The Greatest Innovation In Packing Tape Since The Sticky Side

The Greatest Innovation In Packing Tape Since The Sticky Side

If you’ve ever marveled at how easy it is to open a padded shipping envelope thanks to its built-in rip cord that tears through the material, you’ll instantly understand why this enhanced roll of packing tape is pure genius.

The aptly-named Rip Cord tape has a thin plastic strip running down the middle that can be used to easily split it in half, freeing you from having to use scissors, or even a sharp knife that has the potential to also slice through to what’s inside the box. The tape also comes with a special dispenser that includes a perforated cutting edge that leaves a tab at the sliced edge so it’s easy to grab and yank the cord. So here’s to hoping that Quirky can make this concept a reality, and soon.
