To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I had previously purchased this in July 1018 when it was listed as a Stainless Steel Pet Dog Tie Out Cable. It no longer states it is stainless steel. I cut mine shorter and so far the cut end has not rusted much, but it is stained a bit so if it is stainless it is as low grade. It has held up much better than the thinner one that cost more and rusted to the breaking point in a few month. The ends are heavily clipped together and it has a very heavy protective cover which has not cracked being outside over the winter months. The ends each have a heavy duty snap hook that could be very hard to use for some people, but I liked that they will definitely not come off the dog by accident. It has held up fine and my 16 pound White West Highland Terrier has no problems pulling it around. Overall I give this a 4 for the stainless steel designation it previously was listed as. Maybe they discovered it was not stainless and honesty is worth a 4 !
This is a good tie-out cable. The only issue I have is the snap hook is very difficult to open and get unhooked from the dog's collar. Would have liked a larger snap hook. This is why I only gave 4 stars.
