Colt Bench Capper
Featuring stronger construction than "beginner" bench cappers, this Italian made brew tool has a new trigger adjustment, heavy duty machined (not crimped) zinc crimping cup, and a weld-reinforced shaft.
The new trigger adjustment is quick and easy:
To adjust reach inside the capping head and squeeze the red trigger back towards the outside of the capper to release the capping head so it slides on the shaft. The trigger enables a steel pin that safely anchors the capping head on the shaft. Release the trigger when the capping head is in the desired position on the shaft and the steel pin locks it in place. Unlike less expensive bench cappers, the shaft is weld reinforced at the base with steel plates for durability.
This is the original Italian-made Colt Capper, not the Chinese made 'trigger' cappers without the weld-reinforced base.
At 20" in height, this steel and plastic capper will cap bottles ranging from 4" to 12" tall, including American champagne bottles.
Caveat Emptor: This capper fits 26mm American bottle caps only. This capper will not fit larger 29 and 31mm European caps and the optional crimping cups for the other bench cappers do not fit this model.
