My name is Steve Fisher, the designer of
the Zip-it Opener. I invented it
because of the problem my mother had opening hard-plastic packaging. She
was in her 80s and did not like using sharp knives and was not strong
enough to use scissors (which don't work anyway). None of us like
opening these packages, and they were particularly hard for her. When
ever I visited her, she had several waiting for me to open. I have cut
myself and the product I was trying to open using exacto type knives. I
wanted to find a safe and easy way for her to access the merchandise she
was purchasing that came wrapped this way. I have been working on the
problem for almost two years and am happy to offer you the
Zip-it Opener as the solution. This is a family affair. My oldest
daughter helped design the handle, and my youngest daughter and
son-in-law are handling the operations and distribution.
Opener solved my mothers problem and it can solve yours too. It
is as easy to open these tough packages as pressing a button and guiding
the opener around the outside of the package. There are no rough or
sharp edges left to worry about. It is powered by two AA batteries, and
holding down the button will activate the rollers to easily open most
hard shell packages. We know you will find this opener handy and easy to
What it is! This opener is designed to open Plastic Hard Shell
packaging or Plastic Clam Shell packages. It wont open them all, but
easily handles the majority.
What it is not!
This device should not be used to cut anything but plastic clam shell
packaging and paper envelopes. It is not to be used on metal, wire, cans
or any other solid or hard material.
Guard: On occasion, it might be necessary to remove the tinted
plastic cover over the roller blades to cut the edge off hard shell
plastic packaging due to their shape and size. Use extreme caution in
this process as the blades are sharp and could cause bodily harm. The
guard is removed by rotating it in a counter clockwise direction, and
replaced by reversing this process.
2 AA Batteries (sold separately)
power the opener. They are connected by lifting the top of the handle
off and placing the batteries in the proper direction.
Please read the instructions and
watch the video. They will give you tips on using the
Zip-it Opener more effectively. The Opener will not cut through
deeply grooved packaging, but you usually can get them open by following
the advice in the manual. The basic idea is to avoid the corners! Cut
into the package along the side and out again before encountering the
corners. You then can usually go back and cut off the corners if
necessary to remove your merchandise.
