Dah which way does it go?

Bought this nice 14ft lead on ebay and it has a bolt snap?? What the heck? How the blank do you open it? Has anyone heard of this type of snap??

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.

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