Q:are these good snips for cutting Gutterguard by Gutterglove?
by|Jan 11, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  It should be adequate for the occasional cutting (4 or less). However, since Gutterguard is stainless, it would be advisable to utilize a heavier/larger pair of metal shears or a cut-off saw for four or more cuttings.

    great snips
    Very well built and sturdy. Needed these to clip some gutters to size and they made short work of the aluminum. Cut through it with ease. I like that there’s a latch on the back to keep them closed and locked when not in use

        What Happened???
        Been using this snips for 15+ yrs never had an issue. Got a brand new set and broke the first day. First the center bolt was loose. Then the casting broke. Everyone on the job had the same thing happen.

          Broke immediately
          These broke when I used them to cut aluminum tile edging trim. Snapped on the first cut.

            Does Exactly What I Need
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] of your metal cutting projects. The soft and easy grip handles are made for comfort and long life. The grips are yellow, for easy identification and have a loop built in if you need to keep them secure. The grips have an off set stop position for a secure and comfort cutting action. The Snips can be easily used in your right or left hand. Smaller hands might find these a little harder to use.The release is better suited for right hand use but not impossible for the left hand. The jaws have a 1.5" cutting depth with a single cut. I have found that thin sheet metal doesn't distort with a maximum straight cut. The cutting blades are serrated that spreads the cutting force across jaws improving cut quality and tool life. All of the assembly nuts are machine pinned to allow tight and accurate blade movement with becoming loose over the life of the tool.

              Comfortable to grip
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this a few weeks ago and find it easy to use and comfortable to grip. Straight cuts are straight, cutting large circles was easy. I put it to work the day I received it using it all day without fatigue. Was very useful in the installation of a hot air furnace using old parts and pieces.P.S. I am a retired Millwright by trade.

                Quality feel
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These snips feel far superior to a competitors that I currently own. The grips are also move fitting and comfortable in the hand than competitors I’ve used in the past. They are super sharp and cut very clean. One thing I’m curious to see is how long the lock lasts I know most snips are prone to them breaking

                  cutting blade snapped after the second cut
                  I have an old pair of WISS snips that I’ve had for years and they worked great, they were getting a little doll so I decided to buy a new pair unfortunately the new ones are garbage. I was cutting some 20 gauge galvanized sheet metal and after making two cuts the cutting blade snapped broke right off.

                    Unfortunately, it did not do the job I bought it to do. But, it was useful on another project and easy to use. Good for rewiring, but not for thicker wire that I wanted to cut.
