The Lixit Retractable Cable Dog Tie Out is an in-ground tie-out system that gives pets the freedom to roam. A steel stake keeps it securely planted in the ground, and the retractable cable attaches to the collar with a durable steel spring clip. The top rotates 360 degrees to give pups a large roaming area without getting all tangled up in the cable.
360-degree rotation avoids tangles and gives your dog the most freedom
Heavy-duty steel stake stays buried in the ground
Sturdy, steel-coated cable in steel housing stays firmly in place, retracts when not in use
Provides a large roaming area for your pup
Colorful stripe keeps top visible and prevents tripping
It is always best to use a harness with your tie out. Some dogs do not like the constant “tug” at the neck; a harness always provides more control and comfort for your dog.
The “T” is provided to enable you to drive the stake into the ground without striking the unit directly, use caution when striking, if you lose this piece you can use a piece of wood over the nut to hammer into the ground. Do not remove the acorn nut from the housing and strike the pole directly. Do not strike the housing directly.
After firmly pushing/hammering the stake into the ground, up to the white line just below the housing you may attach your dog. It is best to walk your dog out to the length of the tie out so he has an idea of how far they can go.
A Tie out is meant to be a temporary control for your pet and should not be used for extended periods of time. Always supervise your dog while tethered.
Do not release the cable tie out when fully or partially extended, this could cause the cable
I bought the first one and within 3 months it quit working. Chewy sent me a replacement ( because they’re awesome) and this one lasted 8 months (I’m late writing my review .) That’s better but way to expensive to only last between 3-8 months!
I wish they would improve this product bc its a great concept!

We've purchased this item before. I don't expect it to last forever, but with this one, the retractable part has already quit working most of the time (and it has been very dry out so not because it got wet inside). We purchased this is June so it is at most 2 months old. I expect to replace it every year or so but not every couple of months.
Rusted and broke within 2 months

Loved the idea of retractable but it has already rusted and broke within 2 months. Won't buy again.
Needs a different clip for small dogs
on Apr 18, 2021
I bought the size for small dogs. Worked for my 11 pound Yorkie, not not my 5 1/2 lb Yorkie. It was too hard for him to pull the cable out of the unit. Also, the clip used to attach to their collar was huge! Need a smaller design. We’ll use this for our larger dog as it’s portable and a great way to keep him untangled. I would recommend but not for a dog under 10 pounds.
Medium to larger dogs
on Apr 15, 2021
This is definitely a Great product but not for me. I got the medium because of the price, it was cheaper then the small, now I wasted money. I have 3 pomeranians weighting 7 to 10 lbs this is way to strong for them, it's sucks them back to device. It's definitely a great product just not for Small breeds

I was disappointed in this. I bought two, one for back and one for front yard. They do not become stationary so the dog is always being pulled by the neck. I will return the unopened one.
Better than what I was looking for.

All I can say is that it is worth the price. I just wish the line was a bit longer for small dogs. I would have loved a 25 inch instead of a 15 inch.
Dog cable tie out
on Apr 27, 2021
This is a heavy duty and well built. We wanted it for camping. We put it in the ground and attached it to Toby ( He’s 70lbs.). The dog ran once and it stopped him in he’s tracks. He’s fine with it and knows his boundaries.
Great idea, bad execution
on Mar 20, 2021
Bought 2 of the small. Clearly whoever designed this product only owned medium to large dogs and did not consult with small dog owners. This item is not suitable for dogs 20lb or under. The swivel hook is for a dog well over 30lbs and noway will my 8 pound doxi be able to pull out the cording.

We purchased this tie out to take our dog camping. We love it because we don't trip over it.
