About

EdgeOpener - Bottle Opener on the Edge

Are you tired of chipping the edge of your counter top, work bench, or kitchen table when you use it to open a beer... you know, like a pro? Do caps roll off somewhere, only for you to find it later as you are walking around barefoot in the dark? Then EdgeOpener is for YOU!  

Ok, maybe that is a bit over the top but the EdgeOpener is a fun, clever, convenient way to open a bottle that doesn't destroy your furniture or mess your floor... and you look cool doing it.

How Does It Work

EdgeOpener mounts to the edge of "whatever" by means of an adhesive strip.  Rest the bottle cap on the edge and strike the cap with the palm of your hand, or closed first, the cap will pop off and be caught by EdgeOpener's strong neodymium magnet.  EdgeOpener can be removed easily and will not damage surfaces.

Why you should fund

EdgeOpener was created from a light bulb moment; I was trying to look cool in front of friends by opening a beer on the side of a work bench but the bench had a rounded edge and what I needed was a sharp edge. Later at home I cobbled something together in my garage, with a magnet because I don't want to pick the cap up, and after a few tweaks and a strong enough magnet, it worked!!  

I was so proud of myself and better yet my lovely wife though it was a clever idea.  That is when I realized I needed to share EdgeOpener with the world! 

Funding for this project will go to make EdgeOpener a marketable product by paying for:

  • Domain name, website hosing, and all the other things need to sell EdgeOpener online, once the Kickstarter campaign has ended
  • Professionally designed EdgeOpener Logo, I need something to put on those Bottle Sleeves
  • Trademarking of "EdgeOpener" and Logo, making things legit costs money
  • Purchase of new equipment and tools, I need a bench top mill/drill and a proper saw along with a few other miscellaneous tools to be able to produce EdgeOpeners in large volume.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with this project is that EdgeOpener is a one man show. Design, testing, prototyping, manufacturing, packaging, and shipping will all be done out of my home during off hours, but that is why Kickstarter exists, right? Prototyping of both the design and manufacturing process has been completed, funding will be used to buy some better equipment but the process is dialed in and ready. As a project engineer I am familiar with all the pit falls in producing and shipping a new product, I have sourced and priced all materials and equipment needed and any set backs or delays will be addressed immediately. All that being said if the demand for EdgeOpener far exceeds my expectations I may not be able to keep up. If that were to happen then part of the production may be outsourced to a local machine shop.
