Dog tag clips

I as wondering if anyone knew of any good clips or something like that that make switching tags from collar to collar easier. I tried using a "C" clamp and it apparently unscrewed itself and so I lost her ID tag, rabies tag, and microchip tag. I recently got a dog park tag and while trying to put it on her collar I managed to stab myself with a screw driver and break one of my nails (really far down, it hurt like a son of a gun) just trying to get the tag onto her collar. I am obviously going to be getting her a new ID tag and rabies tag and would love to know if there is a handy, trustworthy, clip so that I can switch it from collar to collar easily because I use different collars for different things (for example, flat collar for dog park, martingdale collar for causal walk{because someone likes to try and slip her collar}) and it's a pain in the rear right now to switch them.

We use swivel snaps here--

Walmart has keyrings pretty cheap and you can just buy one and take this part off it

Thanks! I actually think I have a few of those snaps lying around somewhere from a project I was going to use them for but didn't. I'll have to give a try; I would have never thought of that.

I have a Rubit dog tag clip, it's pretty nice but the one thing I don't like is it makes the tags hang down rather far from the dog's collar.

I use one of these for Bianca, it's easy to switch collars and it keeps the tags from dangling, making noise or rubbing the text off:

I attached one tag to the outside of the bag too just so it's more visible.

Warning - there is a product out there called Tag-Nabit (or something close to that) - anyway - it SEEMED like a really good idea. I bought a couple of them and lost all of the dog tags for both dogs. Really cheesed me off since two of the tags lost were brand new, expensive, custom ID tags.

Yours in GSDs and rescue,

Makes it easy to swap them out
We use them for our rescue ID tags so when a dog leaves, we swap it onto the next resident's collar!

I used the rubits and did not like them. The tags hung really low on Nyxie so she was able to easily reach them and chewed them up. Then she broke the rubit. Going back to the good old S hook.

My dogs tags don't hang very low at all with the Rubit, nor have I ever had one break! I think with everything it is personal preference!
