                      When I need to secure extension cords or other large wires in high traffic areas this is the tape I grab. It is wide enough to do the job without hassle, and I love that it doesn't leave any sticky residue when pulled up.
                      The 2" wide version of this product can do the job, but not as well. I always have a roll of 2" on hand for other applications, but the 3" is ideal for securing cords to the floor to eliminate trip hazards.

                                  Hard to get too excited about tape, but it is easy to tear off, it holds well, is easy to remove, leaves no sticky mess like duck tape does.

                                  I prefer the 2in width though now that I've tried this one.

                                      We used this to tape down cords that had to run across high traffic areas. Just be sure when pulling it up you avoid letting the tape's adhesive side touch itself with your cord in it. While it will release from the floor it will not release from itself.

                                        I do a fair number of sound gigs, and this tape is nice and wide and easy to tear, which makes taping down cables go a lot faster.

                                          This tape works great when needing to secure cords and cables that pass a "walk-way." It leaves no residue behind on carpet or hard surfaces, but adheres great to any surface I have tried. Its a great tool to have when you want to rid an area of trip hazards.

                                                Held tight like duck tape with out leaving any residue or pulling any paint from walls and floors. Did not hurt "commercial grade" carpet in anyway.

                                                    Inexpensive Gaff tape that gets the job done. Easy to tear and easy to clean up.

                                                        This is a good product. Not much to rate. We used it to put down a fabric "floor" for our theater production. The tape held as it should and was easy to remove with no marks on the hard wood floor.
