This leash has a 'claw' style clasp. Once I put it on with the matching collar to try it out, I couldn't initially get a good enough grip to unclasp it. I ended up removing the collar instead. I just couldn't get enough purchasae on the thumb lever to pull it back far enough to get a release. Unfortunately, I sent both the leash and collar back since I was looking for a matched set to replace another set I purchased at STP over a year ago.

If you are older and have smaller hands, be warned that the clasp is VERY difficult to open and close. It swivels, making it even harder, and has jaws like an alligator with an overbite, which must be forced apart using your thumb on a lever. It's hard to do, and if I had tried this in a store, I never would have bought it. Hopefully it will loosen with use. The leash itself seems strong, though it is not wide, and the "chocolate" on the pink version is a mere pinstripe—again nothing I would have bought had I seen it in a store. Good for smaller dogs with strong-thumbed owners!

I really like how sturdy and bright the leash is. Very visible at night, which is great because we have a black/brown dog. The only minor con (from my girlfriend) is that the leash is a little bit tough on her hands. But I like the sturdiness, and think that the leash roughness will go away after it gets broken in.
