DropCatch is a uniquely designed bottle opener that anyone would be proud to mount. The Junior and Senior models are constructed from solid Walnut and Maple hardwoods.

See the solid Maple Senior model fill to capacity below. 

Thought has been put behind innovating an important, everyday product. DropCatch rises to the challenge with strong features in the categories below.

  • Specially selected hardwood – the backbone is a solid slab of walnut or Maple wood, chosen for their strength and beautiful, natural coloring.
  • Hand-Crafted in the USA – sleek prototypes designed by means of sawing, planing, and sanding. We are dedicated to providing the best product possible.
  • Less is more – form follows function, the opener you mount today should look just as great in 5, 10, or 50 years. The minimalist, smooth surface perfectly accents any room.
  • FUN! – no matter the user, EVERYONE will want to drop and catch over and over.

  • Quality – made with walnut or maple, steel, and high-grade rare earth magnets. 
  • Sealed Surface – three coats of varnish protects from any guest who enjoyed one too many adult sodas. The clean and clear waterproof finish also brings out the natural color of the hardwood.
  • Powerful Magnet Catch – never again will a bottle top be lost to the black abyss under your sofa. Cleanup has never been easier and a cap has never been snatched more quickly.

We appreciate all backers to this project and are excited to create a handmade DropCatch for every single person! We have the tools to create prototypes, but are lacking the necessary equipment for efficient production. It is time to spread design and quality as far as we can, and we need your help. So if you like what you see, make it a reality and back DropCatch today.

The success of this project depends heavily on getting the word out. Click our logo below to show off your new bottle opener to family and friends. Remember, every share counts.

Thank you everyone, you rock!

HUGE THANK YOU TO....

Risks and challenges

The high-grade magnets and stainless steel openers are supplied by third-party vendors and need to be shipped to our Chicago workshop. There is the possibility of issues arising with shipping. In order to prevent future issues, we have contacted the sales departments of both suppliers to confirm their ability to meet expected demand.

We are excited to begin production and make you a DropCatch!

FAQ

  • The DropCatch Senior wood plate measures L: 8" W:3.5" H: .75"

    The DropCatch Junior wood plate measures L: 5" W: 2.5" H: .5"

    Last updated:
  • DropCatch is secured by two 2.5 inch mounting screws that penetrate through the opener and into the wall.

    We strongly advise securing the screws into a stud behind your drywall, but if that's not possible we also include drywall plugs to allow mounting between studs.

    Last updated:
  • DropCatch is sturdiest when mounted on a wall and we do not advise putting on the fridge.
