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.

Very good tape

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

Strong tape very sticky adhesive that comes off with the tape so no big cleanup problems. Tears straight. Great for sealing around snoots and other light leak issues. Use instead of duct tape.

Excellent

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

I use it for night photography to hold the settings on my Rokinon 14mm. Keeps everything locked tight, so there are no accidental movements of the aperture ring or focus. This is the first time I have used gaffer tape. It is true, there is no adhesive residue.

At Some Point You're Going to Need Tape

By The Curious Lens

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

I use it for taping down my tripod since it's so light. I love the mini-roll because it's not too big and heavy for my case. And I can even re-use some of the tape if it hasn't been used on carpet. The stick power is not the strongest I've found - there are other gaffer tapes that have more sticking power, but it's still good.

Does what it should!

By Dave

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

I have used this tape to tape down (to concrete) electrical cords in my garage work area. So far, it has worked like a charm. I have no reason to think it won't continue to do its thing. I have in mind a couple of other uses for it as well.

A must have in any bag

By Juan

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

It feels good when you find uses for it. This little roll lets you fit it more comfotably in your bag or on a belt loop. Don't get stuck without gaff tape on another shoot. Priced appropriately.

              I thought the picture was distorted and I didn't read carefully enough to see that this is a very small roll of gaffers tape. Fortunately, it was all I needed to tape down a black seamless and a few extension cords for a photo booth because I used every inch. Great quality. Great product. Arrived quickly.

                  If you thought you were getting a giant roll you were wrong. If you are reading this, it means hopefully you weren't in a hurry to buy and took the time to read the dimensions. Sometime when we rush to purchase things we overlook aspects... It's a tiny amount. You may think it's a steal at the price, but in reality it's just normal... It's fine tape, it works fine, just not a giant roll...

                    Pretty costly for such a small roll of tape. The tape is good, you just don't get that much.
