Finger Ring Inserts

Another aspect of a stylist's shears, which should be sized correctly are the finger rings. When a shear is made, the manufacturer selects a size for the finger rings - or, often, a different size for each finger ring. Generally speaking, since the manufacturer wants to sell as many shears as possible, they will select a finger ring size which is too large for most stylists, and then enclose separate plastic or rubber finger ring inserts with the new shears to make the rings smaller.

For the stylist to get the right "fit" with their shears, these finger ring inserts should: 

1. Fit snugly inside the shear's finger rings so they do not pop out when the stylist pulls their fingers out of the rings.

2. Allow the stylist to comfortably slide their finger into and out of the ring comfortably

3. Not fit so tightly on the finger that the insert binds against the skin

These finger ring inserts should be enclosed with your new shears. If the inserts provided to not allow the stylist to achieve the correct sizing, the manufacturer should be able to provide you with additional ring inserts. Often your shear sharpening service may also have ring inserts available for sale, or a quick Google search (https://www.google.com/search?q=finger+ring+inserts+for+shears&oq=finger+ring+insert&aqs=chrome.2.69i57j0l4.8956j0j4&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8) leads you to an almost infinite selection of inserts.
