Yep, it's the only tape that will stick to gorillas.

I went to HD awhile back looking for some duct tape. The woman took me to
the paint department, and tried to sell me the gorilla tape. Had a way of
enthusiatically talking about the product.

I found my way to the HVAC area and bought a bigger roll of Nashua brand for
less money. My usage of duct tape doesn't require anything beyond that.

If it did, I wouldn't be using duct tape.

Gorilla tape IS better. Much better. It has a real cloth structure,
and vastly superior adhesive.

Finally!

Some real info!

Thanks!!


Yes, it is a really good tape. I used it to tape a heavy gauge
extension cord across the garage floor to my table saw. I figured that
regular foot traffic would cause it to pull up after a while. Three
years later, the tape hadn't budged - when I had to pull it up to move
the saw, I had to use a heat gun/putty knife to get it off the bare
concrete. Very impressive adheasive.

Magilla Gorilla?


I bet you couldn't tape Michelle Obama arms with it. *I bet she could
tote a whole bale of cotton with those guns.


Yep and I doubt that you could tape Obama's mouth shut with it either.
