First Generation: Wood
The first 20,000 jar openers were sold entirely in solid wood, and through church and civic organizations, and local fund raisers.
Second Generation: Lid Persuader
In order to keep up with demand, Cliff decided to transition to plastic injection molding. Yeah, we know it’s kind of a funny name, but “The Lid Persuader” was a huge success. Featured on national TV in the 1990s, and gaining greater notoriety, our beloved under-cabinet jar opener grew in popularity, and began to venture out into homes across the U.S.
In the early 2000s, we retired The Lid Persuader brand, and began selling and distributing our product wholesale for a company who agreed to grow the product on this marketplace, which they have done with great success. Beginning in August 2019, they decided to use our design to make their own version of our product, so we wished them well, and have gone our own separate directions.
Third Generation: The Grip
Now introducing The Grip brand in August 2019! We thought “The Lid Persuader” name was a bit of a mouthful (“are you saying lip persuader? That sounds interesting…”). So when we reintroduced our family brand to retail, we liked The Grip a little better. And we’ve made some aesthetic improvements! By adding a matte finish, we’ve removed the glossiness. And after removing the sticker, we’ve added an embossed logo, which is a little more subtle, and more visually appealing. We love it, and believe you will to!
The Grip Jar Opener: The Original, Hidden-Under-Cabinet Lid Opener
- THE ORIGINAL: The Grip is the original hidden-under-cabinet jar opener, both invented and family owned and operated since 1977. Although our brand is new to Amazon in August 2019, we have years of proven effectiveness and helped hundreds of thousands of people. And you may have even seen us featured on national TV!
- ANY SIZE OR TYPE OF LID: from fingernail polish to large 6” pickle jars, The Grip will grab and open it with ease. Simply place any size jar or other container inside the V-shape design, twist, and voilà! And much more than a jar opener, it opens child-proof medicine bottles, water and soda bottles, milk jugs, laundry detergent, vacuum sealed jars such as spaghetti sauce and baby food, honey, and those slippery smooth ridge lids such as peanut butter. There is literally nothing it won’t open!
- EASY INSTALLATION: our adhesive is industrial grade and forms a permanent bond, so installation is a piece of cake. As seen in the picture illustration, simply peel off the cover, press firmly, screw and you’re ready to go! NO MORE STRAIN OR PAIN: unlike other openers, you don’t need two hands to open containers. Which means, not only is it easier, but pain free!
- CARBON STEEL BLADES: strong and durable, these steel teeth do all the work and never wear or dull, opening up lids effortlessly as long as you have it. DURABLE ABS PLASTIC: We use highly durable and break-proof ABS plastic. We pay more, so you get the most reliable opener on the market. HIDDEN UNDER CABINET: since it sits underneath your cabinet out of sight, you’ll never know it’s there until you need it! And no more added clutter, taking up valuable space in that kitchen drawer of yours.
