Avoid broken nails and struggling to open boxes with the Quirky Rip Cord packing tape. This seemingly ordinary adhesive comes with a hidden secret that makes sending and receiving goods that much easier.

Running down the center of the clear packaging tape is a peculiar purple string. When it comes time to open your parcel, simply pull on the cord and watch the tape separate in half -- similar to cellophane-wrapped merchandise. The simple invention eliminates the need for scissors and knives to open your precious bundles. Despite the fact the Quirky Rip Cord is designed to open easily, there is no need to worry about your packages bursting at seam.

The clever adhesive remains a concept, but could become a reality with the company taking suggestions for retail prices.
