The ASI JM 180 Snake Tong is ideal for removing snakes from hard-to-reach places, like trees or thatched roofs. The extra 74 cm (compared with the PRO 100) keeps the snake further away from the handler and is thus far safer.
Based on our best selling PRO series, the JM tongs come with a few important modifications, which have been extensively tried and tested. We have extended the upper jaw of the JM tongs so that the overbite extends 3.4 cm and the tongs work far better because of this. (in most snake tongs the overbite only extends around 1.5 cm – or less in the cheap Chinese imports)
We’ve also decreased the gap between the upper and lower parts of the jaw when the tongs are closed – this should be no larger than 1 – 2 mm.
In other words the two sections should nearly touch. Otherwise the snake is easily pinched and it is impossible to catch smallish snakes.
We’ve also added a double crimp to the steel cable.
Available in various colours.
All JM Snake tongs come with a guarantee.
