Tough Tape

16 Votes

Rate this product

Tough Tape is like ordinary duct tape, but it's tougher and stronger. Its design was inspired by the tape used by the United States military to fix certain helicopter blades during the Vietnam War. This tape comes in two different shades, including black and tan, and each large roll contains 30 feet of tape. With each large roll, you'll also get a smaller, super-compact roll that's perfect for the car. One set of Tough Tape consists of two large 30-foot rolls and two small ones.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Tough Tape is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Tough Tape at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $31.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buytoughtape.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Tough Tape and has taken down the website. Tough Tape may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Each piece of tape that you rip from a Tough Tape roll will provide you with an airtight and watertight seal. It'll also be able to withstand more than 200 pounds of weight and travel at a speed of up to 100 miles per hour without tearing or otherwise losing its effectiveness. Therefore, you'll be able to use this tape to securely hold almost anything together, regardless of whether the objects you're dealing with are large or delicate and small.

Features

  • Two Different Shades

    This tape comes in two different shades, Tactical Black and Desert Tan, so you can select the shade that you think will look best with most of the objects you need to repair.

  • Textured Top Layer

    Each roll of tape has a textured top layer, so you'll be able to wrap some of it around virtually any tool or piece of sports equipment to provide yourself with a slip-resistant grip.

  • Portable

    All Tough Tape rolls are portable, which means you'll be able to take one wherever you need to in order to complete repairs. The smaller rolls, at about half the size of the larger ones, are perfect for you to stash in your vehicle's glove compartment or even in your pants pocket. However, even the larger rolls will fit in a glove compartment, a backpack and all but the smallest purses, too.

  • Waterproof

    The watertight seal that any piece of this tape has to offer makes it a great choice for repairing objects that might get wet, whether those things are inside or out. Indoors, you may want to use it to seal a crack in your shower or a leaky pipe, while it'll effectively repair pool toys and / or lawn furniture outside.

  • No Sticky Residue

    When you need to remove this tape from something you've previously attached it to, this won't be headache for you, as it'll slide off any object without leaving behind sticky residue. This makes it an ideal type of adhesive to use when you want to paint your walls while also covering your trim to protect it from splatters.

  • More Than 60 Feet

    In each set of Tough Tape, you'll get more than 60 feet of this super-durable tape in total, since each set contains two 30-foot rolls and two smaller rolls. That'll likely be enough tape to complete dozens of repairs at home or at work.

Positive Points

  • For Indoor and Outdoor Use

    Some types of tape are designed especially for use inside the home, while others are designed specifically for outdoor use. Tough Tape, however, can be used for virtually any repair job, regardless of location. If you've got an outdoor object that may be exposed to heavy winds to repair, such as a shed door or camping tent, you won't need to worry about this tape holding up. Its airtight seal will enable it to stay secure when exposed to wind speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, a speed that helicopters often fly at.

Negative Points

  • Can't Mix Shades

    When you choose a set of Tough Tape, you can't get two rolls in black and two in tan, or any mix of shades like this—all rolls in a set will be the same shade. There's also no clear / transparent option, which would come in handy if you wanted to repair clear or light-colored objects discreetly. In order to have the option of using more than one shade of this tape, you'll need to obtain two sets ( or eight rolls ).

Alternatives

  • Ordinary Duct Tape

    Many people choose to use ordinary duct tape to perform indoor and outdoor repairs around the house, but most varieties of duct tape won't offer as strong a seal as Tough Tape does. When exposed to wear and tear through object use, or outdoor elements like harsh weather, ordinary duct tape will often begin peeling off, making it necessary that you repair the same object again and again. Some varieties of standard duct tape aren't even a bit airtight or watertight, and will almost immediately fall off if exposed to water or heavy wind.

  • Glue

    Glue, especially hot glue from a glue gun, will often effectively hold objects together when you're performing a repair. Using glue isn't as fast a method as using Tough Tape, though, as you'll need to wait for a hot glue gun to heat up and you'll have to wait for any glue to dry. With Tough Tape, you'll be able to put one or more pieces on in seconds and have a fully repaired object without the extended wait.

Save Time

When you start using Tough Tape, it's likely that you won't spend as much time on home repairs as you would otherwise. Not only will you be able to complete a wide variety of repairs in minutes, this tape's hold is so strong that you likely won't need to re-repair anything for months or even years.
