Atomic Pet Lighted Dog Leash, retail $1.99 (

Last updated 12-08-13

The Atomic Pet Lighted Dog Leash is designed to be used like an ordinary dog leash to allow Amos or Duke or Princess or Lakota or whatever the {vulgar term for intercourse} your dog's name is to be seen at night - especially if the leash comes off in your hand and your dog runs off.

The version I'm testing for you today has thirty SMD LEDs (10 each red, white, and blue) that flash in a "chasing" sequence.

The unit feeds from two AAA cells, and the strap portion appears to be made of nylon - so it should be at least reasonably durable. The length from end to end is ~44.0 inches (~111.8cm).


The unit comes with batteries installed, so it's ready to use right out of the package.

Affix the end with the spring-loaded clasp to the metal loop in your dog's collar.

I don't have a puppy dog, so I hooked the "lobster claw" clasp to the hook on another product hanging from my dresser for this photograph.

On the side of the black plastic "bone" near the other end, there is a small red pushbutton with "ON/OFF" silkscreened near it.
Press and release this button once to turn the product on; press & release it again to turn it off.

There is a large nylon loop near the "bone"; you may place this around your wrist to help prevent your dog from escaping.

To change the batteries, use a small phillips screwdriver (the #0 with 2.0mm shaft diameter from my set of jeweller's screwdrivers worked here) to unscrew & remove the two screws at one end of the black "bone" thing. Set them aside.

Slide the lid off, and throw it in the lawn so Fido will fetch it and chew it up...O WAIT, YOU'LL NEED THAT!!! So just set it aside instead.

Remove and dispose of or recycle the two used AAA cells as you see fit.

Insert two new AAA cells in the chamber, orienting them so their flat-ends (-) negatives face the springs for them in each compartment.

Slide the door back on, and reinsert & tighten the screws. Tighten them firmly, but do not overtighten them - the threaded screw openings may become stripped if you do.
Aren't you glad you didn't throw that battery door in the lawn so Fido could chew it up now?

This leash is meant to be used as a lighted dog leash, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, and abused, so I won't try to drown it in the cistern (toilet tank), bash it against a steel rod or against the concrete floor of a patio, let my housemate's citty kats go to the litterbox on it, run over it with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, or perform other indecencies on it that a regular flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be significantly more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

The length of ~44" seems a bit on the short side, but this is just my opinion.

Since I do not have a puppy dog, I cannot use this product in the manner in which it was intended, nor can I assign a "star" rating to the product.

Photograph I attempted to take; the red and white LEDs were off when this exposure was made.

I cannot provide it in other formats, so please do not ask.

That music you might hear is from the computer video game Wolfenstein 3D from 1992.
The product is not sound-sensitive; you may ignore or mute the sound if desired.

Test unit was purchased on 02-18-07, and was received on the afternoon of 02-23-07.

Product was made in China. A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.
