Do you have an "L" or "LR" series pruner? Note: These pruners do not telescope. First, check the blade. Does it lean when it exits the tube? Then it is either the "L" or "LR" series. The easiest way to determine which is to check the handle. If the handle is completely orange or red, then it is the L-series. If the handle is silver with red inset, it is an LR series.
