THIS. This I may need to see a YouTube video detailing how it was done. I am impressed and in awe.

+1 on the table edge. If we are camping (in a tent) and the campground has those metal fire pit rings, those work really well.

Any edge that comes to a nice 90° angle will work... but only if it is hard, and/ or expendable.
Do not do this on your friends new granite or composite countertop! I have left big bite marks in some wooden surfaces I have tried this in.

In my younger days I drove a '68 beetle. I seem to remember there were about 6 or 7 places I could pop a bottle like using a wall mounted opener. There two places on the bumper and the rims worked too.

Old rims are great but on some cars on the seat belt will work. If you have a seat belt that there are slots instead of rounded holes on the buckel you can use that.

I saw that one too and am considering getting it as well for my tool chest. The wrench stays in the kitchen.

ONLY wrong because it's clearly a twist-off in a non-twist-off thread. Other than that, get-turned-on away brotha!
