Cricket Bat grip
13 Apr 2015
By Liscon15
, Carlisle
" I purchased this tape not for plumbing or electrical needs but rather for stopping my rubber cricket bat grip sliding up (any cricketer will know what I'm talking about). This is pretty much the same stuff as a 'revolutionary' new product which stops this but for fraction of the price plus you get loads more. You simply cut off a 10cm piece, take off the backing plastic and wrap the tape around your bat handle under the rubber grip and jobs done no more grip moving up the handle. "

Very Handy Product
27 Mar 2015
By SparkyWarrenG
, Birmingham
" Used this tape to give some added support to some electrical connections outdoors. Great product and easy to use.
Just note there is a cover on the tape that needs to peel off when your using it and it simply bonds to itself.
Definately one to keep in the tool bag!!

" This tape is better than some I have paid 10 quid for. It sticks together like glue but the outside is not sticky once done. Brilliant. Make sure u stretch tight for better adhesion "

Peeling of Tape Skin
12 Jul 2014
By HK57
, Hull
" A very big thank you to those previous reviews and tips about peeling back the skin before application. Most helpful. I peeled it back prior to use and then kept on stripping it back before cutting the tape.
Very difficult to get it started. I used a cerrated knife on the end and kept scraping it back till I got some purchase on the skin to be able to start peeling it back. It is not the easiest of tasks but well worth taking the time to do. What ever you do, do not let the skin break off, rather keep peeling it back as you go along.

Excellent

" I use this tape in a multitude of ways and love the way it seals on it's self.
The only warning would be not to cut the tape & the backing at the same time, trying to separate it again afterward is a Mare!!!! "

Just the Job!
4 Apr 2014
By SiBalls
, West Sussex
" I was hesitant reading other reviews but this tape is great.
Salute to you, the person who proposed cutting the tape diagonal to get the skin off.
Used it on an a 10y/o pvc elbow that I managed to crack all the way through, no leaks since!
As for the stickiness, had absolutely no problem getting this to stick to itself when pulled tight. "

" This tape is excellent ! Great for sealing pipes, electrical connections, aerial installations, repairs to charging leads. . .etc. .
Everyone should have a roll in their tool box, at the price, it's a no-brainer!!!

self-amalgamating tape
20 Jun 2014
By TimC
, Marlborough
" It struggles to do the job, as you need to stretch this type of tape out, but it kept snapping when we did.
Having said that, when we cut down the stretch, it did as good a job as any.
It is purely a stop gap, when you cannot access the parts you need for a proper job.

" This tape works great once you've figured out how to get the backing off. Easier to do before while still attached to the roll and as others suggest, bend back on itself to create a break in the seal. "
