The Laser-Guided Scissors are...well...a pair of laser-guided scissors!!!

Actually, what they are is a large pair of scissors with a built-in laser line generator that allows you to see exactly where you're cutting - *BEFORE* that cut is actually made.

The scissors can be used either with or without the laser, so you need not be *THAT* concerned if you need to snip off something and the laser has dead batteries in it.

The packaging materials indicate that they are useful for the following:

To use the Laser-Guided Scissors, there are two ways actually.

1 (normal scissors): Use them as you might use an ordinary pair of scissors. This specific unit is designed for right-handed users; I do not know if a southpaw (left-handed) version is available or not.

2 (laser-guided mode): First thing you'll want to do is gently pull out and dispose of that transparent plastic tab protruding from the side of the battery compartment. This is an insulater designed to prevent unwanted activation and subsequent discharge of the batteries while the product is in storage, transport, or sales display. You don't want baby scorpions, Goliath beetle grubs (larvae), or cabbage butterfly larvae (caterpillars)...I mean dead batteries!!!

As you're holding the scissors for cutting, look for a black button on the right side of the unit in front of where your thumb goes in. Press & release it to activate the laser guide.

See the two standard screw heads inside of those two circular things near the top?
Use a small standard screwdriver to turn these screws to adjust the aim of the laser beam. Once the laser line has lined up with the blade of the scissors, you're good to go.

Lay the material (paper, fabric, or whatever else it is that you're cutting) flat on your work surface. Make a mark on the opposite side (where you want the cut to end). Rest the bottom blade of the scissors on the work surface and align the laser line with the mark you just made. Carefully cut while keeping the laser line aligned with that mark.

Scissors being shown cutting their own packaging materials.

When you're finished, press & release that black button you turned the laser on with to deactivate it.

To change the batteries, look for a dome with a cross on it on the right-hand side of the scissors' body. Turn it counterclockwise approximately ž of a turn, and *GENTLY* lift it out of the way. It will remain attached by a short black wire; if you reef on it too hard, the wire will become broken and the laser will no longer function.

Tip the two used LR44 button cells out of the chamber and into your hand, and dispose of or recycle them as you see fit.

Insert two new LR44 button cells into the compartment, orienting them so that their flat-ends (+) positives go in first.

Place that dome back on, and give it a firm but gentle ž twist clockwise.
There, you're done.
No, really, you are.

Current usage measures 16.070mA on my DMM's 40mA scale.

The Laser Guided Scissors are a relatively delicate instrument designed to be used as a pair of household/sewing scissors with a laser-assist device built in, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around, thrashed, trashed, and abused. They were also a birthday gift from my two best friends. So I won't hit them against the concrete floor of a porch, try to drown them in a toilet, stomp on them, throw them against a wall, throw them at a wall-mounted porcelain urinator to see if they explode (the scissors, not the urinator), let my mother's big dog's ghost or my sister's kitty cats spring a leak (uranate) on them, hose them down with a gun, run over them with a 450lb Celebrity motorised wheelchair, stomp on them, use a medium ball peen hammer in order to bash them open to check them for candiosity, fire them from the cannoņata, drop them down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central {aka. "Party Central"}), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island), send them to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or perform other indecencies on them that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the Laser Guided Scissors' web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Product was given to me as a birthday present by my two best friends P.B. and P.D. in Seattle WA. USA on 09-26-09. Because they were a gift, their listings on this website will be appended with the "" icon, and the product will therefore be spared the more abusive tests.

UPDATE: 09-29-09
I forgot to add that these scissors are RoHS-compliant ("RoHS" stands for "Restriction of Hazardous Substances") -- that is -- they contain no heavy metals like cadmium, mercury, or lead that might otherwise queer the landfill when they're disposed of...which appears will be a rather long ways "down the road" as it were. These scissors feel rather sturdy (not cheap & flimsy), and should last quite a long time (many years perhaps).

Really nifty product
