Zipit Electric Clamshell Package Opener: Overkill Defined

by Paul Strauss

I’m sure you’ve all had your share of frustration opening up those annoying heat-sealed plastic clamshell packages. I’ve certainly had a war-wound or two from the nasty sharp edges as I tried desperately to crack into my new gadgets and goodies. And while a decent pair of scissors or an X-Acto should do the trick, there’s something I like about the idea of an electrical gadget dedicated to the purpose.

The ZIPIt does one thing and one thing only. It shears through those awful clamshell packages like butta. Just slap 3 AA batteries into the ZIPIt, snap off the protective cover, and slide your package into the end of the cutter. In seconds, your package will be open, and your plastic entombed purchase will once again be free to breathe in the air.

Sure, devices like this one are complete overkill, IMHO, but isn’t that what disposable income is for? You can grab the ZIPIt clamshell package opener over on Amazon for about $25 (USD). Best of all, it does NOT come packaged inside a clamshell itself.
