Product Description

It’s designed to cut open tough plastic packaging - you know - the kind that seems to be popping up everywhere from general household items to toys to items for the office. It’s so simple to use; just align along the package flange, pull the trigger to puncture the plastic, then pull along the side and open. Plastic packaging is typically sealed along the edge using heat. This creates a hard edge that is nearly impossible to tear open

By R. Ostergren on August 31, 2009
I made a large purchase of computer parts that arrived in the heavy clear plastic containers and dreaded opening the containers with scissors or a knife or box cutter. A friend offered me a smaller package opener that would have worked okay for occasional use but was too cumbersome for what I needed. I ordered the Open Smart Package Opener and it worked like a dream in opening the packages. It would have taken me days to open all those containers but only a few hours with the Open Smart Package Opener. I would love even better to have an all metal version of this opener though.

I buy an awful lot of stuff packed in those dreadful clamshell bisterpacks. Before I purchased this item I would curse like a drunken sailor in a bar room brawl every time I had to open one. More than once have I actually damaged the product I was trying to set free. This Open Smart Plastic Package Opener has been a Godsend and soon I'll will be able to leave the sanitorium that those clamshell demons put me in. I seem to be more sociable and have many more friends. This item has changed my life. I reccommend it highly.

Have had great luck with this when I have used it. I have a lot of trouble getting the packages encased in plastic open. This makes it safe and easy.

This clamshell opener works so well that I'm planning on getting one to keep in each vehicle glovebox. It is extremely easy to use, and much better than trying to cut open that nasty plastic packaging with scissors.

I was a little skeptical when I first bought this opener. It took about two minutes to relieve all of my doubts.
Read and follow the directions and you'll be slicing those clamshells in no time. It works with less effort than I anticipated. Pay attention, line the device up the way the directions show and then slice. Usually one slice down the side and another along the bottom and you will be able to get your treasure out of that evil clamshell.
One product that was more than worth the price.
I very highly recommend this to everyone.

This is a great little tool. I've bought one for my mom, mother in law, sister and sister in law. They all had to have one when they used mine at Christmas to open toy packages!

It worked (sort of) on the first package I used it on. It had trouble with the corners of the package, so I had to cut those off with a scissors anyway--which defeats the purpose of this device. But the really troubling thing is that on the exact same packaging (of a second item I bought) it stopped working altogether. The little blade failed to even puncture through the clamshell plastic! It seems that the blade is too flimsy (or the cheaply-made plastic housing) to stand up to repeated use. It appears to slightly bend sideways when you squeeze the handle rather than puncturing through the plastic. Repeated attempts have all failed. If it cost more, I would have already returned it. Save your $8 and try a different clamshell opener!!!!!!!

The instructions that come with it essentially tell you not to try to turn corners with it, just slit the straight sides and not do the curved corners, so that is not too handy, although you can usually get a package open without shedding too much blood from the sharp edges of plastic that you are trying to tear the corner off. The little DVD openers work fine on the thin plastic on a DVD cover, but NOT on the white theft prevention sticky seals, the box collapses just enough that the teeny "knife" cannot cut it. So you have to peel off the theft prevention plastic just like as before.
