Gadgeteers, get out your charge card. This is an instrument you absolutely have to own. It reaches down below sofa cushions, inside piggy banks, into fish tanks, and past a gallbladder. Not simultaneously, of course. The slim stainless steel alligator forceps is 10-1/4" long OA, with a 3" angled handle and an 7-3/4" reach. It has small 3/4" long tapered serrated jaws that measure approx. 1/8" wide x 3/16" at the largest and open to a max width of approx 3/8" or 10mm, in a delicate but tight fashion at the tip! Better buy an extra. We guarantee people are going to "borrow" these if they see them.
