The Original TickKey is a durable anodized aluminum tool designed to remove ticks from people or pets quickly and with ease. The device uses natural forward leverage to remove the entire tick safely and without touching it. Because there is no pinching, pulling, or prodding, people and pets are able to remain comfortable during the process. The device works on all sizes and types of ticks. It can be attached to a key ring for easy access at any time. Price is $9.99.
Designed for durability, SeaDek’s RV Step Treads provide traction to reduce the risk of slips and falls. The RV Step Treads are easy to clean and resistant to UV rays, water, and heat. You don’t need tools or hardware to install them, since the adhesive backing attaches the Step Treads to metal and most composite surfaces. The exterior texture repels dirt and grime and prevents stains, helping to keep your RV entryway clean. The Step Treads come in three design styles: tetrapod, embossed, and teak. Color options vary by design type. Prices start at $29.99 for a 24-inch-by-8.5-inch Step Tread.

Have you ever wanted to have hot or cold pressurized water on the go?

You simply pump it up to build pressure; rotate the nozzle cap to select mist, stream, or shower; and hold the trigger to continuously spray. This lid fits wide-mouth vacuum-insulated stainless-steel bottles, including those from Lunatec, Hydroflask, Takeya, and Thermoflask. A high-flow-rate attachment and a high-pressure attachment are also available. Price is $25.
