I actually took back my can opener back to walmart and found a Good Cook single handed opener. Before I take a file to the can opener, maybe I will try the file on the Heineken can to see how it comes off. Thanks for the idea.

Place the opener on top of the can in position, press down on the half round wire rod that extends to the left with your forefinger of the left hand. Now squeeze the handles together to engage the wheel and cutter blade. Now hold the cutter with the left hand and keep the forefinger pressing on the half round rod so that it stays in contact with the can top. Crank away on the turning handle. What you mean you're not a contortionist :mrgreen: ????? My opener is from Kmart

Yeah if the can opener idea isn't working, and it didn't for me either, so go online and youtube it because I found a really useful video on there and was seriously at a loss because I couldn't get the top off. Anyway, I ended up watching a tutorial on youtube and got it off. The reason I was so frustrated is because I have taken one off before and it wasn't all that long ago. They must have made some design change to it.

I have not tried a recently made can so I can't really tell if there is a can change.

Some of the safety cutters tell you to start winding slightly in reverse to engage the cutter and then turn the correct way. ;)
