The operation of both the Tri-Bander and XL are the same. Difference is the size of the animal you're working with. Refer to our Comparisons Chart.
Both tools are used for various functions in Castration / Emasculation procedures to include docking.
Both Castrators have a Cam over feature built into the tools. Meaning that when stretching the band to the open position, there will be a resistance. Once the band is in the full open position, the resistance is very little and only requires a slight amount of pressure to keep the band in the open position and the handles in a closed position. This allows the operator to hold the tool with one hand and freely use the other hand to help apply the band. Once the band is applied in the proper position, then a slight push with one finger will allow the band to close and the handles open.
