Never heard of a bolt snap...is it a bull snap?


You need to pull the bottom part out in order to snap and unsnap it. They can be a pain (especially in the winter), but they are tougher than the regular spring snaps you usually see on lead ropes.

Or maybe its this?


I believe to open this type of snap, you have to twist the metal "sleeve" to open and close it.

I hope I was of some help!

The second one but it doesn't have the metal sleeve. If you go on ebay or even look up block snap it should come up in a pic from ebay. I would get a pic linked here but I don't know how. Thanks

Typical, I figure it out after I leave the farm. Dah! There's some pin on the side of the clip you pull out and it releases the snap. Its kind of a ******ed snap! Says its a quick release. Oh ya, took me two hours to figure out. Piece of crap!

I think this might be what you are talking about.


I can't help with how to use it though LOL. I have no clue.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Is it the one you tug the pin with? If that makes sense.
