Gorilla Tape has taken duct tape to a new level. This double thick adhesive tape surpasses ordinary duct tapes, making the list of uses virtually endless. Made with double thick adhesive, strong reinforced backing, and a tough all-weather shell, it’s the biggest, strongest, toughest thing ever to happen to duct tape. Gorilla Tape is manufactured with a highly concentrated rubber based adhesive – two to three times as thick as traditional duct tape. The result is a tape that fills gaps and penetrates rough surfaces. It sticks to rough and uneven surfaces, including wood, stone, stucco and brick, that ordinary duct tapes can't hold. To us, it’s made the way tape should be: The Toughest on Planet Earth. Directions: Use like any other tape. Tear Gorilla Tape by hand or cut to size with a knife or scissors. It is important to clean the surface and brush off any loose particles and dirt before applying Gorilla Tape. Apply the tape carefully, smoothing out any pockets or rolls. That’s it. Enjoy the strength and durability of Gorilla Tape! To retain adhesive quality, store Gorilla Tape in a cool, dry place. Keep out of direct sunlight. Try storing the tape vertically (rather than laying flat), on a hook or on wax paper. If you have multiple rolls, keep your excess supply wrapped until they’re needed. Gorilla Tape works best at temperatures above 32°F (0°C). For best results, always apply the tape at room temperature. If Gorilla Tape freezes, it will work just fine once it returns to room temperature. Gorilla Tape can be removed, but with some difficulty and it may leave some residue. To remove any excess residue, we recommend using the tape itself as a blotter. Gorilla Tape should not be used as an electrical tape. We’ve found that Gorilla Tape will last a lot longer than regular duct tapes when it comes in contact with moisture.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry H. Bond on March 5, 2015
For fear of being placed on some kind of secret government watch list as a DUCT TAPE hoarder, I won’t admit how much Duct Tape I’ve purchased over the past few years. I will say that I use DUCT TAPE more times a day than I eat.

I am constantly using duct tape as extra hands to temporarily hold my project pieces in place for the initial gluing, nailing, stapling, screwing ... or more duct taping. The easy-to-tear and cheaper 5-mil tape is a blessing for this purpose.

Reviews on duct tape are all over the place. So is duct tape. I was specifically interested in the adhesiveness and tensile strength of the 3 leading brands of black duct tape. I needed hard evidence, something tangible I could STICK with. The first thing I did was look at the thickness and cost based on prices effective 3/3/15.

Scotch TOUGH Heavy Duty All Weather.
26.31 cents per yard and the mil thickness is not listed and might be explained later in my review.

Intertape Polymer Group IG2PK-A Grip Black Heavy Duty.
25.36 cents per yard and 17-mil thick.

Gorilla Tape.
25.66 cents per yard and 17-mil thick.

The rubber adhesiveness when tested on a variety of surfaces did not reveal a discernible difference between the 3 brands. It grabs and sticks. As one comment said, “It’s ALIVE!”

The Scotch tape is crinkled or wavy on the roll and if cut cleanly, the edge is hard to locate. I had to use a shop magnifying light.

For years, at the end of the fireplace season, I have placed a heavy tarp over the top of a brick chimney and secured it with black duct tape. Every brand I’ve tried except Gorilla Tape has shredded and loosened before the following season.

I’ve had Gorilla Tape holding a heavy tarp on a brick chimney for 2 years and it is still holding firm and not raveling.

The tensile strength test really surprised me. I took several samples of each brand and folded the tape, adhesive side in, creating double-thickness strips 1/2-inch wide. I placed one end in a bench vice with padded jaws so the metal would not break the tape. I placed the other end in the cushioned jaws of a Vice-Grip. (A piece of bicycle inner tube works great for this purpose.) A new Rapala digital fishing scale hooked to the Vice-Grip would reveal at what weight the strip of tape would break.

I ran 5 tests on each brand of tape and the results were consistent and conclusive.

The Scotch TOUGH Heavy Duty Tape broke at a mere 5 pounds. I thought I was doing something wrong. It is WEAK tape.

The Intertape Polymer Tape broke at 14 pounds. Not bad. I can live with that.

The Gorilla Tape broke at a whopping 28 pounds. WHOA!

Try this test yourself if you have any doubts.

If you don’t have a fishing scale, you can tie a bucket (known weight) to a rail with a strand of black duct tape and place items of known weight into the bucket until the tape breaks.

An 800-pound Gorilla can sit anywhere he wants to in my house.

HonestReview- this tape is strong like a Gorilla's grip.......perhaps its called Gorilla tape for that reason ORRRR this is the tape that Gorilla's use to fix their Gorilla houses? Either way I tested it on my arm......... for you know, testing purposes, and ladies forget waxing, just use this tape and it will rip your hair's clean off! I use this tape for my gigs to hide wires so people don't trip over the wires. I also used the white Gorilla tape to fix a rip on my front bumper of my truck. Yes a rip not a crack, it was ripped about 5" long or so. Please see picture. Don't mind the Zombie decal....I put it over the tape so people don't notice the tape as much. I've had the Gorilla tape on there for over a year now, and it's still going strong. I don't normally give products 5 stars, but this one exceeds my expectations. It's freakin strong like a Gorilla!
Thick tape but poor adhesive properties.

