Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Remodel Edge Lock? I Don't think So - Garbage
bought this tape specifically for the "edge lock" so we could get nice crisp lines but ended up with lots of bleed through and the tape peeling up before i even finished.
Surface is a textured painted wall in the living room, surface was prepped (dusted and wiped before taping) and tape was laid flat not pulled tight. Then I went over the edge again, making sure to push the tape firmly to seal the edge against the texture.
By the time I got to the other end of the wall - (30 mins) the tape was peeling up from the edge, I reapplied pressure to the edge of the tape but still got bleed through.
I ended up correcting the problem by simply cutting in the edge by hand - this tape is garbage.
Definitely not worth their premium price - the cheap masking tape works best, lesson learned.

Does not stick. I did the baseboards and chair rail of my dining room. I had 2 rolls of different brand tapes that had a few yards leftover in them, so I used those up first. Then I went out and bought the 3M Advanced Multi Surface tape SPECIFICALLY designed for trim to finish the job. Big mistake. I didn't have time to paint the same night I taped and planned to paint the next day. To my big surprise, I walked in the room the next morning to find the 3M product peeling back or simply not sticking in many places. meanwhile my frog tape and the other cheapy non-brand name stuff I used up were still perfectly in place. All the trim was prepped the same: dusted, cleaned, and dried so there is no excuse for this. I wasted my time and my money buying this product and will never use it again.

This tape is junk. I was creating a grid to paint squares on a single wall and the tape started just falling off the wall before I could even finish.

We spent literally hours taping a diamond pattern on the wall with this tape. It didn't seem to stick well at all, but I went over every edge of every line in front of my husband as he rolled paint onto the wall, so the edges were down as he painted. Every single line leaked -- the only places where the tape actually gave a clean line was where it crossed over itself! I will now have to redo every single line on the entire wall with a small paint brush, which is going to take me days to do. The wall was clean and dry, there was absolutely no reason why good painter's tape should not have worked perfectly. I will never buy this product again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bentechhb The worst!
I would always buy 3M products over any others until now. Working on a high-end kitchen I had to mask some small areas for paint. I got the job to remove the tape and paper after the painters left. The paint had bonded to the edge of the tape stronger than the tape itself, which left slivers of blue tape that had to be removed with a knife-involving a lot of wasted time. During the masking process we would hear a sound from the other end of the kitchen where we had finished masking and the tape had fallen off the trim. For six dollars a roll I expect better than this-especially with the 3M brand. I will try other brands in future.

This tape is awful! When it was removed it ripped along the painted edge and even took the new paint along with the old paint off the wall! Will never buy again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Taper4 Worst Tape Ive ever used
Bought this tape for a large project, 14 day removal ?? good luck getting the tape to even stick to the wall for 14 minutes. This tape fell off the wall every time I turned around to tape something else and made my project 10x harder than it needed to be

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cpg2 Not worth the premium price
For the record, I am a residential painting contractor, I purchase Scotch Blue as my go to painter's tape, but for higher end bathrooms, I have used this product in the past and liked it much better than Frog Tape.
The last couple of jobs, the tape just "puckered" on the edges, never wet or moisture damaged, after taking off the protective wrap.
It did not adhere, was not worth a 2X cost difference between my go to Scotch Blue.
Never again on Edge Loc!
