DIFFICULT TO OPEN AND CLOSE
from Baltimore, MD
Comments about Automatic Nail File:
I bought this item hoping to be able to groom my toy nails. First hurdle was to even open the case. It tells you in the little booklet (several times) in order to remove the battery cover to STRONGLY press on the sides of the cover. Because of my arthritic hands I was not able to do that. Living in a large apartment building I can always find someone to open things for me. This was not that easy. Took a young person about 15 minutes to get the cover off. Second hurdle. After inserting 2 AA batteries the cover would not close. Directions say to match up the arrows (almost impossible to see the arrows (one tiny one on each side of the case. My hands were really aching by this time and I was about to return the item. Finally, a click and the case was closed. Third hurdle. You must be very careful with this - I slipped off the nail on one toe and made a small cut on the skin of the toe. For a diabetic, that could be serious. Since I was able to get the battery cover on, I will not return the item; but, I caution anyone thinking about buying it. You must have strong fingers and hands or have a friend or neighbor who does.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This item is a little hard to hold in place. It wants to fly off to the side if not holding firmly. Seems to take a little time to actually file the nail. Regular fingernail file material or sandpaper like material would work better. I would recommend with a change in material. Otherwise it's a take a chance and make your own decision.
It should be AC not Battery. It stops spinning if you put any pressure on the spinning files. If it was AC, then it would probably have more spin to it.I was disappointed. It looked like it was the answer to my problem. I wanted to purchase the step up item at almost twice the money but your sales person stated that they had a lot of complaints about that one also.

ONLY LOOKS GOOD!
from Carmichael, CA
Couldn't get the cap off of it. The 2nd time I tried to use it, when I was trying to pull the cap off, the bottom part detached and the mechanics fell out. Tried to put it all back, but it now runs ALL THE TIME, even in the off position. I'm throwing it away.
