Fits collars with 1" - 1 1/2" spacing between contacts including Dogtra, Innotek, Tritronics, and some SportDOG and PetSafe collars.
The 24 hour Surface Conductor Grid Adapter is designed to replace the two metal electrodes on remote trainers, bark collars, and containment system collars and solves two common problems with electronic collars:
Allows long wear times without skin tissue breakdown
Improves electrical energy transfer from the collar to your dog's skin
SCG Surface Conductor Grid
Two plastic acorn nuts with 6-32 stainless steel inserts
Two 6-32/6-32 stainless steel threaded stud adapters
Two 6-32/4-40 stainless steel threaded stud adapters

Why the Problem Exists:
The #1 performance problem with traditional and existing electronic training devices is the capability to interface their output to the animal's sensory system consistently and effectively over time, and without causing trauma to the animal's skin, both of which lead to behavioral side-effects. As an example -- a barking dog is just waiting for the owner to take the collar off so it can bark again. When a containment system is being used, one must kennel the dog during neck resting periods. While using a remote trainer, subtleness is extremely important where the level of stimulation being deployed needs to be clearly understood by the dog.
By simply redirecting the stimulator's output energy through many conductors spaced in a small centralized location, this concentrated energy greatly improves the excitation of the nerve endings; wherein, even lower levels of stimulation can deliver concise, consistent, and efficient messages to the animal's sensory system while not causing tissue breakdown, even with 24/7 usage.
Continuous wear-time without causing skin tissue breakdown (anti-bark and containment fencing devices), while reducing the level of stimulation (remote trainers) allows for animals to learn quicker with improved behavior modification results with virtually no trauma. "Real" value realized for the customer's investment.
Why the SCG System works:
Existing training devices use at least two protruding metal electrodes to distribute the stimulator's output to the animal. These two electrodes are attached to the stimulator housing and are commonly spaced from 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart. They must protrude far enough from the stimulator housing to penetrate the animal's coat and make direct contact with the skin -- generally 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in length. The distance alone between the two electrodes requires many more nerve endings needing to be energized consistently while the mass of these two electrodes impairs the focal point of the electrical energy.
With most of today's electronic training products offering the means to adjust the level of stimulation delivered to the animal, subtleness is extremely important during training sessions when applying different levels or kinds of stimulation. Unfortunately, this requires greater importance on the performance of the electronic circuitry to transfer its energy output to the animal consistently and effectively. This demand is what contributes to the poor performance capability of these products, and is conveniently overcome by simply installing the SCG adapter.
By providing this improved interface, the dog will now be able to learn what is expected from its human partner quicker, easier, and with less confusion (stress), and in many cases at lower levels of stimulation. Conversely, the owner/trainer can remove the fear-factor concerning neck trauma leading to unnecessary veterinarian costs.
The perfect solution to skin breakdown with e-collars/bark collars!
June 22, 2021
My GSP has very high drive and has to wear either an e-collar or bark collar at home (she thinks she’s the tollkeeper and anything that walks in front of the house or behind the backyard has to pay a “toll”). Her neck has suffered skin breakdown from wearing a collar daily; even when I tighten the collar so the contacts are on a different part of her neck, by the end of the day her neck looks like a vampire bit her. After removing the contact leads on her e-collar (Garmin G3; photo 1) and bark collar (Dogtra YS600; photo 2) and replacing them with the contact grid, her neck no longer skin breakdown from the collar. Additionally, the collar doesn’t have to be as tight on her neck as it did before installing the contact grid.
The mounting instructions that come with the contact grid are easy to follow; if you need more detailed instructions (including how to adjust the mounting brackets to fit your collar) the manufacturer’s website is easy to find via Google search. I recommend using a 5/16” socket wrench to screw the acorn nuts on; a regular 5/16” wrench will round the nuts.
The conductor grid will fit on a Dogtra YS600 bark collar without any loss of function as long as the back of the conductor grid is touching the bark sensor (not an issue if you tighten the acorn nuts correctly).
If you have a dog with short hair (GSP, Weimaraner, Vizsla, etc), you need to have this contact grid mounted on all of your e-collars and bark collars.
Fits onto any e-collar with removable contact points
Easy to install
Works with bark collars if the plate is contacting the bark sensor
Won't work with long-haired dogs
