Tool Safely Removes Chemical Seals
Removing the seal on chemical containers is easier and safer with EZ-Cut, a patent-pending product developed by Country Enterprises, which makes a variety of useful agricultural products.
    “It was built out of frustration,” says Cory Jensen, owner of the Minnesota business.
    As a farmer, he disliked the job of opening jugs of chemicals to pour into the sprayer. Protective gloves make the task nearly impossible; it’s hard to remove the seal in one piece, and where do you safely put the seal that likely has chemical on it?
    The Country Enterprises team created about 20 prototypes before coming up with the EZ-Cut. Part of the challenge was making it work on different kinds of seals such as foil, paper, and foam.
    The final injection molded plastic design works with them all. Just place EZ-Cut over the seal and twist it. Two blades cut the seal, which is held within the EZ-Cut.
    “It will hold 20 to 30 seals, depending on the type,” Jensen says. Later you push them out with the ejection tool that comes with EZ-Cut.
    Production began this spring, and EZ-Cut sells for $37.50. It comes in red, orange, and yellow and is available through Country Enterprises and its distributors.
