At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Replacement Leather Safety Release is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for repairing halters. Keep 'em handy! I only use breakaway halters for turnout, and like the ones with "fuses" best. These repair parts are a Must Have in my barn!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lifesaver For Filly Hard on Halters! My filly is really hard on halters and I think I have gone through more with her these last few months than with all my previous horses combined! This replacement leather safety release was really easy to use and holds up great. My one criticism is that it is just a fraction short, so it is a bit of finger gymnastics getting it set up on the halter to begin with.
    Date published: 2016-08-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Proof is in the pudding Not sure yet. The original piece did its job, I suppose, and broke promptly when 5 year old toddler horse was inadvertently turned out with it on. Replacement seems very flimsy. So far it has been fine with no more turnouts. We shall see.
    Date published: 2016-07-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Repair Piece I have a raggedy halter that is easy for the barn staff to take on and off. Unfortunately after several years of hanging outside, the original leather piece dry rotted. So glad I could get replacements. This leather is sturdy and should last just as long. Easy to put on even though the leather was new.
    Date published: 2016-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective safety device I like this type of breakaway halter "fuse" better than the crown piece type. If they break you can generally just punch another hole and reuse them! You can also use them to make a halter that is not quite long enough a little little longer by replacing original buckle straps with these.
    Date published: 2016-06-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and nice! I bough this to fix a break away halter I have. My only complaint is its a little too short for my taste, but it's much nicer quality than the piece that broke!
    Date published: 2016-06-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to have on hand. This replacement piece for breakaway halters worked perfectly. I bought a second one to have on hand in case my horse decides to bust his halter again.
    Date published: 2016-06-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome & just want I needed! The breakaway broke on Levi's halter and instead of needing to buy a new halter, I just needed to replace the breakaway piece. Though it was a little shorter than the one it was replacing, it worked just fine and has held up perfect! I bought an extra to have a round as back up and one to cut a halter I love to turn it into a breakaway, so we can start using it on him. As always, SmartPak's shipping was super quick and the item was perfect!
    Date published: 2016-05-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and simple I bought this a few weeks ago and it's held up really nicely. My horse seem to break safety release straps like string. However, these seem very sturdy and he hasn't broken it yet. Plus, you can make any halter a break-away halter with these. I will only be buying them from Smartpak from now on.
    Date published: 2016-03-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick and sturdy,well nade It is excellently made but the reason I gave it four stars versus five is it is slightly difficult to replace. Otherwise, it's wonderful.
    Date published: 2016-02-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement piece Bought 2 of these replacement straps. One to replace a broken one and the other to convert my new hybrid halter to a breakaway. Great quality
    Date published: 2016-01-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short, but good function Good safety function. I bought it to fit Kensington full size break-away halter for my Hanoverian mare. It makes the halter too short. (Nose band sits too high up). I loosened poll strap to last hole in able to use it.
    Date published: 2015-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the ONLY way to do Turnout halters I use these "fuses" to convert all my nylon halters to break-aways. The leather is not too strong, not too weak, the screws stay put.
    Date published: 2015-05-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! My non-horsey fiance was able to fix up my halter in a couple minutes with this strap. Works great! The original leather on the halter only lasted a couple weeks. So far so good with this one.
    Date published: 2015-04-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety! I love that I can easily repair his halter rather than replacing it or having to call the Vet!
    Date published: 2015-02-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great piece of leather purchased to change a nylon halter to a breakaway halter.. wanted a different halter than the typical "breakaway" because wanted a nylon halter with more adjustablity, but halter I choose didnt have a breakaway option so purchased this and cut away the nylon piece that holds the buckle and used this.
    Date published: 2014-11-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement Have bought a few different ones and this one seems to last the longest. Even sturdier than the original one in the halter
    Date published: 2014-11-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity! I bought this fuse to make a regular halter into a break away. The fuse is a little shorter than others that came pre-installed on my store-bought break-aways but this isn't a concern since the halter is for a horse with a petite head. Good quality, chicago screw seems to be tight and unlikely to unscrew itself. Nice, cheap way to "baby-proof" a halter!
    Date published: 2013-08-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit A very inexpensive way to salvage a breakaway halter. Perfect fit and it includes the Chicago screw.
    Date published: 2013-06-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job I have gone thru several of these with my horses, they have always worked and broken under panicking horse pressure.
    Date published: 2013-03-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value After my horse actually did break his break-away halter, I had a hard time finding a replacement piece. This one is a perfect fit, inexpensive and easy to attach to the halter. I bought several to always have one on hand now!
    Date published: 2012-10-24
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok The screw that holds it together comes loose and needs to be checked frequently

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to hook I use these replacement releases for my Red Haute Horse halters. They work great and are easy to affix to the halter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make any halter a safety halter I love these leather straps! For around $3.00 I can make any halter into a safety halter and if the strap gets broken they are very inexpensive to replace!
    Date published: 2012-05-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety Release It took me a minute to figure out how to attach to the halter. I'm not sure what else I could say about this other than it serves its purpose :)
    Date published: 2012-04-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy!! I am so happy with this. Saved me money as I didn't have to buy a new halter. It was easy to put it on as well.
    Date published: 2012-04-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from genius this is awesome, no only great for fixing broken ones but also great for converting all nylon halters to break-away. Brilliant!
    Date published: 2012-03-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Peace Of Mind! I adopted a rescue mare who came with a gorgeous lime green halter. It worried me that the halter was not a breakaway style, so I bought several of these safety releases so I could use ALL the halters in my tack room. I had stopped using all non breakaways about a year ago. It's much more cost effective to be able to use all the halters I have, and KNOW my horses are safe when turned out wearing them. This is a GREAT product!
    Date published: 2012-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What Could Be Smarter What could be smarter, or less expensive when you care about safely turning your horse out and standing him on cross ties? I wouldn't have a halter without a breakaway strap. These never clash with halter colors as they tuck out of sight under the side buckle. And I can usually punch another hole for two uses.
