Enraged by Clam Shell Packaging? “Open It” May Be For You

by Theresa on January 4, 2011 · 1 comment

Open It is an As Seen on TV gadget that claims to easily cut through those tough to open plastic packages, shrink wrap and cartons. You know the ones that almost need a chain saw to cut through...These day's they've got tools, toys, DVDS and other products so tightly packed in those heat sealed clam shell packages it's next to impossible to pry them free especially with your bare hands.

I'm thinking it might come in handy since it's three tools all rolled into one. It's a retractable utility knife, interchangeable dual-head screwdriver and set of sheers. The alloy steel jaws are designed to make quick work of just about any type of packaging.

Does it work as advertised?

Yes according to two news stations WKOW and FOX 16. The "Open It!" easily cut through the plastic in mere seconds and they were able to take a DVD and toy out of it's packaging. It's also able to get into a toys small battery compartment.

There are a few precautions we should mention

Open It is extremely sharp so you if you've got kids you wouldn't want to leave them lying around. It does keep your fingers away from the hard cut plastic BUT the handle isn't very long. So you may need to keep your hand fairly close to the edge that you've just cut.
