Benefits of Upright Headlocks

  • Headlocks allow just a few people to lock up and treat a number of animals at one time and eliminate time-consuming chasing. This drastically reduces the labor needed to treat the animals
  • Self locks create a safer, less stressful working environment for animals and staff
  • Our straight upright self locks are hot dip galvanized after welding, which ensures exceptional corrosion resistance. These headlocks have 2-3 times the zinc spray coating found on welded headlocks, making them extremely durable
