Oh, the good ol’ days of careless hours playing “caps” with friends, freely flipping those tiny tops of crimped steel into red plastic cups. Now, for the many of us who no longer flip our lids for game or sport, there is a new, practical and fabulously functional gadget that eliminates the “beer bunnies” typically left on kitchen counters, bar tops, floors, or even under sofa cushions.

Today’s featured “DIY Goods, Gadgets, and Gizmos” is the “Cap Catcher“, a bottle opener, bottle cap catcher (hence, the name!), and holder of up to 30 caps, all in one. Instantly, I said to myself, “Yes! No more picking up stray caps left in the kitchen or finding them underfoot in the backyard from that party three months ago!” In fact, this cool home goods gadget is perfect for parties where guests can help themselves to a beer (or capped root beer) all the while keeping things neat and tidy for easier after-party clean-up. It also makes for a fantastic hostess/host gift, especially for game night and all those BBQ parties coming up this summer.

According to Industrial designer, Stefano Di Lollo, this latest creation for the Trudeau Corporation came to him while brainstorming in a trendy coffee shop in downtown Montreal, and like many of his ideas they “can hit like bolts of lightning at any given time.” So much so, that Stefano sketched out his initial ideas on a napkin.

Final product, caps and all!
