We bought one of these (29mm) a couple of years ago to help restrain a sheep while we hand-sheared. With the sheep not being able to kick out and/or right herself, the work was a lot easier. The cuff is simple and quick to clip on, doesn't slip off, and it did the job perfectly. This year we bought two more, one 29mm and one 24mm, to restrain sheep prior to slaughter. We have used rope to secure their legs in the past but, having used the cuff for shearing, we know that these are going to be a huge improvement over the rope. Better for us, and better for the sheep.

The cuff worked very well on our ram lambs. I drive a few at a time covered in the back of my pick-up for a 25 minute ride to the abattoir and didn't have any issues when using the cuff. I took off one star as the spring mechanism could work a bit smoother particularly when you have an uncooperative animal. However this is way better then tying their feet with rope.

this does work very nice - however the size is to small for my rams - I wish they had an extra large! I like to hook the front leg to the back leg. this works good on my ewes
Some strains of hair sheep can be utterly wild, especially if the flock has been used primarily for training Border Collie herding dogs. You catch the lamb (sometimes in mid-air)and when you got him on his back he doesn't do what sheep are supposed to do, i.e., lie quietly. I found the small restraint cuff to be a little miracle worker in this situation! It fits right in your pants pocket, read to grab and use.
