    Has anyone noticed that 4 pack tins of beer/lager that one buys at the Off licence or supermarket, and which used to be held together with a polythene strap at the top, are now packaged with the strap halfway down. (I am in the UK - I don't know if this is a universal change).

    It might seem really petty, but this makes it really awkward to get the cans out.

    Does anyone know why they have changed this? - it's a subject close to my heart !

    The band is still there, it's just halfway down the cans now, instead of at the top just under the rims, so the band is still a potential hazard for water fowl.

    It used to be very easy to twist a can out from the strap, but now it is very awkward.

    Maybe zinj is right !

    Perhaps they just trying new things. Beer consumption has been a sharp decline in recent years--marketers trying to mix it up.
