How do you fit a grackle noseband (not the mexican sort)? How does the action differ from a flash?

'Scuse my ignorance, my brain has packed its bags and gone on holiday for the bank holiday weekend.

Thanks

The headpiece is adjusted so that the top noseband lies just under the bottom of the Cheek bone. Then gently pull the bottom straps down and secure with at least two fingers between horse and noseband.

There is sometimes a strap that comes from the top noseband to the bottom noseband.

The whole thing stops the horse opening it's moouth and crossing it's jaw.
