Vinyl Tape and PVC Cement
Stop vinyl electrical tape from unravelling with just one drop.
I use vinyl electrical tape for all sorts of things, such as wrapping tool handles for a better grip and repairing extension cords. It doesn’t matter whether you tear or cut the tape when you’ve finished wrapping; it inevitably starts to unravel. I solve this problem by dabbing a drop of plumber’s PVC cement on the very end of the tape as I finish the wrap. This welds the tape’s end and prevents future unraveling.
