These heavy-duty band cutters cut through aluminum bands like butter! It is a good idea to keep these on-hand in case of an emergency, or if you simply want to remove a bird's band. They can also be used on small stainless steel bands (5.5mm, 6.5mm, 7mm, or any thin-wall SS band).
In order to use, have 1 or 2 people holding the bird and its foot so that it does not move. Then, another person cuts the band twice, on opposite sides so that it falls off.
These ship either from the US or Canada, depending on your location. If you need express shipping, you may upgrade it during checkout.
