You know what length you prefer, but generally it depends on the:
- Width of the grooming place
- Height of the connecting hole
- Your horse and your need of movement without stressful restrictions
- Height of the horses head
- Place in the headcollar where you would like to attach to
When the panic and flight instinct takes over – the Velcro® opens. And the horse is released. With just soft materials around and still something to hold on to.
It is possible to adjust the pressure to have the Easy Connect to open. It all depends on the specific need.
The smooth carabiner has soft edges to avoid bruising or harm to sensitive areas.

The guaranteed minimum breaking strength loading on the carabiner is 24 000 Newton on the major axis.
There is not a lot of sound coming from our Easy Connect when handling.
It is always nice to be able to be in a quieter working environment.
When dropping the carabiner against the wall, it creates a dampened sound in decibel that equals the sound from the radio.
The light carabiner is protected so the walls doesn’t get effected when it is dropped.

Due to its lightness it’s easy to swing and attach.
If you would like to release the horse from the attached place you can be at a safe distance and just grab the loop and easily open it.
The sound and the give from the Velcro® suppresses the horses need to escape (flight instinct).
Normal pressure release – 90 kg / 198 lb.
With under a kilo of strength in the fingers, the Velcro® can easily be open – just pull the safety tab to the side.
Its ability to close is reduced with 50 % after 10 000 openings.
The lengths varies in ten different lengths from 55 cm – 170 cm. So it should be easy to find the Easy Connect that fits your need.
The different lengths makes it possible to use in stable, lorry, trailer and why not using it in the stable at the competition arena?
It is possible to reduce the pressure to the point you want Easy Connect to open.
It all depends on the specific need.
For very sensitive horses, where you want it to be easily open, just place e.g. a piece of paper in between the Velcro® so it is not attached all the way.
