Dan writes: “This time of year in Canada, it’s Tim Horton’s ‘Roll Up The Rim To Win’ time, which means millions of people buying way more coffee than they usually would in the hope of getting free stuff. Someone’s finally come up with a tool to ease the otherwise fiddly task of unrolling the rim of disposable coffee cups. It’s specialized, but if you drink as much coffee as some people do, probably worth every penny of the $1.95 it costs.”
The photos above (from Lee Valley) explain this better than words can. And for those in the States, Tim Horton’s is a coffee and doughnut shop.
Dan also mentioned (and we agree) that Lee Valley’s page (link below) “shows an admirably positive attitude towards inventors” — very apropos considering the discussion of the CO2 nailer power pack here at Toolmonger recently and the AutoWrench a while back.
