The essential problem with tape is that it usually either sticks too much, or it sticks too little. It's so hard to find tape that will hold something in place for as long as you need it there, then allow you to remove it without tearing everything up, pulling paint off of the wall or leaving a sticky residue. This tape solves that problem.
Gaffers tape is the stuff that they use on the sets of plays and films to hold things together securely but temporarily. It does jobs like taping down wires and cables, attaching cloth to walls, securing corners of boxes, and so on. A small piece will hold almost anything where you need it to stick, then when you want to remove it, you just pull it up. No residue and no damage to what it was stuck to.
The one real problem is finding gaffers tape at a reasonable price; it's not a standard item at the hardware store, and it's usually not cheap. This product is the solution to both of those problems. It looks like it costs a lot, but you'll find the roll lasts a VERY long time.
Bottom line: This stuff works like magic, and it's a great value.
Gaffers tape is similar to duct tape in terms of strength and the ability to easily tear it by hand (opposed to requiring scissors). The strength is very strong - you can tape objects to walls, use it to mark spots on the ground, use it as general strong-adhesive tape.. but in the end be able to easily remove it without tearing objects or leaving adhesive.
The tape is much more expensive than other types, but if you need a gaffers tape (which is usually for photographers, videographers or set designs), it's a great object to have.
The intertape gaffers tape comes in a VERY large roll (much larger than it appears in the photo -- imagine a 6x6" roll of tape, about 2" thick). Fortunately, you can re-package it to make it more portable (wrap it around a pencil, for example). With 60 yards (about 180 feet) it should be enough to last a LONG time.
The tape comes in a matte-black finish (opposed to glossy like you usually find on duct tape), is very strong and does not leave any adhesive when removed. After going through a few other brands CLAIMING to be gaffers tape, it was a relief to find that this one lived up to the name. Quality is very good, but it is a bit pricey.
It seems to be the real deal. No residue after I stick it on a piece of painted plastic for about a month.
