have not used it yet
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.
I cannot wait to really use this when canning season begins! I love the design and it really should work wonderfully.
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.
