#492 – Blister Packs and Clam Shells + a Giveaway

Zip-it Plastic Package Opener 3

What do you do when you see your mother struggling to open those plastic-entombed packages – the blister packs and clam-shells that contain fruit or vegetables? You do what Steve Fisher did, and design the Zip-it Opener.

When I contacted Steve about the possibility of offering one as a giveaway, he kindly sent me a Zip-it Opener to test. All I can say is that I wish I had this gadget decades ago! No more struggling with those impossibly-packaged containers. Gone are the self-inflicted wounds, the grunts and the occasional curse as I try to get at the product inside – so close, yet so far out of reach.

Now, one of you will have the opportunity to have your own Zip-it Opener. No more “Wrap Rage”, as Steve calls it.

Take a look as the Zip-it Opener chews its way through this packaging:
