An innovative yet simple product to increase safety and reduce rug repair bills has been introduced by FMBs Therapy Systems.

Safe-Gum is a rubber rug clip attachment that can be fixed onto chest, surcingle and fillet or leg strap rug clips.

The rubber attachment is designed to break if a horse gets tangled up when rolling or caught on something in the stable or field, avoiding damage to rug straps and clips.

Safe-Gum is supplied in packs of eight, including shapes to suit T-bar fasteners and hook or spring clip closures.

FMBs say there is nothing similar to their product on the equine market.

Safe-Gum will be distributed in the UK and Ireland through equestrian retailers and rug manufacturers. RRP £9.50 including VAT.
