Customer Reviews


This is the best clear packing tape. It comes with its own dispenser and cutting blade, so it’s very convenient. We go through tons of it both at home and at the office.

Scott S. from Kaur Dental Group on 11/15/2021

This heavy duty packing tape from Scotch does the trick. It has a lot tape included for our boxing and food storage wrappings. And the built in sharp edge helps o do jobs one handed.

Deries P. from Gabriel Jung Arts on 03/14/2020

This 3M Scotch 2''x22yards heavy-duty packaging tape is exactly as expected. The dispenser makes packing up boxes that much easier. Tape is sticky and secures packages well.

Daniel Z. on 11/12/2019

This packing tape works excellent! I do a lot of shipping, so it's always nice to have a few rolls on hand and within reach.

Sam M. on 10/05/2019

This stuff is top quality, and I use it for all of my packaging needs! I sell things on ebay, so I happen to need it a lot. Highly recommend.

Ariel H. on 07/14/2019

Excellent product, it is Scotch after all! It’s so strong it can hold a paper decor ball! We use to secure cake boxes for large boxes, etc.

Amber C. on 03/26/2019

This tape is perfect for our online business. We use it to secure our baked items which we ship. The tape dispenser is a huge time saver, as you don't have to search for the tape end and then cut with scissors.

Baljit D. on 03/11/2019

Of course locks of some paper boxes are not enough to keep your goods safe and fresh. I’m supporting the sides and edges with this tape.

Mustafa T. from WOM Coffee LLC on 08/01/2018

Most scotch tape is always quite thick and adhesive. There is no difference with this tape. I particularly like to use this to tape the bottom of boxes that will be handled a lot.

Hai N. on 04/05/2018

Easily the best packaging tape I’ve ever used. It’s thick so you don’t have to use a ton of it to secure a heavy box.

Jessica on 03/30/2018

I have always preferred 3M tape due to its durability and strength. This is even stronger than their original tape and great for packages that are heavier.

Angela on 03/05/2018

It's tape! What can I say? This is a pretty small roll in comparison to the normal size, but the dispenser is easy to handle, so that's a plus.

Kayla R. from KRW on 01/26/2018

The 3M Scotch heavy duty packaging tape with dispenser is good for sealing boxes for storage or shipment. The compact dispenser makes for an easy, on the go "all in one" system.

Lance J. from Lance on 12/31/2017

This packing tape is the best. Not only is it heavy duty, but it actually sticks to the package and comes on a dispenser that makes it easy to use. You can’t go wrong with the Scotch brand.

Danielle H. on 12/19/2017

This is great packaging tape that doesn’t require scissors or the frustration that most packaging tapes come with. It easily rolls on and cuts without any issues!

Pamela W. on 11/16/2017

Great small handheld size easy to pack or have in bag or pocket in between taping and does cut off tape well and seems to hold cardboard boxes nicely even though it's a thinner tape

Twins A. on 10/24/2017

This is easily my favorite packaging tape. Scotch products are always very high quality. This tape is easy to tear off and it never rips.

Vivian B. on 10/24/2017

Great scotch packing tape. It is very heavy duty and perfect for taping up heavy, ligh, big, or small boxes you are going to ship.

Rachel H. on 10/19/2017

The company 3M makes very high quality products. This heavy duty packing tape is great to use when shipping items that are heavy and could bust open the box. The dispenser makes it easy to cut the tape when applying. This is a hghi quality packing tape and although it is not the most inexpensive tape it is one of the best.

Brandon G. from Dig & Serve on 10/19/2017

This is great packing tape. It's 2" x 22 yards and is clear. The tape dispenses from unit easily. The tape sticks nice and easy.

Elijah on 10/01/2017

This Scotch two inch by twenty-two yards Heavy Duty Packaging Tape with Dispenser is great and I would definitely recommend. The unit feels solid and the dispenser is a bonus and no need to worry about losing the end of the tape. The tape fits nicely in the unit which has an easy to use design.

Jason M. on 09/14/2017

What a decent heavy duty packing tape dispenser… I like how it's all in one the tape and dispenser really can't go wrong with products from the 3M Company

Bistro L. from Place To Be Bistro on 08/10/2017

This is my go to product- the tape is of the highest quality out there- the dispenser makes it easy to use and cut - packing is a breeze!

Eric H. on 08/04/2017

Wow this 3M heavy duty packing tape with dispenser is very very strong and easy to use I could seal the box up with the phone in my hand no problems great product

Mike R. from N/A on 07/03/2017

This is a super packing tape dispenser to keep in every drawer. It is a compact size but it holds a quality packaging tape from Scotch, which is a brand synonymous with tape! I pack up a lot of boxes to ship up my products and this is a tape I can always rely on to keep my packages secure.

Bridget D. from Sugar Buff on 06/06/2017

High quality packing take from a name brand that doesn't split down the middle. Its definitely a thicker tape for a great price! Highly recommended
