 Parts of a pivot tube cutter; pivot system 

The pivot joint tube cutter uses a pivot mechanism to cut through the tubing. This is a spring-based mechanism whereby the user pushes down to open the tool so that the tube can be inserted. When this end is released, the spring closes the tool, pushing the blade through the tubing.

Once the pivot end of the cutter is released, the pressure should cause the blade to cut through the tubing. However, if it has not fully cut through, the user can push down on the handle press end to force the cut.
