Pop-up/Towed Attachment Aids
Pop-up and towed tags use implanted anchors to attach the tether and tag to the study animal. We provide a number of different anchors illustrated in the Anchors for Tethered/Towed Tags (PDF), link below.
Applicator pins are used to hold the anchor for insertion. We provide customized applicator pins for our different anchors. The single-point pin is used for deploying the Domeier and Wilton anchors. The slotted-end titanium (Ti) pin is used for the Ti anchors.
Swobbit poles are commercially-available products which are convenient to use with our applicator pins. We stock the short handle and telescoping (3′ to 6′) poles. The pole and handle have a foam hand grip and are interchangeable.
We provide a customized dart bushing to attach the single-point and slotted-end applicator pins to the pole/handle. The same dart bushing works with a number of Swobbit brand handles and poles.
