Monkey Grip tape is clear, double-sided tape that's meant to be reused up to hundreds of times. This tape comes in eight-foot rolls and has been designed to attach virtually anything to nearly any surface without causing damage to that surface when it's eventually peeled off. Four small pieces of this tape will be able to lift and support up to 25 pounds, while even more pieces may be able to support the weight of a medium-framed human being.
The cost of Monkey Grip is $19.95 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Monkey Grip at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $29.93.

If you want to attach an object to a particular surface (such as a table or a wall) with this tape, you can start by sticking one or more pieces of tape to that surface. Alternatively, you could choose to attach one or more pieces to the object, an option that will also come in handy if you're looking to attach two fairly small objects to one another.
Next, create a bond by pushing your chosen object against your chosen surface or by pushing two objects together. Since each side of your tape will be double-sided, any bond that you create should be quite secure. Once you've created the bonds that you want to with your tape, you can either use the objects you've taped or walk away and continue about your daily business.
If you decide that you want to break the bond you've created with your tape, you'll need to detach an object you've taped to a certain surface or pull two bonded objects apart. Doing this shouldn't damage any of the objects or surfaces involved, and no sticky residue from the tape should be left behind. Once your tape is free from being stuck to anything, you can go on and use it to tape up something else, if you choose.
Monkey Grip tape is made of a gel compound, which is what's purported to make it so strong, long-lasting and durable, along with some help from its unique length, width, and thickness.
This type of tape is clear and transparent, so you'll barely be able to see it once you've attached it to something. The fact that it's double-sided will make it especially discreet, as you'll be able to attach it directly to the backside of an object without letting it touch the front at all.
Unless it gets damaged by something like water or sand, you can expect this tape to stay sticky through up to hundreds of uses per piece. Depending on how often you tape things, that means one roll will probably last you at least a few months and may even last you for several years.
Each roll of Monkey Grip tape contains eight feet of this clear adhesive, and these rolls come in sets of two, so you'll actually get 16 feet of it each time you obtain some more. Even if you were to use each piece of tape in your possession only once, you'd still have enough tape to bond more than a few objects together.
If you've got small to medium-sized pieces of furniture that keep sliding about on your non-carpeted floors, you'll be able to use this tape to hold them steadily in place. To do so, just attach a piece of double-sided tape to each leg of each piece of furniture, and each leg should remain firmly stuck to the floor. This may even work on carpeted floors, although it may not work as effectively as it will on floors of the non-carpeted variety.
Monkey Grip tape is also ideal for holding objects in place that you don't want little hands to move. If your kids can't move delicate objects or ones that have the potential to make a mess, because they're taped down with this tape, they won't be able to knock them over and cause damage.
Since this tape is so strong, you can use it to attach your smartphone or tablet to a wall, your car window or another flat surface without worrying about the device clattering to the floor. This will help you read from your device at eye level when it's necessary for your work or leisure activities. Plus, after you've detached your tablet or phone from whatever surface you've attached it to, there should be no sticky, gummy tape residue left behind on the device.
If you don't like drilling holes in your walls and using nails to hang up photographs or framed pieces of art, you'll be happy to find out that this tape is a viable alternative. As long as you use enough tape to support each framed image, each one should stay firmly stuck to your wall for as long as you want it to. For most framed images, a piece of tape extending down the full length of each side should work well.
If you're looking for extremely wide pieces of tape, the width of each roll of Monkey Grip tape might disappoint you, as it appears as if each piece will be less than an inch wide. To get the same effect as you'd get with wider pieces of tape, you'll have to line up multiple pieces of this tape beside each other (horizontally).
Without a clear double-sided tape like this one, you might choose to glue certain objects together with clear glue when you want to create a bond. However, if you go that route, you'll have to sit and wait for the glue to dry before using the objects again. On the other hand, there's no waiting period involved with Monkey Grip tape—as soon as you finish creating a bond, the objects in question will be ready for action. If you decide to break the bond, you also won't have to spend a ton of time picking glue off of either of the objects. Instead, you'll be able to rip off one or more pieces of tape in just seconds.
If you're a frequent user of tape, whether you use it for crafting, home repairs or something else entirely, you may end up obtaining dozens of rolls of tape each year. Getting all these rolls will be a thing of the past once you start using Monkey Grip tape, though, since you'll be able to use it over and over again.
When your rolls of Monkey Grip tape aren't in use, store them in a place in which they likely won't be exposed to water or dirt. This goes for pieces of tape you've ripped off objects and are going to reuse, too. If this tape is exposed to water, or if any sticky parts collect dirt, this might interfere with its future stickiness and reusability.
