This is just the buy I've been looking for - self tearing tape for the small packages that I send. It's much easier to use for small boxes than a tape gun and a great deal cheaper than the same tape I've found in the office supply stores.

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!

Worst tape ever.

By 

from Bergen County, NJ, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" 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 Tear-By-Hand 2"" 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.

Sure, it starts...

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

As advertised, this tape starts easily. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about it. It sticks very poorly, rendering it almost useless as shipping tape. It also cuts very poorly using a standard shipping tape dispenser, perhaps because it comes off the roll so easily and thus doesn't provide enough tension for the dispenser to work. Ultimately, I'm extremely dissatisfied with this product.

Doesn't stick!

By 

from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" 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.

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

The tape is great but the dispenser is a joke ! And then you provide a little white paper , with the bar code trying to explain how to load the tape. The example pictures are so small you need a mag. glass to read them !

Would be a good product if it worked

By 

from Falls Church, VA, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I bought this tape to secure typical brown moving boxes. The tape fails miserably and does not stick. I've gone through several roles, and always come back to boxes with the tape hanging off, after coming loose because it does not stick. This answers the question why, if you receive a box by mail, it is encased I'm the tape. It's an attempt to secure the package. I'm sure that sales are,high because you have to use so much for every box. It's a junky product.

3650 Moving and Packing Tape (Long lasting)

By 

from Apple Valley, MN

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I just purchased the above tape and used to pack boxes for a move. This is the most worthless tape I have ever used. The tape just falls off the cardboard moving boxes after about one day. I will NEVER buy your awful tape again!

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

This is crazy!! I just want to tape a box and use the dispenser I paid for and I cant get it to thread through the slot. No diagrams or anything on the dispenser either. It shouldn't be that difficult, what's the problem?

The best! There is no other shipping tape to use!

By 

from South Jersey

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I have been shipping items for many years and after the fiasco I had today with an off brand , I will never ever use anything else but Scotch brand. I usually have a rolls on hand but fell low and sent the husband out to pick up a roll. It was the worst time I ever had sealing a package. I told him that he is only to buy Scotch brand, or better yet, I will never run out of it. Time to Stockpile...:)

Easy to Use - with so many Uses!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I go through a lot of packaging tape and I can't afford to waste time with the type of tape that refuses to become unstuck from itself. This Scotch Heavy Duty tape with the dispenser is a dream of ease and efficiency. Thanks, 3M!

Having trouble

By 

from College Station, TX, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I am an elementary teacher and use this tape for many many things in the classroom. One of the biggest uses is to tape name plates on student desks. I have never had any trouble until this year. The tape will not stay down on the desks. I bought a multi pack of tape and have tried all the rolls. I have wiped the tables with water, then the school's cleaner and then Clorox wipes. The tape comes up after each cleaning. Help! What do I need to do?

IMPOSSIBLE!

By 

from West Georgia

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

The tape itself is the same ol', same ol' we all know and love. But ... the "new" dispenser is useless. And I do mean USELESS! I fished my old, broken one out of the trash so I could tape a box up for storage. I'm going to try to saw some "teeth" into the new dispenser. Wish me luck.

Packaging Tape ripped in my hand!

By 

from Spencerport, NY

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I have purchased Scotch brand heavy duty tape for years to ship packages to my family. I purchased a 38.2 yd heavy duty 20x stronger roll again today but unfortunately, while wrapping the large package, the tape ripped in my hands a number of times. Totally disappointed and surprised. I hope it is just a bad batch. 0 51131 96134 0

Bad Design

By 

from San Jose, CA, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I buy t his all the time to seal my packages. I don't know how many times the tape keeps tearing and I can't use it. I spent an hour this morning trying to get one started and it kept tearing in pieces. This happens all the time and I have to throw it away. This is the second one this month.

Thick but no Stick

By 

from St Petersburg, FL, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

Bought this from Walmart home delivery with grocery's. It barely sticks to standard cardboard boxes. I can remove it easily from a box without tearing a layer of cardboard that you would expect. Worked for a wholesale distributor of construction supplies so was around packaging tape for 20 yrs there and have used packaging tapes all thru my life and I'm 65 now. Never seen anything like this tape... Clear to the core I guess because not much stickum.

By 

from Chula Vista, CA, United States

Comments about Scotch Tear-By-Hand 2"" Packing Tape:

I have a roll of Scotch heavy duty packaging tape. It is totally useless to me--it doesn't have any stickiness to it. I am very disappointed, not to mention being poorer for buying it. I have had it long enough that I don't have a receipt for it nor do I remember where I bought it.
