I de-accessed a port this morning. I flushed x 2, firmly pulled straight out and no problem, no rebound stick. But am very curious about this huber....
This particular huber looked different from any I've ever seen. The best way I can describe it was that it looked as though it was encased in a clear plastic box about 1" long and 1/2 wide and had a while plastic base that stuck to the patients skin. Is this a Safety Loc Huber? Could I have done something to it before pulling it? It looked as though there was a little lever on the front. I pulled the lever and nothing happened. Is this box just to get a better grip or does it do something clever? Thanks.

I get invalid file clicking either link. I'll try googling these devices and get back, Thanks.
It's not this one:
Nor this one:
I'm wondering what the heck it is? I've tried googling safety hubers also and no luck.
