Whether you use electric clippers to cut hair or shave your pet’s fur, you will eventually have to perform maintenance on your blades. Attaching a new set of blades is a simple process that can make a significant difference in the quality of your cuts.

Things You'll Need

Use a screwdriver to remove the two screws that are located on the back of the blade.

Remove the old blade from the clippers. Push the thumb-release located at the bottom of the blade to release it.

Hold the teeth of the blade and slide it off of the clippers to expose the blade hinge.

Turn the clippers on at a low speed. While the clippers are on, slide the new blade onto the hinge until you hear it lock into place.

Insert the screws on the back of the blade. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver to ensure that the blade is secure.
