NEW MONARCH BOX CUTTER HAS UNIQUE PATENT ON SAFETY

MIAMISBURG, OHIO—Shipping and receiving departments that place a premium on safety will appreciate the sharp thinking behind the new Monarch® EasyCut™ box cutter.

User-friendly for both right- and left-handed personnel, the EasyCut is designed around one key, safety-first principle—minimizing blade exposure. It starts in the ergonomic handle, which is equipped with a patented blade-activation mechanism that automatically retracts the blade when not in use.

A simple squeeze of the trigger extends the blade into position. Once cutting begins, the user can release the trigger and allow the tension of the cutting force to hold the blade extended. Then, at the completion of the cut, the blade instantly retracts back into the handle.

Also, built into the foot of the handle, is an easy-to-use dial that sets four different blade depths: “1” for single-wall corrugated boxes; “2” for double-wall boxes; “3” for utility cutting; and “L” for safely storing or “locking” the blade inside the cutter when not in use.

Yet another reliable safety feature is the top-load blade carriage, with a loading simplicity and blade stability far superior to any conventional box cutter that must be disassembled for blade replacement. The user simply opens the cover and drops the blade into the compartment, where it then orients to a saddle closure that holds the blade steady. Closing the cover then securely locks the blade in place.

Taking safety even one step further, the blades of the EasyCut are specially polished to a dull, rounded point, protecting the user and the product inside the box.

For the ultimate in convenience, every EasyCut has both a right- and left-handed edge guide and comes with a belt holster and lanyard, so the device is always at the ready, is virtually impossible to misplace and will not wind up in the hands of unauthorized individuals. Finally, for quick blade changeout, the spine of the handle features an easy-access chamber that holds two spare blades, which come standard with each unit.
