Tangle-free design means dogs can roam freely. Can hold dogs between 50 and 200 pounds, even those prone to pulling. Vinyl coating is soft and won't hurt dogs, and it helps keep the tie-out rust-free. Definitely designed to last for years.
Some reports of faulty clasps.
Available in six lengths and a variety of reflective colors. Quality construction with a steel cable and well-made swivel clips. Cable is coated with crimp-free vinyl. Lightweight for small dogs – one of few designs with this benefit.
Occasional reports of dogs chewing through the protective cable coating.
Cable is coated in crack-resistant PVC. Galvanized steel cable is well-made, as it performs well under rigorous twisting and tangling. Earns bonus points for not tangling around a dog's legs or torso, even on dogs who jump a lot.
Quality is fairly solid, but there are one-off reports of mid-size and large dogs pulling to the point where the clasps break.
Designed to work with virtually any stake, or it can clip onto itself if you loop it around a tree. The maximum recommended weight is 100 pounds, so it covers dogs from puppies through larger mid-size breeds. Bright green cable contrasts grass for maximum visibility.
Only available in three lengths, so it might not be ideal for all yard sizes or bigger breeds.
Holds dogs up to 50 pounds. Design accommodates smaller breeds. Cable and swivel hooks have remarkably high tensile strength compared to other tie-back cables geared toward smaller dogs. Stake is well-designed and stays anchored.
Some reports that the stake isn't as durable as expected, as it can bend or warp with enough pulling.
