Proper adjustment of the tension between the blades is necessary for optimum performance.
If after being fully opened and allowed to fall closed, the blades fall completely closed on their own the tension is too loose and bend the hair instead of cutting it. Properly adjusted blades should catch between 2/3 closed and right before closing.
Regularly clean shears to keep them free of hair debris and product residue.
We recommend using rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to carefully clean the blades.
After cleaning, place a few drops of shears oil near the pivot point and open and close the shears. Leave overnight.
When replacing clipper blades, align bottom blade with the top blade. Points of the top blade teeth should be around 1/16” (about the width of a dime) back and parallel to the points of the bottom blade teeth. This is important so the clipper doesn’t snag skin.
The extreme left hand tooth of the top blade should be on the first small tooth of the bottom blade.
