What is a Capcatcher
The Capcatcher Bottle Opener combines a traditional wall-mounted bottle opener with a pouch to catch the falling bottle cap. Capcatchers come in a variety of styles - choose an oak or mahogany base, clear vinyl or leather pouch, personalization, and much more! Our most popular style is the Magnetic Capcatcher, which has a super-strong Mega Magnet bonded to the back. This specially-engineered magnet holds tight to any flat magnetic surface, keeping the Capcatcher firmly in place while the bottle is being opened.
How do I install a Capcatcher Bottle Opener?
No tools are required to install the Magnetic Capcatcher! It pops straight on the fridge, ready for use!
If you are handy with a drill and want to install your Capcatcher on a wall or wooden surface, then our Wall-Mount Capcatcher Bottle Opener is the choice for you. The wooden base of the Capcatcher is pre-drilled for screw-mounting, and two long wood screws are included.
Not sure where you want to put your Capcatcher Bottle Opener? No problem! The Magnetic Capcatcher is also pre-drilled for optional screw-mounting, so you will have the option to use it either way. For even more placement options, add an adhesive mounting pad to your order. This lets you use your Capcatcher on non-magnetic, non-drillable surfaces such as tile, glass and fiberglass.
How do I empty the Capcatcher pouch?
All Capcatcher Bottle Openers have a Snap Flap at the bottom of the pouch. Simply place a cup under the pouch, open the snap, and your caught bottle caps will fall into the cup. Dispose of them in your recycle bin, or add them to your awesome bottle cap collection.
How will the Capcatcher make my life better?
- Convenience – No more searching in the kitchen drawer for the bottle opener.
- Injury Avoidance – No more stepping on loose bottle caps in your bare feet. Ouch!
- Social Acclaim – All your friends will compliment you on your awesome bottle opener and will sing of your brilliance throughout the land.

Everything you always wanted to know about the
Capcatcher Magnet (but were afraid to ask)
The magnet on your Capcatcher is no ordinary magnet…it is a high energy Oriented Barium Ferrite Magnet that is specifically manufactured for use on your Capcatcher Bottle Opener. With it’s high “MgOe” (the measurement of magnetic energy), this is definitely not your grandmother’s old wimpy refrigerator magnet.
Capcatchers Magnets are engineered to resist shear forces or sliding, but will come off the metal surface relatively easily if pulled straight away. The Proof is in the Pudding: these babies really hold to a refrigerator when you open a bottle but can be easily removed for emptying.
The strong pressure-sensitive adhesive that holds the magnet to your Capcatcher is “thermo-plastic”-we bake it on to permanently bond the magnet to the wood. However, this also means that mounting your Capcatcher to a hot surface such as a stove or grill can weaken the bond we worked so hard to create. A Rule of Thumb: if a surface is a little too hot for your hand, it is a little too hot for your Capcatcher.
This is a serious magnet! Do not place your Capcatcher Bottle Opener within one foot of computers, magnetic recording tape, or other magnetically encoded surfaces such as credit cards. Pacemaker/defibrillator owners should not hold the Capcatcher Bottle Opener ‘close to the vest.’ Magnetic compasses in close proximity to your Capcatcher Bottle Opener may require recalibration.
It is common for people to be a little skeptical about whether or not these magnets are strong enough to actually hold when you pop a cold one. But we think that you will become a believer as soon as you try your Magnetic Capcatchers.
