Snap On blade cleaning and maintenance


Clean Snap On blades when the cutting performance decreases or when, for example, hair gets between the blades and the shaving head plucks.

Blade care Snap On blade

Maintenance and care of A5 (Snap On or Clip) blades

  1. To do this, push the blade more than halfway to one side and clean the gap thoroughly with the cleaning brush.
  2. Then slide the blade to the other side and repeat the process.
  3. Push the blade back and oil the shaving head.

Thorough cleaning

If the blade still does not cut after simple maintenance, there is a hair between the precision blades exactly in the middle, please remove the blade completely by pushing it all the way out. Clean the plates thoroughly with a soft cloth (toilet paper is best) and replace the blade (follow the instructions for blade replacement).

Shearing blade guide and blade replacement

When you change the blades (possible in ceramic or steel for GogiPet blades) or replace the blade guide (white here, but can also be black or grey depending on the manufacturer).

  1. Slide the blade completely out of the clamp.
  2. Replace the (plastic) blade guide and/or the replacement blade.

To replace the blade, lift the clamp slightly with a flat screwdriver. (Do not overstretch when lifting slightly).

Replacing the blade, inserting the blade for shaving heads

Just high enough for you to push the blade back in.

Insert blade with A5 shaving heads

Insert the blade approximately in the middle and oil the shaving head

Important note!

Never open the screws on the front of the blade, you will adjust the plate pressure and render the clipper head unusable.

Oil Snap On blades every 5-10 minutes to avoid overheating, especially with newer clippers with a faster stroke rate, blades heat up very quickly.

Extra cooling and oiling sprays specially developed for blades are recommended, as you can continue working immediately without having to wipe off the oil.
