Whether a tick bursts, the skin around the tick bite is infectious, or you simply desire a clean Tickgripper, there are many reasons to change the gripper head regularly. Nothing is easier than that: remove the old gripper head and put on a new one. It sounds easy, and it is easy. Simply choose the appropriate gripper head replacement, MED or VET.

Gripper heads for humans and animals differ by the the cavity inside the gripper head, which conforms to the shape of the tick to be removed. Due to the fur in animals, ticks are detected much later than in humans. By the time ticks are discovered in animals, they have often have had a longer suction period and are therefore bigger. Due to these circumstances the cavity of the gripper head VET is spherical.

On the smooth human skin ticks are detected earlier. The detected ticks are often very small and known as nymphs or 'baby ticks'. They are not less infectious than the adult ticks despite their size of only a few millimeters. To grip these tiny ticks, the gripper head MED has a greater wall thickness at his top.

The removal of very small ticks is a challenge, especially if you want to remove them without squeezing. That's why tickSAFE has developed the open gripper head. It provides a good view of the "operating field" when grabbing small ticks.


New: The open gripper head. Advantage: better view when grabbing small ticks.
