The bottle opener has been around for many years as a tool to remove bottle tops from beverages. Like any gadget, it has been modified in order to better serve various situations. Essentially, bottle openers use a basic lever technique that pries from the underside of the bottle cap, while using the top of the cap as a resting point. The motion then pops the bottle open. Psst! A churchkey opener is commonly found (or lost) in kitchen junk drawers or on key chains, but there are many specialized designs like a bartender's speed-opener or a wall-mounted opener. Even though placing a cap between your teeth or against the corner of a new coffee table is tempting... we highly suggest looking into the many other options out there that are more cost effective in the long-run.
The DropCatch team took a special interest to the Wall-Mounted Bottle Opener. Utilizing the same lever motion and mounting to the wall makes opening bottles a breeze. Not to mention, it is easy to do with one hand. The downside of this technique is that the cap will likely fall to the ground, unless the user has superhuman reflexes. This left a fun area for innovation! Melding the wall-mounted opening experience with an extremely powerful magnet catch was the logical next step for bottle opener history. No clean up? No more ruining hardwood floors? A fun drop, catch, and clink right before your eyes? Eureka!
