How not to remove ticks
Don't remove a tick with your fingers!
Ticks often carry dangerous pathogens that can be easily transmitted to humans and animals. Tick saliva and blood are vectors for these diseases and direct contact should be avoided when possible.
Don’t remove a tick with tweezers!
Pulling on an attached tick can result in amputation and leave its mandibles embedded in its host’s flesh. If accidentally crushed, the tick’s blood may enter the bite and further increase the risk of infection.
Don't try to kill a tick!
Traditional tick removal methods like the application of petroleum jelly, nail polish remover, or a lit match run a serious risk of agitating the tick. When agitated, attached ticks almost always regurgitate the contents of their stomach back into their host, significantly increasing the risk of infection.
Remove ticks in seconds!
Center key slot over tick.
Apply pressure and slide key away from tick.
Continue pulling key and tick until removed. Ta-da!
The Original Tick Key is a Connecticut, USA-made tick removal device that is highly effective in removing ticks of all sizes and types. After launching our product in 2007 and presenting it at SuperZoo in 2009, Tick Key Products, LLC was formally established the following year. Since then we have made a significant impact with several tick-borne public health organizations, and our product is now sold in numerous retail establishments throughout the USA and in 18 different countries.
When we first set out to create this innovative tick remover tool, we were adamant about finding a balance between modest design and solid, reliable construction. Rather than using flimsy plastic material, the Original Tick Key is built using durable anodized aluminum and is strong enough to quickly remove ticks with ease. The simplicity of the design prevents disease from spreading during removal, and because there is no pinching, pulling or prodding, the urge to squirm is eliminated. Both people and pets can remain calm and comfortable until the tick is safely removed.
