Self-care can become problematic through age, disability or poor health. Keeping our independence is something we all want, but sometimes you need some extra help.
Zec Richardson, a blogger and reviewer at Satonmybutt, will be taking a closer look at some of our products as part of our in-house team. Today, Zec is talking about the Peta Easi-Grip nail care set, an essential aid that can help if you struggle to cut your nails. It comprises of three nail care items in a clear soft case with zip closure.
Peta mini Easi-Grip scissors
They are lightweight, compact, self-opening scissors – designed specifically for those with joint conditions.
These are a sharp little pair of nail scissors, and I like the fact you can attach a piece of cord through the end of the joined handles. That way if you regularly drop items, they would still be there on your wrist.
I can also see these little scissors being helpful in unpicking seams!
Peta tabletop Easi-Grip nail clippers
These are non-slip, mounted nail clippers for use on tabletops and work surfaces – aids those with limited dexterity and weakness of joints to cut and trim fingernails at tabletop level.
These are the star of the show – a large pair of nail clippers mounted on a plastic board that has four non-slip feet.
It also has a large pad on the nail clippers to make it easier to depress the lever and cut your nail.
These are so handy and many people will find these to be a ‘godsend’. I think it is also possible to place them on the floor and clip your toenails using your other foot to depress the lever!
Peta long-reach Easi-Grip toenail cutters
A comfortable, safe alternative to traditional nail clippers and scissors – the extended, long-reach shank eliminates the need to bend or stretch uncomfortably when trimming toenails.
My mum, aged 70, saw these, and I know that she is after them.
For many people, being able to reach down and touch your toes is but a distant memory. Your struggling days are over as these scissors will be perfect.
The handles are extremely comfortable and it has a large handle opening – even I can get three fingers through! The grip on the handles is also very good.

As I said, the set comes in a clear zipped case that I think would also be very handy to take on holiday, as the airlines/airports like you to have items in a clear bag and this would do that job.
So the Peta Easi-Grip nail care set is a very practical set that will help you take care of your nails.
It is priced at £18.95 inc VAT from the Disability Horizons Shop.
