Bracelets once used by the Goa'uld Cronus to insure the most obedience among his Jaffa. Designed to work in pairs, once they are attached to two individuals separating more than 100 feet for more than 30 minutes is fatal. Also, if one user dies, the other eventually dies as well.

According to Teal'c, Cronus would strap one bracelet to a prisoner and one to the Jaffa in charge of that prisoner. If the prisoner was killed, the Jaffa would die. If the prisoner escaped, the Jaffa then, too, would die. The kor mak insured that the prisoner was taken to the desired location and the Jaffa responsible for him would be at his side.

The kor mak can be removed by a small, red crystal key.
