This interesting little gadget performs an amazing function -- it allows you to operate your nippers with one hand. It attaches to the top of the nippers (see photo) and creates a spring-action. A very handy accessory, especially for anyone having trouble using both hands to operate their nippers.
The diagram below shows how the spring is attached to the nipper. Instructions are also included with each spring. The spring fits most nipper styles (including ours, of course!)
The manufacturer warns that the nipper spring is addictive! Originally designed for occasional use by professionals, it has been found that many professional trimmers like it so much that they use it all the time. With such frequent use over many horses, it may wear out in time and need to be replaced. A small price to pay for a great labor-saving device!
