SportDOG Deluxe Beeper DSL-400Rated stars from 2 customer ratings.
Reviewed: January 21, 2010
By: Dean BThis beeper collar is pretty good. I use it on my GSP in thicker cover where I can't see him. I use it only in point-only mode. The motion sensor is a little too sensitive for my liking. If he pauses to sniff something for even a second or two, the thing starts beeping. I wish it would wait for a 5-second point before starting to beep. My unit is 4 years old, maybe they have improved that by now. I use it in hawk screech mode and at times I am sure it helps me get another bird or two because I think the roosters hold better, but not always.

By: Brad BI have had four of these, and like their performance, but have lost 3 or 4 of the screw-on caps; they like to come off. Sport Dog is pretty good about sending extra caps, if you get the right service person, but sometimes you don't. So, make sure to use something to lock the caps on and you will not suffer a lost dog. Alternatively, you can talk your friends into using them and swipe their caps!

Attaching the Locator to a Collar
The DSL-400 was designed to be both an add-on to an existing training collar, or to be used independently.
If you plan to add the Locator to you training collar, simply remove both lids and slide the collar through the brackets. The Locator collar brackets were designed to fit most sporting collars (1/10 by 1 inch collar). Make sure that the training receiver is positioned below the dog's neck, and that the locator is positioned so that it is on top behind the dog's head.
Both the training receiver and the buckle are used as counterweights to balance the Locator on top of the dog's neck. This will direct the loudness of the locator behind the dog. The collar can be attached to the collar provided in the same manner.
Turning On the Locator
Choose between the features and adjust the switches accordingly.
Make sure the LO-HI switch is set to the LO position for first time use. Then tighten the lid snugly to ensure the lid is watertight.
Please match the "+" and "-" polarity on the battery to the super imposed symbols on the outside of the battery compartment.
Insert the battery into the case and tighten the lid. Please note that the battery lid has an additional feature that allows it to be used as an ON/OFF switch.
Turn the lid until it begins to get difficult to turn. Then align the dot to either the ON or OFF position.
In order to test the unit, turn the dot to align in the ON position, and hold the unit motionless for 2 seconds. The unit should then begin to beep in the point mode.
The battery lid is waterproof in both the ON and OFF position. This feature was designed to allow the hunter to easily turn the unit off in the field without having to remove the collar.
Regular Maintenance and Frequently Asked Questions
Use a damp cloth and mild soap for cleaning. Do not use harsh abrasives or solvents, because these products will damage the casing
Routinely check the tightness of each lid
If volume of the beep begins to get noticeably low, check or replace the battery
When not in use, just turn the battery lid to the OFF position. No need to remove the battery.
DO NOT BE ALARMED WITH THE INTERNAL RATTLING SOUND. THE MOTION SENSOR INSIDE THE CASE CAUSES THE RATTLE TO OCCUR.
While using the Locator with an additional training receiver, be sure to separate the Locator from external antennas and the training receiver for better performance. The antenna can cause unwanted vibrations.
