Is there a safer, quicker release lead clasp?

Hi, I run with my dog and trying to unclasp the lead from the collar quickly with current clasps is just about the most annoying thing in my day - AND I HAVE CHILDREN.
Hooking onto the dog collar is not too bad, but could be easier and sometimes the clasps just...open??? And debris gets into the spring mechanisms n stops them working completely!!!
Is there a more modern, safer, Quick release clasp out there or do people just buy what they know, therefore companies make what they buy?

You shouldn't run with them on a collar, use a harness. Yes there are alternatives to spring clips but doubt they are any quicker to release, they may well be more reliable though.

Have a look on ebay for quick release coursing leads.

I really don't understand your need for speed to release the lead.. Ours clips on or off in just a second or so. It helps that he knows the score.
