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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mel Read the Poor Reviews because they are correct
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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SmallBizWhiz Would be better used as a post-it note
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.

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.

Does a great job of keeping the paint off of the trim. Tears pretty easy and comes in many different thickness to provide excellent coverage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DW Poor quality!
It will not stick to normal drywall with orange texture. You put it up pressing firmly - then three hours later it is laying it the floor. Very disappointed.
I can't speak to its performance during painting because it would not stay on the wall long enough to paint. I had to make another trip to the store and purchase another brand.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mkm1 Would not adhere to drywall easily
When I first applied it to some textured drywall, it would not adhere despite some good pressure being applied. However, it did stick and hold after repeated attempts, but the whole exercise was very odd, since I have used this brand of tape quite a bit over the years.

This product was easy to put down and take up. It protected my floor from paint
