RE: Re: RE: RE: Velcro stronger than Steel??

The Spring Tie company has just come out with a very strong and well engineered Spring Tie unit that swings out from the trailer and doesn't require any lifting.  The improvements they have made to the system along with the 90 day money back guarantee make the purchase of the new Spring Tie unit an easy decision.

Yeah, but lifting something like that over my head is a lot harder than just swinging something over!  That would have been my tie of choice if they were still in business, too.  I think Sky Hook is looking pretty good right now, but anybody else has something to say?

I'll be really sorry if Trail-or Tie is out of business.  I own 4 and have been generally pleased.  I tend to think simple is the best way to go and their ties are simple.  Kathy, even with Trailor-ties you do have to climb up, unpeg and move the tie against the trailer each time.  I haven't seen a horse containment system that doesn't have its problems and trailer ties aren't magic, but they are better than most and a heck of a lot easier.  Maybe someone will buy the manufacturing rights and bring them back.

I had the same questions myself.  I saw the Spring Tie at the Convention, and the only thing that I really didn’t like is that you have to take it down every time, and I’m too short to want to do that all the time.  I belive the Skyhook Tether stays attached and you just swing it back to the trailer.  I heard also the Trail-Lor ties was out of business.  Someone want to enlighten me more?

      At a NATRC ride this weekend someone told me that the Trail-Lor tie was
      out of business. A weird coincidence because less than 12 hours later I
      found my self with a really bent steel tie and my horse with a rope burn
      on a rear pastern. I can only guess that she itched her ear with a hind
      leg and got her rear leg caught over the rope.  After the awards dinner
      I found her down, begging me to help her and her rear leg caught up. THE

      I would like to replace the bent rod but don't know if they are in
      business. I'm also seriously thinking of portable panels because my
      horse loves to lay down a lot. Or what about the Spring Tie?
