A container is slightly open (4)


I believe the answer is:


'slightly open' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'a container' is the wordplay.
'container' becomes 'jar' (jar is a kind of container).

'is' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for ajar that I've seen before include "Mourn" , "not entirely open" , "opened tentatively?" , "A litle bit open" , "(Door) to, not shut" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
