The multiple jump heights, rounded edges, and flexible material provide both convenience and safety. But here’s a tip to make your Clip and Go Jump Cup Strips even safer. Once you’ve snapped the strip onto your upright, install only the bottom screw. Now if your dog jumps into the upright, the strip will flex and twist around the upright, giving you an added degree of safety. If you’ve already installed Clip and Go strips on your jumps, simply remove the top two screws on each strip. (This method works best when you’re using 1" PVC pipe rather than 1¼").
