Decent price if you need to tape up boxes.

There is a little plastic guard over the blade which will need removing before use. Worth keeping the guard too. Don't go touching the blade though because a reviewer ended up getting a bit bloody from doing so.

Shame it wasn't this price when I recently bought one from eBay instead for the same amount. I only say this for having the Amazon customer service. Nothing wrong with my one and it seems to function well from testing it.

For those without having Prime there are sellers from £6.01.

Thanks OP.

Do you know have any good deals on packing tape please?
50 or so rolls
I’ve had a few of these over the years and you’re better spending a little extra for a decent one. The Pacplus HPG50B is £9.27 and really good.
£3.95 at Toolstation, Or £12.62 with 12 rolls of brown tape.
This is a good tape gun. Does the job for me!

I don't know any good deals for that sort of quantity. What I would say is to get some of decent quality for a bit extra because cheap tape can have or lose how sticky it is. That is what I have read in reviews. Having said that; I have for the past few years been using Lidl clear parcel tape. It isn't always stocked though. I don;t have a business which requires masses of taping. I just tape things up for returns or to help with moving things.

For 25mm tape I recently bought a 6 pack of Scotch Easy Tear tape from Amazon. It was posted by a fellow member a few days ago.
It is all fine posting alternative tape dispensers. They do have different builds and performance.

The following Amazon 2017 review by barrystuarthargreaves helped me make my decision on this Rapesco:

Having read the one and two star reviews on this product I must never again underestimate the rank stupidity of some of the great British public. Flimsy?. You could stand on the damn thing. No instructions?. Duh, they're clearly printed on the box. Plastic tape cutter?. It's a protective cover Sherlock. Anyhoo, it works brilliantly and is superb value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. p.s. Don't use cheap tape. Get the heavy duty stuff.

I did read reviews of other tape dispensers on various websites inc. eBay. Some with X lots of tape rolls included. Other tape dispensers had some good reviews or were a mixed bag. It is all well and good getting a load of tape rolls included but if they are of poor quality.....waste of resources. I didn't require lots of rolls of tape as mine is just for home use and I already have 3 rolls to use with it..

Some of the reviews left do make you think had they even used the product.
