Featured Gear Friday: Bottle Cap Caddy

Since starting this tailgating blog back in 2007, we have tested, tried and demonstrated a lot of tailgating gear and written a lot of tailgating product reviews. Some good and some bad. But because we are a blog, a great product we discovered two years ago may be lost in the tons of posts we have published after discovering it. Maybe you are a new reader and haven’t had the time to pour through every single post we have done in the past three years. So in order to help out the tailgaters that might not have read about some of these cool tailgating products, we will be doing a weekly feature on products we reviewed a while ago. We call it Featured Gear Friday and this week’s product is The Bottle Cap Caddy.

Bottle Cap Caddy

One of the things I hear the most while out tailgating, whether it be from someone within my party or a tailgating neighbor, is, “do you have a bottle opener?”. A bottle opener is a tailgating essential. The problem with regular bottle openers is they are small and someone usually puts it in their pocket or puts it down somewhere that is not where they found it. You spend more time searching for the bottle opener than you would enjoying your beer. Now comes along the Bottle Cap Caddy. Not only does the Bottle Cap Caddy mount to your cooler or any other surface, it also is environmentally friendly in that it catches the cap in a rubber container.

I have my own Bottle Cap Caddy and have made it a part of my regular tailgating kit. I have chosen to install the Bottle Cap Caddy on the underside of my beverage cooler lid. That way the sides stay smooth and I can pack other items right next to the cooler without fear of the Bottle Cap Caddy scratching or gouging my other tailgating gear. Plus, when you go into the cooler and grab a bottle, the Bottle Cap Caddy is vertical and ready to use.


The other thing I really enjoy about the Bottle Cap Caddy is the rubber receptacle that catches the caps. No one wants to have bottle caps littering up their tailgating space and the Bottle Cap Caddy grabs them all. It is easy to lift off the stainless steel opener and when full, just dump in the trash or recycle them. When the tailgate party is over, take the rubber catch container off, pop it into the dishwasher and you are ready to go for the next time out.

A single Bottle Cap Caddy is $9.99 plus $4.95 flat rate Priority Mail Postage. Three (3) Bottle Cap Caddies can fit in a single U.S. Postal Service flat rate box so if you buy two or three, the postage is the same. Each Bottle Cap Caddy comes with the stainless steel bottle opener, two stainless steel screws, the double sided tape on the back of the opener and the EPDM rubber holder that catches the caps. Getting a Bottle Cap Caddy means never having to ask, “who has the bottle opener?”.

You can get your own Bottle Cap Caddy HERE. Their small size and functionality make for a great stocking stuffer for those tailgaters on your shopping list.
