Ratchet easy-to-use tin opener

Product code: DK170
This ergonomic tin opener is particularly good for those with limited dexterity, as its ratchet mechanism removes the need to twist.

This tin opener is also hygienic as it does not need to touch the contents of the tin.

Special orders

We work with partners to deliver products on our behalf. We will pass on your contact information to be able to deliver the product effectively. Whilst delivery is usually within seven days, it may take up to six weeks.  

Articles for the Blind scheme

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under Royal Mail's "Articles for the Blind" scheme.

However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items. Therefore we have to use alternative delivery methods, such as courier and Royal Mail services, for higher value orders.
