    I shall keep one in my wallet from now on.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    They work on splinters, etc as well


    They don't work very well in, um, hard to access places
    Or on dogs where the fur just gets in the way. I prefer the hooked tweezer type.

    I am sure it is better than nothing, but when something as effective and efficient and inexpensive as the O'Tom Tick remover exists why bother to carry anything other than the best?

    I have used the O'Tom tools for the last ten years or so and have removed two or three ticks a week from my tick-magnet springers during Spring to Autumn. I have not had one failure / break up in that time. Using tick tweezers or the stainless version of the card my success rate was fifty / fifty.

    Go and have a look on the O'Tom website and look for the micro photographs of the tick mouth parts with its backward pointing barbs/hairs and you can see why rotating the tick in order to wrap the barbs around the beak works so well rather than just pulling out straight.

    No connection, just a relieved and grateful user!

    O'tom is the finest tick remover. Period.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.
