We are considering purchasing the De-Ticker however what the confidence it will work as advertised. Sounds like a product I'm looking for.

I've done some hunting around the internet and unfortunately, the reports aren't great. By the sounds of it they are not too dissimilar to a pair of fine tine tweezers, so if you've already got some of those in your kit you might find them a little easier to use.
