I This invention relates'to tools for removing jar caps.
An important object of the invention 1s the provision of a'plier like implement, thejaws of which are movable toclamp jar caps of different sizes which are to be removed.
A further object of the invention is to provide a pair of jaw members movable to open and closed positions, one of the jawmembershaving a short concavely curved toothed surface for engagement with the jar top at one side thereof, the other of the jaw members having an oppositel curved toothed )5 surface of considerable ength so that a proper clampin engagement ma be had with jar caps o a large range 0 sizes.
These and other objects I attain by the construction shown in the accompanying 2n drawings, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention and wherein Fig. 1 is a' side elevation of a jar cap remover constructed in accordance with my as invention; and
Fi 2 is an edge elevation thereof, one of the awsbeing broken away.
Referring now more particularly to the drawings, the numerals 10 and 11 indicate an jaws havlng) handles 12 b means of which they may operated a out a ivot 13. The jaws 10 and 11 are opposite y bowed, as shown, and have their free ends arranged in opposition and provided with opposed concave toothed gripping faces 14 and Y15,
these faces being h concave and serving" for grip ing small ca s, such as the screw covers 0 bottles and t e like. The jaw 10 has projecting inwardly! there 40 from at its approximate center a lug'16, the inner end, of which is concavely curved and provided with teeth 18. The jaw '11 has its inner surface 19 provided with teeth and is oppositely curved. The curves of the lug 4 and the opp preferably similar, that is to say, the curve osed-face-19 of the jaw 11 are of the lug is made with the same radius as the curve of the inner face of the jaw and the lug 16 is shorter than the toothed portion of the jaw 11.
It will be obvious that a device constructed in accordance with the foregoing may be very readily produced and will be capable of handling practically the entire range ,of jar bottle tops met with in ordinary household work. It will furthermore be obvious that the construction hereinbefore set forth is ca able of a certain range of change and modi cation Without materially departing fromthe spirit of my invention and I accordingly do not limit myself to such specific structure except as hereinafter claimed.
I claim 1. A jar-cap remover, comprising a pair of 'plier connected members with one jaw of one of the members (being provided with a centrally disposed inwardly extending lug, the inner face of which is concavely curved upon an arc of the same radius as the opposed jaw but shorter in length, the opposed face of? the other jaw being oppositely curved said curved face of said lug and the inner face of the last-named jaw being provided withgripping teeth with the teeth on one jaw being extended in a direction opposite the teeth upon the other' j aw, 1
2. A jar ca remover, including opposed arcuate curve jaw faces with one jaw being provided with an inwardly extending lug, the inner face of which is curved upon an arc of the same radius as the opposed jaw, the arcuate face'of said'lug being considerably shorter than the arcuate face of'the o posed jaw, the curved face of said lu and t e inner face of the opposed jaw ing formed with oppositely directed gripping teeth. 7 In testimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature.
