Sued? I think they should be sewed!
I agree that when it works it’s a thing of wonder and no frustration. Otherwise, give me a knife, machete, and maybe a shotgun to get the bag open
it’s not the inventor it’s the clown that tries to make it so
Someone who hated his fellow human being. I say that from experience; I had a summer job during college and I got so fed up with the failure rate of these damn things that I started carrying a knife come feeding time.
Yeah - into a bag and chucked in the nearest river.
the same guy that invented string pulls on tampons???
I doubt that was a guy...
Would it be so difficult to color the string you are supposed to pull red, or put an instruction manual on the bag? It just doesn't need to be this difficult. I think they just do it to make city-slickers look like fools.
I think the frustration is suitable for most all "ez-open" and re-sealable packaging. Most of it is a bad joke and unnecessary added expense we would do better without IMO.
As Tampax tells it, a Colorado-based general practitioner named Earle Cleveland Haas introduced the first commercial applicator tampon. Haas obtained a patent in 1933, and combining the terms “tampon” and “vaginal packs,” he called his product Tampax.
The best easy pull tab is a pocket knife
I am so happy to see this thread as I thought it was me - I have had like maybe 2 work our of 100 - and so 98 times ended using knife or brute tearing force
Either one would be fine
I love it when I’m out feeding animals and the lightning is splintering trees and the rain is coming down so hard that I expect to have to swim from the corral or barn to the house when I’m done and the water is flooding my boots and the wind is howling and cutting through my bone marrow and I have to keep wiping the rain out of my eyes and I pull the E-Z Pull tapes on the feed bags and they all bind and knot up because they’re soaked and then I have to fumble for my knife to cut the bags open.
It’s times like that when you really appreciate the invention.
Don't get me started on packaging!
Try to open one of those inner cereal box bags lately?
Or something from the Hardware store in a blister pak?
They must send these packaging engineers to the same school they send the traffic flow designers and the sound engineers!
Those sewing jobs are the reason that so many pocket knives have been made and sold in America. The pull threads fail to work properly more often than not in my experience.
They have been around so long now that the patents on them have lapsed, but someone might have invented a better machine. I have not seen one of those handheld sewing machines in a long time. I need to look them up to see if they still exist, what they look like if they do, and whether some idjit has managed to add a chip, PCB, and LCD screen to it.
I do not miss working in a feed mill or handling large sacks of feed. It is loud and dusty, but at least there were crapping pigeons and rats to battle. But I would like to have the fitness, strength, and endurance I had back then.
The alternative is even worse. My dog's food company has just switched away fro EZ-Pulls to a folded-over, laser-welded seam. There simply isn't any way to cut it open elegantly and the resultant opening doesn't pour worth a darn.
The ones in the op look like the ones on kitty litter bags. Even though the bags are paper, I don't even bother and just go for the scissors.
The strip makes it easier then years ago when the burlap bags we used were simple sewed. My father could open almost every time, I struggled.
