Hand tearable?

I'm looking for 3M hand tearable mailing tape for packages…does Home Depot carry that product?

Scotch 1.88 in. x 54.6 yds. Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I have used 3M tape exclusively to ship 700 packages - very happy. Bought 2 rolls of Sure Start and HATE the stuff. It may be easy to start but doesn't stick. Load up on older product and then plan to switch to another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money and time Bought this tape in a 3 roll pack. Sorry now that i did. Not sticky enough, useless as a packaging tape. Worst feature is how easy tape comes off the roll. Picked it up and about 20 feet of tape on the floor as it rolled away.Had to buy different tape to complete the packing job. Stay away. You have been warned.Would have rated zero stars if possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sure, it starts... As advertised, this tape starts easily. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about it. It sticks very poorly, rendering it almost useless as shipping tape. It also cuts very poorly using a standard shipping tape dispenser, perhaps because it comes off the roll so easily and thus doesn't provide enough tension for the dispenser to work. Ultimately, I'm extremely dissatisfied with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thick but no Stick Bought this from Walmart home delivery with grocery's. It barely sticks to standard cardboard boxes. I can remove it easily from a box without tearing a layer of cardboard that you would expect. Worked for a wholesale distributor of construction supplies so was around packaging tape for 20 yrs there and have used packaging tapes all thru my life and I'm 65 now. Never seen anything like this tape... Clear to the core I guess because not much stickum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Sure Start Shipping tape was so easy to use! I have RA and have difficulty using some products, but this dispenser was simple to use and I did not have to spend extra time trying to find the end of the tape. The adhesive is strong enough to tape shut the box I needed to send and it unwound effectively and efficiently. The cutter worked correctly with very little pressure. I highly recommend this product for those who need an easy-to-use tape with dispenser. A good value for the money. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tape Ever! I use this tape for shipping online orders for a year now. Very easy to use with the dispenser and cutting blade, never have to find the opening and scissors again. Strong and durable tape that holds the carton in great condition when it is delivered to the customer, even when the carton is huge and heavy! We often receive compliments on our packing, and thanks to Scotch for such a great product! This is the only shipping tape that we would ever use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure Thing I use thise tape all the time and it's so convenient , unwinding quickly and strong so I can securely use less. I always have plenty on hand for items I must get out! It always looks professional.
