Interesting, I never knew such a thing existed. Now I need to ask myself how can I live without one with over 600 DVDs in my collection.

I always used my fingernails, teeth or some other sharp object to get the shrink wrap off. Now if they could only come up with someting to get the security seals off.

I bought two of these at Suncoast about three years ago (I don't know if they still carry them). They are wonderful little gadgets.

Now if I only knew where they were.

I'll have a DVD Empire order shipped this month so I hope I get one and don't lose it!

The CD ones often cut into the jewel box a bit and put a "score" on the plastic. If you're careful, you can avoid this... but I get a lot of used CDs with the cases scraped.

I'm not sure if the DVD version does the same thing, but I thought I'd let people know so they don't hack up their cases.

(And I have to agree with LASERMOVIES. In my life, I've probably opened about 3 or 4 thousand DVDs and CDs. I've never really felt the need for a tool to accomplish this. Opposable thumbs work just fine.)

Before I lost them, I opened many DVD cases (on the right-hand side) with them and never they marked the case.

Lacking those thumb thingies myself ( ), I find they work much better than picking and peeling and picking and peeling and...
