Should you ever find yourself in a situation where you are without a can opener but with plenty of canned rations, the hack below could be useful.

DaveHax shows how to open a can when there’s no can opener available. If you have a metal spoon and a level surface, the right amount of pressure will help pop the top.

It’s important to mention that with this hack, you can hurt yourself by the jagged edge of the lid.

Here’s a look at how Dave does it:

  1. Grip the can with one hand and the bowl of the spoon in the other.
  2. Rub the edge of the spoon’s tip along the top of the can to make a groove, enabling you to puncture it.
  3. Use the spoon’s edge to cut around the can until it’s open.
