Gilhoolie Jar Opener
Hard to use
I have the original one for around 45 years and love it. Wanted to get my grown children one as it is the best ever. I was happy to see the Vermont store carrying
one that looked a lot like mine. GOt it yesterday and decided to try it. I had nothing but trouble trying to move the sliding part. It kept getting caught on the ratchets. Took a long time till I was able to figure it out.
The mechanism is different than the original and is not consistent in the way you adjust it. Hope my kids can figure it out better than me.

This is the best gadget. I have arthritic hands and this is just the thing to help open those tight jars.

Please release me ...
Opens everything from pears to pickles. It works spot on with the leverage. Easy to find in the gadget draw.

No husband or handyman around the house? Better get yourself a gilhoolie!
The gilhoolie is the BEST purchase I've made in a very
long time. It's the perfect gadget for all your bottle/jar caps and lids. It is strong and well made. I have weak hand grips so opening tight caps and lids is a breeze with the gilhoolie. I highly recommend this gadget to everyone!

Gilhoolie Glen Ross
Now this is something they could really sell at Glenn Garry Glen Ross! It is so versatile for any type of jar opening, & even crimps bottle caps back on!

Useful household tool
I purchased three of this product as I had a similar jar-opener that was an antique. The Gilhoolie is slightly different, but works well. I got three so that I could give two as gifts. It's always hard to open jars without help. My husband uses it too.

I have arthritis in my hands and it is getting increasingly more difficult to open jars. This little gadget opens all sizes with ease. I only wish it were made in USA.

Best Wedding Gift Ever
This was a wedding gift back in 1966! I wasn't quite sure at the time how much I would use it or how well it would hold up. It is still going strong & gets lots of use. Two years ago I tried to find one for our daughter only to find it wasn't available. I was thrilled when I spotted it on your website and have ordered 2- one for her and one for our son and his family. Thanks for finding this gilhoolie jar opener again!!!
