The Twist-off Bottle Cap Remover is an assistive device designed to help users remove bottle caps while having limited finger mobility/grip strength. To achieve this, the device affixes onto the bottle cap as the handle is squeezed. As the handle is squeezed, the handle will click along a number of ridges which lock the handle in place providing constant pressure even when the user stops squeezing. The handle of the device also decreases the force needed to twist the cap.
