This Italian capper features stronger construction than entry-level bench cappers, with a new trigger adjustment, heavy duty machined (not crimped) zinc crimping cup, and a weld-reinforced shaft. The new trigger adjustment is fast and positive - reach inside the capping head and squeeze the red trigger back towards the outside of the capper to release the capping head so it slides on the shaft. The trigger controls a steel pin that securely anchors the capping head on the shaft. Release the trigger when the capping head is in the desired position on the shaft and the steel pin locks it in place. Unlike less expensive bench cappers, the shaft is weld reinforced at the base with steel plates for durability.
This 20" tall steel and plastic capper will cap bottles ranging from 4" to 12" tall, including American champagne bottles. This is the original Italian-made Colt Capper, not to be confused with Chinese made 'trigger' cappers without the weld-reinforced base.
