Retractable Safety Scalpel (10)

£6.67 ex VAT




Our wide range of disposable safety retractable blade scalpels provide protection to users at all times. Non-retractable scalpels leave blades exposed during use. However, a lot of retractable safety scalpels on the market simply lock the blade permanently once retracted, meaning the users cannot temporarily cover the needle during use. Users therefore often have to leave blades exposed until they have completed their procedure, meaning they are still a risk from a sharps injury. In addition, complex mechanisms often mean safety scalpels are not activated and blades are left exposed, causing further unnecessary injuries.

The SAFhandle™ disposable safety retractable scalpel incorporates an innovative safety mechanism that allow the users to easily move the blade back and forth into the scalpel casing during use thus minimising the exposure of users to the blade. Then, once the procedure is completed, the blade can easily be pulled completely back into the scalpel handle and permanently locked in.

For added safety, SAFhandle™ disposable safety retractable scalpels are fitted with SAFhandle™ round tip safety blades to provide protection even when scalpels are in use.

Step 1: For Use – Extend button fully forward in the direction of the arrows. The blade will be exposed and locked in the use position. Tactile sensation and audible sound confirm locking. Stability, security and control in use.


Step 2: To Pass – Retract button inside handle and sight notch with indicator line. The scalpel can now be safely passed and can be reused as needed. Minimised risk during passing and procedure.


Step 3: To Dispose – Retract button to the pass position. Then pull the button further back until a positive click is heard. The scalpel is now locked ready for disposal. Steadfast and audible disposal lock. Disposal status easy to verify on reverse side.
