This is the latest creation from the House of Basciano. The M5 Sleeper padded muzzle gag with a detachable padded chest harness. This amazing combo was created in the Lockdown, by listening to others who are in the Lockdown who had suggestions of improvements. The M5 is attached to the chest harness via two straps with snap buttons, on both the front and back. Locking posts have been added to Lock the muzzle down into the harness. All combined this M5/harness combo requires 17 locks.
The M5 has 14 padded pieces, squishing down against your head.
The chest harness has 10 padded pieces.
That makes 24 little leather pillows pressing comfortably against your skin, while also being heavy. The first thing you will notice about this item is how solid, heavy, yet comfortable it is. And it all locks on. No need to be locked in a padded cell. The padded cell is locked on YOU!
With a breather hole, it can be worn as long as you want, as it also works for feeding/drinking.
The “M5 Sleeper” Fully Padded Muzzle Gag was created to be the ultimate head harness muzzle gag, built for comfort, play options, and long-term use. This muzzle has by far the most padding ever added to a muzzle. Fourteen padded pieces in total encasing your head give this muzzle the best feel of anything you will find out there. Drings all over this muzzle allow for all kinds of connection points, and with the addition of a breather hole, you might never want to come out of it. The breather hole works extremely well as a feeding/drinking hole, also promoting its long-term use.
All straps are made from a very thin, soft garment leather, folding over, and stitched 4 layers thick so that it’s also firm enough to handle the rigors of use.
The M1 muzzle has 2 padded pieces, thick belt leather straps. Lockable.
The M2 has 1 padded piece, folded garment leather straps, with a tall posture collar. Lockable.
The M3 has 1 padded piece, a Posture collar, A few wider straps, lower Drings to connect to a Bulldog Harness. Non-Locking
The M4 has 3 padded pieces, wider garment leather straps, Lower Drings to connect to a Bulldog Harness, Non-Locking.
The M5 has 14 padded pieces, wider garment leather straps, Lower Drings o connect to a Bulldog Harness. Locking.
The M5 also addresses some comfort issues with other muzzles. The cheekbone area of the muzzle itself has been contoured, with added buckle pads. A leather keeper has been added to the top strap to better hold it in place. More eyelets have been added to all the straps to allow for the locking posts to have a wider range of fit. Padded has been added to the back buckles to alleviate pressure on the back of the head.

The Difference between the M5 Sleeper and the M5 Lockdown is the back panel. The Sleeper has a flat back with fewer Drings further helping to alleviate pressure points on the back of the head.
