Carve A Bottle Opener Into Your House Key For Pocket-Friendly Drink Liberation

Carrying a bottle opener on your keychain has obviously useful applications, but it also means adding considerable bulk to your keychain and pocket. A user at DIY site Instructables solves this dilemma like some sort of thirst-quenching beverage god by carving a bottle opener directly into his house key.

All you'll need to accomplish this clever project is a to-be-improved key, a bottle opener (to use as a guide), a marker, a vice and a dremel. (Oh, and safety goggles so you don't get bits of brass in your eyes. Safety first!) From there it's a pretty self-explanatory process. Mark they key, put it in the vice, and cut away. Then test it. And again. Delicious.

Now you have little to no excuse for begging a bottle opener off anyone. You are the master of your beverage consumption.

    This is brilliant! If I wasn't moving in a few months and my car key didn't have a plastic housing for the keyless entry, I'd be doing it.

    Should the title be the other way around?

    Or just learn how to open a bottle of beer with anything.

    Totally just did this, practiced on one key and then completed it on another. I put the cut out on the 'toothy' side of the key though, I found that when it was on the same side as in the pictures about, it would kind of cut up my fingers/hands when I'd be opening doors.

    Works well, but its a bit useless for me since I have a swiss army knife which my keys hang off, but nonetheless looks cool!
