Heavy Duty Self-Locks (HSL)

Longer runs without intermediate posts

Product Overview

Headlocks are designed to give staff the ability to restrain multiple animals at one time, streamlining labor efficiency and making physical examinations, vaccinations, artificial inseminations, pregnancy checks, and routine treatments faster and safer. VES-Artex Heavy-duty Self-locks (HSL) accomplish all these objectives. 

The Heavy-duty self-locks utilize all the same features found on VES-Artex Standard self-locks with the additional feature of a heavy-duty 2.75″ (70mm) square top and bottom rail. This robust bar is excellent for larger animals as it can withstand powerful impacts. The top and bottom blocker guide the cows to enter the headlock correctly. All components are hot-dipped galvanized after welding to increase the system’s durability and longevity. HSL’s are compatible for use with calves, heifers, and cows.

Noise reducing impact pads surround the locking clasps to keep the barn quite and comfortable for the herd. There are multiple handle, bracket, and clamp style options to customize the headlock system for a barn.
