Ball® Sure Tight® Band Tool for Mason Jars


Item #1033999VM

Secure jar bands with confidence! The Sure Tight™ Band Tool secures jar bands with the exact right amount of torque.  No worries about it being too loose or too tight.  Also use the lid-open function to unscrew the band.  The uncapper device at the end even helps you pop the lid off.


Getting a good seal starts with securing the band with the correct force. This tool takes the guesswork out of securing the band to “fingertip tight”.

Ball® Sure Tight® Band Tool for Mason Jars is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Helpful I decided to try canning for the first time this year but had no one to show me how tight "tight enough" really is. Since this was less than $10 it seemed like a good investment and it turned out to be the thing I'm most pleased with. I was very surprised at how (relatively) little it takes to get lids to the proper tightness, and am fairly sure I'd have overdone it if I hadn't used this tool. Anyway, short story kinda long, counting "plinks" was very satisfying and I have recommended this tool to a couple other people who want to learn to can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure Tight- Great item I bought this at the local store, have been canning for over 40 years and once in a while your not going to get a lid right. This tool takes all the guess work out. For the most part, I'm right on the money but when using the Sure Tight Tool, I had some that needed a little more. Since using it, I haven't had any jars to reprocess. So far this season, I have canned some 367 jars and still canning. I plan on 1093 meals a year so if I put up close to five to six hundred jars I'm good. So just to double check my lids is time saving in the long run. I advise this for the beginner or anyone who cans on a regular basis....Happy Canning

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ping Ping Ping The jar tightening tool is the best canning accessory I have ever bought. I have some griping issues, and have always hating dealing with the hot rings. Every jar has sealed. Ping Ping Ping. Yipeeeee!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to use 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read the directions on line 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.
