Product Overview

The ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator is the go-to tool for faster, easier prep with precision. The new ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator applies painter's tape in one continuous strip, with an easy-to-hold circular grip and a felt pad that gently glides across surfaces. Great for use on trim, baseboards, windows, and door frames. And the sharp blade provides a straight, precise cut.
  • Performance: faster, easier prep with precision vs. applying 3M paper-backed tapes by hand
  • Application: applies tape in one continuous strip on trim, baseboards, windows, and door frames
  • Easy to use: easy to hold circular grip with a felt pad that gently glides across surfaces
  • Tight seal: plastic rollers secure tape to surface with a tight seal
  • Sharp blade: for a quick, precise cut
  • Tape width: works with standard 36 mm/1.41 width tape rolls
  • Includes: A 20 yd. starter roll of ScotchBlue Original Painter's Tape for multi-surface performance
  • Days clean removal: 14-day interior and exterior Clean removal leaves behind no damage or sticky residue
  • To reload tape: just twist to unlock and pull apart to open, insert new roll of 36mm/1.41 wide tape and twist to lock
  • Application tips: for great paint results make sure the surface is clean, dry, and dust-free so that the tape sticks properly; next apply the tape onto the surface; and lastly, let the tape set for about 30 to 60 minutes before painting
  • Removal tips: wait until the paint is dry to the touch before removing the tape; lift it up by slowly pulling it back on itself, then removing at a 45-degree angle

Easy application
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm glad i had this on hand. I used this along my baseboards and it worked like a charm. The application was made easy with the roller. Another plus: the tape actually stayed in place for as long as I needed it to (I had a bad experience with another brand tape falling off the wall during painting). I am very pleased and will buy again.

    A Must-Have Tool For Painting Projects!!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 3M has done it again with their latest innovative and ingenious ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator! If you're painting a room in your house, doing an upgrade, or even building a new house, this new product from 3M is a must-have tool for projects that involve painting. Painter's tape is a necessity when painting walls, trim, etc., but wouldn't it be nice to actually have a device that literally guides your tape in a continuous motion and then cutting with precision before taping your next wall? Well, now you can thanks to the new ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator! It provides a guide when lining walls or trim and even has a soft padded base on the bottom to keep your tape moving for a straight, continuous, and easy motion. It also has rollers that help secure & seal the painter's tape to whatever surface you may be taping. In addition to that, the precise cut you get every time from the sharp blade makes prepping your walls, trim, etc. so much more convenient, quick, and easy! The new 3M ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator cuts prep time for painting in half and I must admit, much neater with my projects!! If you're looking for a more convenient way to prepare for painting, not to mention the significant ease in which to do it, I highly recommend the ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Applicator and added bonus....the applicator even comes with a starter roll of painter's tape from 3M that gives you twenty yards!! What's not to love?!!

      Good item that serves it's purpose!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good item that serves its purpose. It even sticks to wood surfaces (which can be hard for other sorts of tape). I first tried 3M's painters tape years ago and have used it for many things since then. This tape is something you put along the line where you don't want paint to go. It serves as a barrier between where you are painting and where you don't want to paint yet. For those of us (like me) that don't have the most steady of hands anymore this is a really good tool and it makes the painting process go more smoothly. This is especially useful if you have beams or trim. It can protect it while you paint the larger surfaces. It is also useful in painting the trim if you like white walls but just want to add a dash of color here and there.

        Great timesaver!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a sample of this product and I couldn't be happier with it. I needed to paint my bathroom and it had a ton of tricky areas - crown molding, lots of corners, and different edges for virtually every surface. Thankfully, the Painter's Tape Applicator saved the day by saving me a TON of time! I was able to apply painter's tape quickly and neatly, without having to stop, position, and manually cut strips of painter's tape. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to paint quickly yet ensure a professional result!

          This tool is a real helper for getting painters tape placed close to the edges. You do have to remember to press the edges into the area you want to keep paint from and watch the roll of tape to ensure it stays against the wall.

          It is definitely a great product to have if you have to tape off areas to be painted. It is, however a little cheaply made. Would recommend for the price and time saved.
