How to open your clamshell packaging with a can opener

Posted by Temando on Thursday, October 17, 2013

There is nothing like having your new package arrive! The excitement that has been building is released and all you can think of is getting your item out and using it. However, sometimes that urge is restrained by the fact that you cannot get into your package! Yes, there is nothing worse than being stymied by difficult packaging. There is plenty of annoying packaging but the worst has to be clamshell packaging. You know the stuff, two layers of translucent plastic that mould around the item and are heat sealed around the edges. That stuff is not only super tough but if you open it the wrong way you can either cut your hand or damage the item inside. 

So your package has arrived? Yes! You are only one step away from using whatever it is that you have ordered. All you need to do now is open it up. Generally speaking that is not too much of an ordeal, unless of course it is a clamshell package. Lots of stuff is packed in the clamshell packaging these days. The clamshell has two layers of translucent plastic that mould around the item and are then heat sealed around the edges. It is good packaging in one respect, it is so hard to open that you can tell it would never open by accident. However that strength and reliability also make it a real pain to open when you actually want to open it. Lots of people have cut themselves on that packaging, loads of others have ended up damaging the item or losing pieces of it.
