Beacon Light
When my 4 year old Chocolate lab came into my life this past August, she would run outside on the 5 Acres and I couldn't see her nor could I keep up with her with my flashlight. This Beacon light has been a life saver for me, I also thought it was hard to turn it on and off as well. So when my friend came for a visit and she said when you need to turn it off, just twist the top and it turns off. So that's my advice, I use the collar clip to help me turn it on then I place it on my dog.

Liked the old style better
These little buttons are frustrating, especially when your fingers are numb from the cold. The old style; twist to turn on or off were much easier to use. The only problem was the soft rubber holder which broke too easily. Maybe a hard plastic holder for the old style lights?

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: We're sorry you're having trouble with the button. It is difficult to push when first getting used to it for sure, but this is by design. We want to be sure that the dog cannot switch modes or turn it off in the field. The "trick" to it is that there is a plastic overhang on top of the silver button to protect it. Make sure you are pressing the button from under that and it will push just fine. It takes three full seconds to change modes and ten full seconds to turn it off.

This is for your engineers, have given you a five star in "farm tested" above
Lots of pros and lots of use as noted in my previous rating but 1) If you use the snap link and cloth strap (because the lights do not fit on a standard nylon dog collar), the cloth that the used is a sandbur magnet. I regrettably forget this almost every time I reach down to either turn the lights on or off or remove them from he dog. 2)The "O" ring that seals the light is also a source for a future leak. Opening and closing the light to remove and insert batteries, or possibly just because of time, his ring expands just a bit. When it does, it is prone to get "pinched" between the light and the base causing a small loop of the ring to "ride out". Even though the light has been twisted into place, this now flawed seal will allow the lite to fill with moisture - and kill it. (This is not uncommon to "o" ring seals and for a penny or two - you could provide one or two extra, or just provide a bit of a better seat/groove to hold it in place). 3) The strap on two of my lights have broken off the base. Have resorted to just hanging the light directly on the dog tag ring, but this is sort of rinky dink solution. May be worth looking at.
