When it comes to wax guards it is important to know the different types:
1) Some wax guards use a tool like a small stick with two sides, one for removing the existing wax guard and one for attaching the new one.
2) Other wax guards have a round design with a port for removing and another port for replacing the wax guard. This design is dependent on the manufacturers.
