stupid locking design

As with the previous reviewer, I found the locking mechanism a miserable nuisance: yes, it keeps the pruner from opening, but it also slips forward and prevents the pruner from closing. I didn't bother trying to return it - I simply removed the slider. All it needs is a little detent bump on the rail, to keep it from sliding forward when it's inverted, but honestly, a college grad with a degree in design engineering should have been able to figure that out after consulting somebody who had actually USED a pruner once or twice.

Pros: It has a pretty, purple handle. And oh, yes, it's nice and sharp.

Cons: A person should not have to modify a tool design just to use it as it was intended to be used.

Doesn't Work for Gardening

We bought this product in a combination package with some floral shears. Both have a locking mechanism - it's the orange rectangular part of in the upper part of the right handle. It's horribly designed. It slides forward to lock, but there's no resistance. If you pull it back to unlock, the shears cut. The second you point the shears down toward a plant, the locking mechanism slides forward, and immobilizes the shears. The only way to use these without manually holding the locking mechanism in place is to cut something that is at the same height or higher than your hand is. The worst part is that the store where we bought the shears won't even take them back because of a "no returns" policy we didn't realize applied to EVERYTHING in the store, not just plants.

Pros: The handles are nice.

Cons: As mentioned above, the locking mechanism does not stay in place. Everytime you point the shears downward, it also slips down, and locks the shears so you can't actually cut anything.
