I use it alot because I ship about 15-20 packages from my home each week. I have tried other less expensive brands and it is just not worth the savings, I have returned them for cash or exchanged for Scotch every time. This is the best ever. It is strong, durable, goes on easy and TEARS easily and neatly when I want it too! It is well worth the extra cost to avoid the frustration from cheaper products. I won't use anything but Scotch, I have learned my lesson!
Thanks for such a great product! And this is just one of many that I regularly use!

It wraps and seals well. If that were my only criterion, I'd give it five stars.

However, it is virtually impossible to re-thread the tape. I just gave up: I rip off what I need and apply it manually. If only instructions were available (sigh!).

That being the case, it's completely useless to me.

Horrible dispenser!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

The tape itself is great, but the dispenser is impossible to use. I have tried every possible way, and it either won't cut the tape, or the tape goes back and I have to find the start of it again. Really really bad design!

Poor quality tape..very disappointed!!

By 

from CT

Verified Buyer

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

I ship virtually every day of the week, hence, I go through a lot of tape. I've been using Scotch brand tape for years without ever having any issues. In the last few months, I've noticed a huge different in the quality of the product. My first issue is that occasionally the cardboard center of the tape roll is distorted....my only recourse is to not use the tape dispenser and manually cut by hand....a major inconvience. Second, the quality of the tape itself seems to be substandard....it can easily be peeled off any package it's used on. My packing cartons look pristine....no glue residue, no cardboard is removed with the tape. I don't know what has changed in recent months. My description of this product if someone asked would be to say it was "removable tape." I rely on shipping tape to secure packages...the fact that it can be so easily peeled off is completely unsatisfactory. I purchase multipacks....this issue is now present consistently with each roll....poor adhesion to say the least.

Just finished packing up my Daughter for a big move. First roll of tape we used was useless. Went and got the Scotch Shipping and Packaging Tape and it lived up to its name of HEAVY DUTY!

Shreds

By

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

The tape splinters any time you try to peel it away from the roll. I've wasted 3/4's of the roll trying to get a full strip of tape out. Save yourself the frustration.

Bad Tape - something's changed in tape formula

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

This tape sticks to paper but you can easily peel if off without disturbing the paper -- extreme lack of adhesion.

Tape Changed - Doesn't Stick Well Anymore

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

My company has been using this tape exclusively for years - tens of thousands of packages shipped - and loved the small size, ease of use and quality of what this tape USED to be. Over the past few months, the tape changed - it now says "40 times stronger" and feels very different (thinner and slicker), which would be fine except that when the "new" tape is used on standard kraft shipping boxes it doesn't stay stuck!!! Really 3M? What the heck good is shipping tape that comes untaped on its own from shipping boxes??? Extremely disappointed in the changes to this product and that we are going to have to switch to another type of tape.

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

I have to open, inspect, and re-tape many packages a day at work. I bought this dispenser and tape to make the job better, and it has reduced time on each piece and made me more effective at my job. I love this product!

Big question...

By 

from Geneva, Switzerland

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

What is the mil thickness on this tape? We were surprised to see that nowhere is it specified-- not on the packaging, not on the roll, and not on the website! Given the negative reviews here about its failure to stick, we're going to return it and order another brand that does tell us about its actual thickness!

Worst Packaging Tape Ever!

By 

from Bluffton, SC, United States

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

Purchased multiple rolls (20-25) of both regular duty packaging tape as well as "heavy duty" shipping/packaging tape. Tape does not stick to boxes at all, so you end up having to go completely around each box to allow the tape to stick to itself. Even comes loose from bubble wrap. If you want to use twice as much tape as should be needed, buy this product.

Worst tape ever.

By 

from Bergen County, NJ, United States

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

We bought several roles of this for taping boxes for a move. That is all that is sold at Home Depot for this type of thing. It will not stay on the boxes. It randomly peals off at the worst possible time. Finally found something that works and IT ISN'T SCOTCH BRAND....... This tape sucks. Is it too much to ask that tape stay on?

I used this tape on boxes from Home Depot and Lowe's. After a few days the tape released from the box and I had to retake them. I don't recommend using this product.

3M-Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape with Dispenser

By 

from Staten Island, NY

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

The Tape is very thing now; not the way it was in prior years. It also sticks onto itself before you have a chance to actually tape something with - more like fly paper now. I have purchased so many times with no headaches. The Tape is not the same. It has become just a thin packaging tape now.

Does not stick

By 

from Norristown, PA, United States

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

I purchased an eight pack of scotch premium performance packaging tape a month ago. Needless to say I did not think there would be a problem. Now I can't find my receipt. I loaded a tape gun finding the tape does not stick. I tried another roll and the same thing occurred. I am very disappointed. I thought I was buying the best packaging tape for the job. I now have 8 rolls of nonstick tape. This was money down the drain!

Doesn't stick!

By 

from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

I bought this several weeks ago so I don't have the receipt anymore, but after first use found that this tape doesn't stick AT ALL. Totally dry! All that is on the dispenser is a long strip of plastic with no glue! What the heck? Would like my money back.
