I love everything about my experience with Grommet and Uncle Bills Sliver Grippers. I love both of them. Great and fast service from Bills. Love love love the product. Also love the Grommet. Need I say more?? No, I don’t think so. Thank you Uncle Bill.


Everyone should keep these close

Easily slips into a pocket or purse, one should also be kept in your car. I used these as a stocking stuffer for my spouse, each of my children , children-in-law, mother-in- law and teenage grandchildren - so yes I think everyone needs one.

I'm in construction and get slivers all the time, had it for a couple of weeks I used it once and was borrowed twice. You should be getting a couple of orders soon...
Thank you very much

I have had these in our household for at least 30 years and they are the best tweezers out there, bar none! We have them at work, at home, in the car, and in my pocket, just in case. They are the go-to item in our arsenal of first aid tools!

These are the BEST tweezers you will ever use. Keep one in glove compartment, purse, first aid kit, sewing box, tackle box, toolbox, every bathroom, make up bag, you name it.


Ultimate Splinter Remover

As someone who works with trees for a living splinters are a part of my everyday life. I've tried several different types/brands of tweezers but these by far are my favorite. MADE IN THE USA too which is also nice, would recommend to anyone.


The best tweezer!!

I used to work at a cactus nursery. The owner bought these for everyone. These tweezers are excellent so I bought extras so I'll have one wherever I need them. Uncle Bill's are the best!

My sister got a tiny, tiny sliver of a splinter. We could hardly see it. Uncle Bill's Gripper grabbed it on the first try and pulled it right out. A really great product!

The Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers Story

Uncle Bill's Sliver Gripper Precision Tweezer

Get A Grip

Good tweezers are a dime a dozen but a great pair of tweezers is hard to find. Mary Ann McCormick from Lark Fine Food (we featured her gourmet cookies just last month) said these were the best tweezers she has ever owned. After using them to extract a very stubborn sliver that other tweezers couldn’t grip, we have to agree.

So what makes Uncle Bill’s Sliver Gripper so special? Unlike conventional tweezers that are made by spot-welding two pieces of metal together, the Sliver Gripper is crafted from a single piece of spring-tempered stainless steel. The pointed tip is honed by hand so it’s
unbelievably precise. The inventor, Uncle Bill, created the tweezers in his basement workshop. Today they’re manufactured in West Hartford, Conn., by a company that kept the Uncle Bill name to pay homage to his big little invention. One of Uncle Bill’s largest customers is the U.S. military — soldiers keep a pair with their dog tags. If the Sliver Gripper is good enough for use in the trenches, then you know it’s something you need to have in your first-aid kit… and in your makeup case, sewing bag and toolbox. Read More Read Less
