Thread: Repairs to Tri Tronics Black Collars

  1. #1

    Default Repairs to Tri Tronics Black Collars

    I have broken the collar sleeve that holds the collar to the receiver on the dogs neck.
    I have broken three of them over the years.
    Tri Tronics charges in excess of $100 to replace the receiver.

    I thought I would pass on that Permatex has a product that repairs the black plastic.

    The product is Perma Oxy 5 minute Black Plastic weld.
    It bonds wonderfully. Sets in 5 minutes and dries black.
    It may take a little sandpaper to smooth out.

    Hope this saves folks time and money!

    I have had three such failures. TT never helped with them. I found electrical tape to be my friend. I don't think there is enough left of the Keepers on the broken one I have now to try the Permatex, but I sure will keep this info handy!!! I KNOW I will need it again. Thanks a lot!

    I have read about people having this issue, and tritronics refusing to repair at reasonable cost.
    i understand that the only choice for them is a new housing, but, if it happened to one of mine, I would think a trip to a electrical suppy house, and purchsse a couple or so of extra wide heavy duty cable ties.
    position the ties in place on the housing( you may have to file down where the old bridges were, and then use epoxy or the permatex stuff mentioned, and glue the cable tie in place.

    Once epoxy sets, place collar strap on location, and cinch up thecable ties, the bond the cincher in place with more epoxy.
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.
