Customize/Change the hardware on your leash or collar order! 

These are the automatic BLD standards: 

  • All of our leashes come standard with premium quality swivel bolt snaps in either solid brass or stainless steel metal
  • TAN leather items are made standard with brass (gold color) hardware
  • BLACK leather items and all colors of Brahma material are made standard with Stainless/Nickel (silver color) hardware

Use this listing to specify a different hardware choice such as changing to the “other” color hardware, or select a special type of leash snap.

  • First, select the item you wish to change (collar, harness, leash)
  • Next, write in the product it applies to
  • “Change hardware color”  (applies to ALL hardware on the item!)
    • for example, BLACK with BRASS, or TAN with SILVER color.
  • To change leash snaps, select “leash-make with different hardware” (this will also will automatically make the color of the hardware match)
    • Continue to select if you want the dog end, handle end, or both changed
    • Finally select the hardware part number; prices vary depending upon selection

The photos show all the hardware we have available.The standard options are indicated for your reference. Each photo heading specifies the width of the leash that selection of hardware will fit. Be sure the hardware you select fits the width size of the leash you are ordering!

These are options to add-on to your new leash or collar order.  Allow 5-7 business days for your custom item to be completed.

Changing to a different kind of snap:

  • Bolt snaps are our standard hardware, as these are the most reliable and durable hardware we’ve found. However, we have lots of hardware options available to meet your needs.
  • Scissor / Trigger snaps or spring gate snaps available if you don’t care for the bolt snaps. Many people find these easier to operate. However, in our experience, these are the least reliable hardware choices and are not recommended if you are looking for a super secure snap. Consider using a Safety Cord as a backup attachment. (see Leather Safety Cord, or woven Safety Cord
  • Shackle Snap: BLD’s exclusive tactical style, super secure, the quick release panic snap is designed to be the safest swivel snap option for working K-9s and dog sports, it releases in an instant by pulling the tab.

Notes about changing hardware: 

  • The option you choose will change both the color and style of the hardware–we’ll make all hardware on your leash match the color of the snap you choose! We won’t double-charge you to change the style and color.
  • Note: the size refers to the LEATHER WIDTH that the hardware will fit on (determined by the width leash you choose).
  • Remember that all of our hardware is the best quality available and is rust free (solid brass, chrome plated solid brass, or stainless steel, depending on the individual piece of hardware).
  • We cannot guarantee performance of Scissor/Trigger snaps, but are happy to build your leash with whatever hardware works for you.
  • Please allow extra time for your order to be made to your specifications.
