Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
You need to unscrew (counterclock) the thin top of the clear container, grasping ONLY the very top of it (5mm high), which is screwed to the top of the gray inner cylinder that contains the blades. This clear top IS NOT glued to the clear container!
Most people probabbly do as I did first, to grasp the whole clear container (because it seems to be a single part), but again, you need to turn ONLY the very top of the clear plastic (you can notice a fine line where the screwed top ends and the big container starts.
I hope you read this before breaking it up!

I couldn't find any directions on the package. After trying everything to remove the clear cover to empty the shavings, I resorted to the computer. I see why it was on sale for 6.99, from 14.00 at Office Max!
Thank you for saving me from further frustration and sore hands!

After you figure out how to open the top.You are then faced with how to get the lead to that broke off into the blade.
There is another trap door on the blade cover with two notches pry carefully to remove top. Blade cover should slide out.
if you can't do this then bash it with a baseball bat the end result is quite satisfying!
AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DAT!

I had the same problem with it. Gave it to a friend and he eventually opened it. Emptied it and put the top back on, lightly. Tried again. Same problem. Asked wife to do it, she jiggled it counterclockwise, then clockwise and eventually doing that repeatedly, got the top off. Mines battery operated and if need be, the top will stay in a drawer or ask someone else to open it for you. I have neuropathy in my fingers, hence no feeling in them.
