Rated 5 out of 5 by Best opener ever! I love this opener. I use it for opening boxes almost every day, and it is so quick and easy. The blade comes out just the right amount, so nothing inside the box is damaged, and the shape is just perfect to fit in my hand. Plastic packaging has never been so easy to open! April 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well, easy to use - gave as Christmas gifts and everyone liked it! January 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not What I Expected As noted in another review, this item, made to open the unopenable hard plastic packages, arrived in just that! After getting it open, I saw that the front "jaws" work o.k., if you can slip it into an opening and slide it along, as there is a razor blade embedded in it. The problem is being able to first make such an opening. The small black piece slides forward, to expose a very tiny "box cutter". The exposed blade is too small to cut through a corrugated box, and it is spring-loaded, so you have to constantly keep the black button pushed forward. May 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tool Have used this opener on tons of things and it always works great! April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by very useful product First one broke after 3 years. This is a replacement. Couldn't do without it September 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by OpenX Package Opener I bought one of these as stocking stuffers for relatives. Safety is the biggest issue, and I don't want them to be hurt. I use mine all of the time. Great poduct! December 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by It really works As another review did, we immediately noticed the irony that you need the OpenX package opener to open this package! But it was thoughtfully packaged with a space at the top for easy cutting. After we opened the package, we tried it immediately and it worked! Much better than the previous product from TCS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it This gadget makes opening those horrible packages much easier. Kinda hard to store, as it is larger than I would prefer. I am very glad I bought it. September 22, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Use this all the time I have had one of these handy little tools for years which is now wearing out, I use it all the time. I was so excited to find it here that I picked up two more. It is so handy to have, the best on cardboard boxes - doesn't cut deep enough to damage the contents, just gets the tape. The bright yellow color pops out, I can see it quickly in the drawer. August 16, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plastic shell cracker More and more items are being sold in sealed clam shell packaging. This item really works for opening them. Was also pleased with how easily it cuts through shrink-wrap. Purchased one for the kitchen, one for my home office, and one to keep in the garage. Highly recommend. August 4, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by a little ironic... ...that the OpenX package opener needs an OpenX package opener to get it out of its own package. but other than that, great product. easy to use. seems substantial enough to work for several years, at least. August 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by My ''GO-TO'' package opener I have tried all kinds of things to easily open blister packs and found all of them left something to be desired...UNTIL I found the Open X Package Opener. Arthritis makes gripping most things hard for me, including scissors when opening a tough package. This tool really works, and with a minimum of effort for sore fingers. I like how it works so much I even bought one to put in my car. April 2, 2010
