With a simple turn of the handle, this band tool tightens your jar bands to perfect "fingertip tight" every time, ensuring every lid pops as it's supposed to and every precious jar of homegrown green beans or homemade preserves stores safely. When your neighbor drops by with four bushels of apples for you to turn into your famous apple butter to last throughout the winter, this band tool is a lifesaver. The long handle puts less strain on your wrists and fingers and gives you more leverage for tightening bands, so you can keep working even after dozens of jars and hours of canning, ensuring your fresh produce won't go bad before you are done. Even children can get in on the canning fun with this easy-to-use band tool. Put your table knives away and save the edges of your counter with this versatile canning tool, which is also ideal for opening jars. Thanks to this band tool's multifunction design, stubborn lids and jar bands are no problem. With the increased leverage from this tool's long handle, you can easily and safely remove factory or home-tightened lids without tapping or pounding. Thanks to the added leverage, this tool is perfect for home chefs with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or anyone with a weakened grip. Features:
  • Works with regular and wide-mouthed jars for convenient canning
  • Reduces the strain on your handsDishwasher safe for easier cleanupMultifunction design tightens or removes lids and bands

  • Best Tool Ever

    I think that this tool is going to allow me to continue canning. Having 2 kinds of arthritis and a steel rod holding my hand/wrist/arm together, I thought I was done canning until I found this really cool tool.

    I recommend this product.

    When I saw this product, I immediately knew I needed one. Arthritis in my hands keeps me from comfortably tightening lids on my canning jars. This product is well-designed and works great. I recommend it!

  • Difficult to use

    I have canned for over 25 years and I found this tool to be clunky and a time waster. As I was handling hot jars and trying to keep my product hot I found it took too much time to place on the jar and then tighten to the correct spot on the handle. It took too many steps to seat the tool on top of the jar, twist correctly and then remove. Sometimes the inner seal also came loose from the tool. Couldn't use it for more than a few jars and then went back to hand tightening.

  • Read the directions on line

    The direction on the packaging is not that great but go on line and look at the videos. You attach while the item is at a 90-degree angle which is very important.

    I recommend this product.

  • It took a couple of tries to get the hang of it but once I did the band tool worked just fine. I think the biggest advantage for me is I do not have to worry about my fingers getting too hot while tightening the bands.

    I have arthritis in my right wrist and hand, and I know my new band tool will come in handed during canning season. I tried it out the minute I got it, to see how it worked, and just fell in love. Opening jars of my homemade canned foods is going to be a breeze from now on.

  • Great for a novice canner

    Made it easy to ensure the right amount of tightening for each jar. Used for both regular and wide mouth. Not a necessary item but is nice to have in my opinion.

  • This will come in handy for tightening the bands on the jars. I broke some bones in my hand several years ago and don't have a lot of strength in that hand. This will help.

  • Doesn't work for hot packing -I do mostly.

    I am returning the item because for me they are useless because they do not grip when the jars are hot. That's what I bought it for. My hand does a much better job.

    I was disappointed in the device and wish I never would have purchased it. My jar opener works better than this tool for tightening jars.
