A roll of 0.9" x 82' Red Gaffers Tape from Rosco is one of the most valuable supplies a photographer can toss into his gear bag or keep on the shelf. Gaffers tape has so many uses that it would take an encyclopedia to outline them all but you would be hard pressed to name one shooter who, at one time or another, hasn't relied on it to secure cables, backdrop paper, repair equipment, seal bags or mark shooting spots on the floor.
Gaffers tape is a heavy-duty tape that is easy to apply and easy to remove. The tough coating and rubber adhesive makes for a sticky tape that still tears easily and exhibits excellent adhesive properties. The cotton substrate is tough and coated with an equally tough vinyl.
