Splash guards help keep your area (and your shirt!) clean from spinning liquids. They replace the standard lower lever, and open and close with the same motion. The rear pivot is held in-place using magnets, making it easy to open and clean in side the seamer and guard. There are versions available for all our seamer models, and they are super easy to install. Make sure to choose the correct version for the model seamer you have, or intend to purchase.
