I show how to open a tin food can using only my hands. It’s pretty easy to do but may take a few minutes. It took me about 4-5 minutes to get the can of beans open. Of course if you have a can opener or other tool it will be much simpler to use that, but this is for situations where you do not have those. To open it you are basically taking the tensile strength of the midsection of the can to its failure point by bending it back and forth. This could be useful in disaster situations, floods, zombie apocalypse, and camping if you don’t have another way of opening canned food.
