With the increased number of ticks around, and the inevitable splinters or thorns we can pick up in the outdoors, some sort of removal tool is an essential bit of First Aid or “possibles pouch” kit.
The UST Trail Tweezers are a sturdy pair of tweezers some 9.5cm x 1.3cm x 1.3cm in size and weighing just 23g or so, and feature wide rubber finger pads for easy grip, and angled ends.
They also feature an LED light in the middle of the tweezers to help you see what it is you are trying to get hold of. This light has a simple on/off button and can be removed from the tweezers for other use if need be.
Using three LR41 batteries (supplied) and costing around £4.95, the UST Trail Tweezers are simple and effective.
