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
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!
Beautiful handsfree set that’s so easy to use and the quality is unparalleled. I got this with a 4ft leash and it’s definitely our preferred length!
Arya and I love this leash and the handsfree adapter is a game changer for our walk. It's so easy to use. Also the material is amazing soft and feel durable! (Ive go the 4foot leash and the handsfree adapter)
I purchased the leash adapter with a 4ft strange tails leash and I honestly could not be more thrilled. The quality is superior to any other biothane leashes I’ve found, I get compliments from other dog owners almost every time I’m on a walk. It’s perfect in length for our city sidewalk walks, and comfortable for both myself and my pup. During training sessions I can detach the adapter and have a bit more length to work with. I would absolutely recommend this amazing leash adapter to anyone and will be purchasing some long line leashes from Strange Tails next!
This leash adapter has been an absolute godsend for me. I'm a small person walking two dogs at a time, one who is energetic and pulls. The leash adapter keeps me firm in my pace even with a pulling dog - I wear it around my hips for maximum stability. It does loosen up slightly over the course of a long walk, but easily adjusts back into place. Perfect for runs. I won't take my dog anywhere without it now. Paired with the biothane leash it's stylish, comfortable, and functional. Best investment I've made for me and my springer!
