Was giving a guy a haircut when I noticed that his left ear was severely burnt… I asked him why? Well he was in a hurry to get to work and was ironing his shirt and the phone rang not thinking he put the iron to his ear instead of the to answer it… Wow it must have really, but then I noticed his right ear was burnt also… again I asked what happened? He told me the guy called back!!!!
Place your right index finger on the back part of the screw, this will hold it in place while you are unscrewing the nut.
After you remove the nut, you will need to remove the tension plate. Set these two items in a safe place while you continue working with your shears.
Remove the cutting blade (with out the Swivel Thumb) keeping the screw in the blade with the swivel thumb.
Now how to put your shear back together as a left handed shear!
YOU HAVE NOW CONVERTED YOUR SHEAR FROM A RIGHT HANDED SHEAR TO A LEFT HANDED SHEAR!!!

- Remove the old glue that could be in the hole and around the edges. You can use a toothpick or pipe-cleaning tool to do this.
- Take the bumper that fits your shear and insert it into the hole.
- Attach a very small drop of Super Glue into the hole where the top of the bumper makes contact with the metal of the finger ring.
- Hold it in place until set.
- If you use the bumper with a tail, trim off the excess tail- otherwise skip this step.
- You are now all set to go back to work.
Proper lubrication keeps the metal parts that contact and slide against one another from wearing out prematurely while it gives the hair shear that smooth effortless feeling you liked so much when the shear was new. This is because lubrication reduces the friction and drag between the contacting surfaces. Lubrication also aids in preventing rust and corrosion of the metal. YOU DO NOT NEED TO LUBRICATE THE NEW RIDELESS BALL BEARING PIVOT HAIR SHEARS.
- Put a drop of light oil or silicone lubricant between the blades at the “ride” (the crescent shaped area behind the pivot screw near the handles) and wipe the excess off with a cloth.
- You may then wipe down the shear blades with the cloth (VERY CAREFULLY HAIR SHEARS ARE RAZOR SHARP!) to coat the blades with a thin film of lubricant.
- Do this at least once a week but preferably at the end of each day.
AN AEROSOL SILICONE LUBRICANT has the advantage of blowing out hair and debris from the pivot area of your hair shears as you spray it on.
Silicones are preferable to oils as hair does not stick to the dry silicone film as it does to oil.
Never cut anything other than hair. Especially do not cut the top off of perm bottles. Keep your shears put away safely when not in use. People who don’t have a clue as to how precious and expensive your shears are may use them to open packages, cut cardboard, trim their fingernails, accidentally drop them, etc.
