Bottle Throttle - Conditioner by GearsOfWow Mar 30, 2013


Until conditioner bottles start getting smaller instead of bigger, picking them up in the shower may remain difficult. This is especially true when they are surrounded by other bottles; leaving only the cap available for grabbing. To offer more conditioner bottle control, I unveil the Bottle Throttle.

I thought of this thing immediately subsequent to dropping a large shampoo bottle on my toes while in the shower. The ensuing spike of pain allowed for clarity of thought and the Bottle Throttle was born. This is the companion to the Bottle Throttle - Shampoo. To offer some variety and to ensure the two handle designs did not interfere with each other when side by side, they are somewhat different. The current SketchUp model is designed for a 28mm diameter male threaded bottle opening and a 31mm diameter female threaded bottle cap.

  1. Resize in SketchUp as needed.

  2. Print. I did not find that support materials were necessary given the arch design. Leave the thing a bit rough to allow for additional grip. If your prints are very smooth on all sides, I recommend roughing up the surface a bit with some sandpaper.

  3. Insert between bottle opening and cap, leaving grips facing up.

  4. Enjoy better conditioner bottle control.

Happy Printing. ~GearsOfWow
