Do you have a special technique to open pesky sports cap drinks?

  1. This has already been solved by someone else:
    If you can get access to a 3D printer (I believe quite a lot of libraries have them), a universal bottle opener can be printed:

    • Thanks for the tip Trevor! This looks like it would definitely work to unscrew the whole cap, I wonder if it could be adapted to take off the cap so you could still use the sports bottle lid? Looks like a bit of adaptation may be in order!

    There are already commercially available bottle openers similar to the 3D printed one. I’ve got one like this which was purchased from Aldi a few years ago :

    I have a boa which I also use for opening bottles and taking the (removable) sports tops off:

    A piece of nonslip mat can be used to aid grip, similar to this: and household/slip_resistant-netting-p/non-slip-fabric-0109702-2271-information.htm

    There are ‘dome shaped’ openers that could be another option for the hinged caps: and household/dome-shaped-screw-lid-openers-2287-p/

    Don’t necessarily look in ‘disability’ catalogues/websites, sometimes you can find the same thing cheaper elsewhere!

    I appreciate that the original post is several years old, but I hope this info helps someone!
