    I used this Gaff tape for big film productions and it did exactly what I thought it would do... hold down cables and wires. People walked over/onto it and it stayed put. This tape is like insurance, if you wanna make sure that you don't get sued cause someone trips over faulty wiring (cause for some reason you didn't make them fill out liability forms), buy this cause get what? On our production, no one tripped. We did not get sued. Oh! and it doesn't leave those nasty sticky markings either after your take it off. AND you can reuse it. That's what i do!

    Only down side is that it's pretty bulky but that's why you have Production Assistants right?!

    Use it to tape seamless to the floor. During a recent shoot it was used to tape the paper background to a carpeted floor. Upon removal at the end of the shoot, the tape had left a glue residue on the carpet which was difficult to remove. This is the first time I have had that happen with gaffers tape.

                Pricey, but great to have on hand. You know all those times you just didn't bring that roll of gaffer tape because it won't fit in your bag, weighs a ton, and all the other excuses. Well, now you can have little rolls that have decent yardage and fit in all your bags.

                  Comments about General Brand Gaffer Cloth Tape - Matte Black (2.0" x 12 yds):

                  I knew the price was too good to be true. Substantially smaller than standard size orders (in terms of how much tape in length you get not the width; width was as expected but after re-reading the description I guess if I bought this more often this is something I would have caught ahead of time but it's more than enough for my needs for a while nonetheless). Sticking well so far; I used this in my doorway at home to run some hdmi, tv cable, and ethernet cables and it looks great!

                      As expected it is holding a nylon cord, allowing to hang my portraits without using a meta/wooden frame.

                      My only complaint is that I expected FedEx to deliver ... it was delayed 2 days, delivery by the Postal System.

                        I use this for more than video/photo-related things now...so nice to not have the sticky gunk left over, but yet strong enough to hold almost anything.

                            I really like these small rolls as they can just tuck into a corner of my bag and weigh nothing. The tape's quality is great as well.

                            Before I made the discovery of using Gaffer Tape, I was using Old-Fashioned Duct Tape which stuck to literally EVERYTHING! The thing I love about this particular Gaffer Tape is the strong construction and ability to adhere and remove easily without leaving any residue behind. I use it primarily to hold Lighting Stands, Backdrop Poles, and Camera Equipment securely. "Works like a Charm!"

                                          For my photography uses, taping things to light stands, etc... this works great. I don't like duct tape because it leaves a residue, but this is perfect. It sticks great and comes off easily when I need it to.

                                              What can I say about this venerable product. It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and with zero complaints.

                                                  I try to stock these little roles so I can throw them in my camera bags. The tape works great and this particular role is compact which I like. I have larger roles that live in my grip bag but sometimes on a simple shoot, these little guys are easier to transport.

                                                  Bought this as a test to see if was worth it. Showed up smaller than I thought it would be, but damn does this fit into the photo bag nicnicely.

                                                      After using this little gem I can't seem to go back to using the large rolls of gaff tape. This completes the same task at a fraction of the size and weight which is important to my portable shooting style. I just pop it in my bag and I'm good to go.

                                                      The tape tears easily, (even at tiny sizes), leaves no residue and is generally a great do-it-all product.

                                                      A must-have for everyone's grip gear. You cannot go wrong with this one.
