Canned drinks have had them for ever but now more and more of our everyday tinned foods has a ring pull. Opening ring pull cans is tricky for a younger person let alone anyone elderly.

They are fairly inexpensive with the average price being £3 before postage. These are also ideal for anyone who doesn’t want to break their fingernails opening the ring pull cans.
