K9 Cord® is a leading manufacturer of "upcycled" products for the pet market. Upcycling repurposes existing materials into new products without carbon intensive processes associated with total recycling.

No termination cover to come off and pose choking hazard. A corrosion resistant chrome plated spring snap hook for the pet end. Hardware Strength rating is 400 lbf. Made in U.S.A.
