How SafeSnap Works


Our traditional technology requires little or no additional training. With SafeSnap® it’s as simple as push, pull, snap seal.


As you inject, continue pressure until the plunger locks with the needle and its carrier. Flip the red clip.


Retract the needle all the way into the barrel.


Break the plunger off.


Insert the plunger into the open end of the barrel until it locks.

Now you can simply dispose the used syringe in a red biohazard bag. Because SafeSnap becomes its own sharps container there is no need to dispose of a used SafeSnap syringe into a sharps container, thereby reducing the amount of plastic going to land fills.
