I have been shipping items for many years and after the fiasco I had today with an off brand , I will never ever use anything else but Scotch brand. I usually have a rolls on hand but fell low and sent the husband out to pick up a roll. It was the worst time I ever had sealing a package. I told him that he is only to buy Scotch brand, or better yet, I will never run out of it. Time to Stockpile...:)

This is crazy!! I just want to tape a box and use the dispenser I paid for and I cant get it to thread through the slot. No diagrams or anything on the dispenser either. It shouldn't be that difficult, what's the problem?

Easy to Use - with so many Uses!
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
I go through a lot of packaging tape and I can't afford to waste time with the type of tape that refuses to become unstuck from itself. This Scotch Heavy Duty tape with the dispenser is a dream of ease and efficiency. Thanks, 3M!
from Whitney, TX
I have used this product several times. The ease of use is remarkable and it stands up to package mailing just like a pro. I would recommend this product to anyone with or without packages to mail.

Packaging Tape ripped in my hand!
from Spencerport, NY
I have purchased Scotch brand heavy duty tape for years to ship packages to my family. I purchased a 38.2 yd heavy duty 20x stronger roll again today but unfortunately, while wrapping the large package, the tape ripped in my hands a number of times. Totally disappointed and surprised. I hope it is just a bad batch. 0 51131 96134 0
Worst tape ever.
from Bergen County, NJ, United States
We bought several roles of this for taping boxes for a move. That is all that is sold at Home Depot for this type of thing. It will not stay on the boxes. It randomly peals off at the worst possible time. Finally found something that works and IT ISN'T SCOTCH BRAND....... This tape sucks. Is it too much to ask that tape stay on?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Heavy Duty Packing Tape 3850
from Raleigh, NC, United States
I used this tape on boxes from Home Depot and Lowe's. After a few days the tape released from the box and I had to retake them. I don't recommend using this product.
3M-Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape with Dispenser
from Staten Island, NY
The Tape is very thing now; not the way it was in prior years. It also sticks onto itself before you have a chance to actually tape something with - more like fly paper now. I have purchased so many times with no headaches. The Tape is not the same. It has become just a thin packaging tape now.

Does not stick
By Val T
from Norristown, PA, United States
I purchased an eight pack of scotch premium performance packaging tape a month ago. Needless to say I did not think there would be a problem. Now I can't find my receipt. I loaded a tape gun finding the tape does not stick. I tried another roll and the same thing occurred. I am very disappointed. I thought I was buying the best packaging tape for the job. I now have 8 rolls of nonstick tape. This was money down the drain!
from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States
I bought this several weeks ago so I don't have the receipt anymore, but after first use found that this tape doesn't stick AT ALL. Totally dry! All that is on the dispenser is a long strip of plastic with no glue! What the heck? Would like my money back.

from San Diego, CA, United States
The tape is great but the dispenser is a joke ! And then you provide a little white paper , with the bar code trying to explain how to load the tape. The example pictures are so small you need a mag. glass to read them !
Would be a good product if it worked
from Falls Church, VA, United States
I bought this tape to secure typical brown moving boxes. The tape fails miserably and does not stick. I've gone through several roles, and always come back to boxes with the tape hanging off, after coming loose because it does not stick. This answers the question why, if you receive a box by mail, it is encased I'm the tape. It's an attempt to secure the package. I'm sure that sales are,high because you have to use so much for every box. It's a junky product.
3650 Moving and Packing Tape (Long lasting)
from Apple Valley, MN
I just purchased the above tape and used to pack boxes for a move. This is the most worthless tape I have ever used. The tape just falls off the cardboard moving boxes after about one day. I will NEVER buy your awful tape again!
from College Station, TX, United States
I am an elementary teacher and use this tape for many many things in the classroom. One of the biggest uses is to tape name plates on student desks. I have never had any trouble until this year. The tape will not stay down on the desks. I bought a multi pack of tape and have tried all the rolls. I have wiped the tables with water, then the school's cleaner and then Clorox wipes. The tape comes up after each cleaning. Help! What do I need to do?
from West Georgia
The tape itself is the same ol', same ol' we all know and love. But ... the "new" dispenser is useless. And I do mean USELESS! I fished my old, broken one out of the trash so I could tape a box up for storage. I'm going to try to saw some "teeth" into the new dispenser. Wish me luck.

I buy t his all the time to seal my packages. I don't know how many times the tape keeps tearing and I can't use it. I spent an hour this morning trying to get one started and it kept tearing in pieces. This happens all the time and I have to throw it away. This is the second one this month.

from Chula Vista, CA, United States
I have a roll of Scotch heavy duty packaging tape. It is totally useless to me--it doesn't have any stickiness to it. I am very disappointed, not to mention being poorer for buying it. I have had it long enough that I don't have a receipt for it nor do I remember where I bought it.
from Lansing, MI, United States
I have bought Scotch shipping tape for years. However, the latest roll I purchased and tried to use today is just terrible. It is SO sticky, it sticks hard to itself. I cannot get a full width piece to even get it started to use on the dispenser. It breaks off in little pieces and is next to impossible to pry off the roll. I'm so annoyed with the this roll.
Very poor web site
from Green Valley, AZ
The width of the tape is not to be found anywhere in the details or specifications.
Less than stellar performance
from northern VA
Bought shipping and packing tape for a move. It just kept lifting off. At one point I was lifting a box off the ground and my foot stuck to a piece of lifted tape. The whole bottom came open Definiely NOT using this on my next move (a month from now)
You need to produce a YouTube video!
from Kansas, United States
I have NEVER been able to thread this dispenser. No matter how calm I am, no matter how much I try, it won't work! I've used many rolls and I never am able to use it properly. Please! Make a video before I lose my mind!
Worst tape ever!
from Chicago, IL, United States
I bought this tape about a week ago and the tape did not have any type of adhesive. The roll basically became undone as soon as you pulled the tape off. On top of that the tape was really expensive. Very dissatisfied with the quality of the product.
NOT Sticky. Will not stick to regular cardboard.
By Tim in Hollywood
Based on all of the rave reviews, I must have received a bad batch or something. I got a small box of these 1.5" cores on the plastic dispensers. I took one small roll (out of the small box of them) with me to a convention, so that I could pack up everything when the show was complete. When I put it on the first box, I noticed that something was very wrong. It would barely stick to the box. I noticed that it would barely even stick to my fingers. I then tried to seal a couple boxes with it. However, buy the time I got to the next box, it was already coming off of the previous box. When pulled it off of the roll, it was nearly as sticky on the "adhesive" side as it was on the back. This was huge mess for me. It was the only roll of tape I had (I only had 6-7 boxes to seal). When I got back, I noticed that the other brand-new rolls were the same. Very disappointing. :-(
