APPLICATOR INSTRUCTIONS

Don’t Forget Your Applicator!

Some of National Band & Tag’s products require an applicator to completely seal the tag or band shut. When this is required NB&T has the applicator available, we recommend using our style because we manufacture them all in-house (with the exception of plastic applicators) so that they match perfectly with their band or tag.

Products that require an applicator include Butt-End leg bands, metal adjustable and non-adjustable leg bands, Self-piercing ear tags and wing bands, apron tags, fish tags and pelt tags. Applicators can be found on the same webpage as their matching product.
