Extra-sticky duct tape

with one comment

From Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools email:

Gorilla Tape — Sticks to a brick

Gorilla Tape is duct tape raised to a higher power. It is both stronger and stickier; you can use it on rough surfaces where duct tape won’t stick. I have used a variety of similar tapes, from the Army’s green 200 mph tape to the fabled Electric Boat tape that Submariners are familiar with. Gorilla Tape sticks better and holds longer than the best quality duct tape in everything I have used it for. It is also waterproof (once applied) and because of the thicker adhesive, less prone to peeling.

  1. Portland (Oregon)’s St. John’s Bridge, which is very near my house, has been undergoing a renovation (which ended recently) for a few years. During the renovation, one of the workers fell off the bridge but was saved from death (it’s a very high bridge) by grabbing a strip of industrial duct tape, which he clung to until he could be rescued. Very useful stuff!
