Homemade Jar Opener

The accompanying sketch shows a handy device for turning up and unscrewing the covers on glass fruit jars. The loop is slipped over the cover and the handle turned in the direction of the arrow. To unscrew the cover, the tool is turned over and the handle turned in the opposite direction.

The Loop in the Leather Grips the Cap Tightly When the Handle is Turned as the Arrow Indicates

The loop should be just large enough to slip over the cover easily. It is made of leather and fastened to the wood handle with screws.
