When the tick is grasped with the Tick Twister hook, there is no pressure on the tick's body, thus, reducing the risk of the injection of allergenic matters and the transmission of microorganisms.

When the tick is grabbed with tweezers or similar instruments, the tool exerts a pressure on the tick's body: this pressure promotes saliva back-flow in the host skin, and increases the risk of injection of allergenic matters and above all the risk of transmission of tick-borne microorganisms.

The handle ends with an elongated round head, that the user holds easily between the thumb and index finger.

The shape of the handle is such that the head of the handle is on the axis of rotation of the instrument regardless of the degree of engagement of the tick between the teeth.

The fork-shaped lower part has two teeth of trapezoïdal cross-section, enclosing a V-shaped open space that allows adaptation to all sizes of ticks.

The small hook has an open space of 0,1 to 0,15 mm wide, (0,40 mm for the big hook) that allows the holding of even the smallest ticks.

The fork of the hook is 7 mm long (15 mm for the big hook): this allows use of the small hook in cramped conditions, without restricting the rotation.

We highly recommend this safe non toxic tool to remove ticks safely.

The hooks are made of injected plastic(polyoxymethylene=POM).This plastic is recyclable. It can also be incinerated without pollution (no chlorine fumes during combustion). Other reasons for this choice of polymer are its physical and chemical qualities (solidity, resistance to ether and most solvents).

This device works great for removing ticks. Takes about 5 seconds or less to use. Does not leave anything behind. Removes the tick live with all parts intact. Really great!

I have been a vet tech for 20 yrs and have seen so many tick removal products. This is by far the easiest and most effective one I have used. 100% removal of tick with ease. Even the tiniest ticks. No bells. No whistles. Just a simple product that works.
