Personally, i like both leather and SS. If you get a machinist to mill
three 1/4 inch wide hex portions and wrap with wide spaced wet leather
strips it not only would work but be beautiful and last a decade or more.
Then just remove the old leather, clean thoroughly and do the leather

I have some Cable Hangers..which are a finger trap secured to a 1/2"
conduit threaded connector. For hanging drops from the center hole of
a blank 4x box cover. Might be easily converted to this use. They
finger trap is made from steel cable (not stainless unfortunately)
You may be thinking of Kellem Grips. I've used them for years to pull
wire through conduit or installed them as cord grips. The things work
like Chinese Finger Puzzles. ^_^
I was selling the stuff 40 years ago when I worked for an electrical
supply company. I used one a while back to fix a problem for a pizza
place where the kept ripping the outlet out of the wall for their prep
table every time they moved it to clean the floor. I removed the outlet
and installed an hospital grade cord body with a pigtail of 12/3 SO cord
anchored to the wall with a Kellem Grip which would allow the plug to
simply pull straight out of the cord body without damage. I also use the
grips to hang power cords from the ceiling in the middle of shop floors.

Good man, then you have seen them before. Thanks for letting me know
what they are called. I always called them Finger Puzzle cable grips
and the guys at the will call desk knew what I was talking about.
7. Wood handle. Find a suitable block of wood or wood pot handle.
Drill, route, bore, or auger a 1/2" hole down the center and a 1/4"
hole out the back end. Drop in a 1/4-20 nut. Slop some glue (RTV?)
over the 1/2" handle and slide the block of wood over the handle.
Screw an eye hook to the 1/4-20 nut.
8. Vinyl cap plug.
Drill 1/8" hole in tip of cap plug. Insert nylon cord through hole.
Add a washer for support. Tie a knot so that the cord doesn't slip.
Shove cap plug over 1/2" handle. Done.
9. Concrete mold. Make a wooden form for pouring concrete. Slide
1/2" handle through a hole in one end. Insert a plug that will
eventually be a hole for hanging. Add concrete. Let harden. Remove
10. Acrylic mold. Same above except using acrylic resin.
11. Shaft extender. Find a piece of steel (not aluminum or copper)
tubing with 1/2" ID. Cut to length. Pound over 1/2" handle. If you
can't get an interference fit, add glue.

I like that idea best!
I can easily find a piece to fit, and it would
look nice too!
I'd have to varnish it (it's going to hang outdoors,
but then, I can at least DRILL the hole in the wood!).
That's the best idea of all!
I had to drill some stainless steel so I purchased a small set of Cobalt
Silver & Deming Drill Bits and used Tap Magic cutting fluid.
I've had to drill all sorts of stainless steel when servicing restaurant
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
What are the odd the opener will be in use, and hanging on the wall (use for
the other hole) at the same time?

The hole is in the business end, so you can't use it.

Oh, I forgot to mention the kids!
If I just hank the opener on a hook, it will never be
there, trust, me, after just one pool party!
Like the hole punch in my office is cabled to the wall,
if I don't "string" it to the BBQ, it will not be put
back on a hook by the teens!
Then your original description of the desired outcome was incomplete /
You do not want to merely "hang the opener".
You want it to be available for use AND you want to make sure it
A different set of constraints.
Sounds like you need a lanyard system or a system to "train" the kids.
You have an amazing ability to complicate the simplest tasks and cause
threads last a very long time.
I can only wonder what the next "hidden constraint" might be.
It's not that I don't like you.
It's the fact you're an idiot & you waste people's time. :(
More money than brains.... an excellent example of the sad state of
affairs in America.
How's the oak firewood & poison oak doing?
We're all wondering what will be the next
specification to meet, on this project. Went
from "hang on a nail" to "tethered to prevent
The future modification should withstand
1000 degrees F, in case the kids put the
opener in the gas grill, to cook off the tether.
