The Care Plus Tick Out is an essential addition to any First Aid kit when travelling in areas where Lyme disease is prevalent, increasingly so in the UK. Easily used it firmly grips the tick or a nymph minimising damage and reducing the risk of leaving claws or pincers in the bite area. The Tick Out includes a clear set of instructions.
Once the tick has been removed the bite area can be disinfected with an alcohol pad, but these should not be used until the tick has been removed.

Does not work on small ticks. Gave up after 10 minutes of trying.
Since getting a dog a few years ago, I have worked my way through pretty much every tick remover on the market. This one is probably the worst of them all, because of the following:
Forget this one, get one of those that look like a mini crowbar instead. Or get a pair of decent tweezers, not the best tool but far better than this.
I brought these to put in first aid kits which are used by my DofE groups. I chose this type of tick removal device because it looks sturdy and is easy to use. I'm glad I purchased this product because a student unfortunately found a tick on her hip during last week's Gold DofE Expedition to Snowdonia. The student successfully removed the tick quite quickly whilst using the tool. She did state that it was probably easier to use on larger ticks compared to very small ones.
Excellent and lightweight little product - must have insurance for the hiker. I bought one of these a few months back and only (unfortunately) had cause to use it recently on a trip in the Highlands. It did the job really well - despite being lightweight and made of plastic, the grip is powerful and really effective in removing the tick. The light weight of the tool makes it ideal and it now has a permanent place in my first aid kit - there are others on the market which I did look at and handle, but I'm really pleased with this one and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
