This is the dumbest “repair guide” I have ever seen. It is not a repair, because they are not broken, it’s a re-assembly.

Thank you so much!!!! I could only find one pair in my house and was feeling desperate. This is the best guide to repair and I’m glad you posted under broken nail clippers because that’s what I considered mine to be and how I looked it up.
