So close... Bought these after being unhappy with homemade folding tongs for camping. Would like them better if the handle was extended another 1.5 to 2 inches (there is room without increasing folded product length). Would also suggest removing slit from one side to make it double as a spoon. Lock mechanism seems to work well.
These tongs are well-made and inexpensive, but I was a little disappointed. I hoped to use them as crab tongs but they do not work well for that. The jaws just do not grip crabs at all. I will glue some emery cloth to the jaws to see if that solves the problem.
