Open says a me.


The Xipper CD opener. Ever struggled to open a CD box? You know, get the plastic wrap off? Yeah well, this puppy might be top of your wish list then. Awesomely useful. $7.95.

 With the Xipper opener, just press the button to release the safety and then pull it along three sides of the case. The small blade cuts through the plastic wrap and tape seals, making it a snap to open. When finished, release the safety and the blade retracts. Xipper also work on video and computer game cases.


  • I was given a freebie one of these (different Novell/Dell design) years ago at a conference. But since I buy far more DVDs than CDs, I’d always wished they’d come out with one that worked on DVD cases.

  • I rarely have to get the plastic wrap off anything I buy from a music store. Around here they all take the discs out of the packs before they put them out on the shelves.

    The last time I bought a bunch of CDs, one double-pack got the wrong discs put back into it and I had to drive all the way back to the shop for them to fix their screwup.
