Lock-N-Lift Can Opener

Company / Organization / School: RKS Design

The Zyliss Lock-N-Lift Can Opener is designed to be safer and easier to use. It locks on with one squeeze as the can is pierced, eliminating the need to continually compress the handles as with traditional can openers. Once the lid is separated from the can, you can easily lift the lid with the built-in magnet. Then, just press the release lever for safe and easy disposal. Your hands never touch the lid. When handling liquids, you can easily leave the Lock-N-Lift locked onto the can to create an instant handle for easy pouring. The curves of the handles both heighten ergonomics and give the can opener a sophisticated look and an engaging “grab me” quality that encourages users to pick up the Lock-N-Lift. The user benefits through the easier use and from the innovative magnet that lifts and releases the lid.
