I am the book review editor for a professional journal. Every three months, I send 20 or 30 books out to reviewers in the United States and Canada. Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape really helps me get all of the books packed and ready to ship quickly. It is strong and adheres well to the shipping envelopes. It also helps to reinforce the address labels, assuring that the packages reach their destinations safely. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It wraps and seals well. If that were my only criterion, I'd give it five stars. However, it is virtually impossible to re-thread the tape. I just gave up: I rip off what I need and apply it manually. If only instructions were available (sigh!). That being the case, it's completely useless to me.

Makes life at work easier

By Badtoad

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I have to open, inspect, and re-tape many packages a day at work. I bought this dispenser and tape to make the job better, and it has reduced time on each piece and made me more effective at my job. I love this product!

Big question...

By Red Tape

from Geneva, Switzerland

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

What is the mil thickness on this tape? We were surprised to see that nowhere is it specified-- not on the packaging, not on the roll, and not on the website! Given the negative reviews here about its failure to stick, we're going to return it and order another brand that does tell us about its actual thickness!

Worst Packaging Tape Ever!

By Rich S

from Bluffton, SC, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

Purchased multiple rolls (20-25) of both regular duty packaging tape as well as "heavy duty" shipping/packaging tape. Tape does not stick to boxes at all, so you end up having to go completely around each box to allow the tape to stick to itself. Even comes loose from bubble wrap. If you want to use twice as much tape as should be needed, buy this product.

Worst tape ever.

By Jcagle316

from Bergen County, NJ, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

We bought several roles of this for taping boxes for a move. That is all that is sold at Home Depot for this type of thing. It will not stay on the boxes. It randomly peals off at the worst possible time. Finally found something that works and IT ISN'T SCOTCH BRAND....... This tape sucks. Is it too much to ask that tape stay on?

I used this tape on boxes from Home Depot and Lowe's. After a few days the tape released from the box and I had to retake them. I don't recommend using this product.

3M-Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape with Dispenser

By paula

from Staten Island, NY

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

The Tape is very thing now; not the way it was in prior years. It also sticks onto itself before you have a chance to actually tape something with - more like fly paper now. I have purchased so many times with no headaches. The Tape is not the same. It has become just a thin packaging tape now.

Does not stick

By Val T

from Norristown, PA, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I purchased an eight pack of scotch premium performance packaging tape a month ago. Needless to say I did not think there would be a problem. Now I can't find my receipt. I loaded a tape gun finding the tape does not stick. I tried another roll and the same thing occurred. I am very disappointed. I thought I was buying the best packaging tape for the job. I now have 8 rolls of nonstick tape. This was money down the drain!

Doesn't stick!

By Dale

from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I bought this several weeks ago so I don't have the receipt anymore, but after first use found that this tape doesn't stick AT ALL. Totally dry! All that is on the dispenser is a long strip of plastic with no glue! What the heck? Would like my money back.

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

The tape is great but the dispenser is a joke ! And then you provide a little white paper , with the bar code trying to explain how to load the tape. The example pictures are so small you need a mag. glass to read them !

Would be a good product if it worked

By Gail

from Falls Church, VA, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I bought this tape to secure typical brown moving boxes. The tape fails miserably and does not stick. I've gone through several roles, and always come back to boxes with the tape hanging off, after coming loose because it does not stick. This answers the question why, if you receive a box by mail, it is encased I'm the tape. It's an attempt to secure the package. I'm sure that sales are,high because you have to use so much for every box. It's a junky product.

3650 Moving and Packing Tape (Long lasting)

By Sandy

from Apple Valley, MN

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I just purchased the above tape and used to pack boxes for a move. This is the most worthless tape I have ever used. The tape just falls off the cardboard moving boxes after about one day. I will NEVER buy your awful tape again!

Worst packaging tape ever!

By thespottedfawn

from Lincoln, NE, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I bought a 2 pack of this tape and I have never regretted anything more. This tape is impossible to peel off. It will peel off in little pieces so you end up wasting a ton of tape just to get a solid piece. Never, ever buying this tape again.

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

This is crazy!! I just want to tape a box and use the dispenser I paid for and I cant get it to thread through the slot. No diagrams or anything on the dispenser either. It shouldn't be that difficult, what's the problem?

