Tick Twister was invented and designed by a French veterinarian in the 1990's in two sizes, one for removing very small and small ticks and one for removing medium and large ticks. They are made of injected plastic (polyoxymethylene=POM). This polymer plastic was chosen because it is recyclable, can be incinerated without pollution (no chlorine fumes during combustion) and for its solidity and resistance to ether and most solvents. Tick Twister can be disinfected with regular disinfectants. The smart and safe way to remove ticks from people and pets. If you live, work or play in any area where ticks live, you could be at risk for contracting diseases such as Lyme Disease. Cases of Lyme disease have been reported by nearly every state in the United States. Hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, playing outdoor sports, and gardening could bring you, your family and/or your pets in contact with ticks

How does this not just twist the tick's head right off?
The design of the remover is to get under the tick so when you turn it the tick comes out whole, much the same way a screw would be removed from wood. It's a great tool.
Does this come with a small and a large remover like the image pictured?
Yes, it comes with a larger one for wood tics and a smaller one for deer tics. Both work great.
Twist clockwise or counter-clockwise? or doesn't matter?
It doesn't matter.
