Use this handy device for removing corks and stopper that were accidentally pushed into bottles and carboys.
To use, slide the plastic retaining fitting to the top of the wires (by the handle). Insert the wires into your bottle, and turn the container upside down. Move the container around until the cork or stopper falls roughly into the center of the 3 prongs. Slide the retaining fitting down the wires, until it tightens around the cork or stopper. Gently pull the handle out of the bottle, while keeping the cork or stopper centered between the wires.
