Choices to securely attach Rabies & Other Tags to your Pet's Collar

There are many choices to securely attach your Pet's Rabies & required Tags to their collar.

Currituck County only requires a Rabies Tag.
(1) Tag to attach

Dare County Does Require an Annual Dog License & Rabies Tag.
(2) Tags to attach (provides S hook for attachment)

The Town of Kill Devil Hills requires an Annual Dog License
in addition to Dare County Annual Dog License & Rabies Tag.
(3) Tags to attach (provides attachment ring)

There are three pictured options to attach tags to your pet's collar pictured.

The first ring attachment is a secure way to attach tags to your pet's collar securely, but there is a lot of twisting if you ever need to put your pet's tag on another collar. 

The second S ring option is a very secure way to attach tags to your pet's collar but will require pliers and hand strength to attach. In addition, once secured, this attachment is the hardest to un-attach and re-attach if needed.

The third pictured option is an "S-BINDER" MICROLOCK by NITE IZE.
This option, much like the Ring & S Ring, is very secure. However, the S-BINDER does have an advantage due to its construction.

Shaped like the classic S Ring, closures on each side of the S are locked and unlocked in place with a simple twist of the center lock. In addition, the S-BINDER locks dog tags securely in place and transfers quickly with a simple twist. The S-BINDER MICROLOCK easily held three tags, and the tags slid right on; nothing additional was required.

Some dogs will wear out a collar before the end of a year and need a new one. Other dogs have many collars & participate in Pet Events, like "Outer Banks Pet Events." needing collars to be exchanged for dress-up events.
