    Pill Splitter

    h9991155.jpg

    There are many different kinds of pill splitters. Most work like this:

    1. Place the pill in the slot, and close the lid. A small blade precisely cuts the pill in half.
    2. Sweep the halves into the open box.
    3. Pick them up and store them in your normal container.
