This tool is exceedingly hard to operate. My husband and I are not big people and so our hands are not enormous; you need enormous and very strong hands to fit around the handles and compress this tool effectively, and to pull it open. The alternative is using two hands to compress it, which means you can't hold the spermatic cord in place to ensure it gets pinched, or it takes 3 people—one to hold cord, one to hold lamb's legs, one to operate emasculatome. This was a big disappointment and total hassle. We now have to redo a few rams which won't be an easy task for any of us. This method is preferred by so many, but don't use this tool for it!

I really wanted this to work, but could barely get it open. Once we did, my sheep and cattle experienced friends could not keep the cords from slipping out of the tool. This is not a one handed operation either, by the way. After trying multiple times, we gave up and ended up banding (not at all the plan...) Do not recommend this tool at all.

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.
Cheap and easy to use. There's just a way in using it. So practice. Never experienced a problem for lambs and kids that are castrated.
