Safety bottle top opener

Project  / Project number: BK2019/066  /  Status:



The challenge

The safety screw tops found on many bottles (for example bleach bottles) that require the top to be squeezed before being turned, can be difficult to master by those with reduced dexterity.


The solution

The jaws of  standard 9″ slip-jaw pliers were ground down and short lengths of rubber hose glued to them. The slip jaws allows adjustment to suit a range of cap sizes.

The benefit

Bottle tops can be opened with ease.
