[IP] IP: Small Lancet Devices



I just received two small lancet devices... or pokers and stabbers as some of 
you refer to them.  They both are much smaller than any I had ever seen (even 
the flat grey one that came with the fast take I think).  In case anyone is 
still searching for one to use with a small carrying kit, I thought I'd 
report on them.

Qwik-LET Jr. is about 2 inches long and traingular shaped around with a 
diameter of about .75 inches.  It features a cocking mechanism and a lancet 
extractor built in to the cover part.  The trigger button is on the bottom of 
the poker in the center of the cocking mechanism.  It cost about $10.

Auto-let Jr. is about the same size but does not have a cocking mechanism 
which means that you must take the lid off and manually cock it each time. (I 
guess they don't believe that anyone would really use a lancet more than 
once... haha)  The trigger is also on the bottom of the device.  This one 
cost about $7 for two. 

You can find both pokers at diabetic.com.  My only problem with that 
site/store was that it took them about 4 weeks to get my entire order to me.  
They promised me that it was a one time back-order problem and that as a rule 
they get orders out within 7 days.  I have decided to use the Qwik -LET Jr. 
with my new BLUE Precision QID that all fits very nicely (along with foil 
wrapped strips) in a tiny leather zip pouch.  It has come in very handy this 
past week when I didn't want to carry anything with me, I just grabbed the 
pouch, put it in my pocket and went.
