Where Can I Find A Round Rubber Jar Opener

Hi, I am trying to find a jar opener. It's usually round, rubbery with a slight texture to it. It's usually given as a give-a-way from businesses. You hold it in your hand as you are attempting to open a tight jar lid. I threw one out after having for years and can not seem to locate them anywhere. Any suggestions? I googled "jar openers" and terms along those lines but had no luck. Thanks guys! :o)

Hi Holly,

Try searching for 'rubber gripper jar opener' and you'll probably find it.

Here's one link where I found it;

At the Dollar store or anyother store, get a rug gribber, rubber placement, or shelf liner, cut to your size and wa la!!

The new silicone hot pads that are in stores everywhere work great as jar openers - and double as hot pads so you get 2 items for the price of one - how thrifty is that!

Queenie,Mich & Mum ~ Hey guys, thanks for the speedy reply on my question. You each came up with great ideas. I went into another Google search and it popped up with about 8+ pgs. I appreciate all your suggestions and think I'll try out the shelf liner. Never thought of that. Again, thanks to the three of you. ~ Holly :o)

All you have to do is get some rubber shelf liner the stuff with the holes is fine when it wears out just cut out a new one .

What I find helps is using plain elastic bands (the thicker bands). I usually get them when buying broccoli at the supermarket and toss them into the elastic drawer. When needed, I wrap one or two elastic band(s), around the lid and the jar opens easily.

If you can't find exactly what you want, use a rubber glove with the ribbed edge toward the jar. I have opened jars this way for years.

Hi,why don't you just ask someone who works in a garage to cut you a piece of inner tube from a tire (,they must have some that are to bad to patch,)in a circle and use that

I found a great jar opener at Cracker Barrel. It is rubbery and fits all different size jars. The cost is around $7 if I can remember correctly.

How about going to a dollar store & using one of those flat rubber "Bathtub Plugs"?

I Googled "rubber jar opener" and got several links. I did the same search on ebay and came up with several too.

Buy a roll of the new "spongy" drawer liner material (you can find it near the contact paper). Just use a small plate or toilet paper roll for cutting the circle shape. They work wonderfully as jar openers!

I got mine at WalMart....there were 4 in a package, in the housewares I think. You could also use that stuff you put in the kitchen drawers to keep things from sliding around...Don't remember the cost , but it wasn't much.

Ace Hardware has them for about $2.00.

Try googling 'rubber jar gripper' and 'jar and bottle openers'.

The picture posted, I have that one and it kinda sucks. It tears if the jar is ribbed. For example, I only typically need a jar opener for my Vanilla Extract. It's always so tight that my boyfriend ripped that opener. We use pliers. Anyway I did a search and found this site, http://www.fantes.com/openers.html. Go down about halfway, it says "Round rubber jar opener". They are $1 and then like $6 to ship. I am probably going to order from them.

I want to thank everyone too. My mother is 87 and I cannot open jar either because of carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. She remembers the old rubber jar openers like the one you asked for. Now I bet I can get several for us. Every store owner I asked had not clue what they were!

Thanks again---you've made 2 "old" ladies very happy (and their hands won't hurt opening jars anymore!)
