Open Blister Packages

6/26/2019 by Dan

This gizmo is terrific at opening those confounded blister packages. However, you should note that you have to get the opener out of its own blister package first.

Okay for Some Things

I really don't feel this works as well as the older-style "scissors" for opening plastic packages.

IF you only have a plastic package to open with no surrounding cardboard, this works well. I find that with the surrounding cardboard, I don't have enough oomph to push it through.

For all plastic, it works great.

Very handy!

Works well. Hopefully, this will keep us out of the ER.

Wondering

Tried this out when I first got it. Didn't seem to work very well. Took a lot of muscle to shove it through the thick plastic packaging.

Slitit not perfect

I receive some plastic packages that don't work with the Slitit. For those with the right design, it works very well.

Disappointed

I promptly tried to use this opener and I was very disappointed. Sorry that I ordered two of them. I was going to give one as a gift.

slitit performance

6/17/2019 by josef

i give it about 2.5 grommets - it’s been very difficult, for me at least, to get the cut started - holding the package steady enough while keeping the blade aligned at the right angle not so easy — once it gets going it seems to cut ok

Does not work.

I have tried to use it every which way possible. I need more than two hands to even partially make it work.

Rip-off

This was a real rip-off in my opinion. A good pair of scissors works much better!

Does not work as advertised

Doesn't work. Won't even cut through the cardboard to get to the clear plastic.

The Slitit Story

SlitIt | Plastic Package Opener

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. Read More Read Less
