How do I attach/detach an attachment of my Philips Groomer?
Click-on cutting element
To remove the cutting unit from the body of your groomer, check if there is a release button on the body of your groomer. If so, press the button to detach the unit.
If the groomer does not have a release button, then place a finger under the teeth of the cutting unit and pull it upwards to take it off. To reattach the cutting element, ensure that it is properly aligned and insert its bottom part into the body of the groomer. Next, slowly push the part with the teeth forwards until you hear a click. Do not force the attachment in, as this may damage the device.
If you are having difficulty attaching it, check if there is something stuck inside the body, and try cleaning it with a small brush or cotton swab.
Cutting units with legs
Watch the video below to see how to use our latest Philips Beard Trimmer Prestige with unique built-in and click-on combs. Keep in mind that depending on the model type, the features on the shaver will vary.
To detach the comb from the cutting element, carefully push up the base of the comb from the device and then slide it off the cutting element.
Combs with legs
Removing these types of combs is easy. Just pull them off the body of your groomer. To attach the comb, gently slide it down on top of your cutting element so that the legs fit in the designated slots at the side.
Combs for Philips Kids' Hair Clippers
To attach this comb, make sure the side with the desired hair length is pointed upwards. Start by fitting one side of the comb into the clipper's body. Then push the other side in too and press to hear a click.
To remove the shaving foil, pull it off the shaver head. Be careful to hold the shaving foil by its edges, as the middle part can be very sharp. To reattach the shaving foil, snap it back onto the shaving head until you hear a click.
To minimise the wear of the foil, safely store your product and protect the foil from outside pressure or impacts by attaching a cap or comb. Replace the foil immediately when it is damaged, via our webshop or your local Consumer Care.
Body grooming combs
To attach this comb, snap it on to the shaving foil.
Keep in mind that the attachments may vary based on the model of trimmer or clipper you are using. Always check the user manual for detailed instructions or contact us.

Eyebrow and Detailer combs

Slide the detailer comb onto the front of the detailer trimmer head and push down the back until you hear a click (Image 2).
