Drop Offs

To retrieve a collar without having to recapture the animal we can integrate Drop Off mechanisms to collars. We offer Timer controlled Drop Offs which release the collar on a specific date and time or after a specific number of days. Additionally we offer radio controlled Drop Offs which release the collar remotely. Cotton layers can also be added to the collar, they wear off over time by weather and animal behavior.
