I did not find this tape sticky enough and had to bring it back for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by homemover Not fit for purpose
We thought this tape would securely hold the cardboard boxes we were using to pack up our stuff when moving house - we were wrong! It did not stick to the cardboard boxes and we ended up re-taping with brown tape. This wasted time and money. It might be ok if used on a shiny surface such as glass but it is no good for using on boxes as described.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gordon Absolutely useless - a complete waste of money
Definitely does NOT do what it claims.
Within 24 hrs the tape lifts off of the cleanest of cardboard surfaces so is useless for packaging of any type (even when taping over itself).
I bought two packs to seal up cartons being shipped to a charity project in Africa. I had to go out and buy 'proper' gaffer tape and re-tape the whole lot!!!
If this tape does not work on carboard cartons it would be utterly useless for any of the other purposes claimed on the packaging.
When you compare this product to 'proper' cloth/gaffer tape you can immediately feel the difference in quality/strength........and the real stuff actually stays adhered to surfaces, which the Homebase product certainly does not!!
