- After each haircut, clean off any excess hair from your shear.
- Daily, add a few drops of oil to the inner pivot area and then open and close the shear several times. This will help clean excess debris from the pivot area, then carefully wipe away the excess oil and debris.
- To check the tension adjustment, hold the thumb side of the shear in one hand, lift the finger side with the other until the blades are fully open, then let go. The blades should stay open. If the blade closes partially, tighten the screw one click at a time, until you find the minimum tension to keep them open. If too tight, turn the screw or tension knob counter-clockwise, one click at a time.
- Our Blending Shears require the enclosed shear key to adjust the tension, 1 or 2 clicks clockwise to tighten, counter-clockwise to loosen.
Remember to check the tension every few days just to make sure you are keeping them properly adjusted.
