If you have ever struggled to open a thick plastic package or to remove plastic strapping from a box or new product, you will love Open It!This is a product that makes opening those clamshell packages and blister packs easy.
Large difficult-to-open plastic packaging deters shop lifters, but it makes honest shoppers pay a price in frustration and sometimes even physical harm. Emergency room personnel will attest to the dangers wroth by that innocent-looking plastic packaging. I don’t know why it took so long for someone to create the perfect package opener, but it is finally here and it’s called Open It!
When in the packaging, the Open It! looks like a pair of orange pruning sheers. However, you will want to keep these in a handy place in the kitchen or main part of the house rather than in the garden. The Open It! is super-handy. The cutting blades make it easy to cut through tough plastic clam shells and binding straps. There is also a retractable razor blade and one of the handles holds a small fold-out dual-head screwdriver, perfect for opening those battery compartments.
Open It! is great for people with arthritis and other dexterity issues like carpel tunnel. Although it does require some hand strength, it is much easier than struggling with a pair of scissors.
The Open It! is well-designed, but you obviously have to be careful – it’s sharp! There is a safety lock on the cutting blades and the razor blade can only be used while holding down a lever, but you will still want to keep this grown-up tool away from children.
When I use the Open It!, I like to think back to last Christmas when both my husband and I were frustrated and infuriated while trying to open the toys for our anxious grandchildren. That will never happen again. Next holiday season, the Open It! will be ready to reduce frustrations and help keep the cheer in the holidays. I know that we will have an Open It! handy for the holidays because my husband has already declared that we will be purchasing several more Open It!s to keep handy in the garage and the office. After two weeks with the Open It! he stated it one of the best tools he’s ever used.
One more tribute to the thought that went into creating the product: the package that holds the opener actually had an easy way to open it…perforations to allow the opener to be pulled out.
