For those users who need something more comfortable from their secateurs. Weak hands or arthritis, having a set of ergonomic or ratchet pruners will help greatly in making those pruning tasks easier and less painful.

Ergonomic secateurs have been designed with comfortable, sometimes rotating handles and angled heads helping those with hand and joint associated problems.

Ratchet secateurs are designed in way that a user does not need to cut through the stem in one go. Squeeze the handle and the ratchet will hold the stem in place until more pressure is applied. This helps especially when cutting through larger, woody stems.
