Heading to your buddies place to sling back a 6 pack and jive about the work week isn’t exactly a challenge.  However, if that cheap cardboard happens to rip due to leaked beer during factory to store transport, it’s likely you’ll show up with a few less beers.  And we all know this kind of accident never happens in the store as you stand amongst a sea of beers, not to mention employees.  It’s when you arrive at your destination, pull the sixer from your trunk, and rip, the beers make a dash to the concrete that lays below.

The 6 Packer is a laser cut beer bottle opener.  We suppose you could put soda in it too, but that just doesn’t seem fitting.  It’s constructed from of 3/16″ thick laser cut ply wood and assembled with 4-40 1/2″ screws and nuts.  The holes are designed to hold a wide variety of bottles, so long neck or fatty, so it won’t matter what you drink.  The 6 Packer ships unassembled, which is good, since being a man means building stuff.  Or should we say “being more of a man” means building stuff.

You can score the 6 Packer for $30, though it’s currently sold out.  If you happen to have your own laser cutter you can download the plans and make one yourself.
