    A church key! Handy for punching holes in Hawaiian punch back when it came in a big steel can

    You need two, one in the shop to open oil cans, and another for opening beer cans~

    Pics or it ain’t there!:cool:

    I use mine when we have the family Christmas party at our house. I tie it to a banister on the back porch just above the cooler of beer.

    I’m proud of mine, because it’s an official Schaefer beer church key. It’s a little rusty but that adds character.:D

    Yep. Have them and used them. Theres still one ( or more) in my tool box at work, my tool box at home and there is one in a drawer in my kitchen.
    Old? I call it prepared.

    And I remember having/seeing collections of them from favorite brands.

    Then there are these: (have them)

    And these: (had them, but they may be gone)

    Pull tabs- we used to break them into two pieces and use the tab as a spring and the handle as a projectile. Competing for distance and accuracy.

    It was a bit of sarcasm; I do actually get that, just that I never actually remember when cans required them.
    So it was an attempt to go ahead and date myself, but not too much. ;)

    Ahh yeah, but do you remember how to shoot a beer by opening the top tipping the can upside down over your mouth and then puncture a hole on the bottom of the can?

    That only worked on the old cans with the seam on the top and the bottom. Can opener won't work on the one seam cans.

    :D My wife and I are in our early 50s and used these growing up fir Hawaiian Punch or grape juice or V8 cans, back before plastics took over. Still have a few... She still uses them for evaporated milk or tomato juice cans when cooking.
