Innovative Retractable Dog Leash Hits the Market
Dec 28, 2011 01:45PM
LeashLocket™, a retractable leash in a locket, lets your dog carry the leash for a change. It is a new product offering owners attractive and unique options in a compact package. Usually $34.99, it is being offered at an introductory price of $24.99 online and at retail outlets.
“The product debuted in September and there’s nothing else like it on the market.” said LeashLocket inventor Dave Marshall. “It’s easy to use, hard to lose, and lightweight for both you and your dog to carry.” The LeashLocket design was perfected over two years with 10 engineers and pet product experts. The company states that it is the strongest retractable leash on the market, ounce for ounce, and brings instant control, safety and convenience to any walk with your pet.
Before walking, owners fasten the magnetic collar attachment provided with LeashLocket to the dog’s existing collar or harness. Then the leash is clipped to the dog like any other. At the end of the walk, the leash retracts into the locket and snaps to the collar with the locket’s magnet attachment. The dog is now carrying the leash, ready for the next outing.
A small LeashLocket, for dogs to 55 pounds, weighs 2.5 ounces and withstands 170 pounds of pull force. A larger product, weighing 4 ounces, and withstanding 280 pounds of pull force, is available for dogs to 90 pounds. Both extend nearly 6 feet—the length of a conventional leash.
LeashLocket is available online and at selected retail outlets. For more information, visit leashlocket.com.
