Handsfree Leash Adapter

Size Find your size ? S


NOTE: This listing is for the handsfree adapter ONLY. Leashes must be purchased separately.  

Our Biothane Handsfree Leash Adapter a separate item that converts any Strange Tails leash into handsfree mode! It's adjustable so that it can be worn both around the waist or across the body. 

Our double ‘O' ring adjustment mechanism is super secure, and prevents the adapter from cinching tight when your dog pulls, or becoming loose while being active. 

We recommend pairing our handsfree adapter with our 4ft leashes.

Our handsfree adapter is not intended as a training tool and is recommended for pups who already have a foundation of good leash walking skills. 


We wanted to create a product that could build upon the existing versatility offered by our leashes. With our leash and handsfree adapter system, there are a wide range of configurations including:

↟ Crossbody

↟ Around the waist

↟ All the functionality of our classic leashes or traffic handle leash

↟ Pair with our longline with handle

↟ Clip the adapter around a fixed object for quick tie outs

↟ Use the handsfree adapter as a leash extender

About Biothane

Biothane is a coated webbing material that is strong, flexible and lightweight.

It's also waterproof, stink-proof, and stain-proof, making it extremely easy to care for and clean. This makes it our material of choice for pups that love to swim or get dirty!

We use the "Super Heavy" Biothane for all of our leashes, handsfree adapters and classic collars which has a substantial and luxe feel to it. Our adjustable quick release collars and martingale collars use the "Standard" Biothane.

Care Guide

One of the best things about Biothane is how easy it is to care for and clean. Simply soak your gear in warm soapy water as needed. You can use an old toothbrush to scrub away any stubborn dirt. Rinse away any remaining dirt and soap residue with clean water.

Solid brass hardware naturally oxidizes as it ages. It can leave tarnish marks against the biothane, especially on the lighter colours.

To remove tarnish marks, we recommend using a magic eraser or a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Please ensure to thoroughly rinse your product with soap and water before using your gear again.

While Biothane is easy to clean, it does still get dirty. Please keep in mind that lighter colours will show dirt and tarnish marks more easily, and will require more frequent cleaning to keep looking fresh!

How to Use

It's important to connect the handsfree adapter properly, both to ensure the safety of your dog, as well as your comfort.

To connect the hands free adapter, adjust it to the desired length and clip the trigger snap on the adapter to the furthest O-ring on the adapter. It should look like a circle if you lay it flat. You can clip it across your body or around your waist.

The leash should be fully extended when connected to the handsfree adapter, as illustrated in the below photo. The trigger snap on the leash attaches to the same O-ring that the trigger snap on the adapter attaches to.

Do not attach the trigger snap on the leash onto the trigger snap on the adapter. Do not clip the D-ring on the handle onto the O-ring of the adapter.

Doing so may cause the leash to become unclipped from the handsfree adapter and may cause damage to the hardware.

Handsfree Leash Adapter


across the body

around the waist

This Handsfree adapter is a life saver! Training my pup to loose leash walk has become a breeze with this. I’m able to loop my treat ouch through the adapter and am able to grab treats and feed with ease. You can feel how high quality it is and it is so simple to adjust. Love that it works with the long line and shorter leashes. This makes it so simple to go from handle to hands free!

In love with this company, the beauty and quality of the product are impeccable! I highly recommend.

long line handle leash, collar, and hands free handle

I purchased these for my two puppers. Game changer on walks. They love the long leash freedom to smell and enjoy walks. It’s easy to me to handle as well. I have a great Pyrenees and Husky.

I absolutely love this gear!

Having experimented with various hands-free leashes over the years, I've consistently encountered shortcomings—until I found Strange Tails! What sets this brand apart is not just its exceptional quality and craftsmanship but also its unmatched versatility. The level of customization available is a game-changer for me. I've yet to use it extensively, but even in the short time I have, I'm thoroughly impressed.

What I love most is how Strange Tails caters to every adventure. While the 4' lines are perfect for navigating busy parks and neighborhoods, I'm already planning to order longer lines for our mountain hikes. The thoughtfulness in design becomes apparent as I explore its capabilities.
If you're in search of a hands-free leash that truly stands out, look no further than Strange Tails.
I'll eventually have some amazing videos and photos to share on my social media, but until then, this will have to do! :)

The only leash you need

The leash x hands free adapter is the perfect combination of stylish, top-tier quality, and functionality. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Going hands free is unmatched on walks to free up space to hand out treats and pick up poop. My dog is quite the puller when she sees dogs and rabbits and I find it even easier to be hands free when she does, knowing that there is no way she could get away from me.

My shoulders thank you

I have a 75lb GSD, and using the handsfree adaptor along the leash with traffic handle has saved my busted joints. I was looking for something that could offer the freedom of hands-free walking, while still giving me enough control if my dog decided to lunge for chaos, and this combo is it. I've used a ton of biothane leashes over the years and this one is sturdier than most, especially the hardware. Even if my dog pulls, I have enough control that my joints (and my dog) don't get hurt. I wasn't sure if the leash & adaptor would be strong enough for my reactive wolf, but they absolutely are and our walks are so much more enjoyable now
