Sometimes I imagine that product packaging designers sit around a huge table like Dr. Evil and his cohorts, imaging the most fiendish ways to pack electronics and other items we all buy. I would imagine the dude who said, "Why don't we just make them easy to open" ended up in the burn pit under his chair. With the holiday season coming it's a good time to check out the opening gadget for your gadgets called Open It.

Open It is sort of like a Swiss army knife for extracting all manner of new items from the package. Anyone that has tried to open a clamshell with a new gadget inside can attest that it can be a challenge complete with cut fingers. The Open it tool has long cutting jaws to snip off the edges of a package for easy opening. It can also cut through the million zip ties holding things inside boxes. A retractable razor blade cuts through those stickers keeping your DVDs closed.

Some of the stuff I get is secured to the box with little screws, the Open it has a small screwdriver specifically sized to remove those screws easily. It also has that most important of additions - the bottle opener. That way you can sit back and soothe your cut up fingers from all that razor sharp plastic with a cold beer. You can pick the thing up for $9.99 at many places around the US and online.
