The BD Safe-Clip™ Needle Clipping & Storage Device removes insulin syringe needles and pen needles safely and easily.
This portable device holds up to 1,500 clipped needles, approximately a 2-year supply. (may vary)
The BD Safe-Clip™ Device makes the syringe unusable by clipping off the needle.
After the device clips the needle from the syringe the needle is automatically and safely retained within the clipper. Do not clip if this is not your own syringe.
The device can be used with 28G through 31G needles and 3/16" (5mm) through ½" (12.7mm) length needles.
Not intended for use with lancets.
Always follow your local regulations for safe disposal of used sharps.
NOTE: To ensure maximum safety, you should never use a syringe or pen needle more than once. For more detailed information on the safe and proper disposal of needles and other sharps
More than a billion syringes, needles, and lancets are used for diabetes care in the United States each year. If they are not disposed of properly, these items - known as "sharps" - can injure other people.
The rules and regulations regarding sharps disposal are different in towns and counties around the country, so check with your local sanitation or health department.
If your community does not have specific disposal rules, follow these guidelines:
- Never throw loose sharps into the trash, whether at home or away from home.
- Never flush sharps down the toilet.
- Remove needles from syringes and pen needle units using a BD Safe-Clip™ clipper device and put the rest of the syringe or pen needle in your BD™ Home Sharps Container. Don't try to recap or clip a needle that has been used by another person. This can lead to accidental needle sticks, which may cause serious infections. Don't attempt to remove the needle without the BD Safe-Clip™ clipper device because the needles could fall, fly off, or get lost and injure someone.
- Put your used syringes, pen needles, and lancets in a sharps container.
- When the BD Safe-Clip™ clipper device or BD™ Home Sharps Container is full, seal it and check with your community how to dispose of it properly. Do not put it in your recycling bin - because syringes, pen needles, and lancets are not recyclable.
