Wide Self-Locks (WSL)

More room for every size animal

Product Overview

Designed for cow comfort and labor efficiency, Wide Self Locks (WSL) provide dairy farmers and their employees the ability to restrain multiple animals at one time. This streamlines labor efficiency and makes physical examinations, vaccinations, artificial inseminations, pregnancy checks and routine treatments faster and safer.

VES-Artex’s WSL’s offer an extra-wide top and bottom opening, giving animals more room to enter and exit the headlock. The top and bottom openings are 17″ (43cm). This style utilizes a 1.97″ x 1.57″ (50mm x 40mm) rectangular top rail.

These self-locks are easy to install and are an excellent solution for larger animals or those not overly confident with using headlocks. Rubber bumpers surround the clasps to reduce the system’s noises which creates a calm and low-stress environment for the herd and staff.

There are multiple handle, bracket, and clamp style options to customize the headlock system for any barn. All headlocks have a visual locking indicator, bottom blockers, a quick release mechanism, and head openings that are always open. All components are hot-dipped galvanized after welding to increase the system’s durability and longevity.
