Scotch Packaging Tape
NOT Sticky. Will not stick to regular cardboard.
Based on all of the rave reviews, I must have received a bad batch or something. I got a small box of these 1.5" cores on the plastic dispensers.
I took one small roll (out of the small box of them) with me to a convention, so that I could pack up everything when the show was complete.
When I put it on the first box, I noticed that something was very wrong. It would barely stick to the box. I noticed that it would barely even stick to my fingers. I then tried to seal a couple boxes with it. However, buy the time I got to the next box, it was already coming off of the previous box.
When pulled it off of the roll, it was nearly as sticky on the "adhesive" side as it was on the back.
This was huge mess for me. It was the only roll of tape I had (I only had 6-7 boxes to seal). When I got back, I noticed that the other brand-new rolls were the same.
Very disappointing. :-(

Dispensers are getting better . Have used a lot of the High Performance packaging tape. This new Heavy Tape works better it stays in place on the dispenser until you use it again. There is 200'' less inches & is skinnier now.

Tape It Up, And Ship It Out!
Scotch Heavy Duty Packaging Tape with Dispenser is outstanding! The tape itself is so sturdy that it gives me complete confidence when sending packages in the mail, by courier, or even for storage purposes. I honestly feel better knowing I am using Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape.
The dispenser is, well, dispensable! *LOL* It makes it so convenient you do not have to worry about scissors. Now, if you are like me and sometimes finish your taping work a the post office, this is the most convenient way to use the tape. I love this product!

I love the tape. Not in love with this type of dispenser. Gets stuck the wrong way and comes undone while storing.

Best Tape on the market for packages
This tape is awesome. Works on most any package material. Holds up well and can even repair damaged cartons.

Sturdy Tape & Lasting Dispenser
Several years ago I purchased this product & was amazed at how durable the tape held over heavy boxes during a move. The dispenser has held up to this day & I just buy more Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Package Tape refills since then for special occasion & holiday shipping. I recommend this product highly.

Strong, I use to make repairs and ship boxes
I have used the Scotch brand packaging tape dispenser and tape for years and I love it. It is easy to use, you can do it one handed, and once they are taped they don't come open until you cut them open.
I have used the tape to repair things like a broken center pole on my Christmas tree, that was several years ago and it is still holding.
I also ship on Ebay and use this tape to close the boxes and tape on the labels. I tape over the address section of the labels so they do not smear if they get wet plus it closes those boxes tightly and they do not come open during mailing.
In a pinch, I have also cut small strips and used it to tape wrapping paper on Christmas presents.
I can use the dispenser one handed leaving my other hand free to hold the package or item being taped in place.
I would recommend this tape and dispenser to anyone requiring the use of a packaging tape.
