ONLY DEJACQUES has a mechanical device with moving parts — housed within a quick attach / release clasp and a non-slip slide.
ONLY DEJACQUES has mechanical clasp and slide parts that are
precision molded of superior engineering grade acetal resin with 25% glass content to control shrinkage and increase strength. (Interior dimensions must be exact to allow proper control — movement & placement — of interior moving parts.)

instrument ring as it is pushed against small visible portion of jaws

jaws open by maintaining pressure against "plunger" till instrument
is removed. (User must never attempt to remove instrument by pulling
Steel jaws are tumbled to eliminate sharp edges and friction then tempered to retain 43 degree angle — essential for proper interior movement (unseen interior provides "action"). Jaws
must ALWAYS move freely.
Jaws have been stress-tested to 120 pounds tensile strength.
Cord tests to 250 pounds tensile strength.
Neck band is 100% cotton with leather end pieces, providing comfort without added bulk. NOTE that
ONLY the cotton portion touches user's neck. Leather pieces are
placed so that leather does not come into contact with user's neck.
