An essential item for a tidy mane and tail. Create a natural look without the tedious job of pulling. High impact plastic comb is extremely lightweight and easy to use. Back comb the hair as usual and then instead of pulling the hair simply press the lever and the hair is instantly and painlessly clipped. It even works on the whiskers and is great for grooming dogs too! Has replaceable, precision engineered blades. Manufactured from polycarbonate.
Caution! DO NOT overload the comb with hair. Many small cuts will produce the best results and avoid damage to the precision engineered blades.
Start with a clean, tangle free mane and tail. It is recommended that you start at the withers and work your way up the mane. Then prepare the mane as you would with a pulling comb. Steps: 1. Back comb into the mane the holding the hair (under tension) with one hand, comb in the other and push top hairs back until the desired amount of under hairs to be removed is in the teeth of the comb. 2. At this point DO NOT PULL THE COMB DOWN; raise the hair held in your hand up into the blades so that the hair is under tension. Then press the lever down on the handle and the hair will be clipped. (For medium/thick manes go closer to the roots). 3. Comb out the tangles for the next cut. When the desired length is reached you may want to pinch or nip off ends of the hairs with your fingers to complete the look. Cleaning the comb: 1. Remove the two fixing screws and lift off the blade cover. 2. Remove the blade fixing. 3. Lift blades off the mounting pins and clean off debris. 4. Separate blades and rinse with water. 5. Dry with cloth and spray sparingly with WB40. To replace the blades: 1. Follow steps 1 & 2 under cleaning instructions. 2. Lift blades off mounting pins. 3. Insert new blades. 4. Replace blade fixing plate. 5. Replace blade cover and screws.
