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.

          Handy strong and non-sticky tape. I don't need this item that often, so I was super pleased to learn I could get these short rolls from B&H.

              Nice and thick, sticks well. I have some guitars with nitrocellolose lacquer and the foam on most guitar stands eats the finish. I use this tape to wrap the foam so I can store my guitars on the stands. Works perfect, not slippery, doesn't stick to the guitars, and is not noticable (black). Good stuff, and in a small enough roll it didn't cost much. Perfect size for a few stands.

                  Great gaffe tape... the first two (maybe three times) you adhere it to something. I use this constantly as my carrying around roll, because it is nice and compact. It also nicely kits within a lens hood if you store your hoods unmounted from their associated lens. It'll last through readhering it once but your luck after that will be sub par.

                                      This is the best price I could find. As a musician gaffers tape is the DUCT tape that saves all!!

                                      This is a high quality tape, and an affordable price. Nothing looks as clean, or pulls off as clean when done. I feel like a nerd for loving gaffers tape this much.. but THANK YOU!!!! great product... great price!!!!

                                          I use it to stabilize my tripod for time lapse and long exposure shots. The stuff seems to stick to anything, but comes off when you need it to. Pretty simple, but big trouble if you don't have it.
