This jar lifter is designed to allow easy removal of any size canning jar from boiling water without danger of burns. It is safer than tongs.
It is double hinged and double handled. The handles separate and come together to create a grasp around the jar from a position directly above the jar. The metal is cushion coated for best gripping power and less breakage. The plastic handles measure about 2 3/4 " and the length of the tool is about 8 3/4".
