Medical Tweezers

These light weight ABS plastic tweezers could be used in space for medical reasons such as splinters and personal hygiene. The ABS plastic is light weight, decreasing the cost to transport it to space. The top part of the tweezers is able to move into two clips that would hold the tweezers closed. When the two clips slide past each other they lock in place. The point can be readjusted to stay flat and stationary. The tweezers are small in order to conserve space and can be produced on the spacecraft itself with the 3-D printer.
