Don’t use for shipping

This was on sale and I bought it seal shipping boxes. I made up a stack of boxes the started filling them and the tape is separating from the boxes before there’s even anything in them. Also, when I put it on the tape gun, I keep pulling out too long a strip because it pulls off the tape wheel too easily. It’s making shipping take longer because I have to check every seam and readhere it.

This product is no good. The guide tabs are too far from the blade, which means that the tape keeps falling away from the blade and having to be reset. I don't understand how anyone can like this product.

I've had this for years and still struggle with which way the roll of tape is supposed to face in the dispenser. I eventually figure it out and then forget by the time the next roll is needed. How about a video on scotch brand.com?

Quality Control going down the tubes!

I too have had strong faith is 3M products since that was pretty much the norm in our household since I was a child. I also use to work for a packaging company in Minnesota & I found they were extremally caring about how our packaging quality was. So I have been using their packaging tape for my shipments to customers for several years & this "sure start" is just horrible & doesn't stick to most cardboard boxes. I'm done as I don't have time to worry if my shipment is going to make it without loss. I don't know where it is made, but I hope you look into your quality control before everyone stops buying your products.

This tape is easy to use as far as getting it off the spool but it DOESN'T stick to the box. I used this product and by the time I got to Fedex for shipping they made me re wrap and repackage because the tape would not stay attached to the package. I took the brand new roll and threw it away. Duct products work much better.

Awesome Product

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used several tape dispensers and this is by far the smoothest one I’ve ever used. The tape pulls out very smoothly. It doesn’t stick to itself as you are reeling it out. It also adheres to surfaces very well. There is a little tab to put the cut end on so that it doesn’t go back onto the roll where it’s impossible to get it started again. I highly recommend this tape and dispenser.

High quality packing tape

Jess314 - 2 years ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this product to ship a box to a friend. It was a heavier quality tape that was easier to use than others I have used! I was able to find the end easier to get it started again and it tore easily. The only part was lifting it, it tore at the end and some got wasted but less than with other tapes. It was also quieter, which may sound weird but my son has some sensory issues and does not like the sound made by other tapes. I will definitely use again (I ship often!).

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received this tape last month from 3m to review. The tape works very well. adheres to the boxes and keeps the box closed and secure. Easily comes off the roll to use. I have not had any problem with the tape rolling up when you try to use it.

Quiet Packing Tape - Easy to Unroll

4 out of 5 stars
penmar - 2 years ago
originally posted on Scotch
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this to seal a box for mailing. The dispenser was a little awkward to use, perhaps I have the tape feeding incorrectly. It seems the dispenser with the handle is easier to use. I do love the tape itself. It was quiet when I rolled it across the box and easy to roll.

Very high-quality tape

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the tape from 3M and agreed to review it. It's genuinely the highest quality packing tape I've used in years. The adhesive is strong, the tape is thick, and I had no fear that the package would accidentally open in the mail. The "quiet unroll" feature was nice, too.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Tape is perfect width to seal boxes. Two of my children leave in different cities so I am always sending something to one of them. Tape is sticky enough to withstand abuse from package delivery personnel. Tape is priced well.

So quiet!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this item for free in exchange for my review. This product does what it says. It comes with a tab at then beginning that you remove to start taping - I just left it hanging on the end and cut the tape where I needed it for my box. The tape left in the plastic holder hasn't gotten stuck back to the roll so I can't say much about whether or not it split. The best part for me is that unrolling the tape onto my box was almost completely silent - that awful sound that is synonymous with using packing tape wasn't there! All I could here was the sound of the roll unwinding in the holder. I probably wouldn't even have noticed that if I wasn't listening for a sound. Great product!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 3M provided this product free to me for review. The opinion is all mine. What a great tape & dispenser. Making shipping a breeze! It was so easy to start the roll and the tape glides off the roll super easy. The adhesive is very strong. It made packing up my book very quick and effortless and I'm confident the strong quality of the adhesive will keep my package well sealed.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product free from 3M, in exchange for my honest review. I needed some packaging tape, so this product came along at exactly the right time! Unfortunately, I cannot give it a 5 star review. It was not "Sure Start", and I had to struggle to get the tape started and inserted into the dispenser. The packaging tape did unwind quiet and easy, and it was sturdy for my packages. I'd definitely recommend this product!

Best Packaging Tape

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tape is great to use on mailing packages and sealing a box up before storing it. The tape is easy to get off the reel and apply to a package. The sticky side has enough adhesive to keep large services closed and for a long time.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Scotch Sure Start Packaging tape was amazing! I used it to seal up some boxes that I needed to ship out and it did the job perfectly. I has absolutely no problem starting the roll of tape and when it eventually landed back on the roll (because they always do that) I had no problem restarting it! No weird tearing or stripping down the roll - just perfectly started with no hassles. Will definitely buy in the future.

Easiest to use shipping tape

Chef 66 - 2 years ago
originally posted on Scotch
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Timing is everything as I received my free Scotch Sure Start tape during the packing up of my in-laws as they were scheduled to move in a few weeks. Since all family members were enlisted to help, I was the only one the new Sure Start Tape and I became the fastest sealer of the boxes. This tape is so easy to use it was incredible. It unwinds off the roll with ease, it doesn’t break or split and cuts easily. Since everyone else was struggling with other tapes I was elected to seal all boxes. Plus it came off the role quietly. I gladly accepted the challenge due to this product. I did not want to use any other tape as this tape really did spoil me. As a big user of packaging tape for many chores around house I stock up on Sure Start Tape.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was given a sample of the Scotch Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape by 3M to try and review. I love this product! It is a staple in my home. Not only do I use it to routinely ship packages in the mail but I also use it for various things about the house. My husband is a handyman...he uses this tape all the time too. It is definitely a preferred brand in our home.
