Cut through the wick

The slot for the wick is so sharp that it slices straight through the wick. Too light to stay in place. Do not recommend.

Favorite Wick Bars

These are my favorite wick bars. I've tried several different types and these are the ones I come back to again and again. When you first get them they can be a little tight but you can adjust the hold with a pair of needle nose pliers. But I've only had to do that on a couple. I love these because they work with any of my jars or tins and actually grip the wick keeping it straight and taut. I will warn to be careful. These are made of metal and there are sharp edges. I've never had an issue or cut myself using them but I can see the potential of it happening . Just something to be aware of.

Sinkholes Under Bars

I noticed today that all of my candles develop sinkholes underneath the wick bar. I am guessing the material is preventing air from escaping from the portion of the candle it covers, creating uneven cooling. Anyone else have experience with this and if so, how did you solve for it?

Slices every single wick

I have yet to get one of these to work. When I try to slide the wick in the slot, it's so sharp, it cuts the wick. It happens every time. I try to be delicate, but it cuts right through them every time.

I needed something for my square vessels I double wick. Nothing was working so I gave these a try. They work perfect for what I need. I use cdn’s 4-12’s and they work really great for me.

Easy to use

Works as expected. Helps keep my wicks nice and straight! Glad I have them. It's nice it come in a 12 pack, I always have enough as a hobbyist.

I love them!! Worked best upside down for me

I love these! These hold my wick perfectly. I personally turn them on the other side because it rests nice and even on my jars surface and I’m able to wiggle my wick in with a little pressure and then pull tight.

Hated these!

Good lord, I tried so hard to get these to work for me. Flipping upside down, leaving them for a minute, pouring on the floor… the wicks just kept slipping out and they got almost zero tension so the wicks would droop or wiggle away from center. I eventually just went back to my old faithful clothespins and popsicle sticks. So disappointed - will be purchasing the bowtie style elsewhere if I decide to try wick bars again.

Waste of money for ECO 16 wicks

These do not fit ECO 16 wicks. Wasted my money.

Wick bars

I loved these! So much I ordered ten more packs. The openings weren't big enough to use this time, though so they are pretty much useless. 😭 I'm not sure what happened! I only have one size candle and one size wick too so I know that isn't it.
