Arrowhead water bottles have this new top that sometimes takes pliers to open!

They've got this new bottle top that's really hard to open!

I mean, it's ridiculous! I've actually hurt my fingers opening the damn things.

You've got to pull this little tab off first, but many times it doesn't pull off completely, breaks in mid-pull, and then yer stuck with a bottle that won't open correctly and your up shat creek!

That's usually when I have to get the ol' pliers out and use them to pry the damn thing open and that's when I get soaked with water! The thing *snaps* open and the water goes everywhere!

Have you seen these BLASTED things?

For Pete's sake! I just want a drink of damn water! Not break a damn finger (nail) in the damn process!

-THEEK!, INDEED!

I don't care what anyone says in that other water bottle thread, Arrowhead water is disgusting.

As for Arrowhead (despite the differing taste of CKMorpheus), I've had a few gripes with their plastic bottles over the years (handles snapping off, 2.5 gallon bottles leaking) and wrote letters to state my displeasure. Eventually I receive a cheery response with a coupon for the same thing I complained about ("you have a problem? here's more of the same!").

YOU GUYS!!!

Kirkland does taste kinda...DRY to me.

Even DUSTY at times.

...and about taking the top off, (DRG ), that's what I've done when the damn thing won't *POP* off the way it should.

On their website it's called 'Grip-n-Flip'.

-Tek!

I HEAR ya!

Strangely enough, I couldn't find any pictures online of the lil' bastard, so for your viewing pleasure I've provided the following pictures of the 'BOTTLE TOP FROM HELL':

(This is how it's SUPPOSED to work but rarely ever does...)



The little tab thing (in the 3rd pic above) usually breaks off in mid-pull, and then the top won't release and ya have to pratically BREAK the damn thing to open it.

-FOR THEEK'S-SAKE!

Who are you? Lance Armstrong? That's why I don't get the lids with the fancy sports spout on them.

maybe if you didn't have all of these BOTTLES AND BOTTLES of water in your apartment, the unit below you would be safe to live in!

You got it open, why complaining? If you're complaining about how hard to open it, suck it up and act like MAN - rip the #%&^ing top with your manly hand!

That one doesn't count because I wasn't thirsty. I only opened it for your viewing pleasure.

BESIDES...it says, 'Sometimes' in the thread title!

(That just wasn't a 'Sometimes' is all...)

-THEEK!

Okay.

Here's a 'Sometimes' and what I usually have to go through!

For experimental purposes, I worked up a thirst and got a new bottle. When pulling the tab, it broke off in mid-pull (Whereas the tip of the tab broke off too soon), and not being able to open the damn thing with my bare hands, I WHIPPED-OUT the pliers!

The rest is self explanatory:



So there you have it!

So...

1. You buy a bottle with a nipple on it.

2. You can't open the nipple.

3. Rather than just UNSCREW the cap and drink out of the bottle you use pliers to open the nipple, damaging it slightly in the process.

4. You then suckle at the now damaged plastic teat.

Just getting all that out in the open.

And typing nipple over and over.

Yeah! She'll show EVERYBUDDY it's a FACT!

AGuyNamedMike: Okay, Okay!

The pliers don't usually damage the nipple/teat that badly.

BUT SERIOUSLY FOLKS...

These bottle caps are more times than not, a ROYAL PAIN IN THE ARSE and it is my hope that you never have to break a nail opening one.

Sincerely,

Tek!

I found that as long as get a little of the tab out, then you can use moderate pressure, with your hand, and pop the top up. That is, if you're man enough.

So you see PEOPLE!!! It's TRUE!

Hey griz!

So you admit that you've had some problems with them in the past? (oh please...oh please...oh please... & & )

Truth be known, I CAN get it open without the pliers, but sometimes it hurts my fingers doing it, so I just use the pliers to save my beautiful youthful looking dish-pan hands!
