Quick-Release Wheelchair Leash System:
Designed to make it easier for a wheelchair user to manage their dog’s leash! Includes a chair attachment and adjustable short leash, plus you can add a detachable handle (optional). The leash clicks on and off of your wheelchair with an easy to use quick-release buckle, so the leash can be used hands-free while attached to the chair, or used separately like a regular leash.
The QR Wheelchair Leash System has 3 parts:
1) The CHAIR ATTACHMENT mounts to the wheelchair. Easy to install on any part of the chair frame/tubing with sturdy Velcro wrap. Chair attachment includes a swivel to eliminate tangling. Attachment is approximately 5″ long)
- Quick-Release buckle is a metal side-release buckle that is easy to use.
- Shackle Snap option is a panic snap that releases by pulling the tab. Requires more dexterity to operate, but releases in an instant by pulling the tab.
2) The DETACHABLE LEASH is the right length to avoid getting tangled and caught on the wheels. The lead has a bolt snap on one end to attach to the dog’s collar. The other end of the leash is made to attach the style you choose. The lead length is adjustable for a perfect fit.
3) OPTIONAL separate leash HANDLE can be clipped onto the leash so it can be used when detached from the wheelchair. (Or you can use any regular leash.)
Choose Leash Length: .
- Length is overall range including the attachment! (attachment is approximately 5″)
- Short 20-25″
- Regular 24″-30″
Please MEASURE the leash LENGTH you need FROM THE CHAIR TO THE DOG. Determine where you want the leash to attach to your wheelchair, and measure the length from the chair to the dog’s collar (or harness). Be sure the leash is short enough to prevent the lead from becoming trapped in the wheel or motor, yet long just enough the dog can turn around and fit behind the chair to go through a doorway. Don’t worry; there is some adjustment in the leash length so you can get a perfect fit.
Leash Width: Choose medium 1/2″ width for a lighter lead, or the large 5/8″ width for a sturdy lead with large hardware.
Choose our lovely Black Latigo Leather with chrome hardware, or our beautiful natural Golden Tan Bridle Leather with solid brass hardware. *Swivel attachment is only available in silver color.
