At the size of a penny, Pry.Me is the world's smallest bottle opener. There when you need it, hidden in the shadows when you don't. 100% Titanium. 100% Awesome.

Brian and Team Pry.Me 

There’s no denying that a standard bottle opener key chain is convenient to have in the moment, but the rest of the time you end up with a clunky, unwelcome addition to your keys. Why can't you do the same amount of work with less? This is the fundamental idea behind the Pry.Me Titanium bottle opener. It doesn't have the iconic wave shape of most key chain openers or the wide rectangular opening of larger openers. It is just a nice looking adornment that waits in the shadows of your keys until it is needed.

Despite it small size, this Grade 5 Titanium opener has been designed to be strong, like ridiculously strong, like hang a person from a tree and pull a car across a parking lot strong. Check out the images and video below.

Go ahead, win back your key ring space with Pry.Me...the super small yet super strong bottle opener!

Prototypes

This first started on paper determining what could be achieved with the Grade 5 6AL-4V Titanium. How small can it really be? How thin can the walls be?

We crunched the numbers, determined the form factor, and moved to 3D printed prototypes.

After making some tweaks to accommodate manufacturing, we had the final design and were ready to order samples. We sent quotes to 90+ vendors and finally settled on three. Of these three, we selected one to be our primary shop with the other two ready on the sidelines if we need them. 

Put it to the Test!

Car Pull: To demonstrate the strength of Pry.Me, we hooked two openers together and used them to pull a car. Overkill, yes. Cool, most certainly. Check out the images and video:

Please make sure your email associated with your Kickstarter account is up to date.

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We would like to keep our manufacturing with one vendor. Based on the volume of openers ordered, we have two other vendors on the sidelines that are qualified and are ready to aid in production. Adding additional vendors will create more logistics on our end but backers can still expect the same high quality product!
