The first double winged lever corkscrew can be traced to H.S. Heeley, who was granted British patent No. 6006 on April 23, 1888. Heeley's corkscrew was called the A1 Heeley Double Lever; it used pivoting links to "gain an improvement in mechanical advantage to pull a cork."
The first double winged lever patented in North America was created by the Italian designer, Dominick Rosati. Rosati was granted U.S. patent No. 1,753,026 on April 1, 1930 and a Canadian patent on November 25, 1930.
