Juries. Patents. Success.
A recent patent we obtained for our client Romek Figa, U.S. Patent No. 10,464,794 is directed towards an apparatus for grasping a jar and aiding in lid opening. One or more jaw members, each having a protrusion located within a spiral groove, may be moveably secured to the top housing. The rotation of the top housing causes the jaw members to move radially inward to engage a base of container. The rotation of the top housing in a second direction causes at least one jaw member to move radially outward to disengage with the base of the container.
