Maine Man's Spring-Action Lobster Cracker easily cracks and opens lobster and crab shells without damaging the delicate meat inside. An essential addition to seafood tools and flatware, its spring action returns to an open position between squeezes for faster cracking and it opens to 48-degrees for cracking larger claws. A sawtooth edge in 2-different sizes helps to crack different shell sizes easily with little effort. Its silicone grips add leverage, and remain slip-free, even when hands are wet. Made from extra sturdy chrome-plated zinc alloy with silicone grips, Maine Man's Lobster Cracker is sturdy, durable, and compact for easy storage. Hand wash in warm, soapy water.
