Product Description

From the Manufacturer

PAPERTIGER Wallcovering Scoring Tool perforates waterproof wallcoverings so remover solution can penetrate and resolubilize paste. PAPERTIGER's patented scoring disks open surface holes to let DIF penetrate and attack the paste. In 1985, Zinsser introduced a tool that answered the need for a better way to perforate waterproof wallcoverings. This wallcovering tool, called PAPERTIGER, was as revolutionary an advance in its field as DIF was in remover solutions. With PAPERTIGER, scoring became faster, easier and safer for both worker and wall.

Product Description

A tool designed to score wallcovering surfaces to allow wallpaper removers to penetrate to the wall surface. The unique cutting action penetrates the wallcovering only and lifts small sections away from the surface.

My wife and I had some wallpaper and some border to strip so that we could repaint a bedroom and bath. In combination with a spray-on gel stripper, I used this scoring tool to help with the job. I found that it does a great job of easily scoring the paper and the resulting holes do allow the stripper gel to penetrate better. If I had anything negative to say it is that in a lot of cases this is unnecessary. By doing side by side tests, I was able to get as good of results by spraying the stripper onto un-scored border as I did when using the "paper tiger." In fact, at times the scored paper was more work to remove because it tore into smaller pieces during removal.

I think this tool will be great for removing heavy/commercial wallpaper or wallpaper that has been painted over, but I also think that it is overkill for an awful lot of home use situations...

I bought this tool in '02, I had several paint contracts that year. A 5000sq ft office building with paper borders, wallpaper in restrooms and kitchen, paper from chair rail down in customer service areas, had to be painted. I admit, I kind of panicked. The salesman at my paint supplier recommended this gadget. It worked out great! A garden sprayer,wallpaper stripping solution,my Paper Tiger and a 6" drywall taping knife(about 10 garbage bags)took me about 6-7 hours to strip it all off, cleaning up the mess as I go. If not for the little Paper Tiger I might still be peeling the face off, then spraying the underlying paper backing and rolling that off a precious little at a time. Great time saver, never once penetrated the paper covering on the drywall beneath.

Sometimes the simplest tool gets the job done. I had read the reviews and decided to try it out along with the Zinsser 2486 DIF Fast Acting Spray Ready To Use Wallpaper Stripper. I followed the instructions and it worked out great. This simple tool allows the spray to soak the wallpaper. I'm not sure how it would work without the Fast Acting Spray. It does take a little arm muscle to scrape off the wallpaper and glue but it wasn't that difficult. This product met my expectations and I would definitely purchase it again.

The first thing to understand about wallpaper removal is that there is a lot of variety in the types of paper and adhesives and some are easier to remove than others. Your first step should be to attempt to remove the wallpaper just by peeling it off the wall. I had good luck with two rooms where the paper came off so cleanly that there was no scraping needed. Unfortunately, one other room and the hallway require scraping which is how I came to purchase this product.

The Paper Tiger is definitely worth trying. Use the tool to score the wallpaper very liberally. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure as you don't want to damage the walls. I used mine on paper over drywall and with a light application there were many small score marks and a satisfying pile of wallpaper dust on the floor when done. I then used a spray bottle with 2/3 hot water and 1/3 white vinegar. I applied a good amount of water to where the walls were wet but not dripping. Let it sit 10 minutes and then return to scrape it off. I used the Zinsser scraping tool and was very pleased with the results.

I would say that I spent about 3 times as much time scoring the paper than I did with the actual scraping. The scored and wet paper came off easily with the scraper and if you find yourself working hard scraping then perhaps you didn't use enough water or let it sit long enough. If it still doesn't work well, then perhaps a solvent like DIF is in order.

Best of luck!

It helps a little more than going at it without one. Be warned. It can and will most likely leave tiny trails of gouges in your drywall even with the slightest pressure. Luckily, I only had to use it in a small hallway. It was still a little bit of an inconvenience to have to spackle and sand some areas without knowing it was going to happen ahead of time, on what was otherwise unworn and clean primed drywall. I would think if you're removing wallpaper, you're most likely wanting to paint afterwards. Expect visible "pinholes" after you use it, some of which are shallow enough to be filled in with just paint, some not. But otherwise, it's inexpensive enough and makes the job a little easier. No big complaints from this lazy day painter.

As it is with all wallpaper, it's either easy, hard, or almost impossible. The easy stuff you can just spray, and the hard stuff is where this tool will shine. It will pay for itself in one room if it's the right kind of paper. It has little effect on the impossible stuff.

I have one room with a "satin" finished wallpaper on it. This could not simply be sprayed, because the paper coating repelled the water. Even after spongeing it down, the paper did not want to come off. Roll this tool lightly over the entire wall surface. Move in circles and be fairly diligent to ensure that the water can get behind the paper, to the glue and backing.

However, my second room was a much thicker, almost vinyl finish. Even with a TON of passes, the spray has little effect on softening the glue enough to get a good peel... You end up with three inch pieces, and a lot of expletives. This is not necessarily the fault of this tool, but many people buy this for rooms like these, just be aware that it wont always be a godsend.
