Singlehanded Plastic Bottle Opener / Tools for Daily Life

Singlehanded Plastic Bottle Opener
Singlehanded Plastic Bottle Opener

The Opener is designed for the disabled with just one arm, or someone who can't use both hands at the same time.
The opener is mainly made up by two handles and two open loops, connected by an axle and cogwheels in the outer panda shape, to call for people concerned about a few special groups like panda facing a difficult life. When applying pressure to the handles, the cogwheels rotate, leading to the rotation of other cogwheels, and the rubber adhered to the working cogwheels helps to increase the friction of the bottleneck and the bottle cap. The bottleneck and the bottle cap rotate opposite each other, and the bottle can be opened.
