Hot Chaps Protect Against Chewing And Biting Hogs
Detachable Hot Chaps leggings use a mild electric shock, similar to a Hot Shot live-stock prod. Hogs respond quickly, leaving you "hands free" to work without the hassle of chewing and biting hogs.
Hog Chaps are worn on the outside of your pant legs ù just like regular chaps. They're equipped with Velcro fasteners and slip on and off in a matter of seconds.
The mild electric shock hogs get when they nose against the chaps is provided by a rechargeable battery that straps to your waist.
Recommended for use on pigs of all ages except pregnant sows and gilts.
Said to be "perfect for repairmen, electricians, plumbers, veterinarians, hog producers, and anyone else working around hogs," the new Hot Chaps sell for $299. They're made of durable, easy to clean rubberized vinyl material. An outer foil covering con-ducts the electric current which mildly shocks pigs when they nose against it.
