The foundation of the Operator 1 1/2″ Rigid Collar is mil-spec Heavy Scuba Webbing. Atop this first layer, we have sewn 1 1/2″ mil-spec Webbing rated at 1,000 lbs as well as 1″ mil-spec webbing rated at 4,000 lbs to stiffen the design and add the additional strength and support required by our most demanding customers. We took our 2″ wide rigid collar and reduced the width to 1 1/2″ for those who have limited amounts of real estate on their dogs necks due to the addition of E Collars, Pinch Collars, Slip Collars and other devices. This rigid design allows the handler to use the body of the collar to apply pressure to the points behind the ears to manually “out” their dog from a bite if he becomes unresponsive to your commands.
We use a 1″ ISC Klick-Lock buckle rated to 2,600 lbs in our otherwise 1 1/2″ wide design to provide an added measure of security preventing accidental un-clipping when the collar is grabbed at the buckle, yet still allows the collar to be quickly un-clipped in an emergency. A large Velcro panel gives you plenty of space to affix identifier patches or accessories. 3 available clip in point options fit any commercial lead attachment, including large diameter climbing carabiners:
1″ Steel V-Ring: low profile option rated to 4,000 lbs.
1.5″ Anodized Aluminum V-Ring: constructed of 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum and provides the largest clip in option.
Soft Clip In: Inspired by clip in points found on climbing harnesses, it offers a silent solution that works with all existing clip in options.
