Customer Reviews
Scotch® Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape, 142-540-SR, 1.88 in x 15 yd (48 mm x 13,7 m) is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love This Tape This is my go to tape when shipping orders, that being said I hate how it's so loud compared to other tapes from the same brand . It's loud enough that I can't do any packaging at night because I'm worried it'll disturb someone . The tape itself is great!, it sticks well and doesn't budge

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor instructions on dispense I may have wasted my money because there are no instructions how to install the replacement roll in the cheap orange dispenser. I called the number suggested to another customer who had the same problem and you hung up on me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality design of dispenser I bought this last week and it now has a safety feature for the cutting teeth unlike earlier version I use to have. This had made this dispenser useless, the teeth do not extend far enough to easily cut the tape and there is not a way to adjust. So it either does not cut the tape or you have to put your other hand in and push the tape to the teeth to cut, so much for safety when you have to do that... Either go back to the older model without retractable teeth which is my suggestion or completely redesign to something that works or extends the teeth with less paddle movement. But as it it worthless so buy the cheap no safety plastic one with no handle that just holds the roll but works and cuts the tape. If I had known I would never have spent the extra money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Might be great if you can ever get to it! Just bought a six pack of this product and there are three problems before I ever use it: The fact that I sought out this web site to complain about this product, which I rarely do about anything, is an indication of my frustration with it, 1) Instructions for routing the tape through the dispenser are incomprehensible: "Pull tape through tabs" You can't pull tape "through" tabs - there is no "through". There is only under or over. Horrible diagram included does not make this any better. Once you figure that out, you are on your own on how to route tape across cutting bar. 2) You can't get the tape off the roll without damaging the roll, the dispenser, or both. There is a white bar to indicate where the tape begins on the roll, only it's not at the beginning, its buried somewhere in the first turn of tape on the roll. You have to use a boxcutter or similar to cut carefully cut into the roll and unwind the first turn, losing some amount of product just to create a starting point. 3) When you attempt to remove the cardboard the instructions are printed on, it tears off and leaves a section under the cutting bar which must be removed to use the tape. This is so difficult to remove it requires needle nose pliers to pull out, and it's so strong that the cutting bar is actually damaged at the four points where it must be removed. Normally I love 3M products. My house, garage and workshop are full of 3M products. I trust 3M to deliver a quality product. The tape on this product is probably wonderful, but that doesn't matter if you can't access or use it due to poor packaging and incomprehensible instructions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad Dispenser The tape is okay. The dispenser is flimsy and unless you re very careful, the tape will spring back onto thee roll, requiring minutes to get it free again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Scotch Shipping tape dispenser roller With projects for grandchildren, shipping, etc. we go through this tape quickly. This is the 2nd time we have bought the tape (different vendors) and the cardboard inside roll is distorted so you can not pull the tape through the dispenser unless you pull the red plastic sides away from the roll of tape. Causes a lot of frustration!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't understand other reviews I use the product primary to reinforce and repair flying model aircraft. It is the strongest product I have found. Life is not worth living without it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from tape starting to pop up The tape seems to be strong. The dispenser works well. I taped a box yesterday and today, it started to pop up. What is happenning? I am very disappointed. Unfortunately, I cannot return it as I do not have the receipt nor the packaging. It was purchased about 1 month ago.
