Thought this was rather interesting - looks like they are $5. I'm going to keep my eye out for one. I've never had a tick - but my brother's did every Summer when we were camping in the adirondacks. There a vid at the link that shows how easy it is. Heh - looks like they had several volunteers to get a tick to bite and then use the tick twister on them. Basically you slide the v-shaped tool around the tick and rotate.

my buddy Steff could have done with one of these a couple years ago.... he was with a crew of people putting on a free party (rave) on Dartmoor in SW England ; his role for the evening was searching the local area for wood to keep the fire going. As the sun came up he began to notice that he was absolutely covered in sheep ticks - friends took him to hospital to get them all off hygienically... they took over 120 of the little fuckers off him, surprised he had any blood left... oh and he was tripping on liquid acid throughout all this !
