If your missing the Crescent Tool for your Jack Lalanne juicer, shouldn't matter what version, use your modern day, whatcha been using since grade school.....SCISSORS. Yes SCISSORS, ladies and gents! Stupid me, went to that "Official Site: Jack Lalanne...etc., etc., etc.," and spent $7 bucks and still waiting for them to process. May take 2-3 weeks for delivery?!?!?!?!?!?!?!. Here's how ya do it: Open the scissors up in a X....... Do you get it now. If not, here ya go: Place the sharp, pointy, blunt (for the grade school scissors), ends inside the holes. while placing your fingers at the cross section. Becareful, what those fingers! While holding the basket, your can turn left or right for loosening and tightening. Permanent or Temporary Fixforya.

THANK YOU!!! You are AMAZING!!! Worked perfectly! :D
also you can use kitchen cabinet drawar handle from any hard ware store, very cheap a couple of dollars, you need to find the same dimeter of the juicer blade to match with the 2 secrews on the handle.
from home depot. 1.99$
thank you so much!!! we fixed this problem with plain old scissors! and we even bought the scissors at 99 cents store haha
thank you! I had the same problem and it worked like a charm!
Genius! Thank you!
Yes, Genius! Thanks also.
Thank you! !
The scissors did the trick placed both ends into each hole and with slight twist it released - was able to remove the scissors at that point and using a pot holder I unscrewed it the rest of the way!
This is AWESOME!!! Couldn't find my tool and didn't want stuff to cake on. Worked like a charm.
Thank you! Such a great tip! I am stoked!
How do you purchase the crescent tool?

mine was missing to so I just used my kitchen scissors and inserted the tips in each hole and turned, worked great. Ebay wants $20. for one tool!
Great tip! Can use the juicer again! Thanks!
thank you Rimi178 those thieves on eBay are selling for $13.50 plus like $4.00 shipping
Just find a big wire around 1/8 diameter. Bend it and insert both ends on the blade holes. Cover the sharp blade with cloth or use leather gloves.

the instructions online said turn counterclockwise. also, another person said they used 2 ballpoint pens and it worked!
I used the Phillips head screwdriver and it worked like a charm!
Thanks a lot for the tip. Yes, it worked for me too.
Use small scissors, insert the points in the holes and use the handles to turn.
Call Jack LaLanne Parts at 1-800-460-6210. The kit (includes crescent tool, blade and filter) is $12.99 +2.99 S & H.

I had the same prob - couldn't locate the crescent tool in the U.K. My husband used a long thin phillip head screw driver in the holes to loosen and tighten (improvisation) - you have to hold the basket firmly with one hand whilst inserting screw driver in 1 hole to turn it.

Use a wire hanger twist in to a pretzel shape... leave the two ends short enough to line up with the holes on the blade... make sure the two ends are shorter than a 1/2 inch and fits comfortable in your hand. NOW YOU HAVE A PERMENANT TOOL.

Hi i just bought a jack lalanne juicer from my friend but unfortunately, she no longer had the crescent tool but after reading the solutions on here i thought id try them.... i found the only one that worked for me was the scissors solution but please be very careful as band aids may be required

Theres a YouTube video that a gal put up where you can buy a drawer pull (for approx $3.99) where the screw ends will line up with the holes in the blade. You can use the 2 screws that come with it or buy 2 longer screws & screw them into the drawer pull. Then cut off the heads of the bolts. You have an instant crescent tool!
I solved the blade issue so you won't slice up your knuckles. Unscrew the screws and remove the blade, turn it over and replace the screws loosely but enough to unscrew the basket. It may be extra, but extra is better than sliced knuckles.??
I was getting frustrated because I had taken my juicer out of storage that had been in storage for years. I had given away the pulp catcher and crescent wrench (very unorganized) I was checking prices for parts until I read this page and WA-LA, I was very careful to keep my fingers and the scissor method is a life saver, thank you. The basket to catch pulp can wait I can sweep up celery pulp easily, lol

From your tool shop take two awls and gently insert in the two holes and twist, The thickness of the awls is almost the thickness of the crescent tool, and you don't have the scissors fear of getting cut or playing around getting a hangar to be a makeshift tool.Our crescent tool has just gone missing, and using the awls worked like a charm
