Parts and Features:

Operation:

Step 1. Place the jar whose lid you want to close on a table. Make sure the lid is adjusted properly.

Step 2. Turn ON the power button to start the device.

Step 3. Press the reset button (Red Button) so the inner arms can move outward so the Jar Opener can easily fit on top of the jar. Once the inner arms are lose the gears will stop rotating. (As shown in the picture below)

 

Step 4. Mount the Jar Opener on top of the jar. Make sure the Jar Opener is placed evenly on all corners and both the arms are stretched to maximum capacity.

Step 5. Press the Jar Closer (Black) button. The gears start rotating and the inner arms starts moving inwards to grab the lid while the outer arms also move inwards to grab the jar. (As shown in the picture below)

Step 6. Once the inner arms grab the lid tightly, it starts turning the lid in a clockwise direction (enough torque is provided by the motors to turn it). Once the maximum value of current is reached, the relay changes the direction of the current, hence the motor starts turning in the opposite direction and the arms starts stretching back again to their maximum value. (As shown in the picture below)

Step 7. Press the Power OFF button so the battery does not drains off once you are done. carefully take the Jar opener off from the jar. The lid is closed tightly. Check the lid to make sure the job is done right.

 Troubleshooting Methods:

Problem Solution
Jar Closer does not work
  • Check the batteries if they are in correct position. If batteries are weak, replace them with a new set.
  • Double check ON/OFF button to make sure the device is ON.
Outer/Inner arms do not clamp tightly
  • The diameter of the lid/jar is too small to be closed by the jar. (min diameter of lid = 1.5 (in))
Outer/Inner arms do not open enough to fit on jar
  • The diameter of the lid/jar is too big to be closed by the jar. (max diameter of lid = 4 (in))
Outer/Inner arms slips on the jar/lid
  • Make sure the lid is dry. Wipe lid clean and dry.
  • The Jar Closer is not properly placed on top of the jar. Hit the reset button and adjust the position.
The inner arms stops in outermost position perpendicular to inner arms
  • Rotate the inner arms manually to the original position once you are done using it.
Incorrectly mounted lid. The lid is not closed properly
  • Use the reset button if the lid is rotating unevenly. Once the arms stretches to the outermost position, remove the can closer and make sure the lid is properly placed in right position. Try the Jar closer once again.
