Question about Pets - Others
It could be that the leash became twisted when it retracted or that the spring that is used to retract it has broken, first of all pull out the lead all the way and try to slowly feed it back into the unit ensuring that it stays flat. If you have trouble feeding it back in to the unit it could be the spring - this shouldn't be too hard to replace by opening the unit. Undo the Allen screws on side of retractable leash. Carefully use standard screwdriver to gently pry the top from the bottom. Try to pry evenly on each side to avoid breaking the plastic casing. Visually inspect parts for signs of damage such as burns, cuts, rubs, tangles, frayed or worn sections. Check all sewn areas for loose, missing or damaged stitches. Replace leash material if necessary.
