this product packaging was so difficult i was laughing all the way to the tool drawer. not only is there some of that impossible and dangerous plastic that is impossible to open without getting cut, the whole container was sealed with philips-head screws! this item doesn't have much theft potential, its a mail order cable for connecting video equipment! how about something that the customer can open safely without tools and then recycle?

marhawkman: pliers. :) But yeah, that's silly… It might make sense it was a some what fragile item.
Design Packaging: Definitely not the most practical packaging.
