CLAIMS

1. A beverage can holding apparatus for assisting a person holding a beverage can of a type having a lip, a pull tab, and a drink opening, said beverage can holding apparatus, comprising:

a cam lever having a hook end operable for engaging the pull tab and a clamping end opposite said hook end, said clamping end defining a bore;

a pin positioned in said bore and defining an axis of rotation for pivotal movement of said cam lever about said pin;

a cam handle member that includes an actuator end rotatably coupled to said pin and a ring opposite said actuator end, said actuator end having an irregular shape that includes a narrow portion having a first radius relative to said pin and an expanded portion having a second radius relative to said pin and larger than said first radius;

a clamp operably coupled to said cam handle member via a linkage and having an inner surface operable to engage an outer surface of the lip of the beverage can when actuated;

wherein said cam handle member is rotatably movable about said pin between a stowed configuration in which said expanded portion of actuator end is displaced from said clamp and a deployed configuration at which said expanded potion of said actuator member bears against and urges said clamp to engage an outside surface of the lip of the beverage can.

2. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, wherein:

said pin has a cylindrical configuration that defines a throughbore that is

perpendicular to an imaginary longitudinal axis of the cam lever;

said clamp defines a channel aligned with said throughbore;

said clamping end of said cam lever defines a longitudinal bore aligned with said througbore and said channel;

said beverage can holding apparatus comprising a guide pin having a cylindrical configuration and extending through said throughbore and said channel.

3. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 2, wherein said linkage comprises said guide pin, said throughbore, said channel, and said longitudinal bore.

4. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, wherein:

said cam lever includes a lip flange intermediate said hook end and said clamping end, said lip flange being configured and operable for engaging an inner surface of the lip of the beverage can;

said clamp is positioned intermediate said lip flange and said clamping end of said cam lever;

said lip flange and said inner surface of said clamp tighten about the lip of the beverage can when said cam handle member is moved to said deployed configuration.

5. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, wherein:

said actuator end of said cam handle member includes a pair of forks spaced apart from one another, each fork being operably coupled to and axially rotatable about said pin;

said pair of forks, together, defines a notch and said actuator end of said cam lever is positioned in said notch and operably coupled to said pin.

6. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, wherein said ring has a circular configuration and defines a void operable to receive a person’s finger.

7. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, further comprising a keychain ring coupled to said cam handle member.

8. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 1, further comprising a cover assembly that includes a cover base that is removably coupled to the cam lever, said cover base having a lip portion operable for engaging the lip of the beverage can and covering the drink opening of the beverage can.

9. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 8, wherein said cover assembly includes a lid pivotally coupled to said cover base and pivotally movable between a closed configuration blocking access to the drink opening of the beverage can and an open configuration allowing access to the drink opening of the beverage can.

10. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 8, wherein said cover base includes an identification reservoir defining an open area and an identification cover pivotally movable between a closed configuration blocking access to said interior area and an open configuration allowing access to said interior area.

11. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 9, wherein said cover assembly includes a lid opening flange extending from a front edge of said lid and operable for manually moving said lid between said open and closed configuration.

12. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 10, wherein said identification cover is a transparent window.

13. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 8, wherein:

said cam lever includes a mounting knob extending upwardly;

said cover base defining a recess having a configuration operable to receive said mounting knob in a friction fit arrangement such that said cover assembly is releasably coupled to said cam lever.

14. A beverage can holding apparatus for assisting a person holding a beverage can of a type having a lip, a pull tab, and a drink opening, said beverage can holding apparatus, comprising:

a cam lever having a hook end operable for engaging the pull tab and a clamping end opposite said hook end, said clamping end defining a bore;

a pin positioned in said bore and defining an axis of rotation for pivotal movement of said cam lever about said pin;

a cam handle member that includes an actuator end rotatably coupled to said pin and a ring opposite said actuator end, said actuator end having an irregular shape that includes a narrow portion having a first radius relative to said pin and an expanded portion having a second radius relative to said pin and larger than said first radius;

a clamp operably coupled to said cam handle member via a linkage and having an inner surface operable to engage an outer surface of the lip of the beverage can when actuated;

wherein said cam handle member is rotatably movable about said pin between a stowed configuration in which said expanded portion of actuator end is displaced from said clamp and a deployed configuration at which said expanded potion of said actuator member bears against and urges said clamp to engage an outside surface of the lip of the beverage can;

a cover assembly that includes a cover base that is removably coupled to said cam lever, said cover base having a lip portion operable for engaging the lip of the beverage can and covering the drink opening of the beverage can.

15. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein said cover assembly includes a lid pivotally coupled to said cover base and pivotally movable between a closed configuration blocking access to the drink opening of the beverage can and an open configuration allowing access to the drink opening of the beverage can.

16. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein:

said cover base includes an identification reservoir defining an open area and an identification cover pivotally movable between a closed configuration blocking access to said interior area and an open configuration allowing access to said interior area

said identification cover is a transparent window.

17. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein:

said cam lever includes a mounting knob extending upwardly;

said cover base defining a recess having a configuration operable to receive said mounting knob in a friction fit arrangement such that said cover assembly is releasably coupled to said cam lever.

18. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein:

said pin has a cylindrical configuration that defines a throughbore that is

perpendicular to an imaginary longitudinal axis defined by said cam lever; said clamp defines a channel aligned with said throughbore;

said clamping end of said cam lever defines a longitudinal bore aligned with said througbore and said channel;

said beverage can holding apparatus comprising a guide pin having a cylindrical configuration and extending through said throughbore and said channel.

19. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein:

said cam lever includes a lip flange intermediate said hook end and said clamping end, said lip flange being configured and operable for engaging an inner surface of the lip of the beverage can;

said clamp is positioned intermediate said lip flange and said clamping end of said cam lever;

said lip flange and said inner surface of said clamp tighten about the lip of the beverage can when said cam handle member is moved to said deployed configuration.

20. The beverage can holding apparatus as in claim 14, wherein:

said actuator end of said cam handle member includes a pair of forks spaced apart from one another, each fork being operably coupled to and axially rotatable about said pin;
