Greetings followers with RSI or other issues that weaken their grip or otherwise make turning tight things difficult. Allow me to present the strap wrench, designed to remove overheated oil filters from huge trucks, which is a mere $10 at the hardware store.
@xarph gosh, that's great. I really struggle and hate having to rely on another person.
@Xarph tyvm for this!
@xarph I keep one of those handy for just such things. My wife finds it awkward, so I'm the only one that uses it. 😆
@Xarph there’s also this great tool I’ve had that lifts up the edge of the lid to break the seal. The lifting motion is sometimes easier for me than twisting even with extra leverage and it’s very fast. Called Jar Key I think?
@Xarph yo what the fuck?
@xarph that's a great tool 🙂
@xarph I have something very similar that I break out any time Mom has a jar she can't open. I ought to get her one of her own.
@xarph And you can always make the handle longer :-)
@gemlog i learned two science and math things in high school that I still use. one is leverage and torque. the other is the pythagorean theorem.
