Customer Reviews
Scotch® Shipping Packaging Tape with Dispenser is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from packing tape I have used this tape many times for mailing packages and many times have had the frustration of the end sticking to the roll. When trying to find the end this time it rendered the roll useless. I threw it away. There has to be a better way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticking to something is the #1 requirement Too bad this tape doesn't actually stick i have a brand new role with dispenser that doesn't have any stickiness at all

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to start Why don't you make it easier for the customer to get the tape started. Don't you realize there are a lot of seniors, etc. who don't have FINGERNAILS to scrape the tape off the roll. You're a packaging company; you should make it easy to use your product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to start I bought 4 rolls. When I attempted to remove the "caution" cardboard thing covering the blade at the performation if left about a 1/4 inch of cardboard over the tape. I finally called 3M and learned to just cut that back to the blade. Then learned the tape DOES NOT go through anything near the blade. On the box it says pull the tape "through the tabs". You do NOT do this either. Those tabs are just a resting place for the tape until you need it again. Pull tape forward and on your box. Then hold it down while turning wrist slightly to cut it. It truly is simple but the directions are very poor. I am not the first writer to be frustrated with the cardboard piece that stayed over the blade. Yet in no video has 3M addressed this. Once I got it going I give it a 3 but trying to start it was so frustrating I give it a very poor rating.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Challenge to get Started I have purchased this tape for sealing boxes many times. It never gets easier to get it started. First, the little cardboard tab must be removed. If one pulls on it the larger part tears off but the smaller part tucked into the red plastic tabs stays put. I have to get a small scissors and nip away carefully to pull with finger tips to get that piece of cardboard out. It would be helpful if one pull removes both parts of the cardboard. Then to get the tape to start takes a long time. It would be great to have a started strip to pull to get the tape started and put in position. And is one supposed to be a mind reader/psychic to figure out how the tape should be placed to get proper pull and tear? Apparently so. I am amazed that this product's ease of starting and use hasn't been complained about and improved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't stick This is the worst tape I have ever used. I recently moved and over 80% of my boxed popped open because this tape DOES NOT STICK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thinner than it ever was before I always have a couple of rolls of your packaging tape on hand. I just started a new roll (Scotch Shipping and Packaging tape which says more than 3000 inches on it). How frustrating, to try to find the end and then have it sliver off. The tape is noticeably thinner than any I've used before and easily tears and folds in on itself. By the time I was finished taping a package, I was totally annoyed and had to write this review. I guess I'll have to look for "HEAVY DUTY" on future purchases, who knew there were different grades.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I taped a box for shipping and the next morning It had all come unraveled. The tape sucks.
