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.

Does it need to be heated during application?

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

I agree with Clark that it should be possible to buy this excellent product without the dispenser, which has to be discarded each time: what a waste!

Good tape. Dispenser sucks

By

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

"Pull tape through tabs"?? The tape falls back onto the roll every time I tape something. I have no idea if I threaded the tape correctly or not. Wasted tons of tape because it sticks to the roll.

Tape works well

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

The tape depenser makes it a chore to use the tape. It needs some human engineering. How about a easy to use sturdy dispenser that you keep and buy just the tape once the dispenser is purchased

Great Tape... Horrible Dispenser

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Scotch Heavy Duty Packing Tape:

The tape is great. I am a teacher and use it a great deal to hang things in my classroom. The dispenser is the worst!!!!!! It gets stuck and or it clings to the roll and I have to find the edge of the tape to start it rolling. Bad Design.

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!

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.
