GrabOpener

One Handed Bottle Opener

Pop Top

The GrabOpener turns the traditional two-handed job of opening a bottle into a simple, single-handed solution. Grab a bottle and, with the same hand, pop the top in one clean and easy motion.

Designed by photographer, artist, and inventor, Mark Manger, the GrabOpener is entirely Made in the USA. Its aluminum is from Utah and
it’s manufactured in Denver, Colorado.

While working in Africa, Mark saw the locals open bottles with one hand using a wooden stick with a screw attached. He improved on that method with ergonomic enhancements and a sleek design. He added a magnet to help align the bottle and catch the cap, and fashioned the end to double as a pull-tab opener for cans.

Sensibly designed for use by both lefties and righties, the GrabOpener is the epitome of efficiency. Its clever design makes opening a bottle as easy as reaching out and grabbing on.

    These are a fabulous idea! I'm going to use them as stocking stuffers for Christmas. Thanks for coming up with this great design.

    Great idea for home or for barbecues, but not portable enough for someone on the go.

    I will get a couple as gifts though.

    I know there's a magnet to keep the cap. Any chance I could stick it to the side of my beed fridge?

    Thanks, and thanks for the made in USA!!

    @Joe -Yes! it uses a very strong neodymium magnet that will allow it to hold to your beer fridge

    how hard would it be to add a magnet to this so it could be stored on the fridge?

  • Mark

    @christine -That silver area just above the hook is a strong, 1/2" long neodymium magnet with an approximate pull force of 6lbs. It helps center the opener, it catches the cap, and it will hold the opener to your fridge.

    Pretty cool idea bit I think they're over-priced at $16 each.The most I would be willing to pay is $15, but for three.

    Hi Jeff,

    Your opinion is valued here. For some people, the inexpensive grocery store version will do just fine. We know that some of our community members prefer this route, yet some choose to own a higher quality, made in America version complete with knowing the founder behind the product and where it was made. The GrabOpener is a good option for those who are looking for that.

    @Jeff -I really hope you decide to buy a few anyway. I hate to think someone won't buy my opener because I chose to pay a fair price to manufacture in the US, and not overseas with underpaid labor.

    Even if you buy just one...

    @christopher any chance of the bottle breaking? quite a loud snap when the cap comes off, but I love this because of the magnet!

    @christopher also, the difference between anodized, and hard coat aluminum? which is stronger?

  • Amy
    Amy – Grommet Team
    10/29/2014 3:30 PM

    Hi christopher,

    With proper usage and opening, there shouldn't be a chance of it breaking. The hard coat aluminum makes it more scratch resistant but let's get Mark's expertise here.

  • Mark

    @christopher Hi, both models are aluminum to give them a comfortable weight on your fingers. The anodized colors are decorative, while the hard coat is a very durable and scratch resistant industrial coating. You shouldn't have any issue with breaking a bottle if you use it as shown on the instruction card. This opener keeps the caps flat as they come off, so there is usually a nice pop, even when you use it gently.

    @Mark so I went to buy, why would the black/metal be 4.00 more?

  • Mark

    10/29/2014 5:47 PM

    @christopher -Hi. They cost more to produce and it is a much tougher finish.

  • christopher

    10/29/2014 7:09 PM

    @Mark ok, so finally, before I purchase either the black, or the "metal" which is the most durable?

  • Mark
    Mark – Special Guest
    10/29/2014 8:03 PM

    @christopher -I think they are equal. If you ever have any durability issues over the next couple years, I'll replace it for you.

  • Mark
    Mark – Special Guest
    10/29/2014 4:09 PM

    @Robert -that is also a great product. The GrabOpener is configured to work with a single, natural motion. It engages the cap, removes it, and clears it from the opening as you grab the bottle. The tail of the GrabOpener works as a lever for pull tabs on cans, and the magnet will hold it to the fridge. It is the only opener configured to perform all of these jobs seamlessly.

    American Engineering at its' best. Seriously. Such a simple solution. I can tell you as a former bartender, I would have killed for something like this. What a time saver it would have been on those busy nights when everyone's asking for a beer to have been able to reach into the beer cooler and both grab a beer and poop the cap, all with one hand.

    Kudos to you. Brilliantly simple solution.

    Why is it worth $16.00. It's a bottle opener. All other openers can be used at 1/16th the costZ,

    @Larry -Hi. It's $16 because a fair wage is paid in the US to manufacture them. They are extruded from aluminum in Utah. In Colorado, they are cut, smoothed, anodized, and etched. A magnet (not a cheap one) is set by hand. They are packaged, then shipped from a warehouse. Each step is done at a different place based on cost and skill There are currently 8 different factories/workshops/businesses that do the work. If I played hard-ball with an overseas factory so I could meet an expected price-point of 1/16th the current cost, it would mean someones working wages being sacrificed to maintain any margin for the factory. It's not worth it.

    That's why it cost $16. Whether it's worth $16, is up to you.

    Thanks!
