There’s a Better Way: Manage Sticky Tape Roll
Construction tapes just get tougher and stickier, and harder to cut and harder to peel away from the roll. Here’s a trick I use to make both tasks easier. As shown in the drawing, I pull back a flap of tape and slip the blade of a single-edge razor under it. The tape sticks to the blade, giving me a handle on the tape when I’m ready to unroll some of it. Then I peel off the razor, use it to cut the tape, and stick the razor back in place until needed again.
