Hot-Shot? introduces its latest non-electric animal handling product, the 30? SORTING FLAG. Designed with assistance from industry leaders in livestock management, the SORTING FLAG is a simple and effective new tool for handling hogs and cattle.

The flag acts as a visual barrier, helping handlers to direct and guide animals in and out of barns, alleyways, and trucks. Its size (31? x 30?) provides handlers with a virtual ?wall?, and combined with the black color flag material provides an effective guiding tool. By blocking an animal's line of sight, or gently working the flag over the back, sides, and rear of the animals, the SORTING FLAG allows handlers to efficiently and quietly get their job done.

The SORTING FLAG is lightweight and made of industrial strength materials. The handle is constructed of strong fiberglass, and is hollow to reduce weight. The flag material is a tough rubberized vinyl that can handle the tough environments of hog and cattle producers and processors.

In addition, the SORTING FLAG has a cutout handle in the middle of the flag (see diagram) that easily accommodates large hand sizes - even if wearing gloves.

Rechargeable Battery Systems

Batteries for the Green HS2000, Blue LMPLUS, and Red Sabre-Six

These units require six size 'C' alkaline batteries to operate.  Hot-Shot has a High Amperage Alkaline Livestock Prod Cell that is designed to work best in electric prods.  Because electric prods are considered a 'high drain device', a higher amperage gives the user the best performance and battery life.  The Hot-Shot Battery will last longer and perform better than most 'off-the-shelf' alkaline batteries.  They are available at most Hot-Shot Dealers (usually on the shelf next to the prods).

Batteries for the Power-Mite

The Power-Mite requires two 9 Volt Alkaline batteries.  Hot-Shot does sell 9 Volt batteries to its dealers, but most 9 Volt cells on the market will work just fine (Energizer, Duracell, etc...).

Rechargeable Battery System

Hot-Shot has designed a Rechargeable Battery Pack (Part # RBP) to fit into the Green HS2000 and the Blue LMPLUS (we don't recommend the RBP be used with the Red Sabre-Six as the mechanical points in the Sabre-Six can burn out).  The RBP fits in place of the six 'C' alkaline batteries and can be charged using a 110 Volt (wall outlet) or 12 Volt (auto) charger.  A Hot-Shot charger must be used with the RBP or the warranty on the RBP is void.  The RBP:

How to Repair a HOT-SHOT
Repairs & Adjustments (Print for your reference) 

If your HOT-SHOT fails to operate:

?Check the batteries to be sure they are producing a high amperage output. If batteries are weak, replace batteries. We highly recommend our high amperage HOT-SHOT Alkaline Battery (ALK) for best performance in your HOT-SHOT.
?Check all metal contact surfaces on the prod to make sure they are clean and free of corrosion. This would include all contacts on the motor and all contacts in the end cover and handle.

If this does not get the unit to work, follow the steps below corresponding to the unit you have:

Green HS2000 - Replace the motor, part # HS1. If it is still under warranty, the unit needs to be returned to your dealer or the factory for proper repair or replacement. The HS1 motor is not repairable.

Blue LMPLUS - Replace the motor, part # LMP1. If it is still under warranty, the unit needs to be returned to your dealer or the factory for proper repair or replacement. The LMP1 motor is not repairable.

Brown LM1000 - Replace the motor, part # LMP1 (the LM1 was discontinued and the LMP1 is the replacement). If it is still under warranty, the unit needs to be returned to your dealer or the factory for proper repair or replacement. The LM1 motor is not repairable.
(this prod is no longer manufactured).

Power-Mite - Send to factory for repairs. Opening the unit will void the warranty.

Red Sabre-Six - Mechanical Prod

?Remove the end cover and the shaft from the case, and remove the batteries.
?With a screw driver, push the driver motor straight back from the shaft end of the case out through the battery compartment.
?Clean the points:  Check for corrosion on the tungsten points on the M-2 vibrator reed, and the M-3 vibrator lug contact. If there is a white film on the points, it indicates the presence of corrosion. It is advisable to draw a thin piece of abrasive stick or fine emery paper between the tungsten points to remove any corrosion.
?Adjust the points:  It may be necessary to adjust the tension of the points. This is most easily accomplished through the use of our Motor Tester, part # HST (available from Hot-Shot).

If all else fails (or if you have an OLD PROD and want to see if we can repair it) return the unit to your dealer or to the factory for repairs.  Returns to the factory should be sent to:

Hot-Shot Products Co., Inc.
5441 West 125th Street
Savage, MN  55378  USA
 
Or call 1-800-328-2941 with any questions.

Other Uses
Electric prods are designed and manufactured for USE ON LIVESTOCK ONLY .  Any other use is considered product mis-use.  Electric prods are a tool used everyday by livestock handlers around the world to aid in the safe movement of livestock.  It has been and remains one of the most humane methods of handling livestock during transportation.

Use with Dogs

Electric prods are not designed nor endorsed by Hot-Shot to be used in the training of or for protection from dogs.  Many people ask if using electric prods on dogs will hurt their animals.  No testing has been performed by Hot-Shot using electric prods on dogs in any way, and Hot-Shot has no information available about any effects prods would have on a dog.   Consult your veterinarian if you have further questions.

Prods Have NO Relation to Stun Guns

Electric prods HAVE NO RELATION TO STUN GUNS - they are two totally different products.  The output created by electric prods is only a mild electric shock - just enough to help move large cattle and hogs.  Stun guns, on the other hand, create outputs designed to knock a person down so they can run away from their attacker.  Because electric prods only produce a mild shock, if a person was shocked with a prod it would feel somewhat like a bee sting.
