The light works great but like other leashes similar to this one, the product can cause all kinds of frustration. I've tried other leads that have a rope-like configuration (instead of a flat lead) and the trouble has always been that they "lock up" regularly once you use the braking mechanism. This happened to me on just the second time out with the dog and it took almost 30 minutes to get the brake to release. My fault - I should have checked out this product more thoroughly before buying.
This item arrived busted so not sure if that has anything to do with its performance but I expected something a little more rigid. I bought something similar at a local merchant for $8 that feels sturdier and performs much better than this item. The lead tends to get stuck without locking it or pressing the button LED is far from bright. Overall I would not buy this item again. I would expect this poor quality from a dollar store item.
LEASH IS FAIRLY COMPACT, LED LIGHT IS A GOOD IDEA BUT COULD BE A LOT BRIGHTER, OK FOR ON COMING TRAFFIC TO SEE A LIGHT BUT COULD BE A LOT BRIGHTER LIKE SOME OF THE LED FLASHLIGHTS ON THE MARKET.
