(01. s1--s.30) 1 2 The present invention relates to implements which is securely fastened to the wall or other support 6. It also includes a lateral shelf flange ‘2, the latter being at an approximate obtuse an gle to the Wall 6. As brought out in Figure 2, and devices such as are expressly designed and constructed for applying and removing screw caps, that is, caps of the type used on various so - called the shelf ?ange is provided with'selectively usable keyhole slots 8 and 9, these to accommodate the As the preceding statement of the invention implies, I am aware that many different types of so-called wrenches and similar devices have been headed studs it on the adjacent ends of the noose sure an effective clamping action while minimiz nected to the crank arm I3 on the hand-crank [2 ing the likelihood of crushing either the cap or the jar neck. Other features and advantages will, become more readily apparent from the following de scription and the accompanying illustrative as shown in Figure 2. The adjacent links coil around in a return bend fashion and the crank arm I3 is turned to a point beyond “dead-cen types of containers, particularly “Mason” and similar jars. or chain 1 l. A crank l2 having an appropriate hand-grip is pivotally mounted on the shelf devised to facilitate the step of either applying 10 ?ange l and this is provided with a crank arm I3 or removing screw caps. The present invention underlying said flange and pivotally and oper pertains to what is believed to be a novel and atively connected to the adjacent end link of the improved structure for accomplishing the same chain as brought out to advantage in dotted lines general purpose, the same being outstanding, , in Figure 2. It will be noticed that the hand-grip comparatively speaking, in that it grips the lid 15 portion of the crank is disposed at an elevation or cap in such a way as to support the entire load well above the plane of the chain, this to provide and to leave the hands free to embrace the jar desired clearance and appropriate operation of or container, thus simplifying and rendering the the parts. results more reliable and satisfactory. The chain is made up of flat links 14 pivotally More speci?cally, the invention has to do with 20 connected together, certain of said links having an especially constructed wall-type hanger brack integral depending lugs l5 and said lugs being et or ?xture, said ?xture serving as an appropri provided with anti-slipping teeth and serving as ate adapter for the cap gripping noose or chain, grips for the screw cap IS on the jar H, whereby to not only securely embrace the cap and The cap embracing and gripping ch'ain device support the load but to angularly position the jar 25 or unit is of a, self-sustainingtype in that the for convenient and expeditious handling. ' links I4 are of rigid metal and have their, adja A further feature of the invention is thought to cent ends overlapping and pivotally connected reside in the provision of a novel cap embracing together. One end of the chain is provided with chain constructed of ?at pivotally connected the aforementioned headed stud 10 which is links, the links being provided with laterally ar 30 slipped into either one of the selected keyhole ranged toothed cap-engaging grips, the latter slots 8 or 9 as the case may be, this to partially coming into engaging contact with the cap, and adjust the chain to the size of cap being han the links resting on the crown of the cap to in dled at the time. The opposite end link is con drawing, ter,” whereby this end of the chain is “locked,” as it were. 40 In the drawing, wherein like numerals are em ployed to designate like parts throughout the In practice, the device is used as shown in Fig ure 1, the links M resting on the top or crown of the cap it and the gripping lugs I5 engaging the cap at circumferentially spaced points.
