The first bloodless way to open these packages. Read the instructions and keep the blade near the edge.


Perfect tool

I love this tool! No more torn fingers, no more ruined knives, no more frustration. Just easily insert the Slitit, slide it down the side of the package, and you have an opened package. Easy-peasy. The tool I've waiting for; my life is complete!More > < Less

This ingenious device cuts through plastic packaging like a light saber! Hint: it works best when you pull the blade toward you, rather than pushing it away. I have purchased several more to give to family and friends.More > < Less

About Slitit

The Cutting Edge

The Slitit clamshell opener was born out of frustration, a word often used when talking about this tricky type of plastic packaging. Maker Caitlin Schwartz struggled to open a packaged hair straightener and even injured herself in the process. She paired up with her sister Kirsten—a fellow fine artist—and their mechanical engineer father to create a better-working and safer solution.

Slitit’s stainless steel blade is molded into a contoured, tubular handle. This design choice was a deliberate one. The handle gives you a good grip on the task at hand, plus it protects your actual hands from cut plastic shards while you’re slicing away. Best of all, this cutter is simple to use. Just line it up, push or pull along the problematic packaging, and rejoice at how much easier that was.
