CARE

Wipe the blades and pivot area of your JAGUAR shears daily. Then add a drop of JAGUAR cleaning oil to the pivot area to achieve an optimum cutting performance. Open and close the shears several times to spread the oil.
Ideal tension ensures smooth opening and closing and soft cutting. Your shears will cut effectively and comfortably at any desired position or angle, an the edge sharpness will be maximized.

HOW TO TEST THE RIGHT TENSION

The tension can be tested by opening and closing the shears carefully. When the tension is set properly, the blades of the shears should close gently, not fall shut, hardly any pressure is needed in cutting to close the shears.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE TENSION

All JAGUAR shears have patented set screw for fine adjustment of the tension. Please use the enclosed adjustment tool. Turn the screw clockwise to tighten the tension or counter-clockwise to loosen it. Then check again for correct tension.
