I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE CLIPS! WITH THE RELEASE OF PRESSURE THESE GIVE YOUR HORSE, WILL CAUSE THEM TO STOP PANICKING AND TO STOP PULLING BACK. THEY ARE ABLE TO TAKE SEVERAL STEPS BACK IF SPOOKED OR PANICKED AND CALM DOWN, WITHOUT HURTING THEMSELVES OR BREAKING ROPES AND/OR HALTERS ALL WHILE STILL BEING TIED! YOU CAN EASILY ADJUST THE RESISTANCE OF YOUR ROPE AS WELL TO SUIT YOUR INDIVIDUAL HORSES' NEEDS WITH JUST A TURN OF THE SMALL DIAL. I USE ONE WITH MORE RESISTANCE FOR MY ARAB, AND VERY LITTLE RESISTANCE FOR MY LARGE MINI. PLUS, IF YOU NEED TO MOVE YOUR HORSE, JUST UNSNAP THE CLIP FROM YOUR TIE RING, AND RESNAP IN A NEW PLACE. NO MORE KNOTS, EVER! I LEAVE A COUPLE IN MY TRAILER, SEVERAL IN MY BARN ISLE, AND I EVEN CARRY ONE IN MY SADDLE BAG. (ALONG WITH THE TETHER-RING THAT THE CLIP MANUFACTURER MAKES, AND THAT JEFFERS SHOULD CARRY IN BOTH LENGTHS!) I HAVE USED THEM FOR A COUPLE OF YRS NOW, AND I MUST SAY, I WILL NOT TIE ANYWHERE WITHOUT THEM EVER AGAIN!
Extremely helpful when a horse pulls. When used correctly during training (comes w/ instructions), it can actually aide in eliminating the desire to pull back. My gelding is proof to that! Works in cross-ties, hitch post, in & out of horse trailer, ... Have had one for each horse for years.
