Replacement for both ends of leash:


Works like a dream. Made a fix for my mystic leash with no cutting, splicing etc.
Hey, wrogu. If you replace both ends of the leash with the clip shown, aren't you giving up your quick release mechanism? That's a safety concern, isn't it? :o
Nope. I replaced both original carabiners, safety mechanism ... is safety mechanism,it was untouched and remained the same. I will try to post a pic later.

P.S. I use this kind of leash:
Hi Wrogu,
I'm trying to create the same leash setup as you, I've got the carabiners, can you please explain how you did it to the mystic leash without cutting anything, or maybe post a pic of what you did, I can see how you did the one at the release end, but the kite end looks like i need to cut the piece of plastic tube to get the carabiner off thanks!

No cutting was needed at the kite end. I managed to do an oridiary connection same one as you do with a ring and a pigtail -> just like you do with a NKB bar and suicide ring and safety line: ... de_png.png

I will get my leash back in a couple of days .... lost luggage in transit :|
