    A dull knife? But give yourself plenty of time to hack through the tape? Or get the box soaking wet until the cardboard disintegrates. Shouldn’t take more than a week, right? Failing that, you’re on your own.

    Please rip, tear, spindle and mutilate? (The saying is possibly from well before your time, but what the he…ck.)

      (You’re right; I had to look it up. Once I did, I recognized the reference. It was used so many places!)

      I think spindling might be exactly what this warning recommends…

    Scissors pushed in from the side?

    Where are the dull instruments when you need them?

    Pianos are not very sharp. Try one of those.

    I feel an International protest by the instruments of the world in the wind… Clarinets, pianos, drums, and guitars, UNITE!

      I’ll admit to not having much in getting it open.

      Maybe they never want it open.

    Lol. I guess you have to open it with a dull instrument, or steam off the tape, or soak the cardboard in the bathtub until it disintegrates. Good luck!

    At least you could ignore the warning and just use the sharp instrument carefully. The worst are the ones that are so encased in packing tape that you almost need a chainsaw to liberate the contents. People seem to pack things either with a single piece of tape or an entire roll.

      Oh my gosh yes! One of the companies we use always wraps their box so there’s more yellow tape than box.

    Painstakingly peel off the tape. Or give it to the kids and let them problem solve. Cannot guarantee whatever’s inside will be in one piece.

      That’s pretty much how every package gets ‘processed.’ 🙂
