Please do not underestimate the clips on these leashes, the clip will outlive the fabric part of the leash, your dog, and most probably you! Once you feel your leash has worn out, just keep the clip and add a new leash of your choice!
A note about our Leash clips. We have chosen to use hardware and from a Marine Supplier made of Stainless Steel 316 as we wanted to use the best metal fixing we could. Most collars and leashes use a zinc alloy which is coated with a thin coat of steel like finish. The coating soon comes away making the hardware look dull and this compromises the strength of the metal fixing as alloy is cast and tends to be brittle and prone to snapping. Marine Grade Stainless steel is made of solid steel with no coating. If corrosion does start to show you can lightly sand back with a fine nail file or emory board. We recommend the use of natural remedies, lime juice, vinegar or baking soda work well and can be applied with aluminium foil. The important thing about stainless steel is that the small amounts of rust that may occur will not compromise the strength of the metal hardware. Rinsing your collars and leashes in clean water and allowing to air dry helps is really important and we recommend taking quick action if you do start to see any small spots of rust.
