Quality local Amish made leather night latch stands up and enables a more secure emergency grip for the rider and is perfect for attaching the saddle strap attachment to the coiled wire when riding with the Hit-Air vest. The Night Latch comes in black, brown and dark brown. Directly below is the brown Night Latch with the Hit-Air Coiled Wire (Advantage style) attached to a hornless saddle. We also refer to the Hit-Air Coiled Wire as a "tether" or "lanyard"; this is the black elastic strap that is looped through the Night Latch below. The bottom photo is a Night Latch on a saddle with a horn. We prefer hornless saddles due to added risk of injury from the horn and it can become entangled with the rider's Hit-Air vest (especially the buckle version) if you slide off to dismount. Note; If you have a non English saddle that does not have a hole under the pommel to attach this night latch, you may want to look at our Amish nylon saddle strap and evaluate if this strap may work for your saddle.
