  • How to attach ampoule breakers

      Plastic ampoule breakers are hollow cylinders with 2 different ends - one with "claws" and one without.

      Ampoule breakers

      The end with the "claws" will slide over the "neck" of the ampoule. The neck is the narrower part without the sticker.

      Slide the ampoule breaker "claws" first, over the neck.

      Keep sliding until the claws reach the wider body of the ampoule.
