Constructed to withstand heavy use, the Slapper is a folded, thick strip of black leather fasted to a D ring with 8 heavy-duty grommets. The grommets are embossed with the Sportsheets "S" and the strap is embossed with the Sportsheets logo. It's a simple design, but clearly sturdy and made to last.
The strap can bite pretty hard if you put your arm into it, but it doesn't have to. The folded-over strap design allows for a fairly loud smacking sound even with a light swing. This means even light smacking sounds produce a loud smack, adding quite a bit of drama to the scene.
Welting and bruising will vary depending on how hard you use this product, but also depending on how the skin of the receiver responds. Heavy use could result in skin rupturing or bleeding, so keep this in mind when engaging in heavy play.
Basic cleaning can be done with a damp cloth and mild soap. Use of a soap made specifically for leather would be recommended. Because this item can't be thoroughly cleaned without damage, try to avoid contact with bodily fluids.
