      Comments about General Brands Pro Gaffer's Tape - 1.0" x 55 Yards (Black):

      I use gaffers tape to add extra security when using speedlites on light stands. The speedlites will not fall off the light stand if someone bumps into the stand. The tape does not leave any residue on the speedlite and comes off easily. The same piece of tape can be used again a few times.

          This tape is great! So great, in fact, that someone apparently keeps stealing it for purposes unknown. Which is annoying! Then I buy more. Because I need it. I use it mostly for product photography but I can only imagine that my unknown kleptomaniac is using it to mend frayed wires or hang up photos of kittens. Not his kittens, mind you, because this person is all about other people's stuff. That guy is the worst, but this tape is pretty darn good. It's like the other one I bought and reviewed, just, you know, thinner.

              It sticks when you want, and comes off when you want. It's cheap to buy. Always have a roll in your pack.

                If you're in professional audio or video, I don't need to tell you that gaff tape is a must. If you don't carry a roll or two with your gear you've been selling yourself short. Great for all sorts of things, taping down cables, holding stuff together, taping mics to podiums, making traps for small animals, etc.

                    I love this tape. It is so handy for photographers. You can position things with it and when you remove it, there is no sticky mess. I use it on flower photography to hold unwanted items out of the way. I use it to keep track of my lens cap. I use it to keep the light out of the view finder when shooting tethered.

                    So far, I have found no downside to using the tape.

                          the more expensive brand rip a little easier and are less likely to leave residue
                          but considering that this is just and expendable it works fin.

                            Lots of uses for gaffer tape....its very strong...I have used it in the past to tape Vivitar 283 flashes with slaves to a wall..works well!
                            I recently returned a wireless transmitter that wasnt consistant in triggering and use a tiny piece to tape my pc cord to my camera so it doesnt fall out..works like a charm.My studio is small so I dont really mind the cord...
                            I use it to tape fixtures flat on my murphy bed before closing.
                            Ya just gotta have a roll of gaffer tape around! Every photographer already knows that!
