    I use the quick links and use glue to keep them from backing back down.

    i also check all hardwear every day twice a day through sleet or shine hail or wind im in them circles checking all connections and link wear....

    you should never have a problem if u check daily....period...make it a habit to check mourning and evening.......
  5. give it a tack weld after tightening! Marty is speaking out of experience he didn't say it was crappy because he don't like the look of them quick-links! it is for educational purposes only he had accident once cause of one and that was enough for him to switch, but your dogs are you responsibility, Be responsible whatever way you do it!! Good post !

    I am going to go to the store this weekend to get the materials I need for this chain setup.

    What is the exact materials that I need? EVery single peice of equipment.
    And do i need a special collar for this, so that my dog wont find a way out of his collar. I have a stillwater show collar.

    and how do i know if its to tight.

    i heard someone say the 2 inch rule. but. i can put it as tight as i can. but still be able to put my 2 finger in but it will take 10 seconds. to do. but i still can fit 2 fingers in it.......

    is the rule that u need 2 fingers to fit in within 5 seconds? and not taking ur time to get it through.

    i feel bad for rex. i leave sometimes at 8 AM and will return at 6 PM. and he is locked up in his crate. i think its time he gets a real chainsetup..

    ok thanks alot. Oh, and does it matter the size of the axel?

    Are there special axels that are like 2 ft into the ground, and some are 3 ft into the ground and some are 4 ft into the ground and so on..

    or are axel's usually the same size.

    ( im new to this type of hardware...)

    Just a rear car/truck axle will do , don't make it complicated because it's not ;)

    Ask around at some car repair shops and see what they say. I couldn't find one either, then I asked a mechanic and found out it was like 5 minutes from my house.

    dog trolley?

    Has anyone used a aerial dog trolley? My son will be home for a few months bringing his pit Jenga. She is a love! We have a couple of acres and are not in a posistion to fence a large area for her. We have tried to be in the yard with her and let her run but she takes off to the neighbors and won't listen. We would not use it to leave her outside but to get out for a bit of excersize with supervision and go potty. It would give her more freedom than going potty while leashed. We are looking at a 100 ft trolley. She is about 35-40 lbs, not very big but I imagine still has a lot of strenght, I know she pulls me around on a leash. My son has started obedience classes with her but she is still learning!:)

    cable set up

    they are great i have a few.if i were you i would invest in a steel pulley that runs along the cable because the plastic ones look flimsy.and put a garage door spring on one end as a shock absorber the ones they come with are flimsy also.she should love this.
