The Kenzo Connector was created because it was the ultimate off-leash experience for a dog without really having to be "off-leash". This piece is perfect for a family of two or more dogs. The connector features two auto-locking swivel carabiners that are super light-weight, made of aviation aluminum, and most of all safe because of its auto-locking feature. The connector can also be an accessory piece that you use on your waist to connect the leash and make it "hands-free" for your hikes and runs. Remember this connector is only 3 FT. so it won't work for everyone, but you can always e-mail us to see if we can do a custom size for you. This piece is also the perfect connector to put around a bar stool, table, and chair for when you're out and you want your dog to have that extra length. The connector is best used on hiking trails and other outdoors adventures!
