Introduction: License Plate Cap Catcher

About: I'm not an expert in anything. I just enjoy making things sometimes for the process sometimes for the end product.

Video link below, for some reason video link above doesn't work on mobile. I'm new to instructables so I might be doing something wrong.

In this video I make a cap catcher from an old license plate. These are fairly easy to make but you do need a pair of tin snips to make the cuts. The vise helps make the bends but you could use a 2x4 to help make the folds. I use a pop rivet gun to make the connections however you can use a small machine screw to make the connections which I have done in the past. If you don't have an old license plate you can use a thin sheet of aluminum or steel. Home depot and Lowes both sell small tin metal sheet goods. I believe they have them as small as 6in. by 18 in. If you do go this route then you can paint it however you like. This is a pretty quick project to make and make great gifts for any beer aficionados or just guys that like to pop a top every now and then. I hope this video inspires you to make your own.
