Important product features:ﾠTungsten carbide inserts in jaws are harder than needle steel. Precision-milled inserts provide a nonslip grip. They have exceptional durability. The jaws of a TC needle holder can be replaced when worn. The jaws of regular stainless steel needle holder cannot be replaced; in many situations the TC Needleholder is therefore the more economical choice.ﾠ
Useful hints in usage:ﾠThey look similar to hemostats, but jaws are thicker and shorter. They are available in many styles and sizes. Shorter ones are used for working close to the surface. Longer ones are for deeper cavities. The smaller the needle, the smaller the jaws of the needle holder. If the needle is too large to be held securely, select a larger size needle holder. Otherwise, the needle may slip, or the needle holder may be overstressed, causing fatigue or breakage.
