Corona® FlexDIAL® Adjustable Bypass Pruner Earns International Acclaim

(Corona, CA) When it comes to hand tools like pruners, one size does not fit all. A common mistake gardeners make when buying pruners, is to opt for the largest cutting capacity available, regardless of the size of their hands. Someone with smaller hands will find it uncomfortable, difficult and tiring to make pruning cuts with a pruner actually designed for larger hands because when the cutting blades are wide open, the spread of the handles is too big to handle, while those with larger hands may not take full advantage of their greater leverage. FlexDIAL lets gardeners select the right setting based on their hand size, from small to extra large. This innovative feature is why UK’s DIY Week Awards 2019 chose FlexDIAL, as a finalist in its “Garden Tool of the Year” Awards.
