    Same here. Using it with two collars. No problems. Had nothing but problems with the separate lights you could buy for your TT collars. The lights in the 550 work great.

    I see a lot of people do this (put on prong collar by opening the collar). Easiest, no-fuss way is to flip over the collar so the prongs face outward, slip it on, flip over again. Voila!
