These clamps are typically handheld, reusable, manual, metallic instruments that include a post, a bell, and a plate; the post and bell are placed over the glans (for its protection); the foreskin is pulled over the outside of the bell, clamped between the bell and the plate, and excised with a surgical knife that is run around the bell. A variety of different devices are available, offering different degrees of protection (or none at all) to the glans.
