Dot Line DL-6060 Reviews

DLC Film Cassette Opener is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Film Opener You Can Buy The thing is, you can fumble with a can opener, or try prying open the cartridge in your changing bag and break a nail in the process. Or, just buy this tool that was designed to do the job right, first time every time, and be done with it. The build quality is top notch, much better than I'd expected. The first time I tried it, by feel inside the changing bag, it was a cinch. Just fit the opener over the bottom of the film cartridge and pry off. Easy and effortless. I don't know why I went this many years without it, using makeshift can openers or paint can openers that never did the job without fumbling or risking cutting your hands. If you're like me and go to the trouble of shooting and processing film by hand for a reason, then there's no reason not to have the right tool for the job. I expect to only have to buy it once, it should last me a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES! This is one of those things that you REALLY don't need. It's not a necessity. You can use a can-opener. But why use a can-opener when this cassette opener works so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I load my developing reels in a changing tent. Due to arthritis my dexterity isn't as good as it used to be. While I know I could use a cheap bottle opener to do this, the size and leverage provided by this tool makes it much easier for me to open the film canisters. So, excellent for my purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a necessity but recommended Sure you can go ahead and use a regular bottle opener but this thing just WORKS. It's simple, work just as advertised, and in my opinion, much easier to handle in the changing bag. Yeah, you may not NEED it but you'll be glad that you have it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just works! You could use a traditional bottle opner, but the only one I had access to was attached to a wine opener as well and it was just a mess trying to open my cassettes. It's a small luxury but I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential I used a bottle opener for the longest time and now that I have this, there honestly isn't a comparison. I would recommend it to anyone developing film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfect This opener works perfectly and costs little. I find it beneficial to keep a dedicated opener in my developing box rather than always looking for a house-hold bottle opener. The large tongs makes it easy to film how apply the opener in the dark bag/dark room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm If you are ready to spend a few bucks to replace your classic bottle opener when opening your film cartridges, this product will do the job perfectly and your cassettes will be ready to be reused if so you wish.
