BOT-L-BIT: A Hex Bit Bottle Opener

The BOT-L-BIT: Hex Bit Bottle Opener launched on KickStarter today. Whilst it sounds like some sort of spell from an 90’s computer game it’s name is fairly self explanatory – a bottle opening bit that you can stick on the end of your screwdriver – quite genius though who wants to raid their tool chest to open a beer? Not I but I wouldn’t say no to anyone who does (editor: hex-bit cutouts are common place in today’s pocket tools… but then so are bottle openers).

It’s a genius design and would be a great addition to any tool chest or drawer. Its claim to be ‘the only hex bit cap lifter in the universe’ led us to this….. a high-end, solid brass, made in the USA, 5.5 inch hex (bit?) bottle opener. At $68 it seems like the Iacoli & McAllister Hex Opener may be aimed at a different league of clientele, perhaps the sort who may not own a screwdriver (or who can afford not to!)

The inventors of the BOT-L-BIT are hoping to secure $9000 (€8019) to get it into production. Early birds can pick one up for just $8 – we’re all in favour of ingenuity, good design and quality manufacture so here’s hoping they  reach their goal. Good luck fellers!
