JM Snake Handler Tong



Introducing the newest edition to the Johan Marais range of snake tongs – the JM Snake Handler Tong has been designed with the serious snake remover in mind.
Shorter than our 1 m tongs to enable the snake remover to neck the snake comfortably.

Based on our best selling PRO series, the JM tongs come with a few important modifications, which have been 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.

Durable and very good quality – comes with a guarantee.
