Then I read a review here and learned that you MUST hold the tool with the "OPEN" arrows pointing toward each other. If you pick up the tool with its "backside" up, the handles will unlock constantly.
MAY I ADD - this tip works only for right-handed people. If you are left-handed, you must NOT hold the tool with the "OPEN" arrows pointing at each other - flip it over. I read the post that said how to hold the tool -- the way it described did not work for me, indeed, the handles unlocked at every stroke. So, on a hunch, I flipped the lopper over and found out how to use it successfully.
I'm giving this tool ONE STAR because a) this is very bad design, b) the trick should not be kept a secret, but should be in the instructions, and c) yet another tool that is more difficult for left-handed people to use safely.
I figured I'd destroy my first set of Loppers before I finished my first phase cleanup so I went for budget expense and prayed they made it to the finish line
I proceeded to put a couple years worth of daily hard core use on these in the month that I have owned them on thumb sized and better limbs, vines and branches both live and dead against recommendations and basically ignoring the suggested cut size stretching the limit of it's maximum cut way more than once. I've dug them in the dirt cutting, I've flexed the handles 10 degrees at least cutting branches well over spec and made no effort at all to be nice to them as I used them.
In short I not only tried to break them I tried really really hard to do it and failed miserably. Durable, hold their edge well, light but sturdy, do the job and then some on a wide variety of trees, shrubs and ornamentals and makes a nice, precise cut. So far all I've done is oil them after use and touch up it's edge a couple of times and they work as well today as they did the day I got them. What I expected to get limited use and life from initially I now expect to outlive me.
Simply a wonderful tool that I can't recommend highly enough.
Additionally, power transfer is extremely poor even with handles at shortest length. 1" branches are a hassle.
ADDITIONALLY, the handles rotate while in use (even with both at minimum length- not extended) and releasing the locking mechanism, making for terrible control and a much more difficult cut even at just 1".
Regret, I have it.
I have another pair of fiskars bypass loppers that are well over 8 years old now. It is still fantastic, though the metal loss from sharpening and removing knicks and burs over the years has worn the cutting edges. Quality has dipped, and I won't be bothering with Fiskars anymore. Live, lose and learn.

Da ich mit Fiskars bereits gute Erfahrungen hatte, habe ich gezielt nach einem entsprechenden Produkt dieses Herstellers gesucht. Voraussetzung war, daß der Schneidkopf dem einer Rosenschere nahekommt, damit man im Rosendickicht gezielt schneiden kann.
Diese Anforderung wurde vollständig erfüllt: Die Schere ist gut handhabbar, die Griffe müssen nicht über Gebühr gespreizt werden um den Ast fassen zu können und der Schnitt ist sauber und glatt. Das Gewicht ist ebenfalls sehr nutzerfreundlich.
Ich habe mich auch anderswo nach eben dieser Schere umgesehen, bin aber nicht fündig geworden. Offenbar wird diese Schere in Deutschland nicht (mehr?) angeboten. Also habe ich die etwas höheren Versandkosten und die längere Versandzeit (8 Tage) in Kauf genommen. Für knapp EUR 27 (an der Kasse den Versand zu EUR 7,88 ausgewählt) eine tolle Schere!
PS: Auf amazon.com gibt es viele Bewertungen zu dieser Astschere.
If you need the length and only have a couple of branches to trim then its probably OK but if you have several branches to cut requiring any mobility to access then consider other alternatives.
Sharp and snips through 2 inch - 3 inch living tree branches (with some improv through the thick ones 🧐😁).
After a tough workout, there is no bending or broken parts. The handle extensions also work perfect and lock well in place when extended, really NOTHING bad to say about this handy tool 🎉!
