I enjoy looking for new ways to use plastic pop bottles in whatever way I can. Particularly because they appear to be an endless resource. One problem is that they often need to be braced somehow, especially when inverted. It is easy enough to drill holes in horizontal flat surfaces, but flat surfaces are not always available or practical. Four inch hole saws are also expensive.

This led me to come up with this handy little piece that I thought I would share. It is simple, versatile and can be adapted to a variety of bottles or situations as required.

This instructable will also allow me to refer to this in future instructables, rather than describe in detail on some off topic tangent each time I use one, thus preserving their linear progression.... hope that makes sense.

Ps...If rust would be an issue over time, use coated wire or something else.

Step 1: What You Need

1 ea Wire Coat Hanger
1 ea 2 Litre Pop Bottle
Fasteners as req'd
1 ea 4" Ring Clamp (optional)

This is one of those "head-hitting-ideas," where you slap your head and say "so simple and effective . . . why didn't I think of that?!?" Thank you for sharing this.
Love it, simple and effective. I will use this to drain the last bits of motor oil out of the containers when I change oil on my cars. Great idea!
Thanks. Uses I could not think of... and a green one too! You've made my day.
