This item has been discontinued. We recommend trying The Tick Key
Trix Ticklasso is very fast to adapt and therefore easy to use with children and pets, who sometimes are difficult to hold still.
The long and narrow design makes it easy to use in ears, thick fur and other difficult and narrow places. The remover also works very well even if fur or hair comes into the loop.
The removed tick will always stay at the tip of the remover which enables you to dispose the tick without even touching it. The loop is made of special fiber which has pull strength of more than 20 lbs and the loop fully extended is big enough for removing almost all tick species in the world.
The product is manufactured in Sweden and has been approved by the Medical Products Agency and been granted with a CE marking. Trix is delivered in transparent blister pack together with a user manual.
Always twist the tick away when using TRIX Tick Lasso
If you look at the photomicrograph of the ticks sting- and suction organ (hypostome) you can easily see that if pulling the tick straight out the barbs grip and get even more stuck in the skin, (that´s what barbs are for), and the risk of pulling the tick apart increases.
By twisting instead the barbs will release their grip easier and all of the front part together with the head will come along. Tests have shown that it does not matter in what direction you twist, clockwise or counterclockwise, both ways gives the same good results.
Twisting also reduces pain
When pulling a tick away, it causes pain in the skin and some pets to really dislike the treatment. But by twisting it away with a tick remover, which keeps the mouthpart in a firm grip, the removal will be painless and the pet usually do not even notice because the bite area is stunned by the tick.<
We hike every day, and my poor dog often picks up ticks. After struggling with picking them off with regular tweezers, we searched for a better tool. This is it! Simple to use, and gets the entire tick in one shot. I highly recommend this tool for ticks that have attached.
