Clamshell Packaging Has Evolved

The Click It Clam™ was born out of a worldwide need for more user-friendly clamshell packaging. As a thermoformed plastic manufacturer for over 50 years, Jamestown Plastics was in the perfect position to reinvent and improve the clamshell.

With Click It Clam packaging your product is more secure, easier to access, and it looks better on shelves. More importantly, your customers don’t need a chainsaw to get into a Click It Clam.

The History

The Click It Clam™ was born out of a worldwide need for more user-friendly clamshell packaging.

As a thermoformed plastic manufacturer for over 50 years, Jamestown Plastics™ was in the perfect position to reinvent and improve the clamshell.

The Challenge

Clamshell packaging is notoriously hard to get into. The world needed clamshell packaging that can be easily opened yet exceptionally secure.

Be sure to check out all the trials we put the Click it Clam through on our YouTube Page!

The Solution

The patented technology is centered on a button closure that produces an audible *CLICK* sound. Through the utilization of shear force, rather than friction, Click It Clam™ packaging will not open until the end user pushes a small tab with just a thumb. Think of it as turning a door lock each night instead of nailing the door into the door jam, which is what traditional clamshell packaging is like. To prove this, we filmed ourselves dropping a Click it Clam™ from the roof of our factory.

The Options

Click It Clam™ packaging comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. Click It Clams™ can have compartments, stands, seals, and even a magnetized backing for easy storage while working.

To take it a step further, though, we’ll make a custom Click It Clam™ for any type of packaging need. Fill out our three question form, and we can talk about your custom packaging needs.
