Would not recommend as there are gaps on the sides that allow the cord to escape the clamp. It is difficult to tell if the cord has in fact been crimped fully or escaped.
I would recommend the "side" clamp tool instead. It costs more, but is well worth the certainty of knowing whether the cord has been fully crimped.

This item is inexpensive and pretty solidly built (made in Pakistan) but it does have space gaps on both sides of the closure that make it a little harder to use. Fias Co Farm's website has a great picture showing this: http://fiascofarm.com/goats/buck-wether-info.htm

Works great if you know how to use it. I'm sure there are others, but I like the good picture step by step in Technical Bulletin #18 "Castration of Sheep and Goats" published by ESGPIP, can be found online at http://www.esgpip.net/PDF/Technical%20bulletin%20No.%2018.pdf Also, be aware it can
cause problems if not used correctly--instead of the scrotum drying up, it swells, ruptures and attracts flies. Key is to make sure scrotum still has circulation by never clamping the entire scrotum across with a single clamp and don't allow the clamp marks (one from each side) to meet. Excellent tool. Testicles dry up and scrotum shrinks within 21 days or so. Good method for castrating older lambs. Important that the tool is stored open (not clamped shut) or it may lose adjustment. Needless to say, keep it oiled and in good condition.