2.0 out of 5.0 by Rocketiz on February 6, 2018
I needed a strong and sticky duct tape for a variety of uses. This tape disappointed me greatly.
The positive thing about this tape is that it is thick and will not easily fall apart. The negative
attribute is that the adhesive is crummy. If you believe previous reviews, at one time this tape
was sticky, but I find that it is only weakly sticky in it's current form. (Also for some reason
they didn't seem to offer me free shipping with 25$ order or I misunderstood).
So I contacted the manufacturer about this problem since they made a comment that they assigned a case number and wanted me to talk with them. The result was that they offered to send me a coupon for some tape if I returned the old tape. They blame the retailer for the bad adhesive properties saying maybe they stored it incorrectly?? They would NOT just replace the tape with something that actually sticks??
So I called Amazon since this product was a "Amazon Choice" item and they at least offered to send a new
roll of tape. Based on any new tape I may rewrite my review. Amazon was much more accommodating than the manufacturer.
Using it for minor tolex repairs

5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby W. on September 30, 2017
I own a number of musical products, primarily wooden guitar cases, that are covered with "Tolex," which is a black, pebble textured material. I assume that genuine Tolex is pretty rugged stuff, but like "scotch" tape, the term is applied to anything approximating the real deal.

Anyway, over time some of my tolex covered items have been dinged and cracked here and there, and in some cases, you can see some of the underlying wood, so I started looking for a good repair option.

Black electrical tape seemed like a good choice, but the different types I tried started to lift soon after application. This black Gorilla brand tape seems like the perfect solution. It's thick, and it has a very aggressive adhesive and is supposed to hold up to the elements. It is shiny, but small patches here and there blend and conceal nicely.

I will update my review if necessary, but so far, for my primary purpose, this stuff is fantastic.
What does the apocalypse and a $9 Amazon gift card have in common?

Gorilla tape. Cannibal test, mutant approved.

What's in the picture? Gorilla tape, holding the completely broken passenger-side mirror of my Kia Optima firmly in place after my ex-wife introduced it to the wall of our apartment garage... So what's the big deal? Well, the mirror weighs about 3-4 lbs and would otherwise hang freely from it's wiring. The Gorilla tape in the photo has held that mirror firmly in place for three years. That's three years in Dallas, Texas: Brutally hot humid summers, drowning in sunlight. Traveling thousands of miles at tollway speeds against 65-75 mph headwinds. And yet, the tape still holds. So well, in fact, that that I can still use the electric motor to position the mirror. The mirror has even gone three state safety inspections without comment.
big waste of money

1.0 out of 5.0 by Computers are my thing on June 11, 2018
My leather center console in my car came apart from the hard plastic and I needed this fixed and thought of this tape. Well I got situated in the car and angled in the right position, started tucking in the leather in preparation for this great tape. I pulled out a piece long enough to cover one side and slowly and evenly slide the monster holding GORILLA tape into place. I went to cut the second piece of this manly tape for the other side and notice that the first side was coming off. I proceeded to smooth out this fabulous tape back into place and grab the second piece tape again to smooth onto the second side and damnit the first side is coming off again...WTF !!! putting the second piece onto another part of my car and trying to smoothing this sh*tty tape down again and sat there looking at it as it peeled away AGAIN. I went into the house and found my red duct tape...but that wouldn't match then saw my black electrical tape and went back to the car...the Capuchin tape had peeled off so I took it the rest of the way off and used electrical tape and no more problem. Don't waste your money on this crappy tape. Stick to duct or electrical tape. Car looks good again.
I think you could repair anything with this tape.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale C. Flowers on July 7, 2017
Best tape I have ever used. I bought it to repair the sun damaged seat of my riding lawn mower. The seat was cracked and falling apart but it's good as new now after taping it back together with Gorilla Tape. I gave it a try because I had so much good luck with Gorilla Glue. This tape will not disappoint you. A roll of this is going into my post-apocalyptic bug-out bag. This is the JB Weld of tape.
don't repair rain boots with this. won't stick.

1.0 out of 5.0 by Elise A. Miller on April 18, 2018
I feel like a sucker. The standard, ugly silver tape no-name brand from the local hardware store works. This tape does not stick to rubber or wood, no matter how clean and dry. i wanted to repair my old Hunter rain boots, but this tape won't stick. it picks up the color from the boots though, every time it comes off. it doesn't mold well to angled or curved surfaces, since it's so thick. As soon I press it into place, the corners pop up. How is this "gorilla" worthy? PS there are DOZENS of one star reviews that echo this sentiment. Wish I'd read them and saved myself the hassle.
strong, smells like ribber tires, won't stick to wood

4.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy The Frog on December 27, 2017
Seems to be plenty strong, but smells like rubber tires?

No doubt, it is very VERY strong when wrapped and stuck to itself in particular. There is no give to it, so no stretch/cling wrapping.
I used this to wrap around the joint between to bee hives in order to prevent wind from getting in... within a day, the tape came off of the painted wood and did not hold.

I also tried to wrap an oxidized hydraulic hose, but it failed to adhere to the rubber jacket of the hoses adequately, primarily because again, there is no give or stretch to the tape. Not yet sure what I'll be using it for, but I'm not much of a fan at the moment.
This patch will get a good workout, given we live in the Pacific NW

5.0 out of 5.0 by ClarkDGigHbr on October 2, 2017
I needed something to repair a (~2") hole in a porch furniture cover. [The hole was courtesy of some nesting hornets over the summer.] My brother, a chemist, suggested using Gorilla Tape because it has substantially more adhesive than other products. The manufacturer's product description reinforces that claim, and it further states the product is ideal for rough surfaces. I patched the hole with strips of tape on both the inside and outside surfaces of the furniture cover. Then (at my brother's suggestion) I heated the tape a bit using a heat gun on a medium setting. This patch will get a good workout, given we live in the Pacific NW. I am quite hopeful it will work out fine.
