Taking care of your nylon leash

Taking care of your nylon leash

The OPC leash system keeps your pet safe during walks or outdoor activities. Nylon leashes are popular for dog owners due to their durability, strength, and affordability. That’s why we chose nylon for our base material. However, like all pet products, nylon leashes require proper care to keep them in good condition and ensure your furry friend's safety.

Here are some tips on how to take care of the OPC leash system:

Regular Cleaning

Cleaning your nylon leash regularly is important to prevent dirt, bacteria, and odor buildup. You can wash it with mild soap and warm water, then rinse thoroughly and let it air dry. Please avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, which can damage the nylon material.

Avoid Exposure to Heat and Sunlight

Even though nylon leashes are durable, they might still weaken when exposed to extreme heat or sunlight. To prevent this, avoid leaving the OPC leash system in a hot car or in direct sunlight for extended periods. Instead, store it in a cool, dry place when not in use.

Do Regular Inspections

Check the stitching, the buckle, the clasp, and the leash itself for any damages. If you notice any damages during your inspection, please replace the leash immediately to prevent it from breaking because it might potentially put your pet in danger.

Store Properly When Not in Use

Store your nylon leash properly by hanging it on a hook or storing it in a drawer. Avoid leaving it on the floor or letting it get tangled with other items as this can cause damage. Many animals love to chew and may view their leash as a toy. However, chewing on the leash can cause damage to the material and weaken its strength. To prevent this, you can just avoid leaving them on the floor or anywhere your pet can reach. Also, you can encourage your pet to chew on appropriate toys and provide lots of playtimes to reduce the likelihood of them turning to their leash.

With our tips, you can properly take care of the OPC leash system to ensure its durability, strength, and longevity.
