    could be oil filter wrench or jar opener. I don't think the etsy description is right. Not enough leverage to tighten a pipe that size and generally not made heavy enough.

    Good job Plug. I can imagine some scenarios where these would end up in a tool box.

    You know what makes a great impromptu oil filter wrench?
    ... a flat blade screwdriver !

    If you ever get one that is super-stuck to the engine because the mechanic over-tightened it, just jam a screwdriver clean through the filter for added leverage.

    Anduril,
    I've done that and had the filter rip apart and then it's a real bugger to get what's left off...
