This jar opener grips on to most jar lids or caps and then utilises a long handle to help make opening your jars and bottles easier.

Please note: For hygiene reasons this product is non-returnable unless faulty or unused with original packaging in a sellable condition.


An easy way to open jars. This jar opener has a large handle that allows you to open the lid with ease, thanks to the leverage effect. This product is particularly useful for people with limited dexterity.

Simply place the gripper over your jar lid, rotate the turn-knob clockwise to tighten the jaws onto the lid; the tool will lock into place. It will stay locked on the lid and won't let go. While holding the jar or bottle securely, grasp the handle and push counter-clockwise to open. Then just loosen the turn-knob to release the lid.

The jar opener opens threaded caps and lids from 1 inch to 3.5 inches/2.5 cm to 9 cm. Works on smooth-sided and grooved caps, too.

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under the 'Articles for the Blind' scheme.

However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items.

Where a product incurs a delivery charge this is highlighted in the product details and will be added to your order at checkout.

When we send your products, the package will include a 'dispatch note' with details of the contents. It is really important to check this against the actual contents of the package and alert us immediately (within 7 working days) of receiving the order about any discrepancies.
