An exclusive design for the owner to get the uncompromised feeling of luxury and perfection.
SLEEK & FOCUSED DESIGN
The ambitious target behind the design of the Swedish Collar is for the owner to get the true feeling of luxury and exclusivity. The lavish, exclusive design is made to beautifully fit the vulnerable neck and brings out the very best from the inside and outside of the people close to it.
The curvature on the outside is designed to get this exclusive feeling of luxury. Also, the locking plate forms to the same curvature and matches the ring parts beautifully.
The collar is made of one piece of material, either surgical stainless steel, black aluminum, or solid bronze. High-precision machines are forming the collar using special tools all manufactured and designed in Sweden. The slight elliptic design will capsule the neck beautifully and will allow a tight fit, which will make the collar very comfortable for the bearer.
All parts built into any of the collars are corrosion-free. This means that the springs and screws used are stainless steel or similar corrosion-free material. In the case of stainless steel collar, the manufactured parts are made of so-called surgical steel, 316L. For the collar made in aluminum, the material used is also corrosion resistant and chosen to get a very beautiful black color when anodized. The collars made in solid bronze are made in so-called tin-bronze, which means 86% copper and 12% tin. The material has got a very little percentage of impurities from other materials. Tin-bronze is also a very corrosion-resistant material and is often seen used in marine environments. The bronze material can get a mature patina surface over time. The patina surface can be removed by polishing the collar to get the shiny surface back.
The clever locking mechanism will make the collar easy to go on and off. No tools are required, which can interrupt the built-up feeling of wearing the collar. The collar unlocks using a strong magnet, which quickly unlocks the collar. The locking plate in front is spring-loaded and slides down when the magnet and a light push upwards is applied.
The locking mechanism is made with a spring-loaded wedge, which is released by a strong magnet activating the wedge to a release position. There is only one moving part behind the locking plate. Compared to a padlock where there are about seven springs and about sixteen moving parts, the locking mechanism for the collar appears to be more reliable than a padlock. However, as an engineer and a person with forty-nine years of life experience, nothing is 100% even though it is very close to 100%. Locking the collar around a neck is always a risk of getting it off, but a very small risk. It is very important not to modify the locking mechanism and should the collar be damaged, please check the collar thoroughly before using it.
In case the collar should jam locked around the neck we will solve it together. Send an email to us and we will guide you to be safe. It is always at the customer’s own risk to lock the collar around a neck and SwedishCollar will always help in the best possible way in case of such an emergency.
