Used this on my 10 yr old grandson. Hook was a treble, past the barb , in middle finger. Pulled it out with no pain. He didn't even know when it was out.

A must for your tackle box or boat
I bought three of these kits about a year ago after having a treble hook in the thumb requiring a trip to the ER. I give one to my brother, placed one in my boat and one in my tackle box. I read the instructions at the time I received them and was more than a little skeptical; it sounded much to easy.
Then this last weekend fishing with my brother and a friend, a walleye my friend caught got loose from him, flopped around in the back of the boat and my friend got one hook of a treble buried in his leg. Not pretty. He got the fish off the lure. Then we cut the split ring holding the hook to take the weight of the lure off the hook. I remembered to leave the hook intact to use this kit. He assumed we were going to have to bring him to the hospital.
My brother broke out his kit and I read over the instructions twice and then gave it a try. It took about 30 seconds of prep work and a then at the final step the hook flew out into the lake. My friend swears the removal didn't hurt any worse then having the hook there in the first place! Talk about three happy fishermen.

saved the trip!
have had this kit in my tackle box for 7 years. last week a buddy buried one tine of a treble hook way past the barb. I followed the directions, got it in the spot and a quick yank - hook out!
kit had iodine swab and bandaids. no blood, no missing chunk of skin. Best $8.99 I ever spent! Buddy agrees. Lots cheaper than the ER in Othello, WA.
