Help Patients Get a Grip on their Hearing Aids

SLC-1We all have a few hearing instrument wearing patients who could use a little assistance with hearing instrument insertion. The Gator Grip is a new hearing aid insertion tool that makes it easier and faster for BTE, RIC, and open fit users to properly insert their hearing instruments into the ear. In addition, the Gator Grip can be used to hold the hearing aid receiver during cleaning procedures. The product is designed to securely grip the hearing instrument without damaging it, making it ideal for individuals with dexterity issues. A powerful magnet located on the end of the handle also helps with battery insertion and removal. The handle itself is hallowed and can be used to store  cleaning accessories by simply removing the cap. The Gator Grip (item# SLC-1) comes packaged with a long handle (5″ in length), a travel-sized short handle (3.75″ in length) with a black carrying pouch and instructions for use.  The long handle Gator Grip with black carrying pouch (item# LMB-1) may also be purchased separately. To order, contact customer service at Oaktree Products toll free 800.34.1960.

  1. Is there a video somewhere that shows how this works? Will I be able to see it at AAA? Thanks,

  2. AU,
    It’s always nice to see Oaktree present ways to resolve problems such as insertion and such. Well done.
