Consider our Tug Toggles versus Tug Snaps...As an alternative to our standard tugline with a bronze snap, the Tug Line Toggle is best used with a shorter tug line fidded on to the Toggle, which then connects to, via the Toggle, a 18" Harness Extender Line, which has a 4" loop on one end to loop into the harness tug loop, and 2" loop on the other end to loop around the Toggle, with the Toggle connecting the Harness Extender Line and the Tug Line. See Tug Line Toggle, Tug & Harness Line Combo.
Each Toggle is hand-made, and is approximately 4" wide. Designed for use with 8mm polyethylene tight-weave rope. Toggle Benefits include:
- Won't jam with sand, dirt, mud or excrement
- Won't freeze
- Light weight
- Strong and reliable
- Will not splinter, rot or delaminate
- Will not absorb moisture
- All edges and corners rounded to minimize wear on tugs
- Textured matte surface
The following video link featuring Iditarod Veteran Karen Ramstead, who has successfully used this style of Toggle for years, shows how the Toggle is used.
We'll be happy to fid the Toggles for you on our standard 30" shortened Toggle Tug, or at any custom length you prefer (note in Comments Box), and in our wide selection of rope color choices; we also have our standard 18" Harness Tug Extender Line available. Just select "Yes, Convert from Tug SNAP to Tug Toggle" in the dropdowns below.
