Two varieties of replacement black cord with breakaway safety clasps are available: rugged cotton and silky soft. These are ordered as a 2 pack of cords to use with chew necklaces. These can also be used to make chewies into chew necklaces or as replacements as needed.
Our cords, like all our Chewigems, are non-toxic and have been safety tested. Every cord is looped on a black snap away safety clasp which will open the safety release if pulled too tightly but then goes back together when re-cradled. This ensures that the cord will not become a strangling hazard but will instead pop apart when tugged hard.
Cords are approx 85 cm and can easily be adjusted or cut to a desired length.
Caution: It is VERY important that once damaged, the cord/clasp should be discarded and replaced. The breakaway clasp and cord are NOT intended for chewing and are purely to hold the necklace in place. If you think your child will chew the clasp then this product is not suitable and you would be better with a bangle. We strongly recommend not to pull on the cord HARD while the pendant is being chewed as this puts force on the stringing hole which is the weakest point of the necklace and could cause it to break.
Chewigems are made from medical grade, FDA approved silicone and are lead, latex, BPA, PVC and Phthalate free.
CHEWIGEM® is designed for mild to moderate chewers. Due to the intended use of the product, wear and tear are expected and products should be checked routinely for damage and used with adult supervision. Discard and replace immediately once damaged. Necklaces are not intended to be worn by children under age 3 due to the concern of long cord strangulation. Clasps and ties contain small parts and may be a choking hazard and are not intended for chewing. "This is not a toy."
