Nail clipper with pivoting retainer structure, improved handling and side cutting jaws

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5570509.

A nail clipper incorporating a pivoting retainer structure which pivots from a cylindrical member disposed in the rear of the nail clipper is disclosed. The pivoting retainer structure retains nail clippings and facilitates the emptying of these clippings. In a closed position, the pivoting retainer structure nests into the body of the nail clipper. In an open position, the pivoting retainer structure pivots out from its nested position allowing the nail clippings to be emptied. In accordance with the present invention, the nail clipper further incorporates an ergonomically advantageous shape and side cutting jaws which guarantee that a small, discrete portion of the nail will be cut with each action of the nail clipper.
