I just printed one, and it worked right off the platform.

This is really cool. I printed one and it works well. However, now a family member wants one to fit the water bottle. What program did you design this in? Is there any chance we can get the design files too?

I am trying to print a scaled down version, but would actually like to change some other things about it, to make it fit the bottle better. And use more preciser measurements.

I'm glad you like it.

I made the part in Alibre Design, which I am a big fan of.

I just uploaded a zip file which contains an Alibre file, an exported STEP file, and a DXF file of the part outline. Hopefully, one of those will be of use to you.

I experimented with the length and thickness of the teeth to get to a workable version. I have not experimented with the angle of the teeth, I just guessed at 15 degrees.

Good Luck.

I have one "commercial" one (got it free somewhere), probably made in china. It's sometimes useful, when the cap is really tight. I'll give this a try.

Works great! Wifey likey.

Finally! Something actully useful on Thingiverse! :)

that is so stuped your freind
