    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello - Thank you for asking. This shipping packaging tape works best with its dispenser. Find the dispenser here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Scotch-1-88-in-x-54-6-yds-Heavy-Duty-Shipping-Packaging-Tape-with-Dispenser-3850-RD-DC/100149185.

        Q:Can you use this on a dispenser that originally fits 1.88 in. x 22.2 yds. tape?
        by|Jun 11, 2021

        Answer This Question

        A:  Obviously the width is the same, but I don't know how big your original holder is. These are 3 inch diameter cores.

        by|Jun 14, 2021

        A:  I use it without dispenser because I prefer that way .

        by|Oct 7, 2021

          A:  Great Question! The Scotch 1.88 in x 54.6 yard Heavy Duty Packaging Tape comes on a 3" diameter tape core and will not fit the dispenser that fits the tape 1.88 in x 22.2 yards on the 1-1/2 in diameter core. If you need more help, contact our team at 1-800-328-6276 Mon-Fri 8:00-4:30 CT and reference Case 24485623.

            A:  Didn’t use a dispenser

            by|Apr 19, 2023

            A:  I'd say that it depends on the dispenser. If the 22.2 yard tape spool seemed tight, I'd advise against it, but most seem to work just fine. Just be aware that this stuff is EXTRA thick and takes a bit of effort to cut with standard dispensers.

              A:  I think the tape itself is probably waterproof since it seems to be of some kind of plastic. But I would be concerned about water seeping under the tape it self and penetrating the "package". I also don't know how long the mastic would hold up to water if underwater. Sorry!

              A:  The tape repels water and can easily be wiped if needed. Very good product. Best packing tape I've ever purchased.

              by|Nov 11, 2020

              A:  To what extent? Drops of water would roll off for sure, but if the box is soaked the tape will likely come undone after awhile.

                It's strong, but it doesn't stick to the cardboard well, it peels off. IT IS NOT FOR CARDBOARD BOXES.

                3M Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape Fails
                This heavy duty shipping tape does not stick to cartons. Tape peels off within a couple days. And these are brand new cartons. Horrible. Would not recommend.

                  Heavy duty as it said, used for sealing delivery boxes.
