I am trying to change my blade for the first time on my Andis to another size. I can't for the life of me get one of the small screws off from the inside and am afraid of stripping it. Does anyone have any secrets to loosening that up?

You shouldn't have to change any screws on most clippers...

Here, I attached a diagram:

Step one is to put your fingers under the teeth and push up and away from the clippers.

Step two, now that the blade is sticking up, you just slide it off!

You also want to turn the clipper on while placing the new blade on the clipper. I learned this from a special clipper store here in town. I guess the blade lines up better when you do it while it's on. But definatly do not undo the screw's if its a Andis clipper. Like they said above it pops off. My husband did the same thing (tried the screws) so I went to the store and they should me how to correctly re-move and replace it.

THe replacement blade I have is not just the blade that sits on the outside but the inside blade pieces as well. hard to describe. Perhaps i will bring it to Petco or somehwere and show the groomer

The screws hold the cutting blades together. If you take them out, the blade will probably fall apart.
I was confused when I first got my clippers too.

To all of you that helped me out...IT WORKED and i trimmed up one of my 4 dog yesterday. He looks great. He has a tendency to enjoy dirt so this helps him to stay clean.
