Carabiner clip attaches to belt loop for easy access. Corrosion resistant, non-stick blade coating reduces friction to make cutting easier. Just like scissors, the lower loop handle provides the perfect balance of comfort and control.

FiberComp handle, reinforced fiberglass composite provides strength and durability while reducing weight. 5/8″ cutting capacity.

From the Manufacturer

Thanks to the spring-action carabiner built right into the loop handle, gardeners now have a powerful pruner that is always within easy reach. Designed to clip to a beltloop or tool tote, the carabiner is one-handed operation makes it easy to unsnap, snip and re-snap in a single fluid motion. Fiber comp construction makes the pruner rugged yet light, with a corrosion-resistant, non-stick bypass blade that powers through stems and twigs up to 5/8-Inch in diameter. Now that is accessible design!

Fiskars loop handle pruner ~ reviewed by Tyler J.

I like these. The loop handle grip, the catch for fastening them shut and the ability to easily fasten them to your belt make this a well designed tool that is pleasant to use.

SECOND THOUGHTS. This tool too often painfully pinches the fleshy part of the thumb. I came to dislike it.

Great for a Leftie! ~ reviewed by MMG

I’m a woman with medium size hands – I’m right handed.
It’s a bit big & I can’t lock & unlock the orange knob without using my other hand.
I believe if you were left handed you’d be able to the way the orange knob is designed.
It cuts hard wood like it says which I love! Great for old woody rosemary.


This pruner cuts pretty well but the big problem which we noticed is that it is so easy to painfully pinch your fingers when you are cutting. I was disappointed in this tool.

Surprisingly good nippers ~ reviewed by earnan

I bought a pair of these to clear the brush around my land. At first I noticed the handles flex a bit and worried the product might break but after a bit more use realized the handles flex to absorb the impact and cushion the grip. The carabiner is larger and easy to clip to mostly anything and helps keep the tool at hand. The locking mechanism is very durable and easy to operate with gloves on. I have second pair of ratcheting pruners and I prefer to use these more. I think their a good value and would recommend them.

Update. After a few months hard abuse I was able to break the handle off these nippers. Ooops. So I have now purchased a professional model from fiscars. It seems these are only good for “light duty”.

effective and so cute ~ reviewed by ConfusedKitten

I needed some pruners for a bit of yard work and the carabiner was such a cute added feature i could not resist. So far i took down a whole overgrown area of wild roses with them and they performed very well

Excellent tool ~ reviewed by Don Sproles

Well constructed, comfortable grip, clean cut. I do a lot of propagation (rooting cuttings) and a clean cut is important. This tool does the job. Not much else to add except if you are looking for a good tool, reasonably priced, this is it.

Fiskars 9111 Loop Handle Bypass Pruner with Carabiner Clip ~ reviewed by Tom Burke

We have several Fiskars products in our family and this item continued with the same excellent quality and design. We were very pleased with the purchase

Excellent Product ~ reviewed by Eric L. Jackson

I wanted a clipper that was easy to use on the hand; the gears provide significant mechanical advantage. It is a quality product.

Mine! ~ reviewed by Amazon Customer

In our household we have his tools and her tools. I found these Fiskars with the loop handle in his tools. After using them for a weekend I had to have my own pair. Not only are they great trimmers, but they are easy on the hands.

This is my second pair. ~ reviewed by B. A. Davis

Had a similar one for many years and somehow they got lost in the yard. Never found them. I missed them and just had to order a new set. I have roses and these little pruners are great for pruning the roses.Buy it at Amazon
