The original pull tabs weren't very strong. I was riding in a non airconditioned car in the Coachella Valley on a very hot day and the Pepsi cans expanded, so the tabs popped popped, spewing cola on the ceiling of the car one by one.

On the TV series "EMERGENCY!", The paramedics came to the rescue of a man who had a habit of putting the tabs into the can. He nearly died because he almost completely aspirated one of those tabs.

In the 70's in Michigan, people who did crafts used to take pull tabs and crochet hats around them. You could buy them at every flea market.

HA! I remember those "aluminum curtains" but didn't have one myself. (Mine was of hollowed out bamboo canes strung together in alternating lengthwise and crosswise bits.)

The city of San Francisco asked the makers of those tabs to alter them. People discovered that the ring, with the tab removed, could substitute for a nickel in that city's parking meters.

Who all had doorway curtains made from chains of these?
