Wick Bars

Wick bars hold the wick tight while pouring a candle, and allow for easy centering of the wick in both containers and molds. Wicks bars are sold in 12 pc. bags to match standard glass case packs.

Wick bars are 4" (10.2 cm) long and 1/2" (1.3 cm) wide and feature a center wick slot.

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.

Loved my first order! Ordered 2 more bags of these since I loved my previous order. The new ones, however are tighter than the ones for my original order. Didn't change the wick size either, so they come to no use.

Easy to use and totally worth it

I've been using chopsticks and pencils and other items like that because I heard they were good at holding your wicks. I've always had problems with them moving but I bought a bag of these to test and, oh my, they are fantastic at holding wicks! I'm definitely buying more!
