This proprietary safety device offers 'tip protection' for vascular access and biopsy needle products. The "TipTrap" is an easy to use, low cost, transferable OEM safety device that has been proven effective on most other needle designs and works with various needle lengths. Once activated the "TipTrap" will slide to the end of the needle and lock. The needle tip is then safely trapped and protected against needle sticks. Needle disposal remains unchanged.
