Q:  Is the Leash serviceable?

  A:  The Leash Cartridge external housing was engineered with slots to accommodate fresh water rinsing. The Leash Cartridge external housing also has one (1) lubrication port which allows for periodic lubrication of the spring with a corrosion preventive.  Because our springs are loaded, we ask that customers not open the cartridge or attempt to repair the leash themselves.  Instead, contact us and we will guide you through the return and repair process and get you back to using your leash as soon as possible.

Q:  What is the best method of mounting the Leash Cartridge?

  A:  The Leash Cartridge can be mounted wherever desired providing there is no restriction to the leashes ability to extend and retract. Mounting the Leash Cartridge under the gunnel will provide protection from the harsh environmental elements. The closer the Leash Cartridge is mounted to the Gunnel Receiver will provide the angler the most range of motion.

We recommend that you consult with a Marine Mechanic / Carpenter to avoid damage to your vessel.

Q:  Does BGL have a cam lock like a dog leash?

  A:  No. The BGL is safest and most effective when it is always as short (and out of the way) as possible. Each leash has approx. 2 lbs of tension. Just enough to take up the slack but not hinder angler movement.
