Customer Reviews
Scotch® Tear-By-Hand Mailing Packaging Tape is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This brand's clear tape has been such an iconic brand for me growing up, anyone can say, "hand me the scotch tape" and I will immediately know you want a clear tape, no matter what the brand is. This brand is functional and durable and is a must have for any renter/homeowners out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy packaging tape I received a free sample from 3M, and with grandkids in college and one in the Military, I cannot live without this convenience now. It is Wonderfully Easy to ship off little CARE packages, with no measuring and scissors needed. This helps to make my life easier when sending packages. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tape ever! This is so easy to tear and use--I don't know why it's so hard to find in stores. I use it for all packing--never a problem. I use small sections as a lint remover, too--picks up animal hair off clothes better than anything I've ever found. Love this tape!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scotch Packing Tape. This is one of the best packing tapes out there. It lasts a while and its ultra strong! I use it to mail out packages and i havent heard any complaints from it. The bad part to it since its super strong if I mess it up and the tape sticks to it self im screwed and have to start again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scotch packing tape is a heavy duty tape that seals and secure boxes closed. This tape came in handy during moving to a new home, mailing out gifts, and also during hurricane season to tape things up. This adhesive has a clear finish that sticks well to any type of boxes/packaging and many surfaces such as glass to apply labels. The best tape for package sealing highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever! Love that it is so easy to use,,,I always had trouble with dispensers for large tape. This always tears perfectly. Works for everything,,, packages, crafts, to repair books and other items. It is hard to find in any store,,,I sure don't know why. I now order it on amazon and always have it on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of all but impossible to find! Best tape possible-no scissors needed-no tricky dispensers BUT IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND even in big city Los Angeles! Online merchants offer it in varying prices - beware low prices due to very small rolls. This should be sold EVERYWHERE!
