"The 1st reviewer is correct. This tape STICKS. The problem/s become known if you use it to secure temporarily and want to remove later!! My Tiler used it to secure some to the walls and agreed it was the strongest he had used. UNFORTUNATELY... When removed it leaves glue residue attached to whatsoever it was securing. Though not in my case but it is possible that it might take paint or plaster away with it!!?? Used to be permanently fixed [to carpet/lino etc] probably the best method Hope so as, at the price; I bought 3 rolls!!!!!"