The best! There is no other shipping tape to use!

By Sammibrea

from South Jersey

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I have been shipping items for many years and after the fiasco I had today with an off brand , I will never ever use anything else but Scotch brand. I usually have a rolls on hand but fell low and sent the husband out to pick up a roll. It was the worst time I ever had sealing a package. I told him that he is only to buy Scotch brand, or better yet, I will never run out of it. Time to Stockpile...:)

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I go through a lot of packaging tape and I can't afford to waste time with the type of tape that refuses to become unstuck from itself. This Scotch Heavy Duty tape with the dispenser is a dream of ease and efficiency. Thanks, 3M!

Having trouble

By cardinal505

from College Station, TX, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I am an elementary teacher and use this tape for many many things in the classroom. One of the biggest uses is to tape name plates on student desks. I have never had any trouble until this year. The tape will not stay down on the desks. I bought a multi pack of tape and have tried all the rolls. I have wiped the tables with water, then the school's cleaner and then Clorox wipes. The tape comes up after each cleaning. Help! What do I need to do?

IMPOSSIBLE!

By jackthemailman

from West Georgia

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

The tape itself is the same ol', same ol' we all know and love. But ... the "new" dispenser is useless. And I do mean USELESS! I fished my old, broken one out of the trash so I could tape a box up for storage. I'm going to try to saw some "teeth" into the new dispenser. Wish me luck.

Packaging Tape ripped in my hand!

By Mimi

from Spencerport, NY

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I have purchased Scotch brand heavy duty tape for years to ship packages to my family. I purchased a 38.2 yd heavy duty 20x stronger roll again today but unfortunately, while wrapping the large package, the tape ripped in my hands a number of times. Totally disappointed and surprised. I hope it is just a bad batch. 0 51131 96134 0

Bad Design

By Casey 1

from San Jose, CA, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I buy t his all the time to seal my packages. I don't know how many times the tape keeps tearing and I can't use it. I spent an hour this morning trying to get one started and it kept tearing in pieces. This happens all the time and I have to throw it away. This is the second one this month.

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I have a roll of Scotch heavy duty packaging tape. It is totally useless to me--it doesn't have any stickiness to it. I am very disappointed, not to mention being poorer for buying it. I have had it long enough that I don't have a receipt for it nor do I remember where I bought it.

Terrible tape

By klpsnow

from Lansing, MI, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I have bought Scotch shipping tape for years. However, the latest roll I purchased and tried to use today is just terrible. It is SO sticky, it sticks hard to itself. I cannot get a full width piece to even get it started to use on the dispenser. It breaks off in little pieces and is next to impossible to pry off the roll. I'm so annoyed with the this roll.

Worst tape ever!

By alequin31

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I bought this tape about a week ago and the tape did not have any type of adhesive. The roll basically became undone as soon as you pulled the tape off. On top of that the tape was really expensive. Very dissatisfied with the quality of the product.

NOT Sticky. Will not stick to regular cardboard.

By Tim in Hollywood

from Undisclosed

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

Based on all of the rave reviews, I must have received a bad batch or something. I got a small box of these 1.5" cores on the plastic dispensers. I took one small roll (out of the small box of them) with me to a convention, so that I could pack up everything when the show was complete. When I put it on the first box, I noticed that something was very wrong. It would barely stick to the box. I noticed that it would barely even stick to my fingers. I then tried to seal a couple boxes with it. However, buy the time I got to the next box, it was already coming off of the previous box. When pulled it off of the roll, it was nearly as sticky on the "adhesive" side as it was on the back. This was huge mess for me. It was the only roll of tape I had (I only had 6-7 boxes to seal). When I got back, I noticed that the other brand-new rolls were the same. Very disappointing. :-(

Couldn't run my household without it!

By Dodie

from Omaha, Nebraska, United States

Comments about 3M Scotch Tan Packaging Tape (3850T):

I use this tape for everything! It is so dependable and ALWAYS comes off the roll easily without sticking to everything before it reaches the job for which it was intended. I make sure I always have it on hand, and have even given it to 11 girl friends as the little Christmas gift that each of our 12 Bunko Buddies gives to each other.
