CSB COMMODITIES INC. is the exclusive licensed supplier of The ZipIt, a device designed to quickly and easily open hard plastic clam shell packages. It is a hand held device that works like a can opener. Simply remove the cover that protects two circular blades. The ZipIt hooks onto the clam shell package. Move it along one edge of the package and veer off at the corner, then proceed to cut along the other edges.

ZipIt was invented by Steve Fisher, who devised it for his aging mother. It is billed as the world's first and only battery operated clam shell package opener. The aging are not the only people who find opening these packs difficult, frustrating and even dangerous. The ZipIt makes it easy, and is approximately eight inches long and works well with virtually all sizes of clam shell packages. It operates on two AA batteries, which are replaceable and not included with the unit.

The ZipIt comes in a four color box. It's ideal for home and office, makes a welcome gift, and is covered by a warranty. The opening minimum order is a case of 32 units. The wholesale cost is around $10, depending on volume. Suggested retail is $19.95.
