Twisty Tie Removers

Other suggestions from the online community for removing twisty ties—according to Consumer Reports' Oyster Awards, there can be up to 50 ties on a single Bratz doll—were linesman's pliers, tin snips, and aviation shears. One user said, "If it can cut sheet metal then it can definitely cut through annoying nuclear blast-proof packaging! I've got a pair of snips in every room." Shown here are TOH editor's pick linesman pliers by Klein and Metalmaster Compound Action Snip by Wiss. About $30 for pliers and about $13 for snips; Klein Tools and Wiss Tools
