Multi-purpose gaffer's tape offers excellent adhesion and can be torn easily by hand. This matte finish, cloth-like tape is used in a variety of settings such as auto racing, pit stops, photography, theaters and stage sets. Although often used by industry professionals, simple house hold uses may include repair of sporting goods, adding a quick grip to garden tool handles, or even temporary hanging of light strings.

It's much nmore flexible, and It ends up much gummier after time than my black gaffer's tape bought elsewhere. I wouldn't use it for long-term, or even maybe more than a couple of weeks. The adhesive gets really, really soft.
I'm not mad, just a little disappointed that I'll need to make do. It's not worth shipping back; I'll use it.
I brought this tape in June 2014, and used it for the first time in Aug. 2014 when the back door to my mother's house completely came off the hinges. This door is actually not that old, about 12 years, I guess, but not very sturdy wood. The original door was thick and heavy, but after decades of harsh snowy Winters and rainy Spring seasons, nature finally took it's toll on the door and it needed to be replaced. The old sturdy door was replaced with a cheap door that the city put in for free under this program designed to help senior citizens. Well, instead of replacing the old worn out door pane and hinge, they attached a long, thin, strip of wood (that swings out from the door jam), to the pane, drilled holes in this thin piece of wood, and used 1/2" nails to attach the piece of wood to the new door which was actually made of cork sandwich between thin wood. The door came completely off the hinge, a few times before, unbeknown to me until this time, because the nails are so short that they only drive about 1/4" into the door. My mother had always managed to get someone to put the door back up.
Well, this past winter on the east coast was as long and harsh a winter as it's ever been in decades, causing considerable damage to many homes. And in late August, yep, you guess it, the entire door fell completely off the hinge, again. The electric man had came over that day to replace the meter, which was in the back yard. After he left, I went to close the door, and it literally fell off the hinge, I had to put in some great effort to catch it and keep it from literally falling to the ground. The cork that the nails goes into was so damaged, there was no way we were getting it back up with nails.
It was 90 degrees outside. And after two hours of me and my teenage daughter sweating profusely and me grumbling under my breath, I had to accept the realization that this door was not going back up, at least not in the manner it was designed to. My daughter stood looking at me pitiful, wondering what in the world I (her mom) was going to do, just she and I in the house. So we got the door back up on the top cemented step and just laid it across the opening of where the door was supposed to be and came back inside the house. It was around 5PM on a Friday afternoon, bad time for a door to come off the hinge and needing replacement.
My daughter said, "mom what are you going to do?, we can't just leave the back of the house open like that"
I've always been pretty good at fixing things, and improvising, but this was one situation, I wasn't so sure I could fix, and from the look on my daughter's face, she didn't look too hopeful either. The door was cheap, but it was still heavy, and she and I continuous lifting it in an effort to get it back up was taking a toll on our backs. We have a shed kitchen door with two locks on it, so if push came to shove, it would have just had to secure us through one night--that meant, I'd be sleeping like one-eye jack, and trust me, that did enter my mind.
So I said to her, "I don't know, but I'll figure out something. Right now I'm just too frustrated to think."
So I went upstairs and got out of the sweaty shirt, all the while thinking to myself, "you can't leave that door like that." There must be something you can do to get it back up. And just while I was thinking that I would have to leave it like that, and pay someone tomorrow to buy and put in a new door, it suddenly hit me that I had one more chance at bat, and with that revelation, I went charging back down stairs to the living room where my daughter was, and I screeched, "I got it! I got it! I know how we can get the door back up." Then I told her about this gaffer's tape I had brought a couple months ago that I haven't used yet. I said to her that I read reviews on Amazon about how strong and durable it was, so it's got to work.
Without waiting for her response, I ran back up stairs and got back into my blouse. Then I grabbed the gaffer's tape that was in my bedroom and took off running back downstairs. I immediately fell into a fit of laughter at the expression I saw on my daughter's face, as if she was saying in her thoughts, "what the hell are you going to do with a roll of tape?"
And once I started laughing, she laughed too. Then she just said, "mom." and I went, "I know. I Know. But we got one more chance at bat. This is it. Do or die."
We got that door back up using gaffer's tape within 30 minutes.
That thin strip of wood I told you about that swung out from the pane?, was how we did it. We prop the door up on the top step with bricks and held it as close to that thin strip of wood as best we could, and with me on the inside of the house and my daughter on the outside, I past long strips of tape between the door jam for her to reach, and we both tape our sides of the door, taping the long thin piece of wood that was attached to the pane to the jam of the door. We started in the center to secure the door, then worked the top and bottom, alternately, and we only used about 1/3 of the roll.
Fast forward to three weeks later, the door has held up better than it did with nails in it, opens and closes better than new. As I'm finishing up this review, my daughter came in my bedroom to see what I was doing. I told her I was writing a review on the use of Gaffer's tape, how we put the door back up with it. She just smiled proudly. (She's not one for working around the house, trust me)
SAVED BY GAFFER'S TAPE.! It'll Always Have A Place in my Home.
It does not leave "sticky" and if a user (bless their hearts) pulls too hard on a cable, a zip tie won't give... this tape will. If you wrap it right, this will prevent damage to cables.
It looks clean, and better than zip ties because you can just stick it to a desk, or under a table. Need to run a temporary LAN cable? Tape it to the carpet without fear that the CE bubbas will come get you for making sticky lines on the floor.
