Manufactured by Fetters (21 of 24)

The Fetters line is manufacturer for and distributed by Mr. S Leather and Fetters. Originally manufactured in the UK, they are now made in the US. The originals had fully welded hinges and were made of a shiny hard steel. The newer ones are not welded at the hinges and are of a softer (easier on the skin too) powder coated iron. They are made from 1.5" wide 1/8" thick strap iron. The hinges are rolled from the straps rather than separate. The locks are typically an allen wrench bolt in one side which screws into a nut on the other side. The key is distinctively cross shaped with a short allen key as the long extension.

The Pre-18th century design is based on historical patterns from the UK and europe. Simple and chunky.

Fetters Slimline Collar

From Allen's collection

Type: Collar

This is a Fetters slimline collar. It is 1 1/2 inch tall and 1/8 inch thick. The construction is ligher than the old Fetters irons but of such high quality that it is actually stronger. A threaded bolt shaft is welded to the flat side of the lock. The other side carries a steel cylinder housing a nut with a hex drive at one end. To lock the collar, the nut is screwed down over the bolt using a hex key. The collar shown fits a 14 inch neck.
