In reference to the patent: CA2742535A1

I'd like to know if the dog leash in Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Explore-Retractable-26-Feet-Supports-110-Pound/dp/B005NK5DEU/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1436285688&sr=1-1&keywords=Retractable+Dog+Leash) is referring to this patent when they say "The patented one-hand braking and recoil system" in their leash, as this only mentions weapons.

No. As the A at the end of the patent number shows, this is a patent application, not a granted patent. If they say patented, they are referring to a granted patent, else it would be patent pending.


There are several U.S. patents relating to animal leashes with original assignee "Flexi-Bogdahn Technik Gmbh & Co. Kg"; I think most likely they are referring to one of these patents.
