Rated 1 out of 5Â by ROBERT IT'S THE HD BOXES, NOT THE TAPE, THAT THE "LONG LASTING" SCOTCH TAPE DOESN'T STICK TO.
THIS IS A REPORT ON THE WAY THIS TAPE WORKS ONLY WITH HOME DEPOT PACKING BOXES. WE DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT IS THE TAPE OR THE BOXES THAT CAUSE THE TAPE TO PEEL OFF SPONTANEOUSLY. WE WILL REPORT AGAIN.
I'VE BOUGHT THE SCOTCH PACKAGING TAPE FOR YEARS, INCLUDING FOR OUR LAST MOVE, IN 2007, AND IT IS STILL STICKING TO THE BOXES THAT WE BOUGHT FROM HOME DEPOT.
THE "LONG-LASTING" VARIETY IN THE 3-PACK THAT I BOUGHT AT HD HAS BEEN WORKING FINE FOR MAILING AND OTHER HOUSEHOLD PURPOSES. THIS HAS THE UPC CODE 0 51131 85348 5.
BUT WHEN WE STARTED TO PACK FOR OUR UPCOMING MOVE, I USED THE LAST ROLL OF THE 3-PACK TO CLOSE SEVERAL OF HOME DEPOT'S NEW BOXES, AND IT ISN'T STICKING. AND I THINK THINK IT IS THE FINISH ON THE BOX THAT IS REJECTING THE TAPE.
THE BOXES I AM REFERRING TO ARE BROWN WITH RED AND GREEN PRINTING AND THE HOME DEPOT (FOR THE SMALL SIZE) SKU 369 894 WITH UPC CODE 8 51414 00216 2 AND (FOR THE MEDIUM SIZE) SKU 370 826 AND UPC CODE 8 51414 00217 9. THEY ARE WELL-MADEBY PRATT INDUSTRIES OF HUMBOLDT, TN FROM 100% RECYCLED PAPER, BUT THEY HAVE A SATIN FINISH THAT MOST OTHER BOXES DO NOT HAVE.
WE ARE USING THE SAME TAPE ON SOME OTHER BOXES NOT FROM HD, AND ARE GOING TO TRY SOME OTHER BRAND OF TAPE OR A DIFFERENT SCOTCH VARIETY. WE WILL WRITE AGAIN LATER REPORTING THE RESULTS OF THE TESTS.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bkmdano Somewhat old, but did the job eventually
I had hoped that with a name like 3M, there'd be good enough turnover of the product that I wouldn't end up with stale tape for my move. It was difficult to get the roll going, as it continued to shred the first yard or so. Eventually, it came good and provided sturdy binding of my boxes, so I give it more than one star.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by july0721 Horrible!
I'm sorry but I do not like this tape! I'm moving out of state and have been packing for over a month now. I bought this tape but I hate it. It doesn't hold well and is constantly coming off. I make sure I press down firmly when putting it on and I even criss-cross for a better hold but I have to keep going over the boxes I've packed and pressing the tape back on. Bad batch? Not sure, but I'm not impressed at all and I'm going to buy tape somewhere else, and a different brand (if there is any).

Does not stick well to Home Depot's 100% recycled boxes.

Rated 1 out of 5 Worst packing tape I've ever used
Bought this tape to use for cross country move when I ran out of tape from another brand. This tape did not have the strength and durability of the other brand and did not give me any confidence in its ability to hold together boxes for my move.
This tape splits easily causing strands of tape that are difficult to reunite. This happens frequently when trying to find the edge of the roll. It also breaks easily if you apply even a small amount of force while taping a box.
