Breakaway and adjustable collar for catsBlind

in CAD Design held by mitel
TIME REMAINING: 10 days, 9 hours
1) Breakaway - cats can release the clip by itself for safety reason.
2) Adjustable - pet owner can adjust the tension of collar for different sizes of pets. E.g. Higher tension for bigger cats, which makes them more difficult to release the clip themselves than kitten.
3) The design will be for small sized buckle that attaches to a 3/8" wide strap. It would be good if it can fit the smallest size to 1/8" as well. But 1/8" is a bonus feature not a must.
4) The CAD format has to be 3D print. We will test the feasibility of the design with 3D printers.
5) The design should not infringe on an existing patent.
Function, Usability, Form
Additional Information
A breakaway collar ensures if cat gets its collar stuck or caught on something that entangles it, keeps the cat safe from injury, choking or worse.
For the adjustable feature, cat owner needs to be able to easily adjust the tension (3 levels of holding strength: High tension for senior cat, middle tension for adult cat, low tension for kitten) right on the buckle. Cat owner can increase the loading tension of buckle whereas the cat can still break free if placed under too much tension.

File format: STL preferred

#4 First Design Concept by Luke B
This is my first design concept. Just a simple clip that allows the user to push the clip in in discrete notches to set the clip tension. This is just a concept. If you think this concept is worth pursuing I will improve the design and finalise it. The top of the design has been removed so that the internal mechanism can be seen.
