That moment when you try to get out chips from the bottom of Pringles can.

If you have small hands, you might be able to get them out with ease.

Another option is to shake them out, but usually it also leads to vacuum cleaning.

In this instructable, I demonstrate a way to make a gadget that can solve these problems.

If you are Interested in the video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1:

I designed a gadget in Fusion 360

Step 2:

Then it was printed

Step 3:

I added magnets

Step 4:

I added a blade and some screws.

Step 5:

I used the gadget to cut off bottom of the can

Step 6:

Then I flipped the gadget and slid it into the can.

I attached the magnetic handle to the side of the can.

Step 7:

That's it!

Raise the handle to reach those crisps.

    presumably you could take the pringles out, drop the unit in the bottom, and put the pringles back in if you didnt want to cut the bottom off. That would keep it airtight.

    You should totally contact Pringles. This is an epic idea and a job well done. This is even better then the Pringles speaker ;D.

    Does your device seal up the bottom of the can while it is use? If it doesn't, what keeps the crumbs off the floor or table?

    Well, actually there have been times when some crumbs managed to escape, but there is an easy way to avoid it.

    I might make an improved version
