Hello! We have had a lot of people asking if they can get these by Christmas, so we've decided to switch directions. We renegotiated with our factory to get a very small shipment of bottle openers sent in time for Christmas. So we have cancelled our campaign and relaunched a new one so you can have some beers in hand on Christmas day. Check it out here: https://www.indiegogo.com/at/sixoverone

WHAT IS SIXOVERONE?
SIXOVERONE is the only bottle opener that can open up to six bottles at once. You can also open one beer, two beers, three beers, four beers, five beers, as well as six beers! Because everyone has wished they could open a six pack at once, right?
Not up for drinking six beers? No worries, you can open individual bottles, two bottles, four packs, and everything in between.
The six pack bottle opener was created so that people can share more beers with more friends. So the next time you’re at a tailgating party, others will be cracking open a cold one, but you and your buddies will be cracking open six cold ones. This novelty bottle opener is a great excuse to get turned up with your friends.
The six pack pack bottle opener was designed to be the perfect tool to get the party started anywhere you take it.
WHOSE TALKING ABOUT US?
HOW DO I USE THIS BEAUT?
STEP 01: Place the bottle opener over the bottle caps, then push straight down so that all the caps snap into the openings. Make sure all the bottles are nice and snug before you try to pry them off.
HINT: Sometimes it helps to slide the lip of the opening under the caps on the first two bottles and then push down to snap the rest into place.
STEP 02: Place one hand on the front of the bottle opener and wrap your fingers around to hold the last two bottles in place.
STEP 03: Grab the handle with your other hand.
STEP 04: Pull the carrier up against your leg which will help hold it down while you open. Then lift the handle up to rip those caps off!
***FREE US SHIPPING***
International shipping is scary for everyone. If you’re reading this, I know you’re dreading the crazy costs and fees that come along with shipping around the world. But we want to give everyone a chance to get their hands on a bottle opener. So if you are living outside the US, please message us and we will figure out the best way to ship to you. Either message us through Kickstarter or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also currently working on getting reasonable shipping rates to our friends up North in Canada!
(P.S. If you’re international and here for the early bird but need to wait to discuss shipping with us, no worries, we’ll still give you early bird pricing!)
HAVE YOU DONE ANYTHING YET?
Of course we have. We haven't just been sitting around all day drinking beers!
We knew we didn't want to launch our Kickstarter until we had a functional product. Our earlier prototypes were being bent manually which was fun to watch but meant a lot of inconsistencies. The only way to get a real sample would be to start getting the tooling made.
So we packed our bags and flew to Shanghai where we worked closely with a manufacturer to produce a working prototype.
Making a bottle opener sounds easy, right? Well, not so much. It requires a series of six stamps; one to cut the shape, one which rounds the edges, one for the brace underneath, and then three for the bends.
We decided to finance most of these stamps ourselves. And we need a little help from you to finish up the rest of the tooling and meet our minimum order for production.
WHO DID DIS?
Tian and Teague, two freelance designers living in LA at the moment, working to open our own studio called DIM SUM CLUB where we create cool projects like this six pack bottle opener!
Tian is a Chinese boy with a girls name. He studied graphic design at Art Center and his favorite studio is KesselsKramer. He hates snakes, and aspires to one day eat at the French Laundry. But for now, he’s just eating regular laundry.
And Teague is a Canadian girl with a boys name. She studied advertising at Art Center and her favorite ad is “The Bear” for Canal+. When she’s not working on the bottle opener, she’s yelling at the people on House Hunters and playing with her polydactyl cat.
SIXOVERONE has been our dream project. We love to make things and this has given us a chance to be involved in every aspect from designing the branding to prototyping the bottle opener.

Risks and challenges
The good news is that we have samples from the manufacturer which closely resemble the final product so there shouldn’t be any surprises later. We also have already gotten most of the tooling made. However, as we learned from the process of creating the tooling, nothing is ever as simple as it sounds.
The stamps were only supposed to take 3 weeks to make, but it actually ended up taking just nearly months! Since the bottle opener is just one large piece of stainless steel being manipulated, when one aspect is off, everything is off. We had to spend a lot of time making adjustments to the stamp. Although, the hard part is over, we know what often the times people estimate are not entirely realistic.
We also plan to ship by ocean freight which means we won't be able to track our shipment while in transit. We won't know it has arrived until it's here! This leaves us kind of in the dark and unable to give our backers a real estimate of when we will be fulfilling orders.
TRY NOT TO WORRY TOO MUCH
We will do everything we can to make sure there’s no set backs, and we promise to update you on any delays or complications as soon as possible.
We also plan to travel to Shanghai to oversee production, so we should be able to handle any issues right away.
We have also padded our estimated delivery just in case. So if everything runs as smoothly as we expect, you should be cracking open those beers sooner than you thought!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
