From The Vault
The Forceps is a type of pre-war hand-held medical equipment used for grasping and holding items during surgery. This item is portable, can be placed on any flat surface, and is made of metal. This item is two pincers controlled by two finger-holds. Forceps are associated with other hand-held medical equipment on compartment trays and are often accompanying them. These items are used in the Vault-Tec Vaults. The Pip-Boy 3000A categorizes the forceps as a junk item.
The forceps in the Vaults are communally owned and were passed from one generation to the next. The expectation of Vault residents is that the forceps will be cleaned and maintained.
