Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary I have the toughest job on the planet, and this tape WORKS!
I maintain a trap-neuter-return feral cat colony in a wilderness area on South Beach, Staten Island, NY, and I use Gorilla tape to seal, weather- and waterproof the seams of my colony's winter shelters. It is simply a fact that warm, dry shelters are more important to winter survival than food or water, and TNR caretakers in upstate, NY report that, on particularly bitter nights, their cats are joined in their shelters by possums and skunks, all of them huddling together without rancor, so critical is the warmth to their survival.
I make my shelters out of repurposed Styrofoam crates, lined with a mylar-like, heat reflecting material, then stuffed with straw bedding, and wrapped on the exterior in a tough-as-nails, weatherproof, U.S. Army surplus packaging material. I also make shelters out of plastic storage tubs lined with a sealed inner sanctum of Owens-Corning insulation Styrofoam, which in turn is lined with heat reflecting material and stuffed with straw. The entire top of the shelter is then double sealed with the U.S. Army surplus material. Every single place I have a seam or a seal, I have Gorilla tape. I simply apply it, then burnish vigorously to remove air bubbles and meld the edge of the tape to the substrate. It is the easiest material in the world to use.
My colony site is in a knotweed forest in a wilderness area. In summer, the air is still and the heat and humidity are tropical. Rains fall hard and the wet evaporates slowly. That Gorilla tape never budges, yields, or leaks. In winter, the nor'easters roll in with gale force winds and horizontal precipitation, and the wind chill temps plunge well below zero. Water poured from a cup is ice when it hits the ground. I have to carry boiling hot water and warmed food in a thermal carrier so my animals' meals don't freeze before fully consumed. That Gorilla tape never grows brittle, never separates, never yields.
The only time it doesn't hold is the two times a year when I slice the seams and open the shelters to air and sun and clean and re-stuff with fresh straw. Which is why I use tape in the first place.
I bought my first roll of Gorilla tape at Home Depot in August, 2012, to repair a tear in a shelter cover. In October, Hurricane Sandy covered the colony site with a 15-foot storm surge and washed my shelters away (all the cats survived). Months later and a football field away, I spied one of my shelters in a thicket of Sandy debris. I managed to tease it out and look it over. It was the shelter I had repaired in August, and though it was too full of smelly muck ever to reuse, the Gorilla tape repair remained intact. So, like New Jersey, Gorilla tape is 'stronger than the storm'.
I would never consider using anything else, and I cannot imagine another product that could perform anywhere near as perfectly and be as simple to use. Recommend it to anyone.

I have been using this tape for over 5 years. It is the most durable and sticky tape available.

Amazing product. Used the tape to secure bisquene (poly plastic ) to brick in order to provide a seal between the brick wall and leaking roof. Cover the roof with poly wrap and secure the wrap to the wall. The tape held up through minus 3 degree F temperature, wind, rain and several inches of snow. The tape has been installed for 2 months and still holding. Just need a few more weeks until we replace the roof.

The gorilla tape is the only tape that will hold pieces of the under carriage of the bumper on one of our cars. It's an annoying piece on the car, that always seems forgotten when sending the car in for repair. All other tapes do not last, or do not even stick with all the moisture from all of this snow lately. Great product. Should keep this in all cars, at all times.

Yes it cost more. But as the saying goes 'You Get What You Pay For'. This tape is the best duct tape I have found. Most will harden over time or not stick when it is cold. We used this to plastic our windows in Michigan. Even with -30 to -40 degree wind chills this tape continues to hold. Only down fall is when you want to remove it. It will peal the paint right off of your walls.

Look around, do you not have access to a Swiss Army Knife and a good role of Duct Tape? Add some chewing gum and a paperclip or two and you have the makings of a geosynchronous satellite.
If not, stop now, and get some before you do anything else. Your life or that of someone close to you could depend upon it. MacGyver is your co-pilot.
Gorilla Tape is a better, improved version of your Dad's Duct Tape. It doesn't separate into strings and the deep greenish black color is oh so much better for everything.
Doesn't stick so good when tape is below freezing. Stop and have a beer until it warms up.
Not as good for structural repairs to concrete foundations as one might think
