Gorilla Tape

gorilla_tape.jpgFrom the amazing company that brought us Gorilla Glue and Gorilla PVC glue, comes Gorilla Tape. It's been out for a while, but we've been using it lately and are starting to realize how great it actually is.

Gorilla Tape has 2-3 times the adhesive of regular duct tape, allowing it to fill gaps and stick better. It also has an extra strong backing, so it won't rip (but you can still tear it with your hands).

We were first given a role by a friend who is a full convert and won't even buy regular duct tape anymore. After using it for a bit, we can see why. According to Gorilla's website, duct tape is meant for smooth, flat surfaces, while the features on Gorilla Tape make it ideal for a more uneven and rugged operation (which is pretty much 94% of what you end up using duct tape for anyway).

You can get a 35 yard roll for under $10. By comparison, regular duct tape is around half that (prices vary by brand quite a bit). There is more information on Gorilla Tape at the Gorilla Website. If you've never been there, it's a great site and worth checking out just so you can watch the gorilla fingers wiggle.
