Handsfree Leash Adapter
Our Biothane Handsfree Leash Adapter is designed as a separate item that is compatible with any Strange Tails leash, or other leash with a clasp at each end. It can easily be adjusted to a wide range of sizes to accommodate being worn around the hips or across the body.
We use a double ‘O' ring adjustment mechanism that is super secure, which prevents the adapter from cinching tight when your dog pulls, or becoming loose while being active. The design also features two keepers, in any accent colour of your choosing, to keep the tail of the adjustment mechanism nice and tightly held in place.
We wanted to create a product that could build upon the existing versatility offered by our leashes. Our adapter system gives you the ability to quickly and easily convert your regular leash into handsfree mode and back, allowing you to adapt to your environment.
There are a wide range of configurations, including:
↟ Around the hips
↟ Regular leash
↟ Clip the adapter around a fixed object for quick tie outs
We recommend pairing our handsfree adapter with our 4ft leashes. The handsfree adapter does not come with a Strange Tails moon charm.
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. It is not recommended for use by children or the elderly.
It's important to connect the handsfree adapter properly - please see the "How to Use" tab for more information.
NOTE: This listing is for the handsfree adapter ONLY. Leashes must be purchased separately.
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 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 to the trigger snap on the adapter - doing so can cause the handsfree adapter to become unclipped and damage the hardware.
Biothane is a coated webbing material that is strong, flexible and lightweight. We use the "Super Heavy" Biothane for all of our products which has a substantial and luxe feel to it. 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!
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 - that's it!
Handsfree Leash Adapter
I refuse to use a regular leash again. I love being able to take my dog on walks without having to use both hands all the time, and it is so nice to be able to take him in public without having to hold onto him at all times.
The adapter looks great (such vibrant colours!) and it’s amazing to have my hands free when walking the puppy. Means I have quick access to anything I might need, more freedom of movement and can even act quickly if he tries to eat something the shouldn’t.
I cannot say enough good things about the hands free adapter. Our pyrenees is 120lbs and can be dog reactive while on leash, and our strangetails biothane is amazing for exactly this. He walks great loose leash and I get to be hands free!
I loved the idea of a hands free leash and thought these looked great. I was nervous about whether I’d like the material as I hadn’t heard of biothane before. It arrived today and I’m so obsessed. Colours are so vibrant (I got cedar with moss accents in my leash & adapter set), hardware is sturdy and the material feels like it will last a long time. Will be recommending to everyone I know!
We love our handsfree adapter! I wasn’t sure how it would work with our dog, who is 90 lbs and forgets her loose leash manners a lot. But it actually works so well for pulling too because it does not put too much pressure on your shoulders but still makes our dog look back because it tugs when she has reached the end. This is so convenient when there isn’t anywhere to tie her leash while we’re sitting or if we need to hold a lot of stuff. We can’t wait to use it with the longline while hiking. And it’s so cute! This is what first brought me to Strange Tails, and I’m so glad I got it!
