easily removed.

The Variocage Single is safe and very practical. It is designed to provide protection while leaving sufficient space for other cargo.

If you are unable to open the Variocage front door, the escape hatch can be used. With a few simple steps, you can easily remove your dog.


Crumple zone

In a rear-end collision, the cage will compress in a controlled manner, just like the crumple zones of the car. This prevents the rear seat-back from being penetrated or pushed forward by the cage, thus minimizing the risk of damage to both the passengers and the dog.
