Zitriom LLC’s Six-Pack of Packing Tape and Dispenser

We often have and use things regularly without thinking about them much, or if there’s another brand out there besides what we’ve always used. Packaging tape is one of those things. We always bought 3m’s Scotch tape, despite being continuously frustrated by it’s performance. And I can tell you that yes, sometimes, the grass really is greener on the other side, and we’ll be buying Zitriom LLC’s packing tape from here on out!

To start, Zitriom’s tape thicker than the Scotch brand tape, considerably so. And while that doesn’t sound like much, not only does it make it stronger, but it also means it’s not going to just flop over and stick to itself, or to something unintended as so often the case with the Scotch brand tape. It also stayed stuck. Which sounds like a “Well, duh!” statement, but until you’ve tried to secure boxes with tape that won’t stay stuck on, don’t “Duh!” me! The tape we’ve been using was always a crapshoot as to whether it’d stay stuck on things, and that will make you want to rip your hair out after a few failures. Zitriom’s tape stayed put, period. The one thing that I didn’t care for was the dispenser. Having used a “Tape Gun” now for a couple of decades, I found the dispenser flimsy, awkward and for me, dangerous. Maybe it was me, maybe I’m out of practice, but I tossed it almost immediately and stuck the Zitriom tape in my gun and never looked back. So look at the dispenser as a “Value Added” thing and not a make-or-break item in the set.

You get 6 rolls of premium packaging tape (each roll is 1.90″ x 55 yards) for $10.98, which is almost 20% less than the closest version of the Scotch brand tape. It’s not heavy duty, but it’s plenty thick and I found it to be better than the 3M tape I was using, so I was happy with Zitriom’s version of this and will buy it again when I need tape.
