5) The hammer technique: place the rim of the cap on top of the hammer, and grasp the bottle neck and the handle of the hammer together in your hands. Raise your hands and bring the hammer down suddenly on to the ground. The shock created when the hammer hits the ground will jolt the bottle cap off.
