Question What's the strongest dbl sided tape? What do you use?

I've been trying to find a really strong dbl sided tape that I can use to line clippies. I clicked on a few links in my search but some of the threads have been purged due to the new "for sale" sub-forum rules.

What would you say is the strongest tape?

What is your favorite tape to use?

Thanks so much girls!

I can't speak from personal experience but my impression from what I've read here is that Manufacturer's Specialty D670?? (I forget the exact numbers) is the best and that there is a 3M product that is a close second.

Thanks Kel I wrote to them about a week ago and asked for a sample.

I LOVE Sealah tape from Jodees but it's pretty expensive. Specialty tape comes in second, and considering I get it from a HipGirl for $5 per roll (compared to $17 for Sealah) it's what I now use.

EDIT:

I totally have to edit my response on this one, sorry Maxine.

I will no longer be using tape to line clips for bows or embellishments. I bought the roll of Sealah tape and then like three rolls of Specialty tape back in January to prepare for a show I had coming up. I lined ALL of my clips with the tape. I made a TON of bows and the show ended up being more of a flea market than the "craft show" I was told it would be. So, I came home with almost all of the bows, and they have since been hanging on ribbon on my pegboard display in my craft studio. I also put a few out for sale at a local hair salon that sells my items.

Well...I just went in the other day to refill and change out my items at the salon and was MORTIFIED to find that my bows are all pulling away from the clip. I had to pull so many of them to bring home to fix, I am so embarrassed. Not only that, but this means that the bows that I made at that time that have since sold (either in the salon or on Etsy or whatnot) are probably pulling away from the clip on my customers!!!!

So I came home and checked the rows of bows sitting on my display......yep, they are ALL pulling away from the clip.

Honestly, I am almost at the end of my rope with my clip lining abilities - I mean, it isn't rocket science, right? So why does this happen to me???

When I first started out my clips did the same thing, so I researched and switched from low temp to high temp glue gun and started using Surebonder glue sticks (that specifically said for metal). As far as I can tell, the bows made once I did that switch haven't had issues.

Then I switched to tape right before the show because I had such a large volume of clips to do in a short time. It certainly made the process easier and more fun, but now THIS.

I've now switched to using tape AND glue to line clips for bows or embellishments (even a clippie with a petal cap on it started pulling up on me) - and will just use the rest of the tape I have to line plain clips. Once I run out, I won't be purchasing again.

Just wanted to let you know, Maxine, that my opinion had changed.

Do you have a link for the girl that sells it here Danielle? I don't believe I'm familiar with that particular tape.

Maxine,

I did a search through my subscribed threads, and can't find it. It may have been purged with the new sales rules. I cannot remember her HG screen name (hopefully someone else will come along who knows it) but I am almost positive that her website is KatesCraftStore.com.

Her thread had kufi's, legwarmers, felt, alligator clips, and the double sided tape. Darn these thread purges, or I could have linked you. sorry.

I think her thread got deleted in the purge. I believe her screen name is Sweethairclips I use the one I get from her and I love it. I do add a dab of hot glue in the pinch and at the end for a little added security.

I know some people are visual here are some lined with the specialty tape

I only use tape to line my clips and have been getting it from her for at least the last two years and I love it. I dont use any other glue or anything and have never had a problem with them coming up. I just ordered another 4 more rolls that should be here monday, she ships cheap and quick.

This may be a stupid question but do you use 3/8 or 1/4 tape?
