How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Cut a strip of reflective fabric two inches longer than the leash or collar. Be sure to include the hand loop of the leash. For the leash, cut a second strip long enough to cover the reverse side. Using a utility knife on a self-healing mat, trim the fabric tape lengthwise 1/4" narrower than the width of the leash or collar.

Step 2

Apply a thin, even layer of glue to one side of the leash, including loop, or outer side of collar. Starting at one end, apply the reflective tape to the glued service, smoothing out as you go and being careful to keep the tape centered on the surface. Trim excess tape to fit. For collars, thread the thin, flexible tape through buckles or loops to cover entire surface of the collar.
