"Good stuff, refills available, protects surface edges well, however could do with slimmer size but still good value and protecting, again very little bleed through with attached tape."

Excellent Stuff
7 Mar 2010
By TheErector
, Somerset
"Really useful clever stuff. I use it for drilling holes in walls over carpets, so for me it lasts forever. Much better than insulation tape and plastic bags. If it looks like flaky paint, make it less tacky by sticking it to the carpet first!"

Good valve product
23 Mar 2014
By Gibbo6986
, Peterborough
"Could not face the prospect of lifting fitted carpet before painting the skirting board in hall, stairs and landing so decided to give this tape a try. Very pleased I did. A bit fiddly to use at first but soon got used to it and did the job with not a spot of paint getting on the carpet. As other reviewers have said the tape could be it wider but overall I am very pleased and will definitely use it again. Works best if removed before paint is completely dry."

easy masking

"excellent idea that works really well, you have to be carefull not to drag the polythene across the serated cutting edge as you roll it out as it will cut the polythene in to strips which wastes it but other then that its great."

Carpet Protector, clean Lines
23 Oct 2012
By MosleyBusy
, Lincoln
"Very useful under dust sheets which let paint through on to your carpet anyway. Careful application of the tape ensures a sharp paint border at the wall to skirting border line. Some parts of the roll were not usable as masking tape came off the edge. Overall a worthwhile purchase when you consider the cost of a carpet,"

good for what it does
8 Oct 2011
By markharding
, swadlincote
"Ideal for just doing little bits and bobs when putting a blind up stuck this across the windows, put sheet out over window sill and worktop etc. drilled away and just folded up when I had finished.
Cutter is a bit awkward but does work
Only downside is it could be a bit wider on both film and tape, only thin piece of masking tape so can come away quite easy and would have been nice if sheet was 650 wide then would be ideal for work tops, just stick on tiles/splash back. Pull out complete worktop covered and dirt can’t get in silicone etc.
Overall nice little idea and does save time masking and sheeting. As just throw away with dirt wrapped up inside"

Useful tip

"Very easy to use and sharp edges. REMEMBER: once you have masked the area run a plastic spatula over the edge of the tape to make sure it sticks evenly. Remove the tape before paint is dried."

Tape too thin, doesn't stick.
15 Jan 2014
By ManX
, Offshore
"Bought this to mask off some fitted bedroom furniture. Tape wouldn't stick to the smooth, dust free surface (separate masking tape did). As others have said, difficult to put down a straight line at any sort of speed. The cutter fell out before first use. Overall, not very impressed.
If it had a wider, "stickier" tape, and a cutter that didn't fall out then it would get 5 stars."

Not sticky enough
12 Aug 2013
By chapper
, Glasgow
"I have used this tape several times when spraying the exterior of buildings,and find that the tape tends to come away from the masked area in places leaving surfaces which are unprotected. I now use the tape and then go over it with ordinary masking tape to make sure it is well stuck on,It could be a great product if it was improved ..possibly a low-tack and hi-tack version?"

Great idea but flawed
19 Aug 2012
By HandyHarper
, Hertfordshire
"Been thinking of trying this item for a while and finally took the plunge and gave it a go.
It works OK but is far too fiddly. The strip of masking tape is a little too thin to use quickly and easily. It needs to be a little wider. Also, the despenser tends to tear the plastic rather than cut it. I will probably go back to using plain masking tape which I can apply much faster and easier. Lastly when removing after painting the masking tape tends to come away from the plastic sheeting leaving the tape in place.
There may be a knack to using this product which I don't have yet but on a first use I wouldn't recommend this product.

Dont bother with this.
4 Feb 2009
By DiySelfbuilder

"Not very Sticky tape edge and plastic rips quite easy,
Better off buying thick masking tape.
Cutting edge is ok.
Come off easily - before painting!!
Dont bother buying this use thick masking tape and buy a plastic dust sheet instead.
