  • Care
    Signal whips should be held with the knob at the end in the palm of the hand, with the whip allowed to swivel in the hand so as to reduce the bending stress in the thong near the knob. If the whip is held firmly in the hand, and the thong forced to bend severely near the knob, the whip will fail prematurely in the area of excess bending.

    The ends of the braided leather buried under the thread of the cracker will poke out as the whip is cracked. this is no cause for concern. The thread is much more elastic than the leather, and so when the whip is cracked the thread tends to creep out over the leather ends and allow the ends to poke out. There are three knots holding the ends of the strands, spaced to ensure that the whip does not unravel. It is best to leave the ends that poke out, and not to trim them off.

    When the fluff on the end of the cracker wears down to the knot, this knot may be undone or cut, to form a second fluff which may be worn down to the next knot, at which time the cracker should be replaced.

    We will replace braided crackers when needed at a charge of $50.00 plus handling. Please return your whip by insured post or United Parcel.

    As with all whips, the signal whips should be given a coating of Pecard Leather Dressing every few months, more frequently if used in wet snow.
