COCOTAP is a patented quality product, made to last from food grade stainless steel 1.6mm tube, professionally milled and hand finished in Australia. 

It is easily re-sharpened and cleaned and can be hygienically used in premises serving the public as well as at home. The T-bar handle is hinged so that the COCOTAP folds to a straight tube for easy use and storage.

Sharpened 1/2" diameter shaft with clearing port and 5/8" diameter handle. The total length is 170mm and makes a hole large enough for 2 straws. It is perfect for the average size hand and adding cocktail mixes (if you wish!). There is a short braided lanyard for hanging, and a protective cap with cleaning tool attached for convenience.

 

NOTE: Alison from Relauncher has one of these and uses this regularly.  

 

How to Use:

Clutch the handle so that the solid side rests in the base of your palm. Use your knuckles or thumb and forefinger to stabilise the shaft while pushing and twisting the spike into the middle of the coconut. Aim perpendicular to the inner shell so that the force applied pierces, rather than skips off the inner shell. Remove by twisting out and drink through a straw.

If the coconut inner shell is too well developed to twist and push straight through, stop forcing and hold the COCOTAP handle upright. Then lightly strike the end, using a hammering device. Alternatively, invert the coconut with COCOTAP aimed at core then tap the end of the handle on a solid surface  using the weight of the coconut as the "hammer" onto the COCOTAP spike. 

Note: The COCOTAP is not designed to penetrate fully matured coconuts, except through the soft eye once de-husked. Remove the COCOTAP by the opened handle, twisting it out, then insert a drinking straw or two.

If a straw is not readily available, simply tap two holes and drink or pour directly from the lower hole.
