Elec dog collar enclosure

Post by ggsmith48906 » Mon Aug 15, 2005 8:17 pm

Building a lighted dog collar...<p>Anyone know where one could buy an electronic case similar to the ones Innotek and other manufacturers use for their dog training collars?<p>The design of these cases (small, watertight, uses a dime to unscrew the battery compartment lid, etc) would be ideal!<p>Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.<p>-GGS

I doubt you will find the small enclosure with the battery mount. <p>That particular one is custom made, and probably not available to the general public?

But there are plenty of plastic enclosures that could work in its place. <p>Here is one: http://www.pactecenclosures.com/Plastic ... eries.html<p>Here is the main page: http://www.pactecenclosures.com/<p>Here is a 2x2 box :http://electronicsusa.com/miniboxes1.html

I've used pvc pipe for enclosures. glue a cap on one end and a screw in plug on the other, for battery replacement. You can make it any length or diameter you want, dirt cheap also..<p>[ August 16, 2005: Message edited by: gerty ]</p>

I've also used pvc pipe for enclosures. Glue a cap on one end but used a crutch foot (rubber table leg foot on the other end and some reflective tape it's water tight easy on and offand looks good.
