I have used many different methods to apply masking tape when I paint. Often I find this the most tedious part of the process. I decided to try the Scotch Blue Painter's Tape Applicator. WOW!!! I just masked my entire bedroom in less than 30 minutes. And we are talking a 12'x15' room with 2 windows and 3 doors... I masked baseboards all the way around the room from one door to the other with one piece! This is the best 9 bucks I have spent in a long time.

I love this thing! I am a novice painter, I just bought a house and a friend suggested this tool to me. Taping without it is a job, with the tool, it's very simple. Wish they made applicators in different sizes, but this will do for me!
Also, my dad - who is an experienced painter- liked using it too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by beachinredbull great tape..dispenser not so great
The tape is good as usual, but the dispenser was pretty much a waste and didn't do the job I expected. I had to tear off individual pieces, which makes the dispenser useless. I wouldn't recommend getting the product/dispenser combo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comehere Didn't Know I Needed It Until I Had It in My Hands
I received this product from 3M as a sample to evaluate. This is one of those "duh" inventions - why didn't anyone think of this before! It's an easy to use product that dispenses the great-3M blue tape and you don't have to struggle with trying to peel off the jagged edge from just the roll. The only drawback was that the sample tape was the 1" wide and I prefer the wider one (this is easily remedied by purchasing the desired size). I am going to use it to tape down cut-open plastic bags as a paint cloth the next time I am painting a wall - I think it's going to be sooo much easier that before!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CRob12 Excellent
I received this as a sample and was very pleased. I don't have the steadiest of hands so the dispenser was a God send. It goes on straight and easy so saves time in having to keep taking it off and placing it down again to have it straight. Only took one shot. Leaves no residue when you are finished and comes off easily. Pulls smoothly so you don't have to strain pulling it and cuts off with ease. never need to find the end of the tape either. I found this to be a great addition to the line making it much quicker and easier to get ready to paint.

I received this product free from 3M to try. It is a great idea and makes taping long edges so much easier. The applicator is easy to use and definitely a time saver. Thanks!
