Zip Trim is a tool that will get rid of weeds and other debris on your lawn and around your house. Unlike most similar tools, it's compact, and when you don't use the extension pole, it'll fit in the palm of your hand. However, you'll be able to quickly attach the extension pole, if needed, in order to reach certain places. This device doesn't require electricity or gas to run, and can be carried from place to place in a large pocket, thereby freeing up your hands.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Attach Zip Ties
To begin using Zip Trim, you'll need to attach two standard-sized zip ties to the end of the device ( one on each side ). These will be what does the cutting for you once the trimmer is turned on. If you have ties that are longer than average, you can simply cut them down before or after attaching them to the device.
- Flip Switch and Get Started
Once the zip ties are attached and your fingers are far away from the end of the device, flip the black power switch found on its middle to turn it on. Then, you can get started trimming weeds and whatnot. At this point, if you'd like, you can screw your trimmer to the removable, lightweight extension pole. This may come in handy if you want to reach across something without moving, like patio stones, or reach up high.
How It Works
Each Zip Trim has all the power—generated by revolutions per minute ( RPM )—of a larger weed whacking device. The manufacturers of this device have just condensed this power down into a smaller system, making the device small enough to fit in your hand or pocket.
- Lightweight and Portable
The Zip Trim is so lightweight and portable that you'll be able to carry it with you virtually anywhere on your property, even with the extension pole attached. It won't take up much room in your vehicle, so if you want to bring it to the cottage, your workplace, or someone else's home, that won't be a problem, either.
- Comes With Zip Ties
Each tool comes with 24 zip ties that are already cut to the perfect size for use on this trimmer.
- Debris Shield
This device comes with a debris shield that will enhance its safety. You don't absolutely have to use it, but you may want to attach it on windy days or when cleaning up certain types of debris that you definitely don't want flying into your face.
Like any weed cutter, this trimmer will cut through ordinary weeds, but it's also strong enough to cut through wood. Therefore, if you've got wood branches growing out of the ground in places you don't want them, you can make short work of them with this tool.
- Reaches up High
With the removable extension pole attached, you'll be able to reach up high onto the walls of your home or large pieces of lawn furniture in order to remove debris from these places. Fortunately, since the pole is lightweight, your arms likely won't get extremely tired while you're doing so.
- No Gas, Electricity Required
Some larger weed cutters require gas or electricity to be run, but not the Zip Trim. In fact, it doesn't even require batteries. That means that you won't need to worry about going to the store to get batteries or gas, or dragging around a heavy and / or long extension cord when you want to trim weeds.
- Install Zip Ties While Off
Be sure to attach your zip ties to the end of your device while the device is powered off. If you try to tie them on while it's powered on, the ties and / or the device might slice your fingers.
- Supervise Children
If a child under your care is doing yard work with this tool, watch them closely to make sure they don't touch the end while it's on. You should also attach the debris shield so they don't get hit with any flying dirt. That being said, only older children should touch your Zip Trim at all.
