They look cool and work great. I use them for all outdoor projects that aren’t attached to my house. My wife doesn’t like the idea. 😂

I used milk bottle tops in my greenhouse to secure the plastic. The metal washers kept tearing through the plastic.

It is a good option. It is simple  and It doesnt cost a lot of money.

what a fabulous idea! we homebrew and tend to accumulate a lot of used caps, and it kills me to throw them away.

Just flip them over and attach to a wooden handle, and you have a dandy fish scaler.

My father's fishing friends came up with this. I have no idea how it happened. Fishing is fishing, and beer is beer. How could they possibly connect?

I use them to permanently attach guitar straps so they don't fall off when I'm playing
