Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

many of the prongs on my dishwasher had lost the coating on them. This caused many of my correll bowls to get black marks on them that wouldn't come off, also other plastic containers would get scratched. These prong caps protect against any damage to my dishes!

Dishwasher Prong Caps

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

These dishwasher prongs are the greatest! I have about 12 prongs that I put in my dishwasher 5 years ago and they are still in their doing the job of protecting my plates from scratches and knicks due to the original prongs rusting out and their coating vanishing. The dishwasher prongs cover all that exposed metal and rust.

Worked PERFECTLY!

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

FOLLOWED ADVICE OF EARLIER REVIEWS and Heated in WARM water. Slipped on easily. My dishwasher is a Whirlpool Quiet Partner II, and is 11 years old. Tips were worn down to metal, with some rust ONLY at tip areas. I made sure to use a dishwasher cleaning agent first that also helps to remove some surface rust, and didn't apply covers until all was dry. I am happy with the results. NO GLUE was required. A TAD overpriced..made in Taiwan. Simple covers could be made in the U.S.A.!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought a new dishwasher, my old one's coating wore off the tines and i wanted this to stop from happening to my new machine. A friend of mine told me about these tine covers that he ordered from you. He was very pleased so i ordered that day. I'm very happy just the same and the price was with in my budget, thank you for this simple, but wonderful option!

Little bit of a chore but well worth it!

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

I'm happy with these slip on prong protectors, but it sure does take some faness to slip these on. YOU MUST place the covers in a bowl of HOT water to make the plastic prog covers more plyable to slip over the prongs on the dishwasher racks. My dishwasher racks have 120 progs between the top and bottom racks, so this will take a good half hour or so to do. The 1st few times you run the dishwasher, there will be a chemical/plastic smell from the heat, but it does go away over time. I highly recommend this dishwasher companion, a must have for our household!

Pros

  • 20 Bucks To Do 120 Prongs
  • Durable
  • Easy Instructions
  • Good Add To New Dw Prongs
  • Good Appearence

Cons

  • A Chore To Slip On Prongs

Great cost saver!

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

Use these caps to cover prongs in the dishwasher where metal is starting to show to prevent rust stains on china. They are more cost effective than purchasing a new dishwasher rack! Try a rubber mat used to open jars for help with the tight fit, after first lubricating the prong with dishwashing soap.

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

I needed these badly. We use our dishwasher everyday. If your tips are rusted like mine were, you will need to cut a small slit in the bottom so the cap will fit over the rusted and swollen prong. Work them down with a little push and wiggle. I need to order more, one pack was not enough for a often use machine. Great product!

Dishwasher Prong Caps

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

First purchase was three sets and then reorder four more sets. Had no problem in using the prong, just let them sit in a dish of hot water for a minute or so and then slip them on. Had no trouble putting them on the curved prongs. If your prongs are starting to show wear, get them much cheaper then replacing the entire dishwasher rack. Money well spent.

Great idea, but need to s-t-r-e-t-c-h!

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

Prong caps are a great idea, but these only come in one size, and do not stretch to fit on "fat"/larger prongs! They either need to be made out of a more flexible material, or come in a variety of sizes (color coded)! I have to use a scissors to cut into them in order to make them fit on my dishwasher prongs. And, once cut, then they have a tendency to come off during the wash cycle, since they are not fitting snug on the prongs. Someone should "tweak" this product just a bit, and it would then be 100% terrific!

Cons

  • Come off easily
  • Too Small
Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Extremely difficult to put on

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

I purchased these to do my entire bottom dishwasher rack. I could not get the covers over the rusty prongs at all. I decided to cut the covers in half, so it would still cover the prongs, but go on a bit easier. I did soak the covers in hot, soapy water as the directions indicated. I also stretched out each cover but placing each one over the point of a pen. Not ideal, but I was able to get them on. I also used a rubber jar opener to ease them on the prongs. I took a long time and extreme effort, but it got the job done.

Cons

  • Difficult to use

patience needed

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

These actually work if you follow the directions and soak these caps in hot soapy water and make sure the stay warm while using. These will not go over a heavily rusted prong--but if there is slight rust they eventually can be wiggled down. Takes a firm grip to push these caps over prongs.

Excellent product for its purpose

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

Prior to fitting on, I use a little bit of liquid soap, and they slip on quite easily. I've used all but one of my current supply and have ordered another; also have ordered the repair paint. My dishwasher basket is in fine shape, just once in a while, the prong tips come off; these caps take care of that problem, give it that cosmetic touch. MUCH CHEAPER than buying a new basket for an 11 year old dishwasher which works great!

The con (difficult to use) is really not bad because the fit is so firm, you really have to push down on the caps so they sit properly on the prongs. That is exactly the fit you want, firm enough so they don't fall off. I had to have my husband put them on because I couldn't push down as hard. They work great.

Prongs work great

Comments about Dishwasher Prong Caps:

I've used these before on another old dishwasher rack & they fit well. Racks never last as long as the dishwashers! A friend had trouble because her old prongs had split & rusted, so she couldn't get them on properly. Obviously she waited too long to but some!!

Pros

  • Convenient
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Easy To Use

Best Uses

  • Large Kitchens
  • Small Kitchens
Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My dishwasher is old but works great. However some of the prongs were rusty and would stain dishes. Tried to buy a new basket, but they no longer sold parts for this dishwasher. Came across these caps that you just put over the rusty prongs and was elated! What a wonderful idea!!!
