* It should be noted that Yamato is never actually seen creating the stocks in the manga (even though the stocks are made of wood), so whether or not this was created by Yamato or was there from before is unknown. It is also possible that the stocks were made entirely of wood and illustrated as metal in the anime.
* In the anime, the stocks were illustrated with metal rings.
Yamato uses wooden stocks to suppress the targets chakra with his Wood Release. There are also two candle-like appendages on each end of the device similar to the technique Yamato used during Naruto's training.
