How to Use
- The male and female tags will come to you slightly connected. You will need to tear them apart.
- Place the flag of the female tag under the metal spring finger. The printed side of the female tag will be against the jaw of the applicator. Slide the male tag over the metal pin. Be sure to push it all the way onto the pin. The printed side of the male tag will be against the other jaw of the applicator.
- Make sure the tag is correctly placed. Slowly squeeze the handles together to be sure the male pin aligns with the female opening (be careful to not put the tag together yet).
- Place the ear between the jaws of the applicator. While gripping the ear, quickly and firmly squeeze the handles together until the male tag is inserted through the ear and into the female tag.
Note: We will print both sides (male and female) unless otherwise specified.
Inserting Tags In Cold Weather
Plastic tags (all brands) are much easier to install if they are warm. Why? As the temperature drops below freezing plastic becomes less flexible (more stiff) and forcing the male point of a tag through the female takes many more lbs. of pressure (because the female must expand).
So if you care about your hands it’s a good idea to keep the tags above freezing in very cold weather. It takes very little to do this. One method is to simply store them while tagging in a small bucket, cardboard box or tool box with a lid alongside a sealed pop bottle full of warm water. The warm water will keep both the air and the tags warmer in the container.

1.2" Q-flex tags are ideal size for new born baby lambs. They are light enough for young ears to support. The color of the numbers is a little lighter than painted number tags and can be harder to read when dirty. The laser printing is more durable than paint though.

Great tags, easy to read and color stands out. We'll see how they endure over time but so far we'd buy again. Great to have personalized tags in such a short time.

I LOVE these tags, great for my Shetland Sheep, they don't make their ears sag and don't hang out so far as to catch on everything. They are also perfect for market goat kids to give them a tag at birth so they form a nice tag hole for their county fair tags later on. (We had a huge issue with the county tags getting infected when placed in the ears in May-June but after having these little tags to put in first really makes a difference. These tags are small but you can still read them well and the color seems to last compared to the Qflex 1.5, Our Shetland sheep are registered with a non scrappie tag so these work great for them. My only draw back is the stem of these is not flexible like the other Q flex tags and the tip is just plastic. But over all it's a great little tag.

This is the first time I used the tags. They work great on the ears of baby goats. They are easy to see and don't make their ears droop out of shape.

Perfect size for our new born fainters. They go in easily and are easy to read. It was nice to find them in blue and pink so that we can see which are doelings and bucklings.
