PULL TABS & STAY TABS 12oz
In 1962 Ermal Cleon Fraze of Dayton, Ohio invented the pull-tab, which had a ring attached at the rivet for pulling, and which would come off completely to be discarded. In 1963 he licensed his invention to Alcoa and Pittsburgh Brewing Company. It was first introduced on Iron City beer cans by the Pittsburgh Brewing Company.

Stay tabs were invented by Daniel F. Cudzik of Reynolds Metals in Richmond, Virginia in 1975. Stay tabs almost completely replaced pull-tabs by the early 1980s, helping to prevent the injuries and litter caused by removable tabs.
