For catching sheep and/or goats by the neck or leg.
It’s both a leg and a neck crook, obviously—but the most important advantage is the self-locking lever on the leg portion that ensures that an animal’s leg, once caught, remains caught until released by human hands.
Triangle point at end of leg shaft allows crook to be used as walking stick over treacherous ground.

For catching small breeds, lambs, sheep with wool, or goats with a neck crook: Once the neck is inside the loop, instantly rotate the crook with your wrist. This applies pressure to both sides of the neck and give you a precious second or two to pull the animal into reach of your hands.

This is the ONLY way to catch a goat! The catch mechanism works great.

Agree with the reviews. This is a GREAT product, but best use is in small enclosed spaces for best results. Alternatively have found if you put a few flakes of alfalfa down, with hungry goats you may be able to catch a few of them at their back legs. This is the best crook on the market.

Works as advertised.

The Kiwi Crook is a good tool for catching sheep. It does have its limitations. Don't expect to go out in the wide open spaces and catch any sheep you want unless you can out run sheep. But if you can get them in relative close quarters it works great.

According to the description: The most important advantage is the self-locking lever on the leg portion that ensures that an animal’s leg, once caught, remains caught until released by human hands.
I agree that is a great feature, but the nut fell off within two months causing the self-locking lever to fall off. I was not able to find the parts so I called the company for a lever replacement. They do not sell the replacement lever — I would need to buy the entire crook again. This is the second one that has had this problem. It is a great device, but Premier should sell replacement parts.
