Hitching posts function like fences when right clicked with a lead, and have an equestrian-style designs for various purposes. Mini versions are shorter and ideal for placing on the ground and atop fences or walls.
Right click a hitching post while holding an attached lead to connect the entity's lead to the hitch. Multiple entities can be connected to a single hitching post if enough leads are owned. Right click the hitching post again to disconnect - the lead(s) will drop on the ground nearby. SWEM hitching posts have a custom connection added, so the loops of custom hitching does not show the vanilla rope knot texture.
