Gave this to my mother-in-law with arthritis & she was using it like crazy at Christmas when she got it. I hope she still uses it.
Love it!

Package Opener

A safe and easy way to open plastic clam-shell packaging. Battery powered.


No one likes a gift you can’t open. Yet those annoying plastic clam-shell packages make it nearly impossible sometimes. They’re sealed tighter than a bank vault, the hard plastic can ruin scissors, and the sharp edges left behind are an accident waiting to happen.

This holiday season, save your hands, scissors and sanity with a Zip-it Opener. It’s a battery-operated device that can cut through hard plastic packaging with no trouble at all. Just attach the Zip-it to your package, press the button and guide the rollers around like you would a can opener. Presto, your items (batteries, toys, tools, fluorescent light bulbs, whatever) are free from their plastic prison, and there are no sharp edges to worry about. Just don’t try it on a can of tomatoes; the Zip-it is intended only for cutting plastic packaging and paper envelopes.

The idea for the Zip-it came from Steve Fisher, a retired dentist who used to struggle to open plastic packages for his mother. Whenever he visited her, she had several waiting for him to open. So what does a good son do? He invents something that his mother can use safely and effectively, and his family pitched in. Steve’s oldest daughter helped design the handle, and his youngest daughter and son-in-law took on operations and distribution. After two years in design and development, their invention is making life easier for all of us, one package at a time. more Their Story
