Following the e-commerce trend, packaging and unboxing have become a frequent routine for most Malaysians and Singaporeans – from students to online shoppers and business owners. While unboxing items, it can be frustrating when the packaging tape gets wrapped or stuck on the scissors, blades or knives. At the same time, some may also resort to using more than one tool to unbox or tear open their parcels. Inefficient tools may also damage their items during the process.

The Scotch™ Unboxing Scissors from 3M – Designed with innovation at the core
- Dual-purpose design
Unboxing and cutting can be challenging if the tools damage packed items or are too blunt to cut through different materials. The innovative and versatile Scotch™ Unboxing Scissors from 3M can swap into two modes: boxcutter mode and scissors mode. Simply push the right handle down for boxcutter mode and push the right handle up for scissors mode. The 2-in-1 Scotch™ Unboxing Scissors from 3M allow users to swap between both modes within seconds.
- Cut with confidence
Unpacking or unboxing your latest purchase is like opening presents on your birthday all over again, and it can be truly exciting. However, it would be a frustrating experience if the blades accidentally scratch or damage any packed items. Worry not, as the Scotch™ Unboxing Scissors’ boxcutter mode has an exposed blade of less than 6mm. The blade is sharp enough to cut through different packaging materials, without damaging the items inside. When the scissors are in boxcutter mode, its handle is locked to ensure your safety.
