With a length of up to 8 metres, it allows your pet to explore and run about freely while still keeping him or her tethered to you. To keep your pet on a fixed short leash, all you have to do is click the button in place. The lightweight plastic handle is easy to carry and conceals the retractable mechanism. A soft grip handle makes it convenient to hold as well. A chromed snap hook makes it collar to leash attachment simple.
