Use caution to prevent injuries or damage to other products while using the box cutter.
- Keep the Blade Sharp - A dull blade requires additional pressure to make the cut or may tear the cardboard. Stop and change the blade when needed. A dull blade cuts erratically and can easily slip off the cutting path, increasing chances for injury.
- Shorten the Blade - Most box cutters allow you to change the amount of blade that's exposed. By keeping it short, you'll reduce the risk of injury.
- Retract the Blade When Not in Use – Always keep the blade covered or retracted when not in use to prevent risk of injury.
- Angle the Blade Away From Your Body - When using a box cutter, angle the blade away from your body.
- Don’t Place Your Thumb Over the Box Cutter - Hold the box cutter by "gripping" it, wrapping your thumb around it instead of over it.
- Wear Gloves – It is always a good idea to wear gloves to prevent nicks and cuts.
- Only Use For Proper Purposes – Make sure the material is able to be cut without significant pressure or stress on the blade.
