Best-selling products

  1. Snake Tongs (JM150)
  2. 1.2m Collapsible Snake Hook

The JM150 Snake Tong is the newest addition to their extensive range of quality snake tongs. The 1.5 m tongs are by far our most popular snake tong for both discerning corporate and private clients. This tong is ideal for removing large problem snakes, especially on mines, game farms and game lodges. The extra 50 cm (compared with the JM100) keeps the snake further away from the handler and is thus far safer and easier to use. This is the preferred tool for beginner or novice snake catchers.

The ASI Collapsible Snake Hook 1.2 m is made from industrial aluminium and tested to lift up to 4 kg. It has a stainless steel hook and measures 72 centimetres when collapsed and 123 centimetres when extended. This is an essential tool for the use of proper snake handling
