Substrate jar lids are stuck
    #2528233 - 04/05/04 05:24 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

First I couldn't open my PC and now I can't open the substrate jars. Lightning has struck twice evidently.

Anyone have any tips for opening those stubborn mason jars?

turn harder? Or i know this works with like pickle jars and what not if you take a butter knife that has a pretty heavy handle and genely put little dents in the cap it will help losen it, don't ask me how this works but it worked for me.

get a belt. Run the belt thru the loop and wrap it around the lid. put it on the ground and hold it with your foot as you pull up to twist up and loosen the lid.

works wonders :smile:  :thumbup: :lol:

Did you use metal bands and lids? If so did you invert the lids so the rubber seal side was up?
