Bite Tube Standard (hollow) - ARK

More detail onBite Tube Standard (hollow) - ARK
ARK's Bite Tube is a hollow chew tool with a different diameter on each end. Use it as a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew. It can also be used as an oral motor tool to work on jaw strength and stability.

The tube-like extension is perfect for individuals who want their chew tool to "collapse" more, whether as a sensory chew and/or in feeding therapy. As an oral motor tool, use it to practice biting/chewing skills without the risk of choking, to build jaw strength and stability, and to exercise the mouth muscles. Put pureed foods inside the tube for functional biting/chewing practice - when the individual bites down, they will be rewarded with a taste of food. The two different diameters allow you to work on varying jaw heights. Because the hollow tube provides less resistance than solid chews like the Grabber, this is a great "starter" chew tool for individuals with very limited jaw strength.

Like all ARK chews, the Bite Tube is available in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

  • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything) and/or those with limited jaw strength
  • XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
  • XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some chewability to it, but it's fairly pretty firm (although not as firm/tough as our solid chews)


  • Note: if you are looking for a long lasting chew tool for avid chewing, we recommend solid chews over hollow chews. Check out the Tetra-Bite for example

    MEGA Bite Saber® Chew Medium - ARK

    More detail onMEGA Bite Saber® Chew Medium - ARK
    ARK's MEGA Bite Saber® is very similar to the original and popular Bite Saber® necklace. What's the difference? The MEGA version is much bigger! Wider. Thicker. Longer.

    The classic/original Bite Saber® (sold separately) measures about 4" long, .4" in diameter on the blade end, and .5" in diameter on the handle end. The MEGA version sold here measures about 5.8" long, .45" in diameter on the blade end, and .55" in diameter on the handle end. The MEGA Bite Saber has about 2 times the weight/bulk of the original Bite Saber - great for stronger chewers and/or for individuals looking for something larger.

    ARK's MEGA Bite Saber® is a handheld chew and does not come on a cord by default, but it does have a hole on one end in case you'd like to add one. Optional breakaway cords can be purchased.

    Made in the USA, this chew tool is a safe outlet for anyone who needs to chew, and an effective way to help calm, self-regulate, and focus. It's long enough to reach the back molars for proprioceptive input to the jaw and masseter muscle.

    Like all other ARK chews, it comes in 3 colour-coded toughness levels:

  • Standard - This is the softest level, recommended for mild chewers (those who do not chew through anything)
  • XT / Medium Firm - This is the middle level, which we call XT ("Xtra Tough"). It's firmer, but still fairly chewy, recommended for moderate chewers
  • XXT / Very Firm - This is the toughest level, which we call XXT ("Xtra Xtra Tough"). It still has some chewability to it, but it's fairly rigid / pretty firm. No chew tool is indestructible, but this is usually the longest lasting level for avid chewers
