The Easiest Way To Start A Tape Roll


This Hack Will Make Starting A Tape Roll Easy Every Time

How many times have you tried to start a tape roll and found yourself frustrated? If you’ve ever picked at a sticky tape roll to start it, you know it is never easy. One day, I started doing this hack that changed the way I store and start my tape. Try it and you’ll have a much easier time starting it every time.

Man starting a roll of tapeThis hack works with any roll of tape. The trick is that once you’ve used the tape, fold it underneath at a 45-degree angle and press to form a crease. Tear off the excess and now you’ve created a pull tab that you can use to start your tape roll.  If you do this each time you use a roll of tape, you’ll have a starting point every time.
