How to use a trigger tube cutter
Step 1 - Turn off water
If cutting an existing water tubing system, make sure the water is turned off before you begin.
Step 2 - Insert tube
Place the tube in the tube rest, holding it steady with one hand.
Step 3 - Grip tool
Hold the tool with your fingers spread out over the front trigger handle with the back handle resting in your palm.
Step 4 - Make cut
Pull the trigger handle backwards with your fingers to push the blade through the tube. Do this carefully so that the tube warps as little as possible.
Step 5 - Retract blade
Once the cut has been made, release the trigger handle to retract the blade or press the quick release button on the back of the tool to retract it instantly.
