Scotch Box Sealing Tape Dispenser H183
The Scotch Box Sealing Tape Dispenser H183 is manufactured with a pistol-grip design that allows the operator to apply, cut, and buff up to a 3-inch wide tape in an easy, one-hand motion. It dispenses up to a 109-yard/100-meter roll of box sealing tape with a maximum width of 3-inch/72-millimeter. The hub mounted adjustable brake controls tension to help dispense the tape along the box seam and prevent waste. Pistol-grip style allows easy one-hand operation.
Quick and Comfortable Tape Gun:
The H183, constructed of metal and durable plastic, is tough enough to operate in high-volume shipping, warehouse, and other work environments.
Don’t Box Without One:
A Scotch Manual Box Sealing Tape Dispenser is an essential tool wherever products are processed, repackaged, or prepared for distribution. Consumer goods, electronics, food and beverage, general industrial, medical, MRO, paper, print, warehouses, industrial plants, e-commerce shipping operations, and retail distribution outlets are some of the places these useful tools are found. In addition to box sealing, they are also useful for combining, reinforcing, bundling, and other operations.

This model has a spring loaded clip that keeps the tape pressed against the roller wheel. It has thin contact so it doesn't hold on too much to the tape.
The Scott heavy duty model holds on to the tape too much making it hard to grab small pieces of tape.
Trust me, even if you only use this thing once a month or even a few times a year, you will want this model over the Scott.
I used to have this model until my wife lost it. So I bought the Scott to try it out. UGGGHHH, not worth it. Bought this one.
Now my wife uses the Scott and hates it and secretly tries to use this dispenser while we are packing up our home.
If you are part of the Under 4 years old crowd, and have trouble with sharp things, get the cheaper tape dispenser.
This thing also has an adjustment for tape pressure, works great, I bought a second one for the USPS Priority tape that you get free from the post office.
This item is # 37 on the "John's all time list of Good Stuff".
The tension can be easily adjusted, and the roller provides a nice even pressure. What I have found over the years is that tape brands and weights make a BIG difference in performance of a tape gun. I use the heavier duty Scotch tapes (clear ones) - they are a thicker film than the light weight tapes - and won't double back on you as much.... plus, you don't have to use several passes - one or two will work just fine.... finally, the adhesive on the stronger tapes gives a more even pressure when dispensing.
The dispenser itself is set at a nice angle to get most boxes in one pass. The blade is nice and sharp - I don't see where you would ever have to replace it unless you damage it somehow. The tension adjustment is a simple threaded bolt and a spring/plastic knurled thumb nut. I set it once in 2002 or so and just use the same tape, never mess with it again.
There is a spring loaded bail that holds the tape next to the roller - putting on a new roll of tape is simple, especially since you can lift that little bail and feed the tape through.
The side is a heavy steel plate, it does not flex. The handle is hollow plastic, but feels very solid.
I have even taken this on a trip, and just sent some of my clothes / luggage back via UPS instead of paying the airline.... insured, faster, and cheaper.
don't go cheap - get one, you won't regret it.
However, if you have a wider variety of uses of packaging tape, then the H180 makes those more difficult, since it is only designed to seal a shipping box.
For example, if you sell on ebay, and want to print shipping labels and attach them to the box with the same clear packaging tape, then this is somewhat difficult with the H180.
The H122 works much better for those sorts of tasks, since it is more "manual". It is easy to dispense as much or as little tape as you want, and cut it even more precisely. But the "brake" allows the H122 to also work well for sealing shipping boxes.
The one downside of this product is that it is somewhat expensive, for a product that is composed of inexpensive plastic plus one blade. Mysteriously, it is higher in price than the more complicated H180. But here is a tip - there is a consumer version of this H122 that is less than half the price - look here on Amazon for the DP300. Other reviewers have pointed out that it is essentially the same as this H122.
