How Do I Change the Drive Tips on My Wahl Power Grip, SS-Pro, X-Block, or Stable Pro Plus?

How to properly change the drive tips on the Wahl Power Grip, SS-Pro, X-Block, or Stable Pro Plus detachable blade clippers.

The drive tip in Wahl clippers move the cutter on the clipper's blade, which helps ensure a smooth and effective clipping experience. It is important you pay attention to your clipper's performance and how well your blades appear to be cutting. Through frequent use of your clipper, the drive tip will wear out and should be replaced as part of your clipper's regular maintenance. When you start to notice your blade is not cutting like it normally would (even with a new blade) or is pulling or dragging some of your pet's hair/ fur, it may be time to change your drive tip.
