How do you fit a junior hacksaw blade?

Place the blade in the frame with the teeth pointing away from the handle, towards the end of the saw. This is sometimes easier to do if the junior hacksaw is upside down. Once the blade is in place, tighten it by turning the thumb wheel in a clockwise direction.
