The California Bander is a stainless steel tool which applies stretchy surgical tubing for fast and easy bloodless castrating. A foam coating on the handle helps hands stay comfortable and flexible. With practice, castrating can be done in just a few seconds per animal. Precut, 6″ natural latex bands have an aluminum T-clip attached which fits into a slot on the tool. The band is stretched around the scrotal sack, locked back into the clip and the tool is removed. The band stays on for approx. 20 to 30 days as tissues dry out and fall off. Works with all ages and breeds. California Bander is boxed with instructions. Order bands separately.
