Hold and transport a bottle

A small specially designed assistive device for persons without active hand function, which makes it possible to take a bottle out of the cooler and to transport it

Description
The “beer retriever” is a small plexiglas plate with a section cut out for the bottleneck. A plastic ring sits on the plate through which the user inserts a finger when he wants to grasp the bottle.

In order to pour the beer the user places the open bottle in the same position he uses to cook (see associated tip).

Build instructions
Heat a piece of Plexiglas, cut it and shape it so that it fits a bottle. The ring is a wooden ring that comes from a curtain rod.
