Trigger Snap is a more traditional locking karabiner. The main reason for choosing Trigger Snap is that the O-ring connectors of the other locks are easy to loosen. It is can easily cause the dog to break free of the owner’s control. Trigger Snap has an 8-shaped bolt, allowing the clip to move within the specified range and has a spring return. After a long period of use, the spring and trigger may be stuck. It is often caused by foreign matter or dog hair entering the gear, which it can generally use after cleaning.
Another common locking karabiner is Bolt Snap. Now, most of the pet dog leashes use this kind of tiny locking carabiner. This tiny locking carabiner is smaller than Trigger Snap. You press the switch vertically, and the lock will open. The spring will automatically close the lock when you let go. It is the easiest and most convenient way. But this means that the aging of the spring may cause the switch to loosen. If the locks frequently fall off when your dog is moving. Then it’s time for you to change to a new lock.
