This is a tool that uses razor blades. The Glass Scraper is exactly like what is sounds like. Painters have used this tool ever since the razor blade was invented. Use this tool to remove paint on a glass panel, or other hard smooth surface.

This post shows five steps on how to properly install a razor scraper blade on a razor scraper without cutting or losing any fingers.

Step 1: Obtain a razor scraper blade, with a metal lip on the top and in fig.1 shows the glass scraper is upside down for installation of the razor scraper blade.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the razor is sliding towards the right side of the tool.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows the tool has completely retracted the scraper blade for safety, notice the tool has a push down nub that allows the tool to extracted completely for use.This nub locks into the unit thus providing safety.
