Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to apply & really grips! I used this roll adhesive to install new vinyl flooring in a small entryway about 4 by 9'. Didn't want to use the normal adhesive (that you'd apply with a notched trowel) because we couldn't prevent foot traffic long enough for that other kind of adhesive to cure. This adhesive tape was very quick and easy to use. I used it around the perimeter of the area, about 1/2 inch in from the edge of the vinyl, plus one strip the long way in the center of the piece. Extremely easy to use, and once in place this tape REALLY holds! I suggest you cut your vinyl almost to size first, then roll the vinyl up long-wise. Lay the installation tape down on your subfloor leaving the top "non-stick" paper temporarily on the strip. Pull off about a 2 foot section of the top paper to reveal the sticky surface. Position the edge of the vinyl on that paper and very lightly press into place. Unroll the vinyl to check that it still fits where you want it to go; re-position if needed. Then roll the vinyl back up again, and, working a small segment at a time, pull off the top paper strip from the adhesive tape & roll the vinyl out on it, making sure you have no big air pockets and pressing lightly as you go. When the entire vinyl sheet is in place, make any final trim cuts along the edges. Lastly, go back and press down firmly everywhere the adhesive tape is underneath. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tape made the floor look like a professional installed it. I laid down the vinyl and it fit but bubbled up along the edges where it touched the base boards/trim. I didn't want to start shaving off the edges in 1/8 inch slivers so I laid down the grip tape and the floor laid flat. It looks great. Added some molding and I am very proud of this project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Double-Sided Adhesive Tape I purchased this product on October 25, 2010. I needed a sticky double-sided tape product to securely install Home Depot's "TrafficMaster Active Tile" to four tool bin tops but also required it to be removed at a later date when the tile is no longer serviceable. This tape is the ticket! After measuring and cutting each tile to ensure a flush fit, I installed two pieces in an "X" pattern on the reverse side prior to placement on the tool bin tops. You have no worries of the tile shifting...even when moving heavy tools and equipment on the tile. Purchase THIS if you need to secure anything. On a test run with the double-backed tape and a small piece of tile, I confirmed that the tiles are removable (if so desired at a later date)--with a little bit of elbow grease. BUY! You will NOT be disappointed. October 26, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well Used the tape to hold down the linoleum floor that was installed in my kitchen. They don't glue it anymore so it was coming up in spots and this took care of it. April 7, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sticks to everything except the floor Maybe I just don't know how to use something like this properly, but I could not get it to just stick to the floor. I was using this to repair a hole that was torn in my very inexpensive vinyl floors. It stuck to my fingers, the scissor, and anything else it came close to, but I had a horrible time getting it to stay on the floor between the floor and the vinyl. You would cut a piece off, but to pick that piece off of the roll, you had to touch the tape and then it was stuck to your fingers. It has protective backing on one side, but you have to touch the other side to maneuver it and that's when everything goes sideways. I eventually just used little rolled up balls of the stuff under the vinyl. Not perfect, but it worked. April 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very strong two way tape great, strong great to seal the Allure Vinyl plank flooring along the outside edges April 30, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by not what I wanted I wanted a double stick tape to temporarily hold 2 boards together for planning a thin board. This is all I could find in store. It didn't work well for my task, but I believe it will work well on vinyl install. I had to go to Lowes to find the tape I wanted. January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best tape I ever bought I was shock how easy it was to use this tape. It did a very fantastic job holding the vinyl down when you need to attach other pieces to it. when I got the tape on my finger to see how strong it was, I was very surprise and how easy it was to use. This made my job easier. Thank you. January 27, 2015
