SoloComb Mane Comb Standard is an essential grooming accessory that helps keep horse's mane and tail tidy. It is a high-impact, lightweight plastic comb that works as great as a conventional pulling comb. It helps create a natural look instantly without the tedious job of pulling and the pain that comes with it. This comb is very easy to use -- simply backcomb the hair as usual then press the lever instead of pulling the hair. Works great on whiskers and dogs too!
Start with a clean, tangle free mane and tail. It is recommended that you start at the withers and work your way up the mane. Then prepare the mane as you would with a pulling comb.
Backcomb into the mane the holding the hair (under tension) with one hand, comb in the other and push top hairs back until the desired amount of under hairs to be removed is in the teeth of the comb.
At this point DO NOT PULL THE COMB DOWN; raise the hair held in your hand up into the blades so that the hair is under tension. Then press the lever down on the handle and the hair will be clipped. (For medium/thick manes go closer to the roots).
Comb out the tangles for the next cut. When the desired length is reached you may want to pinch or nip off ends of the hairs with your fingers to complete the look.
Cleaning the comb:
Remove the two fixing screws and lift off the blade cover.
Remove the blade fixing.
Lift blades off the mounting pins and clean off debris.
