Skin hook is an important instrument for skin surgeries. There are situations, such as operating in a health camp or operating at a peripheral health center with a limited number of instruments, where skin hook is not available in the operation theater. We present an innovative design of skin hook, which can be prepared by surgeons in the operation theater with the help of readily available materials. The innovative skin hook is a simple, safe, and effective solution for performing skin surgeries in a limited-resource setup.
