The 46 inch Tomahawk Snake Hook is a tool that should only be used by trained snake handlers to restrain and keep the snake at a safe distance by gently restraining and lifting the snakes head. The Tomahawk Snake Hooks have a non slip comfort grip. Only experienced snake handlers should use snake hooks. Less experienced snake handlers should use Tomahawk Snake Tongs. Model 319
I had the opportunity to use this on a 5'+ Texas Rat Snake recently. It is light enough to be easily maneuvered at length, and strong enough to not flex. It was confidence inspiring to use this along with a set of snake tongs. I was able to move the snake to a safe place and release it unharmed. Now it can continue to do its job and I don't have to worry about it and the dogs getting tangled. I'd happily purchase another of these hooks if I needed it. Way better than a hoe.
