Duct Tape for the Haunt World

I thought of this topic as a friend of mine needed something to hang his stockings from the wall with care this year at the local theater he works at. When i was telling my wife about this story she stopped me half way through and asked me, “what’s Gaff Tape”. After I explained, i figured, tis the season to talk about Gaff Tape.

Gaff Tape is a strong, tough, cotton cloth that is pressure sensitive, with strong adhesive properties. It is used in theater, film and television productions as well as during live performances and any other kind of stage work. While related to duct tape, it differs in that it can be removed cleanly because it uses a synthetic rubber adhesive rather than a natural rubber adhesive.[3] The tape is often referred to as a production expendable because it is discarded after the production process is complete.

As a haunter or Halloween enthusiast, you can probably think of dozens of ways to use this if you don't use it already. Running the Largest Haunt in Wisconsin I can tell you that it comes in handy, from taping up costumes to keeping curtains and secret spots covered in a pinch.

Other names for Gaff tape are as follows:

  • Gaffer tape
  • Gaffa tape
  • 200 miles per hour tape
  • Duct tape that's not shiny
  • Bookbinding tape
  • Bus seat repair tape
  • Dutchman's tape
  • Grip tape
  • Helicopter tape
  • Matte tape
  • Racer tape

SO next time you need something to hold that power cord to the ceiling, or even keep your pants up cause you left your belt at home. Turn to Gaff Tape! it is AWESOME!
