Default Can't get a cap or small lid off?

A nutcracker will get you into that bottle of beer or jar of anchovies. No nutcracker? Open a door partway, hold the bottle sideways, put the lid end between the door jamb and the door, close the door enough to hold the lid firmly and twist the bottle just enough to crack the seal.

Thanks! I'll try this with our pepper shaker. So far we've tried a rubber jar opener and a opener that uses pressure..
Forgive your enemies - it messes with their minds.
