BLD’s Leather Safety Cords are designed for use with head halters, prong collars, martingales, front clip harnesses, or any type of training tool as a fallback plan. Just in case. Why? Because sometimes you need peace of mind by having two points of attachment. Excellent option for Houdini dogs who somehow wriggle their way out of their gear or shake loose from the leash clip. Features the same premium quality leather used in all BLD gear!
Available in two styles (each style has two size options as well):
- Standard Leather Safety Cord is made with a bolt snap at each end of flexible braided leather. Available in two sizes:
- Small: Approx. 7.5 inches (20 cm) long, is made from 3/8″ width leather, and has small bolt snaps
- Medium: Approx. 9 inches (26 cm) long, is made from 1/2″ width leather, and has durable medium size bolt snaps
- NEW! Ultimate Safety Connection is made with our special Locking Carabiner Snap(s) that is secured with a screw-down lock sheath. This version is heavy duty and recommended only for large breed dogs. Made with a 3/4″ wide leather, connector is approximately 7.5″ long (20 cm), and is only available with brass/gold colored hardware. Available in two sizes:
- Ultimate Safety Cord with one Locking Carabiner and a large bolt snap on the other end
- Ultimate Safety Cord with two Locking Carabiners (one at each end)
Leather & Hardware Color Options:
Crafted with the same quality leather and hardware found on all of BLD’s products. Our standard leather and hardware color combinations are:
- Tan bridle leather comes standard with brass/gold colored hardware
- Black latigo leather comes standard with chromed brass or stainless steel/silver colored hardware
*If you would like a different leather/hardware color combination, select the option “Make with OTHER Color Hardware”. This is only available for the small & medium braided safety cords.
*Note: brass hardware can stain white/light coated dogs. Sometimes the oil in dogs’ coats can create tarnish, a harmless chemical reaction.
*Locking Carabiner snaps are only available in brass, therefore ALL Ultimate Safety Connections will be made with brass hardware.

How to use Locking Carabiner Snap:
- Spin the lock to open (clockwise) and release the gate
- Snap onto the dog’s collar or harness
- Spin the lock closed (counterclockwise) to secure the gate
- Always spin the lock completely closed when in use on the dog’s collar or leash to ensure the snap is locked
Caution! Do not use the snap in the “open” unlocked position. This snap must be fully locked closed when in use. Failure to spin the gate lock closed may cause the hook to bend out of alignment and fail. The lock sheath reinforces the hook part of the snap to make it secure. BLD’s leash warranty assumes proper use of this snap.
Our Golden TAN BRIDLE leather is 100% American vegetable-tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Every item crafted from this high quality leather is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your new gear arrives supple and only improves with age. The color will darken over time and with use.
Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather is solid black and cut from select USA hides. Superior in quality and texture, it is incredibly durable yet very flexible. This leather feels great from the start and will simply get better with age.
Leather care is easy! Don’t worry too much, and don’t be afraid to use your items — we promise leather is incredibly resilient, and regular weather won’t hurt it. If you think your item looks dirty, dry, or just need a little extra love, pouring a little leather conditioner on a cloth, and rubbing it in like lotion will usually do the trick. Baths and a jaunt in the river are just fine, but you might want to offer a little conditioner to your products afterwards. Saltwater can be harsh, so after a visit to the ocean, a good rinse in fresh water and proper conditioning will help preserve and protect your treasured leash or collar. See our Leather Care page for more specific information.
