Make a quick release snap

HomeSite Map
Make a quick release snap (panic strap) for 2 to 4 dogs is rather easy.

Quick release snap

You need 1 panic snap with fixed ring, 18 cm (length) of 10 mm strap , a drill with a 4 mm metal drill bit drill, 1 4X25 mm bolt, 2 washers 4 X 10 (or 4 x12), 1 nylon bolt.
It is best to use stainless screws and bolts if the quick disconnect is intended for use in wet or snow conditions.

1 - Drill a hole through the original rivet in the outside housing collar, drill bit 4 mm.

Remove the the rivet

2 - Remove the the rivet however pay attention not to lose the spring located inside the housing collar  !

3 - Cut the 18cm strap and fold it over to create a handle then pierce a hole through the material, 1 cm from the end, using a heated awl (a heated nail will work also).

Webbing & hole

4 - Through this hole, insert the screw with associated washer.

5 - Reassemble the panic snap WITH the spring in its original location. Make sure to place the finger hook facing upwards.

Finger hook facing upwards

6 - Put the screw with attached strap assembly back thru the panic snap housing. You must compress the spring with a flathead screwdriver in order to pass the screw through to the other side.

Nylon bolt

7 - Finish by installing a washer and the nylon bolt. Tighten just enough to secure the bolt ionto the screw. Do not over tighten as the disconnect is made of alloy metals.
