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.

We bought this to use as a caution marker on the floor at a live event. The event was in a gym with a covered floor. The tape would not stick to the floor. We had to lay gray tape and then tape over it with this tape.

Not sure if the problem was caused by the floor cover or the tape.

Comments about General Brands Pro Gaffer's Tape - 2.0" x 55 Yards (White):

I bought this gaff tape for use on video/photography production set. I have to say that it is just outstanding for taping down chords; holding reflectors, and generally affixing items that need to stay put. I do not recommend for use on cats - You may need them to stay put, but they just don't appreciate gaff tape.

    Good stuff. Compares well with other makes of gaffer's tape.

    I like the white for marking out where people stand on set and for locking controls on my camera.

    After trying to save money by using dreaded duct tape, I can say that gaffer's tape is not really as expensive as perceived. It's actually cheaper and better than duct tape.

      Not to best tape I have ever used but not the worst. Gets the job done with no residue on where I applied the tape. I wouldn't use it for its sturdiness but gets the job done when applied.

                  This gaffers tape is professional. Other brands have a shiny coat/film on the front part of the tape that makes it hard to work with. This is the tape that gets the job done right.

                        I like the black because I can hide cable and stuff that might be in a shot.
                        Works great.

                            I love this tape. I use it for taping down mic cables and extension cords so people don't trip on them while I'm shooting.
                            I like the yellow because it stands out so people can see it.

                            Bought this tape for a two-day video shoot with my filmmaking students. It worked very well, was tough, but easy to dispense, apply, and remove. It left no residue on any surface. What more could you want?!

                                  White tape. Nuff said.

                                    Strong, matte, predictable tearing, and great for securing the edges of white seamless or other areas where black tape might be obtrusive. Holds just as well as the traditional black stuff. Expensive, but that's not news for gaffer's tape.

                                      I use this gaffer's tape for both photo and video lighting scenarios, and I can always count on it to do the job. Tough fabric, great stickiness (without the residue), overall great value.

                                        Good quality. Gets the job done as you would expect. Price is reasonable.
