Make a Holder for your Numnuts Device

This Numnuts holder is quick and easy to make!

It speeds up workflow at lamb marking and helps the device to function smoothly by keeping it upright when it is placed down.

Made from an old Elastrator® Ring tub, it only takes a few simple steps:

  • Cut off the screw thread with a Stanley Knife
  • Cut out a notch the width of the bar code to about half way down the tub
  • Round the corners to help ease of entry and exit, and trim off any sharp edges…

And that’s it! You now have your very own Numnuts holder.

The holder can be screwed to a wooden base to give a firm footing, or attached directly to the oil drum or table you keep next to the lamb marking cradle. A nifty solution is to Araldite the base to a magnetic bowl (like this one) so it magnetises to the oil drum or metal surface, making stable and moveable, giving you more flexibility with your marking set up.

A belt holster is useful for side-by-side or shoot cradles...

This belt mounted pouch is a good option for those on the move with side-by-side cradles or using a Vet Marker type shoot, if there isn’t a fixed place to put the device down. This one, made by Kincrome, fits the device nicely, and provides a place to hold your rings and a few bottles of spare NumOcaine® when you are on the go.

You can buy the Kincrome Numnuts Belt holder from Bunnings (click here) and other hardware stores.
