Easy and convenient

I read the mixed reviews and assumed I would have issues with the bars slipping off my glass jars but I didn't. It works great on the aluminum tins and glass jars. It's not as easy to fit the larger wicks (ECO 16) into the slot but with a little adjusting it works just fine.

I found the Wick Bars to be helpful and easy to use. No problems whatsoever.

Good for Straight Sided Containers

These wick bars are well made from quality material, and I especially like the V-notch for holding the wick. Straight wick bars are best for straight sided containers. For containers with round openings the wick bars with the curved grooves (the ones that look like a bow tie) work better for positioning the wick and keeping it centered, as the straight bars tend to move about.

Light Glow Candles

A trick I use to keep the wick tight is once the wick is in place I use a pinch type clothes pin or a pinch spring type paper clip. This lets you pull the wick tight.

I love these things, but there are a couple of tricks

I pull the wick taut and use my thumb to press the wick into the slot, center the wick, and bend the excess over the top of the wick bar. Keeping it taut, wind the remaining wick once (or twice if votive) around the wick bar outside the edge of the jar. Tuck the end into the underside of the wick bar. Takes about 3 seconds once you get a rhythm and perfectly centered wicks every time because it keeps it tight.

Kind of helpful...

but they do tend to slip. I just get a little masking tape on each side to hold it in place.

Helpful

I found these bars very helpful.

Wick Bars

Not overly crazy about these...we prefer to use the round ones specially designed for jelly & mason jars...if you are not careful, these will slip and your wick will be uncentered....more of a burden than a help...
