          Sure you can go ahead and use a regular bottle opener but this thing just WORKS. It's simple, work just as advertised, and in my opinion, much easier to handle in the changing bag. Yeah, you may not NEED it but you'll be glad that you have it.

            This opener works perfectly and costs little. I find it beneficial to keep a dedicated opener in my developing box rather than always looking for a house-hold bottle opener.

            The large "tongs" makes it easy to film how apply the opener in the dark bag/dark room.

                Comments about Dot Line DLC Film Cassette Opener:

                I started Caffenol development recently. I have been enjoying the developing process except the part of opening the film canister.... I was using a regular bottle opener which works, but takes quite a few try and elbow grease. I even broke my nail doing it, so I decided to invest in the actual film opener and I am thankful that I did it. Much easier. Looks like bottle opener, right. But it just works better!

                      Bought this after using a regular bottle opener to open a cassette. Bottle openers are for bottles. This is the tool to open a cassette without damaging it or your film in the process. its cheap to purchase and it works well.

                        This product is extremely easy to use and efficient in opening a film cassette, being much more reliable than using a can opener. It is awkward to handle at first, but once you figure out that the stems sticking out go on the actual cassette, it's a breeze to open them up.

                        I used a bottle opener for the longest time and now that I have this, there honestly isn't a comparison. I would recommend it to anyone developing film.

                          This is a great gadget. It may take a cassette or two to learn how to use it but once you do it is easier and a lot safer than unsing a bottle opener. The wide top prevents the metal caps from cutting your thumb and the tool gives you leverage to pull the caps right off.
