When Influenster sent me a big fat roll of T-Rex tape, I was stoked. I've always been a loyal duck (not necessarily "Duck") tape user, going back to age 16 when my 1974 VW bug would spring a leak one minute, then need some emergency engine repair to keep all its parts together.
Over the years, the flimsiness and constant attention required when using cheaper tapes lead me to that primate brand. It was tough and lasted longer than any tape I could easily rip from the roll using my teeth.
You're going to need a blade to remove a strip of T-Rex tape, but that's how you know you'll be able to "stick it and forget it." Over the past few weeks, it's been the sealant savior on a drafty outdoor freezer, the solution to a very loud and annoying short in my car's alarm system, the GOAT of gasket repair, how I kept the same band-aid on despite incessant humid sweating, and an elegantly functional present-wrapping tool.
It's thick. It's strong. It's sticky. This T-Rex isn't going extinct anytime soon.
Well, there is. I was surprised at how much stronger and durable this T-Rex tape was when compared to other brands. I've used it to fix kids' toys. I've used it to hang fiberglass to put around a window air conditioner. I even used it to fix a broken shower curtain ring, and that's where the durability shines. This tape gets wet sitting up in my shower. But it has stayed strong, not wilting, curling, or crumbling in that moist, hot environment.
All in all, I really like my T-Rex tape and would buy it again.
There are two drawbacks, which is why I didn't leave a perfect score. First, it is a bit harder to unroll (because it is so sticky) and harder to tear. You can certainly still get a piece of tape with just your bare hands, but it isn't as easy as other brands. And second, twice I've had the tape fail to tear completely through, leaving a little strand of tape on the edge of the roll. This was easy enough to deal with, but it was still annoying.
So that's that. I highly recommend this product.
I was given this product free in exchange for my review.
From the beginning you could tell it was a stronger tape. We even got it wet and it still held. One thing I also like is that it is easy to tear off a strip but it holds very well. It amazes me how well this works.
The only con I can say about this tape is that I can't find it in my local store - YET. I ask the managers to bring it in stock and they tell me they will.
My suggestion. Go out and get this if you want a strong holding tape!
