Free Running Loop

Posted by Simon Harrison on Sunday, September 3, 2017 Under: New Products

This is one of my Multi-Length Leather Dog Leads with the addition of a free running solid brass ring.
But what is it?
A running ring is placed between the trigger hook and the handle. It is free to move around along the length of the lead, but it will not slide off as it is smaller than the trigger hook and handle.
What can it do?
If you attach your trigger hook to the ring you have a nice slip collar. Great for when your dog returns and you find that they have lost their collar! (I make these as well!!!). Or if you find a lost dog that you need to secure. On a Multi-Length lead you can loop the free running end around your shoulders enabling hands-free use with your dog attached to the other end of the lead. Great for jogging and for Police and Military handlers that need their hands free to do other things such as holding their weapon or handcuffs.

So you want one of the free running loops on your lead? Simply leave a note in the comments or tick the option when ordering your handmade leather lead
