My neighbor and I made one out of a 1/4" Crapsman ratchet. Basically you take out all of the internals and grind a groove in it and presto, a cool garage beer opener.

I often just use a lighter as well, however it's tough to beat the standard bar key:

I have a ring thing. I have pretty bony fingers though and sometime worry that my finger is going snap before the cap does.
