Red line Box opener / tape

Red line Box opener

Tape design that makes box opening easier.
Boxes must be sealed with tape in order to pack goods, so additional tools such as box cutters and scissors are needed when the customer opens them, which is very inconvenient. This new tape design is expected to resolve this inconvenience. This design consists of a standard tape with a red line running down its center like stitching. When the red line is pulled, the tape splits along it, allowing the box to be opened with much less effort. The red line contains gaps at regular intervals, which makes it safer and also easier for any user to grab with fingertips.
