Today in 1992, US Patent 5133233 A was issued, an invention of Charles M. Erwin, for his “Bottle Opener Glove.” Here’s the Abstract:
Bottle opening tool having bottle cap-engaging hook and end fulcrum bar, each secured to a rigid back plate, is incorporated into the palm of a glove. Back plate is shaped to conform to the shape of the palm of the wearer hand. Bottle cap is removed by back of user’s hand applying lifting force to glove. Entire bottle opening tool member fits within palm of glove, thereby leaving fingers unrestricted to movement both while opening bottles and when not being used to open bottles.
