Had to soften in hot water first, as directed. Also found it easier if I squeezed the top as I slipped it over the prong. It made the bottom a little bigger as it shot the remaining hot water out of it.

Not a surprise, not very complicated. Tight fitting caps cover the prongs that get chipped over time. Have several that have been place for years without any problems. Handy product to keep on hand.

Great value!
The prongs went on very easily, and I did not have to soak them in warm water first.
The dishwasher looks like new!

dishwasher prong caps fix problem
The prong caps cover the unsightly, worn out dishwasher prongs that have rusted over time and protect the dishes from getting marked up and chipped.

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!

Haven't had this product long, but so far they have
not come off during dishwashing. Caps fit tightly,
but are easy to install. I have previously used
the paint for the rusty prongs, and did not find it
satisfactory in any way.

My attached dishwasher prongs were too big to fit into these small little caps.

For some reason, over time, the heads of the prongs on the dishwasher tend to break off and rust. I have found that this product takes care of that problem. They are easy to use, and makes opening the dishwasher much more apealing!

Longer prongn covers don't fall off. The short ones easily fall off and clog the channels in the dishwasher.

caps rusting
Anna S on Aug 3, 2017
Because I bought these before and they really work well if you apply them to the prong at the very hint of the prong starting to break down. If you wait too long, you can still get around most problems, but it is easier to apply them right away.

A few dishwasher prongs show beginning of rust. I will put caps on all 120 prongs at the same time.<br />Item description needs to list how many tips come in each pack. Reading reviews, one person mentioned buying 3 packs to cover 60 prongs. So I GUESSED 20/pack.

It doesn't say how many prong caps come in the package, so how do I know how many to order?
It must show the quantity per package.
A shopper on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The Dishwasher Prong Caps come in a set of 20. We hope this information will be of help to you.
Do these fit GE dishwashers?
chatty on Nov 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Kathryn, I do not own a GE dishwasher, mine is a Whirlpool, but I would think that all prongs are probably of a universal size. The caps worked really well. If the rust buildup is too thick, you will have to get a pair of pliers and twist the excess rust off so the caps will go on . Also, you will have to apply more pressure on some to make the caps go on. You may also have to use something to stretch the opening of the cap to get it started. I used a small phillips screwdriver to widen the opening. I hope this will be helpful to you. Oh also take the rack out so no rust gets in the dishwasher. That suggestion may merit a DUGH, but sometimes I overlook the obvious. Ken P.
Where are these made?
Amy Z on Oct 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry I don't really know. They came in a little bag along with other items in big box. My guess would be China; but they do work good.
Where are these made?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2015

Nevertheless, I am totally impressed with them.
