PostSubject: Noiseless Dog Tags ... and more   Mon Dec 18, 2017 1:47 pm

A while back someone mentioned a dog tag holder that, in my memory of it, was a clip on that supported the dog tags with a screw through the carrier.  (( How's that for the worlds worst description?? ))

I recently had all three dogs given their rabies shot and have three tags that I now have to remove (the old rabies tag) and new ones to put on.  I guarantee I'll either break 10 fingernails or dull my knife (if I don't cut myself) trying to replace these tags.

What I remember is similar to the Rubit Clip but, if memory serves, the one I'm looking for is much more secure since the tags are held with a screw.

Does anyone know what this old man is thinking about???  Help?!?!?!?

ETA: I think this (freezeTag) might be what I was looking for. I've ordered one and will follow up here when I get it. (( Ordered 1 since the other two I wanted - color coded dogs - are out of stock ))

Hmm....I never run my rabies tags so don't ever worry about swapping them out. Mine just have the boomerang tags with their info and that is quiet. Are you looking for just a silencer or something to actually get rid of the ring that is hard to get on and off?

Basic tag silencers are very basic --> Tag Silencer

This is a quick clip similar to the rubit clip --> Tag Spinner

This one has a screw as well --> Tagabiner

Peeking in to thank you for this. I just figured out why Grant's white throat fur is getting dark marks and it's because of his tag (!) so now we have a solution. Yay!

Jenn, I hate you!!! Normally I can find what I'm looking for pretty easily but obviously my choice of search terms and yours were quite a bit different.

To answer your question - and make a comment or two - what I was looking for is something that tones down the tinkle-tinkle as they move around and something that makes it a little easier to get tags off and on.

Recapping your finds:

Tag Silencer - I've seen these and considered them but that still leaves me with the problem of getting them off and on.

Tag spinner - no on two counts. One they aren't a silencer at all and I'd still have to put the ring on the tag (now if their lower appendage were smaller, similar to the biner) so the tag slipped on it, it might be a different matter)

Tagbiner - I like the idea since it seems more secure than the FreezeTag that I'm looking at. The clatter from the tags isn't *really* a problem. What I'm looking for is something that is secure *and* makes it easy to add / change tags - the silencing is an additional nicety (if I don't like the FreezeTag, I'll probably look back and try one of these.)

I've looked at the boomerang tags - I'd still have to have something else since, because of the purported prevalence of rabies carriers (not true, in fact) our dogs are supposed to have their rabies tag on them anytime they're out of the house.

But, even though I'm being curmudgeonly, thank you ma'am.

Both dogs have grey discoloration under their about from their new, enameled one size red dingo ss tags. But I like the tinkle tinkle cause it let's me and the cat know where they are.

Well, Amy, I feel better knowing I'm not alone in this! Now Chewy is serving me up several options as ads everywhere I go, haha, but I'm getting the Night Ize S-Biner because it's stainless steel. No more dread with new rabies tags! <ad mode off>

@Mersea Lopez Let me know what you think of the S-Biner and I'll comment on the FreezeTag when it gets here.  It's coming from Austin so it should be here in a day or two.

I really like the S-Biner from Nite Ize and the light for nighttime on the porch. Here he is "lit" after a walk outside in the dark--I left his collar on to snap a photo.

My bonsai pliers could barely remove the rabies tag jump ring, but good ridddance! I saw the light fob at Petsmart, but got the two items from Amazon.com.

The timing on this is about right.  I *did* go with the FreezeTag and they look like:


After a year of (ab)use on the three dogs, there is no discernable wear on the retainer. Ther flap that hold the tag on the collar also hold the nut so that it doesn't move. Pretty solid investment ...

I just had to replace my annual tags for the dogs and other than some marking on Avalanches HomeAgain tag they look great and make no noise at all.  Replacement on the three dogs took all of 10 minutes. ( less the time I had getting the dogs to cooperate of course! )

Interesting thread...I am somebody whose dog's tags are currently held on with a paper clip through the ring of his martingale collar!

I didn't even know there were all these nifty tag holders...
