The invention relates to a container gripper for gripping and retaining containers (2), for use in an apparatus (3) for transporting containers. The essential aspect of the container gripper according to the invention can be seen here in that at least one pusher element (11), which can be displaced radially in relation to the machine axis (MA), is provided in order to initiate a positive-guidance pivoting movement of the first and second arms (5.1, 5.2) of a corresponding container gripper, and in that the pusher element has a first control curve (12) for controlling the first gripper arm and a separate, second control curve (13) for controlling the second gripper arm, wherein the first and second control curves are designed for the positive guidance of the respective gripper arm between the gripping position and the release position.
