3M™ Safe-Release™ Platinum Painter's Tape 2098-SR is rated 1.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted Time. Doesn’t stick I spent 49 minutes taping off a wall, baseboards etc. I noticed a spot at the top was coming loose so I made sure to rub the entire ceiling taped area again. I went into another room for about 20 minutes and started hearing a “hissing” noise. Turns out it was ALL of the tape slowly releasing from my ceiling, and then down the walls. ugh! I thought there was something wrong with my walls until I saw the other reviews. The only upside is that I no longer feel so alone in my frustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ??? I read all the bad reviews in shock! I finished a very detailed restoration job in 3 rooms, and this was far and away the best masking tape I ever used in 30yrs. Only came on this site trying to find where to buy more, as Lowes no longer has it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn’t rate a zero This is the worst tape I have ever used. It tore off a ton of old paint from a wall that I taped to create a sharp corner. I have also used it on other surfaces and it fails there too. This cost me a lot of money to re paint and pay for more paint for the customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't stay in place I taped my area off the night before to get a great start in the morning, but when I went to start the job, the tape was not where I had placed it. It felt like it would have been great tape, but couldn't believe my luck. I came to this website to learn more about the tape (maybe I wasn't using it for the correct application), I came across reviews from other people with the same problem. I can't believe with all these 1 reviews, retailers are still selling the tape.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Tape Ever This tape did not hold at all. I have used 3M painters tape for years, but this new product gives the xompany a bad name. I will be changing brands. We taped our living room the night before painting & woke the next morning to have at least 90% hanging down. We were careful to press hard & have clean surfaces. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t stay on Like other reviews I found the tape didn’t stick well. I taped before bed last night and found the tape had peeled off and buckled up when I came to paint this morning. Very frustrating. I had cleaned the surfaces before and used firm pressure to apply. I haven’t had trouble with other products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money and TIME! This tape presented poor adhesive properties. It does not stay adhered to any type of surfaces. I wasted 3 hours taping a project for a client. I cleaned and burnished the tape in position. By the next morning it was coming off multiple areas, wall, painted trim, railings. It really should be discontinued.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tape doesn't work The tape allows paint leakage. No clear lines, the result is just as bad as if you painted without the tape.
