I bought this product as a cheap follow-focus, not as a jar opener. As a follow-focus it easily fits onto any lens and the thick rubber handle provides a great ease-in/ease-out. For that purpose I would highly recommend it. As a jar opener... I have no idea.

Great for a follow focus!, if someone had made this for a follow focus instead of a jar opener it would have cost $100

This jar opener works well for only small sizes of lens (Regardless of the misleading product photo showing 3 openers and I ended up received 1). I'm using a sigma 50mm lens with 77mm diameter, I was able to fit the opener around the lens but that black plastic grip simply won't go down to tighten the lens. Therefore, focusing is poor and the opener kept falling off. I think it works best for lens that has 60mm or smaller lens size.

Also if you are using the Canon 50mm f1.8, the focus ring of that lens is way too close to the edge, the opener won't grip it at all. Just FYI. Hope it helps.

Saw a video review of these as a "follow focus" so I bought it... Tried it on my jars of jam to see if it would work... it didn't but its great as a follow focus for my lenses!

This product has the capability to fit well but the slide lock doesnt hold so sometimes the opener loses its grip.

Expected 3 or these items - the picture clearly shows three (random colors). I searched the description after i received 1 - and it does not say one. this is misleading and needs to be corrected. Bought as follow focus - not very good

Got the product really fast, but as soon as I opened it, I could see a little damage in 2 places on this product. This is probably just a random case, but how annoying is it to get something damaged that could have been avoided if checked before sending it. It is still useable so I am not returning it, and hence the 2 stars.

Is the picture of 3 items and referencing plural with "(Random Colors)" deceptive? I don't know. A late night spontaneous purchase made a fool of me. Could I return it? Probably, is it worth it for a $5.16 purchase? No.

How ridiculous of this to show a List Price of $61.42! For quantity ONE silicone jar opener? Trudeau and Amazon you both should be ashamed of yourselves. Amazon, you can't pretend you didn't know...look at all the other reviews saying the same thing.

For those who are considering using this for a Focus Follow attachment, forget it. Like other reviewers you'll find this ill-fitting for lenses with diameters larger than 60mm and ill-fitting for Canon 50mm prime lenses too. Go to an office supply store that sells THICK rubber bands or use large wire ties to accomplish the same thing. (And perhaps a more attractive cover than these too.)

Caveat emptor - and avoid Trudeau forever.

I'm seeing so many reviews by photographers saying this is great as a follow focus. They might be right for their particular camera but I found it just doesn't work. I tried using it with my Nikon 18-55 and the black cinch doesn't tighten up enough to keep it from slipping, even along the rubber grip. Also it's super flexible so even if you can tighten it up enough you won't get very good or smooth control out of it.

It's a cheap solution so if you want to try it out go ahead but don't be disappointed when it doesn't work.

Gave it 3 stars because I'm sure it's still fine as a jar opener.

Also bought it for a Follow focus unit. Expected 3, got one. Not as pictured, the black clip in the picture is roughly twice as long as on the one received, because of that, the black binder clip never actually grips and stays on. I bought from "Tool District", it seems that various marketplace vendors sell the same product and use the same ad-copy and picture, to be fulfilled by Amazon. I can't get back to the "Tool District" page now, but I am fairly certain I confirmed it was for a set of 3. The pages I read now indicate, rather clearly, that there is only one: "Sold Individually, your may receive either Color Red, Green or Blue". Too cheap a product to return.
